    That Williams looks stunning! On board shots look amazing!

  2. Someone suggested in the previous post, that Webber was looking at Vettel’s front wing after the qualifying.
    Why would he do that if he has the same thing?
    0,9 sec is a LOT between teammates, and it was there in every session, so either webber lost a lot of pace during winter, or Vettel has a different car.
    In this post unfortunately there isn’t any picture about Vettel cars. i mean where we can see his front wing.
    can anyone post a picture about Vettel’s front wing, which was used in Q today? maybe worth a look, and compare that to Webber’s wing, and maybe to a testing shot too. thx

      1. woops something went wrong with the links…
        Vettle Qual
        Webber practise

      2. is that a Q picture, or is it from friday?

        1. Webber = Friday
          Vettle = Qual

    1. I heard that he was looking at the tyres, not the front wing

      1. yeah i saw that he was looking.. got me wondering

    2. yes it is true after parking the car at pit lane webber congratulate vettle and give a very lengthy look at the car of vettle.

  3. From what I am seeing they were indeed different, let me validate these pics are from the right year before looking stupid

  4. Scrub that it was a lazy website using last years Aus photos

  5. “Kinky Kylie” is the name of Vettel’s new car?!

  6. Maybe Vettel and Webber might have had the same wings, but the difference from the others is enormous. That wing just clings to the tarmac. Thats not flexing, that is a banana wing.

  7. Keith, you swapped all names in the Lotus photos: Trulli is driver no.2, Kovalainen is no.1.

    1. You know, I think that Trulli is driver 1. I remember watching the coverage, and as they cycled through the teams, Jarno came before Heikki. I knew that Heikki was better than Jarno last year, but perhaps it is superstition?

  8. LOL… a lot of HRT photos, eh Keith? better to take some pics while they are still here hehehe :P

  9. Sebs name kinky kylie how weird. Go Lewis Hamilton woooooooooooooooo. Win win win I work at mclaren so haha

    1. kylie minogue maybe.

      1. The TV played with that. They first showed Vettel leaving the pits and then showed Kylie Minogue in the paddock. I had a laugh.

  10. Gotta say, I like the Pirelli colours but it is a bit hard to distinguish them with onboard cameras. Brundle had a tough time at it yesterday.

    1. Personally, I could fairly clearly distinguish between them.

    Just been watching the qualifying replay on the red button. Webbers wing does not flex anywhere near as much as Vettels.

    1. go ahead and show me!

  12. Plenty of HRT pictures, but then when the target object isn’t moving it’s easier to snap i suppose….

  13. Only 1 Hamilton picture? And its in the pits… :(
