Will Stevens not racing apparently due to that fuel problem, which is a shame. But hopefully we'll see if the other Manor can finish.

Yeah it's unfortunate for him and the team, hopefully we'll get 19 starters today then!

Cheers.

For ages f1.com had a countdown on the page, with the race start time and local time shown. Now it's gone, when did this idea of simple convenience become obsolete? :rolleyes:
I went on the site last night and the countdown and times were there.

At least the other one will start and make McLaren not last.

Could very easily happen, the Manor should be relatively reliable as they are using the same car as last year which was pretty reliable, the same can't be said for the McLarens but touch wood they're doing ok so far this weekend.

Real shame about Will Stevens. Even though he would've been at the back of the grid, it would've been nice to see him against Merhi

I get the feeling that the media are making Ferraris chance of giving the Mercedes a fight far bigger than they actually are, I've seen nothing so far that hasn't shown me the Mercedes won't just drive off into the distance. I still think they have a lot more in the car if they need it.

Hamilton will run away through turn 1, whilst vettel defends into turn 1, forcing the pack together. Nico takes the wrong and ends up in 4th.

This is what I hope/think will happen.

They apparently had good race pace on Friday.

I still reckon it will be a Mercedes 1-2 but Ferrari seem closer at least.

They do seem to be closer than they have ever been before but I still think the W06 has pace in hand should they need it, hopefully we will see today

A few people are saying Manor are only running one car because they only have one engine. Surely if this was the case, (a) somebody would've noticed swapping engines in FP1, and (b) wouldn't they run Stevens instead because he seems faster at this stage?

That's the first I've ever heard of that, if they mean one working engine they'd be correct as Stevens has a fuel (pump?) issue so obviously the engine isn't working from that

Just one working engine full stop, and that they're covering up the fact by saying it's a fuel system problem. Probably just some kind of conspiracy theory though. I don't really understand it.
