Things that I noticed:
- Grosjean top of the rest.
- Very close between Ferrari and Mercedes
- Bottas beats Maldonado
- JEV is no where again in comparaison of Ricciardo
- Sergio ahead of Button
- Guti under five tenth of Hulk that is not bad for a rookie.
- In Pic's place, I would worry about my seat.

We'll have a great Lotus/Mercedes/Ferrari battle !

Another show of Newey's cars. They were fastest in the long runs as well. They suffered a bit more than Lotus and Ferrari with tyre degradation but that's nothing to worry about, their pace was enough to keep at bay their rivals. Great job by the drivers and off course by Adrian Newey and his team of engineers.

Maxie almost 1.5 seconds slower than his team mate. No point in having timing equipment that measures to 1 thousandth of a second when Maxie's on the track cheaper and just as indicative to use a sundial!

Does F1 need these false races in countries with very little car culture.

India : People with cross purposes, and millions on the poverty line. Lots of corruption.
Korea : Disinterested public, track miles from nowhere. Track a complete white elephant, never used till GP comes next year. Very polluted atmosphere
Malaysia : F1 is trying to show "green motorsport" and the air quality of the country is the worst in the world, apart from maybe China.
And if Russia comes on board, can you imagine the mafia field day with corruption and visitor extortion.

What has Bernie done to the sport ?????

there are some photos on another site of tyres. there has been serious blistering and partial delamination again. but whilst saying that, seb did 25 laps on the medium tyre and at the end was lapping a full sec faster than any other car on the same tyre (apart from webber)

If the tyres aren't working, may I suggest they reduce the race to 19 laps and make a mandatory car change at 10 laps.
That will make it very interesting and nobody will see it because of the smog !!!!
