    Think I saw banned under his name when looking at the last few pages of the Malaysian GP earlier.
    Ah, that's a shame; especially that it's race day tomorrow!

    roughly that yeah, maybe later if there are safety car's or rain (the latter is unlikely as I understand it from the weather forecast)

    9:45 ish yea...


    Also, the seats will be comfy. I remember when I did kart racing and the seats were a nice fit and it was surprisingly comfortable.

    Webber's now starting from the pit lane because Red Bull have changed the gearbox, gear ratios, rear suspension, rear wing and clutch.

    Should be an interesting Grand Prix today. Seems that tyre degradation on the soft tyres will play a more riskier aspect in the race than usual.

    they probably need to be as the drivers will spend so long in them!

    if the soft tyres don't even last 5 laps I hope someone starts a new race where the idiot who made them at Pirrelli can be run over by everyone.

    This is going to be a great race and it would be really interesting to see what Vettle does.

    The seats are moulded to the drivers individual butts and we spend a lot of time pre-season making sure that none of the electrical boxes and such around the cockpit impinge on his elbows. Not sure the belts are that comfy because they have to be tight to do their job but I guess without them fastened and with your legs in the cockpit padding its probably quite comfy.

    The cockpit without a seat is a nightmare though. The IS supoort guy does the pedals for pit stop peactise and usually ends up bracing himself with his butt in the air to keep it from getting tender!

    I sat in Vitaly's seat once. Bags of room in the shoulders but I got a bit wedged in at the hips! Wouldn't want to try Romain's...

    True, and they're super strong and can lift thr entire driver out thr car in the seat in a bad accident.

    To be fair. Pirelli are doing what they were told to.

    yeah, the safety aspect and stuff is pretty impressive, amazing with some of the crashes that happen they can get out of the car without looking much affected at all by it!

    then we need to get em to run over whoever told em to do it! it's insane that any F1 tyre can not last 5 laps of any race, it's truly shocking at any level of motorsport, yet alone the supposed pinnacle of it!

    less than 30 mins to go yaay; I have a feeling that Raikkonen will sneak past Hamilton by the end of the first lap as the former has good starts and tbh this may be the early morning cobwebs but I am struggling to remember when Hamilton made a very good start.... I put Hamilton for the win in my fantasy picks but given his relatively poor record with tyre management I think he might be in trouble..

    If the soft tyre is as short living as predicted then I think tyres have actually went over the line and are now heavily detrimental on the entire experience as it kind of devalues qualifying and creates artificial tension...

    I really hope karma pays Vettel a visit and Webber finishes ahead of him

    Reckon it will be between Kimi and vettel for the win today. Depending on which strategy works.

    Hamilton made a great start off the line in Malaysia but got cut off by other cars...I don't get the sudden surge of people talking down his starts at all tbh, he's had some bad ones like any top driver but generally he starts pretty well...

    Kimi wins for me.

    Hamilton second.

    Alonso third.

    Massa fourth.

    Rosberg fifth.
