    Just finished watching recorded quali. Bloody Red Bulls yet again, hopefully the race tomorrow will be interesting as all the overtaking will be in the first sector where they're terrible. Looking like Jenson's challenge for the title might be over though :(

    Jenson's not been up to scratch for a while for the title. Like you said, disappointing to see the wrong Red Bull on pole... here's hoping that tomorrow is eventfull like the BBC were speculating.

    Good luck to the McLaren boys, they'll need a lot of luck to stay in the hunt.

    It's starting to look very much like a straight contest between the Red Bulls for the title. Maybe they'll take each other out again...

    I'd rather Vettel took out Alonso and left Webber to win it.

    The safety car is too slow now. They are all capable of sub 2:40 lap times. They should bring in the safety car, and run under full course yellows for a few laps with the leader setting the pace.

    Shame more of them don't have Lewis' attitude to getting the race going. Too many of them acting like big girls instead of the racing drivers they're supposed to be. Both Red Bulls seem keen to try and keep the SC out for as long as possible instead of being forced to actually race.

    The safety car is holding them up by at least 3 seconds per lap now. Far too conservative!!

    The red bulls dont want to race because it will guarantee them good points.

    Indeed but it's not the attitude of someone who thinks they're world championship material. They should be racing, not tiptoeing around the track behind the SC in an attempt to safeguard their points.
