Oh for crying out loud, this is 2011 all over again!

Obviously I'm disappointed for Lewis, but as a F1 fan... wow what a session! The two Ferraris and Williams fighting through, Hamilton fighting through, Vettel and Button defending and hopefully finally a podium for Hulkenberg.

This race should be fantastic.

*realises he said the same thing at Austria*

Doubt so, to be honest. Vettel and Red Bull won't muck their strategy up like Williams did back in Austria.

Unless you take into account the fact that Webber's at this race :P

Ferrari won't be fighting Williams haha. The Williams off the line can probably jump a couple of rows.

The Merc speed is so much greater than the RB though, plus it has the Merc engine (obviously) :p

And Webber is at the race.

Not sure if Hulkenberg or Button will take a podium, would like both of them to do it though.

When I saw Hulkenberg take pole I was ecstatic, then I saw Vettel, Button and Rosberg top it :(

I don't know. It may just be me being optimistic again but Red Bull's strongest part of the track is just before the longest straight on the circuit. According to Brundle they were mighty through the Maggots-Becketts complex there on Friday when he was watching (as you may expect). Plus Vettel did a very encouraging long run on Friday, so it may not be as easy to just cruise up and pass for the Mercedes this race. I may be proven wrong, but I want to hold some optimism close to me.

Hamilton's a moron, simple as that.

I've had enough once and for all. What an idiot.
I'm sure you'll be back on his side pretty soon if he wins tomorrow. 


You're wrong. I'm already back on his side, just had one of my meltdowns. They happen every once in a while as you know.

Need to stick around in good and bad times.

Fuck me.

However that is.
You see this is the thing. You're fine with casting doubt upon Vettel's attitude and general personality. Yet when the "anti-Hamilton circle jerkers" start, you get grumpy and go in to defense mode. 

Driving matters aside, Vettel and Hamilton are really not so different in the way fans criticise them. They both get jumped on for anything. I wish you could see that.

Well what a Qualifying session! I honestly thought it was over and that they wouldn't improve their final runs, but my god, sector 3 just dried up so quickly!

When I saw Hulkenberg go pole I went 'oh wow, yes Hulkenberg!' Then Vettel went on pole and I went 'Agh, no'. Then Rosberg went on pole and I went 'Oh great, pole for Rosberg...' So yeah, disappointing that Lewis didn't take it. 

I honestly do not know why Lewis didn't just go for it. I'm no expert, but in these damp conditions where the track is continually changing, why the heck would you not finish the lap?! Anything can happen, and it did, they got faster.

As a fan, I'm gonna say that I still think Lewis will win the race, he's got the best car, and I think he will be so pumped for the win which will give him an edge. 

Lol at Ferrari though :p

I do.

I wish all of us would stop bashing drivers for whatever reasons and simply appreciate their skills and the fact that they give us something to talk about and look forward to in our free-time, but that's not gonna happen. And therefore I'm taking part in the mud-throwing as best as I can.
