Miss Singapore looks too much like a China doll, no pun intended.

What is the point of having Senna in that car? They give him both practice sessions, then he goes and falls off. I hope Williams' profits go to the mechanics salaries, they deserve it.

He looks out of his depth to be honest; he is both slow and accident prone. Karthikeyan has a less expensive repair bill.

Last year's best P2 time was 1:46.374. Today's times are way off pace. Hamilton's best effort is 1:50.074. Wonder how much time supersofts will bring.

Again? Where were the last time they were 1-2



Valencia I believe.


Nice, so both retiring and Alonso winning :rotfl:

Seriously, Alonso will be right there, as always, and he is probably the best at this track, so don´t write him off this fast.

I definitely haven't written him off, he could easily be in the fight for pole. All I'm saying is that a fight between Vettel and Hamilton for pole is hardly outlandish enough to be called a "troll attempt" from what we've seen so far.

It's impressive how Hulkenberg and Di Resta are pretty much always on the same tenth, for me Force India have the best driver pairing of the grid.

Nahh i doubt Red Bull will be competitive sunday, their car isnt reliable and their ability to setup a car to be both fast in qualy and race this year has been really poor.

In this heat in Singapor their alternator could likely fail once more.

Disagree. Not to mention Singapore is a track where they excel traditionally, Red Bull's main problem this year has been qualifying. If they sort it out, they will be very competitive in races. Apart from Spa and Monza, I don't recall any race where Red Bull was particularly slow.

I agree here. Vettel on pole and he will run away with it except a car failure

Red Bull has the best traction out of any car, as has been the case the past few years. In the race they'll be very competitive.

Lotus and McLaren's long run are similar and seemingly fastest from Red Bull from Ferrari from Force India.

:lol:

Have you looked at the pace? Hamilton best, with Alonso near, and Vettel struggling a bit. That´s how I see it, and for me those are the three contenders to this race, not just two.
