  4. Anyone see Ferrari's new nose shape? and the end of the wings?

    Notice Red Bulls 9 (I think thats what Ted said in FP1) 10 new fins on the front wing?
     

  5. I think I heard Gary Andersson saying that they had moved from a 7 elements to 9 elements in their front wing?
     
  6. I thought Ted said 9, but then I assumed I missed one more, as 9 would mean a uneven side??? My bad but thanks for confirming :)

  8. I think if it stays dry and cold, and Merc locks out the front row, one of them can probably win the race.
    If it´s a rain race i expect the bulls to come through pretty quickly.
    If it´s hot for some reason i think Ferrari and Lotus will be the favorites.
     
  9. Won't be hot :p

    If thanks to some miracle it's not raining, then rain will be in the air. 5 days straight says the weather report, and I go to work on a moped at the moment, joy.
     
  10. I'm chucking an all-nighter here in Australia, with a big cup of coffee :D

    An interesting FP3. Wet/Dry with a drying line on track for last 10 minutes. Everyone (except Bottas) got on the supersofts for those last few minutes.

    Still hard to pick what will happen in qualifying and the race if the conditions remain changeable.

    Not sure about how clear these are:

    Now to keep me up until qualifying it will be some Codemasters F1 2012 action at Monaco:)

    I just lay down on the Sofa to watch FP3 on a blazing hot Saturday afternoon, and fell asleep waiting for it to start. Just woke up and it's over. Dammit!

    Anyway, during my nap I had a horrible dream. I dreamt that Williams were announcing Susie Wolff as their second driver to replace Bottas in a deal to get cheap Mercedes Engines.

    When I opened my eyes, There's Susie Wolff on the screen :confused:

    God please let's hope this dream has as much chance of coming true as all my other ones.

  12. Common Felipe :(
     
  13. Wouldn't be a proper wet qualifying without Massa beaching the car :D

  14. Alonso currently in P5, but have to say Ferrari aren't looking pretty good in the wet.
    Hopefully it stays dry tomorrow
     
  15. Go Vettel you good thing :D
     
  16. Bottas qualifies 3rd fastest!

    :roflmao:
     
  17. Great surprise! Well done Valtteri!:thumbsup:
     
  18. Absolutely brilliant job by Bottas! I'm beginning to understand the hype that was around him :)
     
  19. If its wet tomorrow/damp tomorrow it will be very interesting all the drivers probably have 2 pretty worn inters except backmarkers and 2 slightly worn tyres which will make for a very interesting race
