Re: Looks like it could be a wet start to the season

It was more a reference to the changeability of the weather really, but I've never know rain predictions to be very accurate. Today for example was supposed to be warm, humid and windy all day. That was correct until about 11:30 when it suddenly got really cold, rained a little bit, then became war...

Re: Looks like it could be a wet start to the season

Getting closer and forecast hasn't changed. I agree with both sides. Dry = better assessment of the initial pecking order & demonstration of the new slicks (which will be the dominant tyre of the season), or Wet = guaranteed action packed race...............I'm just a little bit excited.

Re: Looks like it could be a wet start to the season

It's quite amusing that it may actually rain at the GP as we've just recorded the hottest summer on record in Melbourne, with half of the days in Feb over 30 deg C and we are about to reach 10 days in a row of over 30 deg C in March (Autumn). Today was 37 and tomorrow is forecast for 37 also. It's 9...

Re: Is it the REDBULL or is it VETTEL ?

Firstly I'll happily admit I'm a big Webber supporter. You can only compare a driver against his team mate, and in that respect, I think Webber is doing a good job, but obviously not as fast as Vettel most of the time. That aside, one explanation in relation to the smallest gap between Vettel with t...
