F1 » Vettel, Webber head Suzuka grid as Raikkonen spins


Red Bull looked dangerously confident right from the start of qualifying, and they cemented their control of the grid at Suzuka with emphatic early fliers in Q3.

Manxie (as in the Isle of?, mad TT riders etc etc?)
I totally know where you are coming from. Kimi is brill.
A hack asked him "what happened during qualifying," and he replied, "I spun!",
"and the effect his yellows had on the other's final quali laps?
"I don't care!"
He was once asked what he did in Finland in his free time?
He said "In the summer there is ****ing, and Fishing, and in the winter there isn't any Fishing!"
That's my Iceman. You just have to love him. He's what GP drivers are supposed to be like.

Go Kimi

Yup wheeler, that's me, all the way from Doolish mate. Yes, classic Kimi and as always an honest response to any question. Lol even the finish winter gets the rightful response. Point i also tried o make was that everyone seems allowed to make mistakes such as 130r etc.but or except MS.....

I love the TT races Mr Manxie. Been a few times.
Talk about mad!
Even rode the course on me Suzuki 250 GT when I was a lad. Frightened meself silly I did! But it was proper!
I have also done a spot of WINTER ice hole fishing in Finland as well.
Trust Raikkonen to only know about the ****ing.
He's a very very naughty boy! :-)
Hoping Jens beats Ham tomorrow, and that Alonso beats Seb, and that Kimi beats them all.
Think I'll go back to Finland soon for a spot of f'ing. Happy days!

The following could be of interest to those not allergic to statistics.
Both MP4-28 would have made use of all of their allocated engines by tomorrow by using engine number eight (fresh engine).
Both RB8 would have made use of seven of their eight allocated engines by tomorrow, (fresh engine tomorrow).
Both F2012 would have made use of six of their eight allocated engines by tomorrow (engine number six has done Italy and Singapore already).

Oh come on Crash moderators.
Read it again. It is a funny joke which you obviously did not understand.
All it says is that Lewis Hamilton, Barack Obama, Will Smith, and Tiger Woods are all very successful people of colour. Michael Jackson must have been kicking himself because, he took special medication to lighten his own skin colour.
It isn't insulting anyone. It is a harmless joke, which MOST people would find amusing.
Honestly, what is wrong with you guys? You can take political correctness too far you know. Lighten up a bit.

Webber is going to take out Vettel in the first corner...hahaha....

There is no guarantee that starting on pole will win. RB is not reliable this year and there is good chance they will blow an engine or Vettel will drive off the track around spoon.

Alonso will pull of another 18 points lead over Vettel..just watch it. I was right about Hamilton not finishing in Singapore and will be right again this weekend!!! Voodoo Vettel!!

@insideline....well with the TT on our doorstep each year, i've come to appreciate the skills required for racing and when the likes oj John Mguinness and Guy Martin (whom imet personally several times) fly past one at speeds only imaginable, on roads not fit for anything over 60mph, then you get an understanding of the skills applied. F1 is much safer than the TT btw. I've always said yhat if i ever came back to earth in another time, i'd like to be a F1 pilot and would defo go fishing as much as Kimi lolol...in fact, he really is one of a kind, the likes like Eddie Irvine once was. Great bloke, great attitude towards life :)
