    Shocking.

  2. Eggry (@eggry) said on 7th September 2013, 14:05

    That’s it.

    Ha! I would hope I’m not the only one who is incredibly satisfied that Alonso’s and Ferrari’s contrived attempt at giving him an advantage flopped badly.

  4. Shreyas Mohanty (@) said on 7th September 2013, 14:06

    Massa : Screwing Ferrari since eternity :|

  5. Brilliant irony as Keith said with Ferrari – well that went badly.

    Fantastic result for Red Bull and particularly Nico H├╝lkenberg – Ferrari, are you watching?

    Well done to Ricciardo yet again and horrible result for Hamilton and R├Ąikk├Ânen.

    What an eventful qualifying!

  6. JackySteeg (@jackysteeg) said on 7th September 2013, 14:06

    Poor Vergne. I suppose because he finished that lap and it was the only one he did in Q3, he’s going to have to start on those tyres he dragged through the gravel.

    • Patrick (@paeschli) said on 7th September 2013, 14:17

      I didn’t thought of that :s
      It’s gonna be tough race for him, especiallu with Kimi and Lewis behind him!

    • TMF (@tmf42) said on 7th September 2013, 14:29

      I think he can get them replaced if they are damaged.

      • @tmf42 I assume only if they’re deemed to be damaged to the extent of being unsafe, but you are correct.

        At the start of the race each car which took part in Q3 must be fitted with the tyres with which the driver set his grid time. This will only be necessary if dry-weather tyres were used to set the grid time and if dry-weather are used at the start of the race.
        Any such tyres damaged during Q3 will be inspected by the FIA technical delegate who will decide, at his absolute discretion, whether any may be replaced and, if so, which tyres they should be replaced with.
        A penalty under Article 16.3(b) will be imposed on any driver whose car is not fitted with the tyres with which he set his grid time (except if damaged tyres have been replaced with the approval of the FIA technical delegate).

    Hulkenberg should get the Ferrari seat ahead of Raikkonen.

  8. toiago (@toiago) said on 7th September 2013, 14:07

    Incredible effort from Hulkenberg!

  9. Fer no.65 (@fer-no65) said on 7th September 2013, 14:08

    Won’t somebody please give a better drive to the Hulk??

  10. Diego (@ironcito) said on 7th September 2013, 14:08

    With Massa, a Sauber and Webber ahead of him, Alonso may well be 2nd after the start.

    • Hamilfan (@hamilfan) said on 7th September 2013, 14:42

      Unfortunately Vettel would have gone for a holiday to the mountains by then :( . Red Bull seem to be shattering rivals to bits.Unless something dramatic happens , Tomorrow is Vettel’s race to lose.

  11. iAltair (@ialtair) said on 7th September 2013, 14:09

    I don’t quite understand why Ferrari depend on Massa to give advantage to Alonso.

  12. mourya (@ayrtons6094) said on 7th September 2013, 14:09

    Rather boring and disappointing quali..happy for hulk though.

  13. Timothy Katz (@timothykatz) said on 7th September 2013, 14:10

    What do we think about Sutil – 5 place penalty?

  14. Mayank (@mjf1fan) said on 7th September 2013, 14:11

    Massa you did it perfectly. I loved when Alonso said on radio- Felipe is too far ahead.

    On a serious note great great drive from Hulk. He deserves a top seat..either Lotus or Ferrari. And as usual Seb was just amazing.

  15. David Margono (@woshidavid95) said on 7th September 2013, 14:13

    Both Lotuses eliminated in Q2 along with Hamilton amd Hulkenberg in 3rd place for Sauber? I did not see that coming. Somebody please give Hulkenberg a seat at a decent team, preferably Lotus or Ferrari, he’s the most deserving candidate and definitely more capable than Ricciardo who got a Red Bull seat mostly due to Toro Rosso’s connections with Red Bull. I just hope he doesn’t end up like Bottas did at Montreal.

    • Patrick (@paeschli) said on 7th September 2013, 14:20

      +1 It would be great to see him on the podium tomorrow :D

      • David Margono (@woshidavid95) said on 7th September 2013, 14:27

        He would already be on the podium at Interlagos last year if he didn’t punt Hamilton out of the race… I felt that his drive-through penalty was quite unfair as it was because of the rain but anyways, tomorrow is his best chance of getting a podium since Interlagos last year, fingers crossed that he doesn’t go backwards like Bottas did at Montreal. He’s driving a lot like Kubica did for Renault in 2010, pushing the car up to positions it has no business being in.

  16. liam (@) said on 7th September 2013, 14:13

    FF Forza Ferrari? more like Ferrari Farce. Hamilton was a shambles s was Kimi. It’s over. Also I loved how Jean-Eric Vergne tried to have the yellow flags deployed, by yanking his steering wheel to the left onto the gravel, that was no accident.

  17. AlokIn (@) said on 7th September 2013, 14:15

    Incredible hulk !! deserves better car.
    Sutil mixing professional and personal life. don’t deserve to be in F1.
    Already penalised in Canada for the same mistake.

  18. Libellula (@ladyf1fanatic) said on 7th September 2013, 14:16

    @keithcollantine: please can you tell us what happened to Kimi and Lewis? I’m sat here at Ascari Tribune… Almost all the 20 people I’ve been with all the week-end…we’re just gutted! We thiught Ferrari could have been on pole! Twitter is full of angry comments and insults to Sutil… Really annoying Saturday! why that man was allowed to come back in F1?

    • @lafyf1fanatic put simply, Lotus weren’t quick enough and Hamilton screwed himself over by running wide at the exit of parabolica. Ferrari screwed themselves over partially (although I don’t think they were quick enough for pole) by failing to properly execute the towing strategy and Sutil was just really clumsy (I hope; I would hate if that were intentional).

    • Alonso did as well as could be expected, really. He’s effectively starting on the second row (will Massa have his gearbox seal broken again?) and second row is an outstanding start position for him, all things considered.

      Hamilton has been struggling for the last couple of days. His off-road excursion in Q3 was only the latest mishap – he went off in the same place in practice and has missed chicanes/braking points several times.

    • yoyoyo said on 7th September 2013, 16:34

      I read that sutil slowed Hamilton at the parabolica, but Hamilton was already slow at the first sector 28.8… 1.5 slower then vettel at first sector. maybe it was the lap before, but I thought that was hamiltons warm up lap…

  19. evered7 (@evered7) said on 7th September 2013, 14:22

    Best possible result for Ferrari. Alonso can take over 4th or 3rd (courtesy Webber) at the start and hopefully chase the Red Bulls.
    Best for also scoring a little more WCC points as Merc and Lotus are not in the best of their shapes in this race.

  20. Stunning lap by Vettel. Never saw it coming.
