Why not join the live forum, and the results of Q can be discussed in RC afterwards? It will anyway, but...

Old live threads were better IMO. You cannot keep track with the live chat.

It just takes a bit of time to get used to it. Though I preferred the old threads, Nige and Hack continue to do a brilliant job, when the Live Forum actually starts ;) (This weekend's qually is 30 mins late!)

The car has 8 engines for the season they can use them as and when they like from FP3 onwards as long as that engine continues to be used for the rest of that weekend.

He has a 10 place penalty. He can get the fastest time but Pole is impossible.

Won't that be pre-recorded as I would imagine the teams would be to busy to be interviewed?

Ok, now it's getting unrealistic. :rolleyes:

I think Vettel will set the fastest time, Webber will crack at the crucial moment.

the weather is playing games this weekend heavy drops falling but not "real" rain. pressure is certainly falling but the temperature is holding. Thunder? who knows If rain does come it it'll be around turns 10-13 looking at the current wind direction.

I think we may have to euthenise this one. It looks like a joke, but we just can't be too careful. It may be spread to someone without a sense of sarcasm. :p
