When Perez met up with Alonzo before going inside for the weigh in, it looked like he tapped on Alonso and raised up a finger and said something like "I almost had you or I could have beat you". Alonso half smiled but looked a little pained, too. Sergio was sure on a good one.

That video's already been yanked. This one prolly will be too.

Vettel's post-race comments do nothing to dispel my opinion of him, which is that he's a front-running brat.

I did the same think thinking hey another hour and half should be fine, but hell no, why cannot the DVR recognise the same fricking show is on , I wanted to see the interviews I always like them.

I am thinking after China there will be 2 spanish speaking drivers on the Ferarri team

Alonzo gave him a yeah bud, with the knowing look on his face he barely beat him

I always add a 1 hr buffer to all F1 recordings in order to cover weather delays. If you really wanted to be safe, the FIA has announced this year all races will be limited to four hours, due to Canada's five hour weather induced race last year.

It will be interesting... Perez, in interviews has said (staunchly) that he is sticking with Sauber for the rest of the year.

He obviously wants a chance at winning a race this year then

thats what i was thinking.
I mean "everyone" wants to drive for Ferrari... but in 2012? maybe not so much
Alonso will be fine, as he certainly can drive. But lackluster season after lackluster season for Massa? it'll be the night of the long knives soon enough. Maybe he can get a mid-pack job in Indy car like his fellow countryman?

And Nixon said he'd never resign.

Perez has absolutely nothing to gain by campaigning for the job at this point. He's better off letting it come to him in due course. If Massa is canned during the season and contracts can be finessed to give Perez a shot at it, I bet a dollar to a donut he'd take it, previous statements or not.

As bad as Massa is doing, it seems in everbody's best interest to let Massa's year play out for the better or worse and let his contract naturally expire. Perez isn't going to climb in that POS Ferrari and suddenly have it on the podium. Ferrari's problems run much deeper than Massa.

Yeah, I don't see a mid-season driver change. Too disruptive for everyone.

What would be the point for Ferrari?
It doesn't matter who's the second driver in that car.
I doubt two Vettels would be able two win the manufacturer's title for Ferrari.
Knowing the uncompetitive status of the current car, why bother letting Phil go
when you wouldn't find a tier one driver to replace him in a lousy car?

I dunno, I doubt Ferrari is already conceding the constructor's, although they obviously believe they have deep problems yet again.

What's the earliest any team has changed its second driver?
