    reagrding hamilton’s damaged floor, it was reported on the McLaren website that Lewis had something stuck in his front wing a few laps earlier. Could it be that this fell off the front wing and went back and broke the strut holding up the tray?

    Oh dear, Karthikayen isn’t even looking at the camera….!

    • I don’t think I’ve ever seen a single driver’s lineup photo like that without at least one of them looking at something other than the camera.

    Come on guys, as always there are no pics of McLaren. What the hell’s wrong with you all? Does it burn? Does it hurt?

    The phallic connotations of the champagne ceremony never occurred to me until I saw that picture of Vettel.

    I like the lone Rubens with the tyre marks from a spin on the asphalt. Nice feeling.

    Keith,

    any more information on the tech failures on both of the Williams?

    I heard they were gearbox/driveshaft failures. If so they will be worried….

    Thanks
    Andy

    Man, the 2011 field looks soooooo bland!! Colour wise that is.
    It really lacks the yellow Renault wasps from last year.

  14. has anyone seen pictures of the damage on heidfelds car. looked quite bad

    I think Renault & Sauber could cause alot of upsets. Given that Sauber can fix their specification problem with the rear wing.

    Which brings me to ask, ” How did Mclaren get away with being within specification if the floor tray is missing bits and pieces ? “

      very good point. unless there is a rule if soemthing is affected by damage maybe?

        What DC said on the BBC coverage about Schumacher failing with “it got damaged due to going over cerbs” forgot to take into account that the stewards rejected that argument mainly because they disagreed the wear they saw was too even to be explained that way instead of by a too low ride height. I would think that in this case, even if part of the plank was too thin, there were clear signs of it having been damaged.
