    Epic lap from Ham! Now, finish the job tomorrow and make a charge for the WDC. Good to see my two favs on the front row. :)

    I’ll say this: Lotus for the win.

    Massive risk for Ferrari. It could either lead to a massive success or a fail. The fact that they had pace for P4 makes this decision even stranger.

    Strange to see both ferraris opting to set the Q3 lap time on mediums.. Hope it turns out to be a great decision….

    What on earth were Ferrari upto?
    As far as I remember Ferrari had topped q2 and q3.
    And then going onto mediums in q3.
    BIZZAREEEEE!!!

    It was enjoyable qualifying. Good to see Hamilton is back but I doubt Ferrari’s strategy would work. Work or not, I don’t think one of Ferraris would win. Podium would be maximum.

    Danny Ricciardo impressive once again. Interested to see how the strategy pans out with the Ferraris on primes. And of course Rosberg out of position. Should be a good race!

  9. Jake (@jleigh) said on 6th July 2013, 14:16

    Lets just hope Mark can actually start from 3rd rather than the lower reaches of the midfield as usual.

  10. Roald (@roald) said on 6th July 2013, 14:18

    Ricciardo really wants that promotion, doesn’t he?

    Sucks for Rosberg, what if Hamilton would win the title? Rosberg would probably feel terribly mistreated by his team…

    Vettel for the win

  12. SeaHorse (@seahorse) said on 6th July 2013, 14:21

    Forza Ferrari! ;)

  13. Aimal (@aimalkhan) said on 6th July 2013, 14:24

    I had Hamilton for pole but changed to vettel after FP3 this morning. darn it… :(

    Dam was so close to guessing Lewis’s time.
    1:29.648

    Good strategy by ferrari. But if temperatures remain as hot as they are today, graining will be minimum.

    • Mads (@mads) said on 6th July 2013, 16:34

      @sandy
      They still have to use the softs anyway.
      So they will have to rely on the front runners getting out in traffic after their first stop in order to make up the loss of track position. And then they just have to pray to god that they aren’t going to get eaten by a truckload of cars on mediums towards the end when they are fighting a set of graining soft tyres.

      • Alonshow said on 6th July 2013, 17:14

        The front runners will absolutely get caught in traffic after their first pit stop. There’s no way they can make the gap to cover a pit stop before the softs die. The question is how quickly they will manage to clear that traffic (if they do). And there shouldn’t be any problem for the Ferraris with the softs at the end. By then they will know exactly how long they last.
