  1. Kobayashi o-0

  2. How awesome is to see Kamui back in the paddock, and in Ferrari colours! I miss his style, he didn’t deserved to be dropped.

  3. Eh, Kamui in Ferrari regalia? Did I miss something?

    1. He drives for AF Corse in the WEC so likely it’s just a “hey why don’t you come be one of our VIP guests this weekend” type of things. Oooor (dramatic pause) he could be Massa’s replacement come 2014……..

      1. yeah, it was good to hear when he picked up that drive, really good to know he landed on his feat in a race car. was sad to hear when he almost had to leave racing all together before he got an f1 drive, then to lose the seat at the end of last year, really disappointing for such a good driver. so much better than at least 6 of the drivers in the grid right now.

      i wondered what i had missed too!

  4. The RBR showcar looks horribly disproportional with the nose – why do they feel the need to update the appearance of it?!

    1. Because it’s on public display, which means anyone can take a look at it – including other teams. Why give them a free kick by putting all of their latest parts on the show car?

      The RBR showcar looks horribly disproportional with the nose – why do they feel the need to update the appearance of it?!

      Max, is it really just a show car or is it an updated version for the race car? If it´s the latter, you shouldn´t worry about how it looks, just hope it´ll make the tyres work for them…

      1. No, it’s the show car. It is on display by their swimming pool in the paddock.

    3. @vettel1 I think we concluded on this site before that it’s an updated version of 2006’s Torro Rosso. There’s a V10 in the back of the showcar anyway.

      1. @roald thanks for that.

        @prisoner-monkeys it’s because they look as if they’ve tried to replicate the RB9’s nose as appose to having its “natural” one!

  5. Is it just me who finds it so strange to see Ogier, rather than Loeb, sitting in that Red Bull now?

  6. Looks like Lewis and Nico are having a good time on those personal watercraft. No tire issues!
