  1. that picture with Buemi is superb!

    1. Shame he didn’t repeat his practise performance, he was looking good.

  2. Phew…I thought Vettel forgot to whip the finger out! A rather more subdued approach than usual…unlike his lap.

  3. On the front of Ferrari’s helmets there is Ferrari’s logo. But has anyone noticed that Alonso’s has the correct logo, with the two red rectangles near “Scuderia Ferrari”, whilst Massa’s hasn’t?

    1. Oh yeah, god that took some finding. Not sure why though.

  4. The Paddock Club is full. However, look how few people are there in the grandstands.
    Is it no more than 25% seats occupied for qualifying and supporting races?

  5. Nico needs a shave! I know people sometimes compare him to Leonardo di Caprio, but here he just looks like a Heidfeld-in-the-making.

    1. I think it suits him, I reckon he’s growing it so the Britney nickname might go away.

      1. I think so too.

    2. they all need shaves! maybe they are trying to get sponsor from Gillette


    Is Heikki trying to get a modelling contract? And is Narain drunk?
