Nando muscles into lead after corner 1. Lulu causes kaos & kills his chances (how ever slim) for points while Vettel,Kubica & Webber battle it out for 234. Let's just hope it's a great show. Enjoy all...

insomniac. in case some are wondering about your post, i had added a note that renault had not signed with lotus, (reported on f1sa), but then i saw a report on autosport, saying they had. however close reading of autosport, still fails to confirm it. the delay is due to the legal complications over the lotus name.

Quali may have been quicker but the finger snatched pole by .075 seconds. Hardly the great margin you imply. The spaniard will get through as Vettel dives in front of Mark to ruin his start.
As with all things Red Bull they will throw away the championship in blind support of Vettel.

huvet, i dont think that i implied that there was a big difference. yesterday, webber was a good bit faster than ettel, and others were saying that seb wa well beaten. i just pointed out the times were irrelevant. and that the real pace would be seen today. i reckoned that times would be in 1.35s, and was right. seb had a poor 1st sect, but then blitzed the 2 and 3 sections, to snatch pole. it was close, and shows that both bulls have equal machinery. we'll see what the morning brings. enjoy the race.

It's a long race and Webber has no problem coming from behind to finish on the podium. Starting on the unused, dirty side of the track is going to suck for his start, but he's fast on this track and there are bound to be a lot of factors that have nothing to do with the drivers. Will the track surface hold up, will it rain, who will handle the adversity the best? Mark's pretty adept at it...some of the other drivers, not so much.

Fresh track with tricky conditions means bad luck is waiting to pounce at every corner. Even if webber does drop to 3rd off the line, he's still got the pace to stick with them and should anything go wrong he'll be ready to make up places.
Mark attracts bad like like sh!t does flies, so lets all hope he has a problem free time and we can see some real racing.
Mclaren look to be able to overtake, but not run great pace in clear air so i think a 4th and 5th are all they can hope for, which would put them out of the championship running really.
