    Hamilton did that lap as part of a 6 lap run. Fuel alone would have had him pretty much at 1:20 on a qualifying run. Even with the rule changes they'll be faster than last year.

    That cheesetastic picture of Chandok is another reason not to keep visiting!

    Which part of the 6 lap run, though? If it was the last then obviously there's not much there. Also they're limiting the DRS usage, which make that time pretty incredible compared to last year quali.

    Start.

    He's been doing all of his runs like that today. Super fast and then 4 or 5 slow laps. I guess they're working on degradation.

    @thelzdking Clipsal 500 (this weekends race) is on next weekend, and the following races are a random mix of delayed, live and highlights I think. Better than nothing but makes the series difficult to follow.

    Joined the league. I'll probably be low in the standings again seeing as I don't really have a clue.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    I was quite certain Mercedes wouldn't be any more competitive than they were last year, but I'd love to be wrong.

    When his latest comment means he's more right than last time, yes.

    Probably not going to happen but what the hell, I'll ask. It may transpire that I could end up going to Monza.

    Where would be the best place to sit?

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Turn 1, as close to the corner as you can possibly get.

    This. And only this, really.

    Maybe Ascari, actually.

    GA comes across as a bit of a dick weirdo writing people off one seconds and then singing praises the next, i'm sure his technical ability is very good but he should stick to that on the sidelines

    Much like Chandhok, if he was any good at it, he'd still be doing it rather than talking about it.

    You are both wonderfully correct

    Except chandhok just doesn't have any money. I feel that all the drivers hit a certain level of skill then it plateau's into money and strategy.

    Or my personal favourite, more money than talent. Yoong actually getting sidelined by his own team because he was so shit is still amazing in the modern era of no pre-qualifying and the like.

    Yeah, they're both good. I saw more overtaking at 6c than Ascari though (and the Ascari grandstands seem a bit further back from the track, I guess for safety reasons).

    Here's the view from 6c.
