  1. I’m going for Vettel, Button, Hamilton and Webber as the top 4 for tomorrow. Mostly because Hamilton and Webber have owned P3 and P4 so far this season lol.

    Does anyone else think that Kimi is going to have a rough ride at Lotus? It seems that Renault is doing it again. They did it with Alonso and Truli, now they are doing it with Kimi and Romain. This time it is Gerard Lopez and Eric Boullier who are doing Kimi, last time it was Briatore who did Jarno. Deja vu. Can anyone explain why Kimi was late for the second run in Q1 in Australia? It is not the driver who decies when he goes out in qualifications. Ok, the gearbox in Malaysia was just bad luck I guess, otherwise team Lotus would have invented something. In China they saw Kimi was stuck behind Massa and yet they kept him there until the guys who had three stops caught up with them, so that there was no more sense to change tyres, as he would have dropped from P2 to P9 perhaps. He was left on one set of tires for 29 laps, the whole race is 56 laps. Romain did 22 laps on one set he did not have fast cars behind. Now he was prevented, TEAM DECISION, from second run in Q2. Why? So that he can save tyres that he will never use in the race because Team Lotus wants him to have less stops than the other teams. Romain used 3 sets of softs and Kimi used only one. I say: TEAM LOTUS ARE EITHER DUMMIES OR THEY ARE DOING THIS ON PURPOSE! Cast your vote!
