And that is why these tyres are fairy cakes. People not even bothering to go out in Q3, it's bollocks.

Also pathetic of FOM not to give Force India any coverage. Acting like children.

er, what? Kimi out-qualified Romain for the last two Grand Prix, while making an error in qualifying in the first GP of the season. Grosjean beat Kimi today on his second run only, while Kimi elected not to go out again in a poor strategy decision. I don't know how you can possibly infer from that that Romain is consistently out-qualifying Kimi. Speed wise Kimi has looked to have the edge on Romain all season so far


You're right, I just check the results and it's 2-2 and I didn't realise Kimi didn't get a second run today -I guess im impressed that he's proving a worthy match for Kimi so far (albeit a rusty Kimi)

Hamilton vs Vettel in the race plus Schumacher and Raikonen starting out of position should be entertaining

Hopefully not, they ruined F1 last season and I think everyone bar Vettel fans would hate to see them do it again. It was shaping up to be a great season too.

Red Bull love this track. The hot temps must help them as well because they are kind on their tyres unlike Merc.

It'll be a Red Bull winner tomorrow. I don't doubt that.

In the last 3 races, they've seemed to be better on race pace, so this bodes well for them, I think.

These tyres are giving us the best racing in a long time, did you watch the Chinese GP? Most would prefer an exciting race to seeing 10 drivers do a lap in Q3, of which maybe 4-5 at most are actually in contention for pole.

I want to see an F1 race not an exercise in tyre saving.
