Friday

Lewis Hamilton topped both practice sessions for Mercedes, raising hopes that Red Bull might face some effective opposition.

Saturday

Sebastian Vettel took control of proceedings, topping final practice before seizing pole position for Sunday’s race. Romain Grosjean out-qualified Kimi Raikkonen again but both McLarens failed to make it into Q3.

    Romain’s not had much luck all weekend at demanding to be let through. He should get some lessons from Alonso…

    Love the Sauber bike. Looks like it has amazing traction.

    Nice to see (most of) the drivers together in the GPDA photo! In normal clothes too, they actually look like people and not corporate robots/walking adverts. World Champions or backmarkers, they’re all racing drivers at the end of the day and have a lot in common. It’s nice to see a sense of camaraderie between all the drivers when you usually get the sense that most of them wouldn’t give each other the time of day

    @keithcollantine Any idea what Force India referred to with this tweet?

    @MyCaterhamF1 you really do go to the extremes when it comes to coded messages…

    Seeing Hamilton playing around with Google Glass, it’s hard not to wonder how long it is before we see drivers using such technology to overlay vital information through their helmet visors. It can’t be too difficult even with current hardware to create a visor that offers the drivers a view similar to ones viewers see whenever the TV director switches to infrared cam.

    Lovely pic by Alonso with Webber watching his car.

    Also, it’s impressive how much trouble the team has informing Hamilton ! every race there’s a comment like that…
