Not much to make of practice times like last weekend.

Maldonado will crash out of the race again, any takers? :mamoru:

What a weird quali
Kimi tops q1 and shummi barely makes it
Kimi p10 then shummi p4 for final result

Tomorrow should be interesting. Hopefully no rain. And I forgot how narrow this track is :o

I think Alonso needs to let Hamilton un-lap himself so it doesn't cost him more time ontrack

I think Fred is driving better than ever this year. Think he has this chip in the bag as long as Ferrari can keep up with development.

This was a meh race for me... don't know why, just couldn't get into it...
that said, i'm curious about Lotus's double DRS system and what RedBull is up to...

Can someone explain to me as i I was a 5 year old what RB is trying to pull? Something about off throttle and torque coming from the engine...

Fred's got this. And totally deserved. He is driving brilliantly...remember that old Alonso quote "I give .6 to the car" yeah...it's true :o

I think Button's got a stronger mind than Hamilton. Not only did he out race his teammate, but a puncture and Hamilton is saying "We need to retire guys" Really?

Vettel burnnnnnn. You know, before the podium, Vettel said "I didn't see you so I wanted to give you space" but on the podium he claimed Button didn't say anything. He's like Schumacher/Senna in the way they race but at least he's affable otherwise.

A significant portion of vettel's car was alongside button, clearly button didn't give him one car's width. I'm not even pulling for vettel this year, and I call BS.

Hambone has the least calm head of any of the elite guys on the grid.

I disagree.

To me, Button gave Vettel more than enough room for 2 wheels off track and didn't track out until Vettel was clearly 4-wheels off track and miles ahead of him in the paint...
