  1. Petrov and Chandok changed their gearboxes, not engines. An engine change would incur a 10 place penalty =)

  2. Well done to KOB for his effort in Q2. Looks like Red Bull are the team to beat in quali still.

  3. now we’ll finally be able to see how ferrari and mclaren compare during a full race against the red bulls.

  4. if the race ended like the grid positions the championship would looke like this-
    BUT-70
    HAM-64
    VET-63
    ALO-61
    ROS-54
    WEB-53

      That would be perfect for me. :D

      Go McLaren :D

  5. hope Alonso won’t jump start again!
    and bravo for Schumacher, finally beaten his team mate in quali, huh..

  6. Massa won’t make it to turn 2…he has Kobayashi and Sutil behind him.

    1. massa has good straight line speed with a working f duct.

        massa has good straight line speed with a working f duct…………….and uses his brakes. :/

        1. oh yeah. didn’t understand the crash connotations!

        2. Maybe it is just me, but doesn’t “f duct” sound like fu***ng duct?

      Haha yeah, one of them’s bound to take him out!

    3. that’s a bit unfair on KOB. he’s never caused a crash. in Australia his front wing got jammed under his car! in china he got rammed by a flying liuzzi. the othre two races he retired.

      1. Two words:

        Brazil. Nakajima!

        1. well ok, but i meant the crashes he’s been in himself haven’t neccesarily been his fault.

  7. My scenario:

    Webber holds onto the lead whilst Hamilton pips Vettel for second. Alonso possibly makes up a place too. Then it all becomes about tyre wear, with the first front-runner pitting winning.

    1. Also, just saw on twitter that Jonathan Legard has said Red Bull and McLaren predict rain for the second half of the race. It was predicted in Malaysia too, but if it happens, I’m going for a McLaren win.

  8. I reckon the Virgins and Chandok should start from the pitlane. They’ll miss out on the first corner shinanegans, if there are any.

    The Spanish fans won’t like Hamilton being in front of Alonso …

  10. hate to think it, but the most talented driver next to the most complete driver, being the two most aggressive drivers, p3 and p4? afraid they are maybe the two most likely to be out after turn 1 – don’t think Vettel will withstand the survivor, the kid has great talent but might get schooled…
