I'm ready! Wish we had better coverage over here though, the SpeedTV trio is frustrating to listen to.

Decisions, decisions... Sky, BBC, Sky, BBC...

Interestingly, according to my Sky box, the BBC aren't broadcasting in HD.

Flicking between channels, Sky and BBC were both interviewing Senna "live" :twisted:

Haha I've missed Eddie, straight in there asking Monisha (Sauber ceo) why they gave that radio message and then saying Perez would have won the race if it wasn't a Ferrari in 1st (although saying it might be down to the 'pressure' of being behind a ferrari)

Not much of a choice for me. Coverage in Canada starts only at the top of the hour, so I'm stuck watching online. Luckily I found a decent Sky feed. They have pretty good stuff imo. :-P

I have my fluid dynamics final exam this Tuesday, for which I haven't studied enough (even an infinite amount time wouldn't be enough). Do you think I can be excused it if I just bring them Ted Kravitz explaining downforce? :]

Anybody see Ferrari plugging something electronic into the front wing as it was being fitted? Any ideas as to what?

Button has always been strong in china, i'd say he is good for pole with lewis a close second (he will still have his penalty though)

Mercedes should be third and forth
Redbull 5th and 6th

Lotus are either gonna make a huge upset or will completely suck

I'm sticking my head out early, and I'm betting Schumi for pole. Hulk in top 10. Praying for an miracle for Alonso (lost hope for Massa).

If Massa who was 16th was fastest with the soft tyres, aren't the top drivers at risk if they don't go out?

Every qualifying Kovalainen says in an interview that he made a small mistake on his fast lap and it cost him 2-3 tenths but that it didn't make any difference. It does make a difference and that showed during the McLaren days when there wasn't a 1 second difference to the surrounding positions. :-P

Vettel out in Q2 - how long has it been since he did not make a Q3?

PS. Must hurt a bit with Webber in P1
