Hamilton is setting pretty good times. We won't know how good they are until BMW and Ferrari come out. Kova is consistently slower than Lewis.

Ahh.

Thanks for that; I had missed something. :o

At the expense of sounding even dumber than I have already, does anyone know how you add comments to the live stream? Not that I have much to add but I always enjoy the interactive banter with other fans.

It was really weird the way he lost the back of the car there, quite innocuous really just seemed to throw the car in and the back had no downforce at all.

Massa is reminding me of... Massa. The young Massa that mixed blinding speed and gravel traps in equal amounts. Kimi getting into his head?

As long as he does it in practice it's ok. You never know if Kimi will spin out tmr.

Looking good for Renault, so far. Especially as Piquet looks so consistent, that bodes well for their updates.

Well, Ferrari seems to be superior - even more so than on the previous GPs. McLaren and BMW could have an exciting fight to be the 2nd best team. Renault are maybe back on 4th place where they were last year, but then teams like Toyota and Williams have not shown everything yet, I beleive. Still early day, of course, but Ferrari looks dominant.

Kova seems to be off the pace. Otherwise McLaren are a bit faster than BMWs.

Well, Kova did only 10 laps, so I don't know if he had a problem...?

The two Ferraris are the only cars to set a sub-22.0s time in S1 while Kimi is the only driver to set a sub-28.0s time in S3...

Renault seems to have improved a bit and it might even be the best car next to the top 3 teams. But we have to see it in the Quali and the race. But good for them...

Interestingly Sutil is 0.04s faster than his teammate Fisichella...

Interesting to see how the weekend will develop. Encouraging to see that Hamilton seems back on form, clearly Ferrari look very fast though they did set their fliers a bit later than Lewis' run that was in itself on a fair amount of fuel. The gap may well close somewhat (hopefully :))

I know but I cannot post from there, also if many join during the race the comments will be streaming so fast that you cannot read any of them. :
