Brilliant qualifying. Lewis looked so happy when he got out of the car.

Get in.

Is this the first front row lock out since Australia? First and last grand prix of the season, quite fitting.

nope. not only the speed is important, but also reliability and team as managment. and these 2 last things were lacking in this season (managment in 1st half, reliability in 2nd)

No, they locked the front row in Italy and Malasya.

But those 2 points should be no challenge to a team like McLaren. Imho they threw away the titles.

Great job Lewis and Jenson. They extracted %100 from the car. I really hope we will finish 1-2 tomorrow. It will be great to end this disappointing season with a bit grin on our face. We had great car this year ( speed wise) but we could not capitalize on the true pace of the car but hey it would be great to finish it on a high! Come on guys!

The fastest car.
The prettiest car.

Every team except McLaren put on more wing compared to FP's judging by top speed.
Will be interesting in the rain.

Fair enough, then since there's no DRS on race day, why don't you make the gears shorter?


The car is bouncing on the limiter for 200-300 meters before the qual lap starts. With an even shorter gearing, the would have been slower on S3 in qual and maybe wouldn't have gotten pole.

It's a compromise.

Fortunatelly this won't be seen next year as DRS will be forbiden in qualifying.

Is it difficult to understand that the increase/decrease on top speed is due to different gearing and not to running a click more wing?

This car is insanely fast. Only makes one wonder what could have been. Very possible for McLaren to rip 2nd in the WCC from Ferrari this weekend.

Lets pray for a dry race. In a wet race I think Ferrari will be stronger.

PS: Is it updated FW that the team brought to Austin? Flaps looked like different to me :confused:

Well I'd rather see a wet race & hope Ferrari is stronger, but I think wet or dry the McLaren is the fastest car on the grid. I don't see the rain making much of a difference in terms of outright pace of the MP4-27.

I wonder if they may have put a touch more downforce on late on - earlier in practice they were making 2-2.5 tenths on red bull in the third sector but in quali it was barely half a tenth on webber v Hamilton and there's not a whole lot to do I that section either!

Yeah I feel a little sorry for the actual car, unfortunate that she had a slightly stale team behind her. The reliability issues were unluckily timed rather than bad IMHO

I will remember this year as one of the biggest failures in McLaren's F1 history. To win absolutely zilch with the fastest car from the word go is quite astonishing. But it can only get better and I hope that some more relaxed environment with Button and Perez will be the basis for a much more successful 2013.

An unforseen glitch, which resulted in Lewis choosing NO when asked if he'd like to continue. I actually enjoyed that Tooned episode. It was very well done.

Yeah, it had some nice tone to it. My question should be more retorical/funny than to be taken seriously. But I have to say, I would have chosen an other driver. Well after seeing the car today which was also good in dry and wet (!!!), here's hoping for a strong MP4-28.

Its hard to criticise someone for getting the Brazil weather lottery wrong and it was working quite nicely until the rain slowed down a bit a few laps later.

It was the same strategy as the rest of the top 10 except for JB and Hulkenberg. Unfortunately it stopped raining the very next lap. He still ran in third despite the two additional stops.
