    HA HA HA SO VETEL, THE EXTREMLY GOOD DRIVER, DRIVING A NORMAL CAR ENDS 12…. fantastic, now everyone can understand better his winings.

      I suppose you also judged Alonso’s whole season in 2012 on the basis of him crashing in qualifying in Australia?

        @vettel1 For them it’s concluded. Season is over as far as the battle of the Bulls is concerned. Truly amazing how they jump to conclusions where Vettel is involved.

        Ridiculous comparason.
        1. VET, even though he does often in stressful situations, did not crash in 2014
        2. VET, had a package with pace fully capable of front row, as proven by his less experienced team mate’s time/position. Significantly better than the Ferrari of 2012 which was 1.5s behind pole sitter and quite a handful (refer to onboards footage to see his fights with it)
        3. ALO in 2012, although was out already at Q2 due to the below par quality of the package , was still ahead of his very experienced team mate at the final grid.

    10th 11th and 12th place were all good enough to get into the top 5 in final quali we are going too see a few cars coming up through the field tomorrow all 1.44mins

    Hooray for F1 after Vettel starts in 12th! That could be a news headline. :P

    Vettel is going to be the next Jenson Button. When he has to compete with a regular car he disappears.

    How about Max Chilton, not bad. Maybe if he keeps it on the road he can pull in a few more spots.

    Great qualifying session. With the field so mixed. We have HAM, RIC, ROS, MAG, HUL, ALO on front with VET, BUT, MAS, BOT, PER, RAI chasing them. The results can be very very unpredictable. It the race pans out as brilliant as I assume it should, we will forget all the rule changes, and things we were talking about in preseason and get back in the fanaticism of F1. Bring it on guys for a great race.

    I’m just excited to see a mixed bag at the start of a new season, isn’t this what we all wanted? Mechanical failures, software issues or driver errors are all part of racing. It can happen to anyone, but the situation we have right now will surely create a exciting race! Can’t argue with that now can we?
