Massa again, in no place to help Alonso. I honestly can't see why he is still considered to keep his drive next year?

The sad thing for Hamilton is that mclaren's race pace is always so relative to their quali pace

Schumi outqualifies Rosberg AGAIN.

It's Merccedes you need to leave Michael, not Formula 1.

Vettel should get this, surely.

I think we're in for another Seb special in the next 10 minutes. A 0.7 gap to P2 wouldnt surprise me.

Hmm... Vettel will take pole position but not by a mile unlike some are predicting. It's closer than we think.

I think Vettel could still go lower possibly in the 1min 31.1-31.2s region.

Unless there was a problem with his car, that was the worst qualifying performance from Hamilton I've ever seen.

Well seeing as McLaren are probably the most professional team in motorsport, I highly doubt that they would 'sabotage' one of their driver's cars, regardless of where that driver is going next year.
