Anyway it wasn't real clear as to who is on the top, the rain & mixed conditions added to further speculation as to which are the top 3 teams & which are the mid field teams!

However, it's somewhat evident that Mclaren (either Button or Hamilton), would get pole! Mercedes are looking strong & both Schumacher & Rosberg are potential front runners as well!

Red Bull are strong but don't seem as strong as last year! The frustration on Vettel's face was evident in an interview yesterday!

Sadly, Raikkonen is struggling with getting a comfortable steering output from his car which could hamper his performance in the qualifying & race!

There are still lot of Ifs & Buts but whatever the scenario, everything looks great for F1!

is it just me, or does vettel never learn from his mistakes? he continually puts the rear tyre on the paint, and it ALWAYS bites him in the donkey

My biggest anticipation for qualifying, I must admit, is seeing if Ferrari really are as bad as their car looks...

The V8 race has left a lot of rubbish on the second corner after a pileup. It could affect qualifying laps.

I would love to see Hamilton smack Red Bull and Button. I wouldnt be complaining at all if it was Mercedes either but I do not see it happening after the late rush by the likes of Renault and Red Bull.

I think Seb will be on pole followed by Lewis and Rosberg. Then Button, Webber & Schumi.
Based on nothing else but my gut feeling which is usually wrong :)

Not here its 1:30am. Just early enough ;)

By the way. Just so we're clear. Massa/SV/MS same error, but only Massa is a chump? So much bias in the coverage..

I'm going to go for a Hamilton pole, but after that I'm not sure of anything (other than the fact Sky is going to be the most used word in this thread :-(( ). I'm obviously hoping for a McLaren 1 - 2 but Red Bull are still a complete mystery to me.
