    Downforce being a quarter-tonne lump of pig iron keeping the rear wheels firmly in contact with the track. AKA a Honda power unit.

    I think McLaren opted for the square ones believing them to be faster...

    Though apparently Alonso's chest pain was bad enough to stop him sleeping, so either through lack of sleep or painkillers he may not be 'coherent' [that and an even a relatively minor f1 crash could make those busted ribs a whole lot worse...]...

    What about Zinardi who doesn't have all his limbs?
    An injured Alonso would still outperform half the grid at their peak

    Well another debacle of a qualifying. At least Q3 was semi interesting this time round.

    You mean it was all over with three minutes to go instead of five this time.

    The sooner they go back to the old Quali systems the better, but knowing Bernie and Jean they'll have some hideous mutant hybrid systems ready to go...

    Manor will get quicker id think as the car improves. They have the best engine on the grid as long as they fix the aero bits the car will get faster and faster.

    With Wehrlein it was a combo of a decent lap combined with being in the right place at the right time re: eliminations...

    Stoffelufagus also out-qualified Jenson...

    It shows the car has some pace tho. Stoff seems to have got on the pace quick enough and like Wehrlein looks a solid driver with talent rather than being there for other reasons.
    I noticed Grosjean out qualified his team mate. I guess its too early still to judge inter team battles tho
