    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.

    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.

    @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.

      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…

    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.

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

    Fernando’s comment over team radio was ridiculous

    brilliant. Ferrari strategy backfired and am so glad massa is ahead.
    absolute perfect drive by Sebastien and Nico. Ferrari should hire him and Kimi and be done with it.

    this whole sutil vs Hamilton thing is getting retarded.

    If you didn’t mean it, don’t say it in the first place. Plenty of vile statements have been followed with “it was a joke”.

  9. mihakase said on 7th September 2013, 14:38

    Alonso himself said Massa had slowed down so that he could gain approx 0.15s from slipstreaming.

    Not only did Massa *not* screw Alonso / Ferrari, he may have actually had the pace to place better in qualifying. Baffling that commenters are blaming him, frankly.

    At the start of the year, after a few races, I thought to myself, if Mercedes is going to win at any track, it would be monza, and maybe spa. now they are 6th and 12th. the last race at spa the pole was a bit lucky because of the rain, and it seems like redbull have stepped up after the summer break, while as usual, Mercedes will fade as the year goes on. McLaren are starting to up their game now I feel, like they did in the bad 2009 season when they improved greatly towards the end of the year.

  11. All eyes on Row 7 at the start?
