  5. Now here is my fav track of the season
    I want to see Ferrari fight for positions in Q3 rather than fighting to get into Q3
    How much lap time can be posted in Q3 this season??

    Hi, I don't completely understand your question but if you're refering to literally "how much laptime" then 107% rule but being in Q3 that's not llikely. If you're talking about the number of laps possible then I think the number of laps that can be done in any of the Q sessions is unlimited (correct me if I'm wrong, I don't know a lot about F1) so you could do as much as 39876 laps (or more) as long as you did them during the Q3 session (10 mins) hope that's what you mean :)

    I'd love to see Ferrari going very fast here too, and agree nice track!
     



  7. Last time Webber posted 1:20.981 in Q3 and due to new regulations in this season we are having lap times about 1.5 sec drift of 2011
    So i was expecting the pole lap could be 1:22 low to 1:21 high this time
    @Manuel Samaniego : Did you understand what i said now??

    @Kartik Sri Harsha

    Yeah, no idea actually, I think also a low 1:22 perhaps. geez
     
  9. I think the qualifying time is going to be around 1.20:700 -1.21:300 :whistling:
     
  10. I think it will be 1.21´s

  11. Mark Webber is chasing history in this race. If he finishes fourth here he will be the first driver to score 5 consecutive finishing positions that aren't 1st place. Currently he is tied with 3 or 4 drivers that also have 4 consecutive finishes.
     
  12. He also finish 4th in 2011 can he do it again, only time will tell:cool:
     
  13. Drivers with 4 consecutive finishes (that aren't 1st):

    Nelson Piquet in 1987: 2nd
    Michele Alboreto in 1992: 7th
    Heinz-Harald Frentzen in 1997: 3rd
    Mark Webber in 2011: 3rd
    Mark Webber in 2012: 4th (and still going)
     
  14. Maybe he'll fly under the radar this year as in 2010,
     
  15. I sort of hope Mark gets 4th, just so he beats that record....

    .... and then wins the next 4 races :p

    Driving til the wheels fall off

    I'm hoping Hamilton pulls out a win next weekend. It's long overdue.

  17. I hope Seb continue his win of bahrain and extend lead in WDC
     
  18. He was so close last year :)

    Gearing that was the problem. To short so he could not pass Vettel in the DRS zone.
     
  19. The Soft and hard as the choice was Correct due to Circuit conditions

    Previously we have 4 pit stop for this race last year and i guess it could be a 5 stop this time and i think that medium and Hard could be the choice for Spain because soft could be a problem due to the Tire window
    What do you guys think??
     
  20. The tires Pirelli will bring are Hard & Soft.
