    So why was Horner so grumpy? They're still P1 & P2....

    And McLaren? What happened? :confused:

    Hey Ho. Tomorrow's another day. But I can see a Ferrari win tomorrow.

    How far are they willing to go to make sure Ferrari are competitive?

    Changing a rule which a lot of cars are designed around is just ridiculous, they should have done it at the end of the season so that the teams have time to adjust to it.

    Anything that gets Vettel off pole is good with me.

    Fingers crossed Vettel makes a mistake tomorrow - would be good to see Mark win, or even Alonso - anyone but Vettel - please! :)

    What's with all the Vettel hate? :s
    The season has been awesome so far this year regardless of his / RB dominance.

    I think these rule changes are rubbish btw how can they change something so fundamental to the way most of the cars on the grid are designed around mid season :grr:

    Hows it been awesome, he's led virtually every race and won most of them, it's boring as hell.

    I have no ill feelings towards the guy but I want to see people fighting for the championship and not see the same guy win time and time again mainly because he has the best car.

    I know that's F1 for you but it ought to change so that the cars are equal but it never will.

    I used to sit down and watch whole races now I go back and forth and sigh when it's the same ol same ol winner again.

    Theres been some interesting races and buttons win was great but if someone leads start to finish and isn't even really challenged it's not exactly a race is it.

    YAWN.

    There have been a couple of dull races, the last one at Valencia is a case in point, but there have been some very exciting ones. Take Canada for example, Vettel led from start to the final lap and just lost it on one corner. Even if Vettel had won, you wouldn't have said it wasn't awesome.

    Other races in the season pale in comparison to Canada but there's been a lot of overtaking, a lot of mistakes, even though Vettel's been out in front. Sure, if you only watch one car or one position (first), it may have been dull but there's more to F1 than who's on the top step of the podium.

    Good work! You really are a dedicated fan being there so early!

    I'll have to do the same thing when I go to Spa later in the year.

    Wooooo bad pit stop for Vettel, Hamilton and Alonso in front of him!


    YAY! :D

    Fingers crossed for the rest of the race.

    I'm annoyed I miss the F1 while I'm here :( Sounds like a good race.

    Dammit Button's out. :(

    Go Alonso, go Hamilton! Best podium we can hope for is Alonso, Vettel, Hamilton IMO. Webber is catching Hamilton though...

    Phew Lewis made it to 4th! Phew.... kept Massa behind just.

    Shame Webber got team orders at the end though. :(

    Good to see someone else on the top step of the podium!

    Good race, nice to see Vettel not having it all his way. Would have been nice if Hamilton had had enough fuel to try to hold onto third.

    I'm just waiting for the penalty :(

    Apart from the last lap or two, that was quite dull. One thing came to my mind at the end, though - doesn't Stefano Domenicali look like Vic Reeves?

    Considering Schumi got for pretty much the same stop&go penalty, i expect reprimand at worst for Hamilton, because he rarely gets anything more than reprimand for reckless racing (yes, that crashing in Massa was that).
