    Pictures of cars pulling into the pit lane always look great here. The main straight spectator stand is enormous!

    Totally biased choice of pictures, 5 photos of Hamilton and just one of Karthikeyan.

      @girts There’s none of Marussia at all! :P

        @keeleyobsessed What a huge scandal! I didn’t notice that as I was too busy trying to find some nice images of my current* favourite Narain.

        * I added NK to the list of my favourite drivers after his incident with Vettel at Sepang. I think I’ll have to remove him again this Sunday.

        Apart from the fact that there is. Sure.

      Love how you point out that there’s 5 Hamilton photos, yet you fail to note how there’s in fact 8 photos of Scumacher.

      • Quality of the comments at this site are now just complaining 14yr olds with internet connections. Where did the F1 fans go?

          Yeah exactly my point. Why that guy is complaining about the amount of Hamilton photos I dont know. Love the way people always jump to the ‘British Bias’ thing everytime Hamilton is mentioned.

      5 photos of Hamilton…

      Try reading the comments from the last two GP. It’s full of people saying how there are no McLaren photos!

        Ah, perhaps I missed the sarcasm :) … or did I?

        @john-h , Steve, Don

        Sorry guys, that was just a humble attempt at being ironic. I’m a big fan of this site and I know that people sometimes accuse @KeithCollantine of not being objective enough. I personally haven’t found a website that’s more impartial than F1F so this was just a parody.

        Besides, comparing me with 14-year old teens is a serious insult. To the 14-year old teens.

        • John H (@john-h) said on 14th April 2012, 15:10

          @girts you are a disgrace! Keith is clearly biased against HRT ;)

          Should have realised – I guess the potential for such comments to be irony-free is perhaps lower than it used to be. I know you’re a long time fanatic of course.

    So Sauber lost Claro’s big logo on the engine cover, but what is ‘out of the blue’?
