    Nice to see the Chinese fans supporting what is probably their ‘home’ driver (as far as geographical borders go) in the shape of Vitaly Petrov. My Russian isn’t great, I wonder what the banner says?

    Don’t tell me there are NO pictures of Mark Webber’s wheelie? If there is, I’d happily wait. *waitingwaitingwaiting*

    Watching webbers wheelie- I really thought “oh no!! He’s going to do it again!!”. Remembering valencia and his days with mercedes tin tops!!

    Kieth – Was it only the diffuser that kept him grounded??

      Webber said he lifted the throttle, which would have decreased the speed of the rear wheels and prevented the momentum from flipping the car.
