I thought Webber had that one, stunning last sector by Vettel.

Another great performance by Hulkenberg, someone sign him FFS!

And a great session by Bottas, shame there was a couple of mistakes on his last lap or he could have been top 6.

Webber got quite close there...on these fast pace tracks with fast corners he does have a little extra, but then again, still not quite enough. I'll expect he'll take pole at Brazil though which is another track with a bunch of fast corner sections.

About what I expected from Kovalainen...6 tenths off, 5 places behind Romain. Sure, it's not terrible, but it's not exactly great either, think Valsecchi and a bunch of other guys could probably have done the same or better.

In Dutch we'd say it's neither meat nor fish :D

jjj trust you to have a negative comment about kovi! but did you not hear that he had no kers, and that is reckoned to be worth around .8 secs per lap? give him some credit for doing a great job.

what a bitter man pastor is...openly claiming that his team are sabotaging his car!

yes ty. after sector 2, seb was three tenths down, so he actually found four tenths in sector three! stunning. but as I have said bfore, ince announcing his retirement, weber is a changed driver. he even smiles now!

At least Guttierez and Chilton both made it to whithin 1 second behind their teammates...just...:D

@Richard

But wait...if you say Kovalainen is so great, yet he couldn't really seperate himself from vdG and Pic in his FP outings who you say are ordinary paydrivers and are now 9:9 in qualy...seems like those things are mutually exclusive, so what's it gonna be m8...Kova bad, or Giedo and Pic also quite good :D

Gotcha!

jjj. really your dislike of kovi seems to have no limits. kovi was not racing against vdg. all he was doing at caterham was TESTING the car to see if he could improve the car enough for vdg to get off the back row!

gotcha? no way!

JJJ, FFS The guy's never even sat in that car until yesterday that's an impressive performance.

Christ the fanboys keep telling us that Lulu's still learning the Mercedes after 12 months, 17 races and a private tyre test!
