Pecco seems to be able to maintain the pace and keep his tires in shape to finish the race at the front. No small feat.

This is something that Jack doesn’t seem to be able to do.

Pecco must be impeccobly smooth to be able to do that. Hats off!

For sure something went wrong. He looked good every session until quali. He was super pissed.

In that case he should be able to slice through the field at the start tomorrow.

Only problem with that is he seems to have issues conserving tires when he starts from the front row. He may come up but he will then fall back.

Well then maybe this will be his day, as he most definitely is not starting from the front.

Just bad track construction?
Yes, cars can cause bumps. But that IS NOT the issue at COTA. Incredibly bad decision-making in locating the track is the issue, and it is not one which will ever be resolved.

That sucks. Michelin should be fined every time they give a rider a rotten donut.
