Well, this is truly a perfect opportunity for Seb to show us if he can pull off an "epic" drive for the history books. One worthy of a almost 3*WDC.
Last time this happened was Silverstone 2010 and he finished 7th.

Can any one answer the following.
If Vettel starts the race from the pit lane, what changes are allowed to his car.

If they change an engine, presumably he has to start from the pit lane any how.
If a gear box change was taken, can they change gear ratios, or will they have to fit the ratios posted pre qualifying.

Is it possible/likely that the slower drivers will just "get out of his way" in the first 4 to 5 laps as if they were being blue-flagged? They might do it subconsciously, because of the title battle going on. But then he might come up against Petrov, who might return the "favour" he did to Alonso at the same track in 2010! So many permutations...

Alonso needs to make hay while the sun shines and jump Kimi and Crashdonado by the end of the first lap - or as soon as DRS has been switched on. The title COULD now come down to 1 or 2 points, so tomorrow's race is vital!

The car ran short of fuel due to a calibration on the car and the Anglo-blind on here have come take this to mean that I, Sebastian Vettel am the one who actually controls such things! Pathetic.

Should Vettel go on all-out attack and throw caution to the wind? Can he afford to do that? Or should he be patient and "pick off" the slower cars lap by lap? He has an impatient streak and Rocky will be working on his mindset tonight. The evil Dr Marko will be telling him to "attack" "attack" "attack" and Rocky will be telling him to calm down! lol

Will the adrenaline and excitement allow Alonso to get any sleep tonight? Stella will also be working on him tonight...but Alonso is very experienced and knows what he needs to do. He'll probably sleep like a baby.

Hamilton will be so desperate he will try to stuff Webber, Miss and take out Button and himself for the Brit Trifecta!
