Seb's car currently in bits, not sure what's wrong with it. He probably can't wait for this race weekend to be over.

Gearbox replacement? They wouldn't have wanted to break curfew so did it now?

Nico does worry me somewhat. I sense some desperation coming through and in that desperation and determination to stop Lewis' streak, I get the feeling he'll be very aggressive. As in, he'd rather both crash out than Lewis win and he come 2nd.

It will be interesting to see Seb coming back through the field. I don't want to predict how high I can get. I don't think top 5 is entirely out of the question.

I don't think he got the guts to do so. He will rather be frustrated and make mistake himself than crash into someone. Besides, he got a great chance to win on pace today. No need to be desperate.

Seen some people talk about a battle for 3rd 

 

Won't happen without a crash/spin IMO

Ricciardo should comfortably have enough pace, he should be way quicker than Grosjean/Bottas and a bit quicker than the Ferraris

Has the rain washed out the entire track? Is the track fully green now?

This is one of the important questions that must be answered.

:rotfl:  Asking Toto to discuss his emotions twice and, as per of the German, he dismisses the emotion discussion and goes on about race preparations.

He was very proud about it on RTL. Even asking if the germans are less liberal people for only giving 7 points to Austria.

 

Sometimes I just love Niki. :p

Does anyone think the popularity/interest in F1 has decreased globally/in your own country, has it?

 

I think the UK has taken a hit, Schumacher retiring, move to SKY, Vettel/Mercedes domination, the engine noise and my interest has certainly waned.

Schumacher was not popular in the UK - the move to Sky is by far the biggest variable here.

Vettel reporting that something feels wrong. "Similar to a race a few years back when the rear anti roll bar was broken."

Ricciardo matching Vettel & Rosberg matching Hamilton last year and within touching distance this year doesn't really say an awful lot about the quality of the F1 grid. Only Raikkonen and Alonso, for me, have their reputation intact.

 

The likes of Senna and Hakkinen and Schumacher used to slaughter their team-mates and they were of similar quality to the ones above.

People bitching already saying Seb is 'moaning'

The guy has hardly had time to drive this weekend.

What do you want him to say??

Give the guy a break man

I hope Nico has a good start and I hope he's as aggressive with Lewis as he was with Schumi. Instead of lifting when wheel to wheel.

Raikkonen has the thermal camera, so Bernie has chosen him to crash today.
