    Looks like the Virgin car is doing pretty good in the wet. Or maybe it’s just becaus they did a lot of laps.

    Nice to see that Alonso, Hamilton, and Kubica were doing the best they could do in that one lap – fastest lap at the same time being the ultimate one.

  3. I was going to ask why the HRT was three seconds slower than the Lotus, but no, It’s just Sakon…

    Anyone think Senna could fight his way off the back of the grid?
