    Can't wait for Vettel to do his usual, now that he's tasted a non-finish he's clearly going to go mental for the remainder of the season.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Just seen one of the commentators down at turn 4. I always thought corners and the rumble strips were smooth like my head......seems like they're not and are staggered in height going with the flow........cant see that lasting long IF all tracks are like it.

    I think most of them have a "saw tooth" type design & have done for years.

    I remember a 10 or so years back at one of the newer circuits (can't remember which) the kerbs were so high that when drivers (including David Coultard) cut a corner during practice, the teeth ripped through the floor of the cars. They had to cut the kerbs down overnight before Saturday qualifying.

    Shame missed a chance to see fingers vs Hamilton. Would have been great to see the battle. Those tyres are dangerous! The amount of debris spraying the cars behind is just shocking. Regardless of if it was kerbs doing the damage, those kerbs are older than the tyres.

    what a drive from Webber and Hamilton though. Great results considering the hands they were dealt.

    i wonder what was up with Alonso at the end, in the room he looked properly knackered and took the stairs very slowly. Looked like he had a hard time in the car?

    I remember Nigel Mansell being the same after nearly every race,people do not realise the level of fitness needed to be a racing driver,you pull so many G's taking corners at speed and also the level of concentration takes its toll.

    Pirelli are having a meeting on Wednesday but others want it sooner

    Doesn't he have two girlfriends? I've heard they're both a bit hard on him in bed.

    Good drive by Alonso and it was nice to see Lewis on an overtaking frenzy!!

    Do you think Ferrari will let Massa go this year?
    Imo its only worth it if you going to put someone like Kimi in there, and have 2 good drivers going for a win, if they going to put just another puppet in there to help Alonso, then there’s no point.

    Notice how everyone has basically lost interest when the Redbulls and Vettel walks the last few races, and barring any retirements, he's got the title in the bag already!

    It's Michael Schumacher all over again! Lol

    Tbh JoJo, for me its still the tyres that have made me lose interest in F1 this year.

    Look at the British GP, what made for a good and interesting race with Lewis on pole, 4/5 blowouts later makes its more a lottery than a race, and all season long you hear drivers over the radio “am I racing him or do I let him overtake” just because they know they will blister the tyres.

    I don’t think Vettel has anywhere near the ability of Schumacher, take him out of the RedBull and I think we will see him somewhere midfield at best.

    Imho Schumacher was a driver that not only won races he should have won, he won races that that he shouldn’t have won, (by hook or by crook) and that makes for a winner.

    Of course Schumi is still the boss! Vettel has not been proven against Alonso/Kimi/Lewis, and until he does, it's all about the car! He still has to bring it home though, and he's pretty much destroyed Mark Webber, so are we calling Mark slow?

    Id say Vettel is good at getting the best out of the car in qualifying, better than Webber.
    Then the Redbull is hard to catch never mind over take.

    if you look this year, Seb has won from pole or 2nd, but when qualifying down the grid, he’s only moved up a place or two, and not done aswell as Webber in the race.

    Really don’t understand why Mercedes didn’t bring Lewis into pit before Nico?
    Nico’s race was over when his nose fell off, but I think lewis may have still made the podium, rare mistake by Mercedes.
