Rosberg once again outpacing the fastest driver to walk this planet. Both bulls looking speedy and I think Nico(hulk) could surprise us again in qualifying. Also wouldn't be surprised if Ricciardo does some of his usual qualifying magic.

Looks like Horner ordered Vettel to switch-on traction control and also ordered Webber's mechanics to install the map on Webber's car for him to use, while at Mercedes they inadvertently left the yellow wire on Lulu's traction control map disconnected.

I'm not sure what to make of the fact that I'm totally not surprised to see Alonso in fifth. I at least know it makes me reflect on how confident they were of steamrolling this season before it started.

It's funny that Lulu finally is wearing a hat. They made one specifically for him. He is such a primadonna. And I'm a fan. If he cared more about going fast and being consistent instead of worrying that the existing hats don't look good on him, he could be so much more.

Rob, good morning (from this end), After the German GP of 2012 when RBR were caught by the FIA making use of two engine maps, one to memorise lunch control and the other to mimic traction control the rules were changed than but they kept the point gained because of the wording of the rules, from than the rules says that teams have to nominate any one engine map used in the last four races as a reference map to race on.
Before the Singapore race RBR tested a new engine map which was ok'd by the FIA, and that's what they used in Singapore. now lets see if these facts will be disagreed with on here!

Forgot/left out, I don't/can't see how the map RBR tested before Singapore and approved by the FIA was allowed to be raced on as that map couldn't be called a map that they have raced on/used in the in the last four races.
