Watching the Mexican qualifying (still in progress), but Max Verstappen could be the youngest ever pole sitter here......and that's weird.
Given his form over the last three years it's a bit of a surprise that he's never qualified in front.

p.s. George Russell might not have a long career in F1 from next year.
He the same height as Paul di Resta (just over 6' (185cm)) who had to starve himself to keep within the weight limits imposed by the car design at the time and decided it was becoming detrimental to his health(?)

Never understood that.
The FIA should rule for a greater range of drivers.

Tell that to the Russian T34 tank drivers in WWII. They had to be little to get in, and had 40minutes training before being sent to the front line.

Is it not up to the driver to choose a sport he fits in, not have the sport change its rules to fit him?

They start young, so they're usually smaller.....like pet alligators.   :wink:

Since Schumacher Jnr is doing so well in Formula 3 (is it?), maybe there are dynasties.
Little girls might love ballet but if you grow up to be six foot you're not going to be a ballerina. They might love to model but unless you are six foot you won't walk the catwalk.
