Interesting statistic - Hamilton has never won three consecutive races. So finally it is his golden chance to make this happen and create a string of wins. Never had a car as good/fast as he has currently got.

 

You probably jinx it.  :lol:

I've been watching since 2007 and I don't think I've ever seen a car have problems due to sitting on the grid for too long - but that long wait Hamilton has when he starts on pole makes me sweat every time. Feels like an age until the last cars reach the grid!

Very surprising.

 

Means Lewis not only needs to stay first through the first corner, but make sure they last at least as long as 8 out of 10 of the front guys.

 

Nico has no telemetry.

Expecting Rosberg to get past both Red Bulls within the first 2 laps, heck he will most likely overtake them down into T1.

Seriously Crofty? How hard is it to see the yellow T-cam. It was clearly Vettel 2nd and Ricciardo 4th.

Big contact for Rosberg. Very lucky to still be racing. As a Hamilton fan I can't help but think that shunt would have ended his race.
