    Any news on weather Masse will get some kind of reprimand or grid penaly, or is it to early to know.

    • Maksutov said on 15th May 2010, 14:37

      he should…. we’ll have to wait and see

    • Mike said on 15th May 2010, 14:38

      I don’t think he will, But if he does it wouldn’t be unfair.

      • huh..? why is ruining someones timed lap ok?
        OMG

        and I hate Mclaren!!!!

        • sorry

          I didn’t notice the ‘t in “wouldn’t” and lost the plot..
          I though it was would be unfair…
          dooh
          Shame on me LOL

      I think it would be really unfair to penalise Massa. He is at the final corner trying to get some space between himself and the car ahead, that’s all he is worried about.

      It not Massa’s problem if Button just happened to find traffic at the wrong time. For Button, it’s just tough luck.

      • sato113 said on 16th May 2010, 2:07

        i’m afraid that’s not how it works. you must respect other drivers who are on hot laps.

        • Harv's said on 16th May 2010, 5:22

          yes sato113!

          it doesnt matter if you are about to start your flying lap, or you are on the third corner. it doesnt matter if it is intentional or not, blocking earns you a penalty, its unfair for button if nothing happens, forget worrying about if it would be fair on massa, because its not him who was hampered by the action.

  2. For the first time in Trulli’s f1 career, he lost out to his team mate in qualy in Monaco. Well done Heikki!

  3. sato113 said on 15th May 2010, 14:42

    i think all the drivers on the right hand side of the grid have a slight advantage as the track curves that way. (meaning a shorter run to first corner. On the clean side too of course)

  4. A Renault in a sandwich of two Red Bulls. China 09 anyone?

    • sato113 said on 15th May 2010, 15:47

      true but that was purely renault showing off with low fuel. probably to promote the brand in the chinese market.

      • BliNnk said on 15th May 2010, 17:06

        That’s crazy! Every car in the top 10 is fuelled for the whole race!

        Anyway, apparently Renault set up the car for the race and sacrificed some qualifying pace. Why would they do that in Monaco where quali is so important? Will it pay off though tomorrow?

        • sato113 said on 15th May 2010, 19:01

          that’s not crazy as i was talking about china 09. (last year you could fuel the car very light and grab a ‘fake’ pole)

  5. wong chin kong said on 15th May 2010, 15:01

    Button must out-accelerate Schumacher at the start if he wants to avoid losing precious time finding a way past Schumacher for the first few laps. I think Button was still smarting from Michael’s blockage in last weekend’s race.

  6. Todfod said on 15th May 2010, 15:23

    Its really disappointing to not see Fernando on the front row. I think he would have schooled the rest of the drivers on the grid in the race. But… lets hope some rain and safety car periods come to his rescue.

  7. Mike said on 15th May 2010, 16:29

    *Crying* I just came back to hte computer after qual and found my predictions satrring at me ready to submit.

    WHY WHY WHY???

    I even had decent guesses! ….

  8. samuel said on 15th May 2010, 18:14

    Can somebody help to explain when a car starts from pit lane when he can start off? Is it when the lights go out (i assume the light at end of the pit lane goes out at the same time with the 5 main lights) or he has to wait until the last car pass across? Is there a possibility that a car start from pit lane is more advantageous that say the 22nd or 23rd car?

    • sato113 said on 15th May 2010, 19:03

      no he either has to wait for the last car to cross the 2nd safety car line (near turn 1 most likely) or wait for the second safety car (the one behind the grid at the start) to cross it…

  9. sumedh said on 15th May 2010, 18:15

    Shouldn’t the decision on Massa’s penalty (or lack thereof) be out by now?

    If there is nothing to report on that matter, we can only assume that the stewards have passed it off as a non-issue.

    I am not in favour of a penalty to the Brazilian, but he deserves a ‘warning’ at the very least.

    • sumedh said on 15th May 2010, 18:32

      http://www.planet-f1.com/news/3213/6156178/Jense-Agrees-Massa-s-A-Plonker

      According to this, Massa has indeed escaped penalty.

      No mention of a warning either. But I doubt if the matter will fade away, with Button calling Massa a Plonker and historically, stewarding decisions being in favor of Ferrari.

      • steph said on 15th May 2010, 18:35

        I don’t usually trust Planet F1 at all but it does seem very latw in the deay if he does get a punishment.
        In think it’s a pointless argument anyway, maybe he should be penalized I said on the blog myself I thought he should but a Mclaren did exactly the same at the very end of Q1 and had a little queue behind I remember Brundle saying. He should get some reprimandn and I wouldn’t argue too strongly against a penalty but I really don’t get the fuss just about Massa esp when the blue flags were very late.

      • sato113 said on 15th May 2010, 19:06

        please dont stir up a story that BUT called MAS a plonker. read that article pleeeease!

      • David A said on 15th May 2010, 23:29

        QUOTE:

        ” Asked if Massa had been “a complete plonker,” Button replied: “Your words not mine.” “

        • sato113 said on 16th May 2010, 2:11

          yeah doesn’t really mean he described him like that.

          • Maksutov said on 16th May 2010, 9:04

            nor does it mean that Button agrees with the statement,

            but it is very likely that he does agree haha… i certainly do

  10. david said on 15th May 2010, 20:20

    hopefully button gets past schuamacher, dont want a barcelona repeat.

  11. George said on 16th May 2010, 11:39
