WHAT A THRILLING QUALIFYING!!

I can't wait for the race tomorrow... and the post-race conference...

and all the wonderful quotes: "The team did a fantastic job", "The car was feeling good the whole weekend", "The season is long and we never know so let's see", and "I was struggling with balance" etc etc :) :)

mclaren seriously have a lot of work to-do. over one second off the pole is not a good start to the season. maybe it's this track but they just don't seem to have the raw pace.

they have gone their own way in not making a red-bull clone but it looks like that design is fundamentally better in producing downforce.

OMG! What in the world is going on? A seven time world champion qualifies 7th and is out qualified by his teammate (Rosberg 5th)! Get used to it Michael it's not 1995 anymore! Todays drivers are a lot better than the slugs you were racing back in the day! You should've stayed retired mate! The English press is going to have a field day with this one (lol)!!!

:p

What we've learned-
1. Scumacher needs to quickly raise his game or this comeback will only harm his reputation
2. Button is going to struggle to match Hamilton for pace
3. Kobayashi, as I have said all along, is NOT the new Nuvolari, or he wouldn't have been outqualified by a 39-year old who hasn't raced in years. One half-decent race doesn't make you a F1 superstar.
4. The new teams have utterly failed to enhance the sport - in fact they have made it worse - and I for one was quite glad when Q1 was over and they were out of the way. It was a nonsense to expand the grid in an economnic downturn.
5. The sharp end will however be close and exciting. Roll on the race.

Q1 is awfully boring this year. Six out of the seven dropouts will be from the new teams unless someone has mechanical issues. For the new teams to even challenge for a Q2 slot they need to improve approximately 3 seconds a lap, not gonna happen anytime soon.

@ fellainishair his reputation? He should have thought about that before attempting this comeback! The reality of the matter is, he is 41 yrs old! And he isn't going to get any better. Time is the great equalizer. You can't fight it!!!

@ Bandonga I agree the English papers are rather sensational (lol). But, the truth is Schumacher's performance wasn't up to par. And his blind loyal followers are probably in hiding right now! Who knows he (schumi) might pull something out of his! He has all the time in the world! He's only 41 (lol)!!

:p
