Excellent Rosberg vs Schumi quali lap comparison on Sky. No wonder Rosberg blitzed everyone, his lines and corner cutting were perfect.

Webber is upbeat. Not surprising for a number one driver.

Argh, switching channels for some Brundle pitwalk!

[edit] Aww, I think he's run for the box already.

[edit] lol, perfect Kimi.

"Kimi you have such a huge fanbase here, isn't it great?"

"Well it's always nice mumble mumble" <walks away>

Raikkonen, Button, Hamilton, Perez and Kobayashi. Those are the guys I think can win it.

The Mercs will drop back, RBR sucks with straight line speed and I don't see Alonso getting close enough.

also, schumi's front tyres looked a bit grained. perhaps they havent solved their tyre issues, but this cool weather should at least help them out.

They are struggling with straight line speed, both of the RBR needs to take a chance with a different strategy.

Funny, when Webber went in for harder tyres my spidey senses said it was good. He performs on harder compounds. Now dropping purples. Traffic is his big concern now but he can generally handle that.

Well Vettel just posted the first 1:42. Actually, the ONLY 1:42.

Mad scrap there with Hamilton and Kimi exiting the pits and slotting in with Webber. Did you guys see it or was there an ad break?

Loose wheel maybe, anyone else notice the mechanic slapping the ground as msc pulled out of the pits

Yea, seems to be that. Can't be the tyres, he just pitted. Must be something that he felt it wasn't safe to continue and a loose wheel fits.
Shit, they were looking good too, what a shame.

Yep there it is, mechanic was switching guns to tighten the nut but the auto system released Schumi. Damn, a case of technology ruining things.

Yea, he pitted.

Mercs will probably get punished for an unsafe release too, ouch. The FIA likes to put salt on a wound. Fair call, but ouch.

Probably too late this race, but note it for later. A few squid for a day is feeling mighty worth it right now - and I can switch between Beeb/Sky at will.

40quid/year, 3 (or 4?) for a day.

I'll probably just do it Sundays and spend more >.< But I'm not home every Sunday so a year subscription feels silly. And it's not so critical on Fri/Sat IMO.

Yea, hard to say really. There's a few potential 2 stops floating about, Perez and Rosberg being the main ones.
