    I'm not sure about Vettel's chances... RB didn't look that good when it was dry. Lotus is fast and if they're easy on tyres... podium, why not? Ferrari is quite strong too and they have good starting position. It really depends how badly tyres will get destroyed. Mercedes and RB have been whining a lot about tyres so we'll see. It's really hard to predict. Hamilton's tyres in Q were in horrible condition so it certainly doesn't look good for them. I think that Ferrari, Lotus and Force India will have good race tomorrow.

    mostly agree :)

    My prediction is:

    1. Alonso
    2. Massa
    3. Raikkonen

    if it's dry

    Im really happy for Massa. Hopefully he will be up there this season! I reckon Alonso, Vettel, Hamilton....Kimi will make it Top-6. But obviously hoping for a miracle and Kimi p1 :p

    Rosberg just signed his contract as Mercedes no.2 driver. his own fault, should have passed Hamilton.

    Nice race, glad to see Hamilton finish no 3rd. His pit detour was hilarious indeed. :)

    I didnt get Rosberg,if Lewis was that slow, just overtake him! Webber looked really pissed off.

    Rosberg could have easily passed him risk free. Vettel backstabbed his team mate.

    well, it was quite obvious that Rosberg would be the #2 driver when LH signed for Merc. as for MW, well, it's always been like this.. so i'm not surprised. but i feel sorry both of them on this race as they were clearly given orders to let their teammates finish ahead of them.

    Well tbh it was the mechanic that messed stuff up not JB himself. When lollypop rises you go and no asking if you can or not :D


    Sad that Kimi's car was acting up and didn't feel good well better luck next time. Rosberg was following orders by staying back ofcourse he could have passed but it's not fun to make your employer mad.

    And Vettel was an ass. FA wth trying to race with broken frontend -.-

    Lotus is really bad in wet conditions and those pit stops... But anyway, from WC point of view it's not bad. Fernando made stupid mistake and now Massa leads him in points too.

    actually, if you guys kept an eye on live timing, Kimi was probably the faster car out there today, when he was in clean air he was almost always the fastest car out there. don't understand why it was so difficult to overtake for him today.

    Supposedly it was all over the place for him in the corners, so i'm guessing something was off balance when in the dirty air.

    he was still fast. remember they showed onboard footage of him, still on inters in sector 1 (turns 1-4) and Brundle was saying how much of a handful the car is but Kimi still posted a purple sector. In dirty air you always loose grip and downforce and kill your tyres so it was a shame that he struggled for clean air today. Kimi's first stint on dry tyres, when he had clean air he was running faster than the rest of the field for about 8 laps out of 10 or so. they were fast.

    Webber showed middle finger to Vettel after Vettel passed him. Typical Webber, he's definitely not the nicest guy there.
