I think the memory plays strange tricks, Mehryar.
I have posted several times I expected to Robert to struggle in Q and using Schu as an example. If you can find something else, please find it.

Well, don't take any offense...I remember it very well cause there are very few posters whom I read their comments fully always and mostly remember their mindset on something.You, Mike and Fran to name some...So this one was a bold one for me.

FYI. I didn't leave any times out of the statistics quoted. Compute them for yourself.
Up to and including Baku the gap was 0.15s. Overall, right up to and including Monaco, the average gap is 3.8 - still not the worst on the grid. Not good enough I agree, but six races?

Here are the gaps in Q sessions, Australia to Monaco :


Oz - Baku avg = 0.542

Oz - Monaco avg = 0.604

The bad thing about it is the fact that when they've hit Europe where George knows tracks better, the gap has increased.

Would you fire Gasly at this point?

I don't think it's a good idea to mix things up when we are comparing 2 drivers, not 3! The fact that Gasly is not performing doesn't change anything about Robert's form in compare with George...Yes, Gasly is doing terrible, does it make Kubica faster?

But the problem with this comparison is that the guy Gasly has to beat in RBR is Max! George isn't that level (I don't say he won't be, talking about present time) and he hasn't been with the team for 2.5 yrs like Max.
