Q3:

GRID:

á      A raft of grid penalties making another mockery of the grid at yet another race.  We came into qualifying with Vandoorne on 5 places, Verstappen on 15, Hulkenberg 20, and Hartley on 25. Then they awarded Magnussen with 3 places for impeding Perez in free practise. Of course, he canŐt drop down from 20th but with the other penalised drivers getting their penalties before him he moves up to 18th!! Stroll did some impeding as well so was awarded a penalty, but having qualified in 17th place now finds himself  in 16th.  DonŐt ask!!!

á      Vandoorne got awarded extra penalties for changing components so went to the back and pushed everybody up oneÉ
