Force India running FRIC suspension. They've never tried it before (in a race)
"What happened, Nico?"
Will Buxton made a good point. Of the team principals for the teams which finished 2-5 in the constructor's last year, none is now in the same job.
It's impressive how Red Bull have fixed their problems and are close to the sharp end of the field again. FWIW, Ricciardo faster than Vettel in both Friday practice sessions. That may be worth as little as Ferrari topping FP 1 and being second in FP 2.
Cold weather today. I wonder what Sunday will bring?
Qualifying is probably going to be wet.
It was fairly wet. Basically the clouds were low and there was light spitting most of the day. A few off-tracks but no impacts. They were switching between intermediate and full wet tires all sessions today.
And BTW the cars sound fantastic!
Low clouds or was it just the normal smog? :eek1
Smog isn't as bad as I was expecting, and certainly much less than other places I've been.
More than a little wet! Yes, I think those were clouds.
Wet or dry, Hamilton has the beating of Rosberg right now. Other than that, the only surprise is Ricciardo once again besting Vettel. Tomorrow's start will be interesting. I wonder how many risks Vettel will take to get in front of his teammate? I think he might do something silly, could even take both of them out.
With the Red Bulls clogging up the Mercedes duo and a perhaps-quicker Alonso lurking, the first lap is going to be intriguing.
Dunno why it's taken me this long to realize it, but Lotus' financial problem has left them saddled with two mediocre pay drivers. On Friday Maldonado embarrassed his team. First, eh drove of the track while adjusting his steering wheel settings. Then he misjudged his entry into pit lane and wrecked his car on the pit entry wall. The best drivers in the world are in F1?
If it comes down to Hamilton-Rosberg at the end, a la Malaysia, you get the sense from Rosberg that one of the cars may not finish the race.
Grosjean is hardly "mediocre".
We'll have to agree to disagree.
Boy oh boy do the Mercedes have big advantage, BTW they still sound like Nascar's
Anybody else hear that whining sound coming from Vettel's car?
From the cockpit?
Alonso is gaining momentum. And with Domenicali being replaced the new guy is under pressure to deliver him with a car capable of winning. And Kimi is in the same boat as Vettel..............the car doesn't like him.
Say what you will about the new car (I don't like it) it is shaping up to be an interesting season. The wild card is the return of in-season testing. Any one of the top teams could find that little something that changes the car completely. And they are most assuredly working on just that 24/7.
Good race but bummer that it's a run away at the front.
Alonso has such fine control. Near race end they showed a super slow mo of him locking up a front wheel but he keeps it slow rolling as it smokes
He seems to have an amazing feel for the car and what it will do on the edge.
Too bad they can't give him a competitive car.
