    Nice to see F1 back again! Spain is not my favourite circuit but I'm still looking forward to the race hugely. There should also be a lot of upgrades from the teams so it will be interesting to see if the running order will change.

    Felt like another winter break indeed.

    Is the BBC broadcasting the Spanish GP this weekend?

    They should do kart races on free weekends or something.

    I'd pay to view them. Bernie, you are losing money there, make it happen.


    And now seriously, I hope the race is good. It will be interesting to see who gets the most from the new hard tyres.

    I think the Construction of the Tires is causing the Delamination's . We saw last year and Before last year drivers went accidentally Over Debris but they got Less grip and we saw rarely a Puncture but not Surprising Punctures like this season.

    Great thing with tires since a few years is that all teams have the same :)

    Do they though, David Croft and Ant Davidson were saying that Hamilton's and Di Resta's could be random tires that haven't been manufactured correctly.

    Tires are way too fragile. Hoping to see proper tires for 2014 or bring in a new manufacturer.

    I don't think it is the manufactures problem, it is FIA and their missions to Pirelli... :(

    The teams asked for tires that resembled the mayhem in Canada 2010.
    But i´m pretty sure they never wanted tires to literally fall off into pieces.

    Pirelli can easily make a tire that lasts the entire race. But then the teams will complain again, like they always do.

    I've had pasta that was tougher than these tyres.

    Hell, I've had ice cream tougher than these tyres. At least it melted slower.
