Well... According to Jonathan Nobles little article this morning they should get a penalty, all of the drivers, that put all of their 4 wheels outside the track limit on turn 21. And they were supposed to only look at turn 21 and the chicanes as that's where it's deemed that the driver "gains an advantage"... but not a sound about this... so rules are not rules these days eh Charlie??

To start with one or two drivers went a bit over the white lines.  Nothing happened.  So more drivers went a bit further over.  Nothing happened.  Result: none of them could afford to hand that advantage to the others, so they all went for it.

 

100% predictable.

I have to admit I am a fortune-teller... I am pretty sure there is not a single human-being in the world who bet any other team than Red Bull. 

Then your fortune telling isn't much to brag about, is it?

Man, please watch the post qualy interviews. Seb said they thought Mercedes were extremely strong, but in Q3 they realized they still had something extra in the bag.

Which he would've realized after his first run in Q3 already, when he was on provisional pole.

Stewarts decisions:

 

kimi excluded from QP: http://184.106.145.7...ntNumber-31.pdf

 

Perez speeding under yellow flag conditions - no further action: http://184.106.145.7...ntNumber-27.pdf

 

Gear box change on Bianchis car - drop of 5 grid positions: http://184.106.145.7...ntNumber-25.pdf

I wouldn't be surprised to read that no fault was found on Lewis' car.

this deserves to come back I think

No, it was a reply to a post. It involved load of sarcasm.

I am surprised that GutiƩrrez was not penalised for ruining Charles Pic's qualy lap.

Kimi dq'd for the floor, not running foul of the lines... so fair play to stewards, for applying rules (not!) equally!

And Lewis' problem was a broken wishbone in the Mercedes.

Well done to Webber- in a way its alright he beat Seb a 2nd time and this time on merit, as it would've been a pity for only 1 KERS failure to deny Seb the clean sweep. Didn't expect Seb's 1:40.0 to go so fair play but a pity Seb made a rare error on a hotlap- save the perfect laps for the ones that really matter I suppose!

Is that confirmed by the team?

Webbers KERS regularly breaks in qualifying. They don't consider that a 'shallow pole' or 'not a true pole' for Seb.

Yes, confirmed by the team.

 

@MercedesAMGF1 - We can now confirm that a right-rear wishbone failed on Lewis' car. We hope to repair the damage under parc ferme.

As long as Webbo/ Vettel/ Raikkonen/ Grosjean/ Massa wins the race... i'm going to be a happy man :)

Raikkonen will start from 22nd or pitlane, so I am ruling out a victory for him.

 

Grosjean and Massa will probably get stucked behind Hulkenberg. The Sauber has excellent traction and top speed and would be tough to pass on the back straights.

 

That would leave Webber and Vettel as the obvious choices. Toss a coin and you will get the winner.  :D

I get the odds... i'm just stating that this... would be nice! Hulk winning it will be mega! Let us see what comes :)

 

note: i got pop and some junk food to go along... i'm prepared. :D
