  1. Yay :) my favourite two drivers on the front of the grid. And birthday boy Buemi got into Q3. Good result :)

  2. Well, an okay grid. I dont see it producing much overtaking.
    Hamiltons mix of mechanical grip and straight line speed did him well, the Redbulls have the best all round package with Brawn just behind. Its going to be a procession.

    Unlucky for Jenson, brake problem, hope he can have a good race and a podium.

  3. Jenson Button, McLaren-Mercedes – 1′41.892

    1. Mclaren running 3 cars – Di montzemelo will be mad he can’t fit Schuey back in!

      1. he did look mad today when spotted with his old pal toad. his hair was all messed up :P

        1. i did notice he was doin his hair too! lol!

          Mclaren are gonna be certain for 3rd in the WCC with Jenson lending a hand too.

    2. Will be Keith discovered something? ;)

    Great grid My favourite driver is second and THE BOSS is on pole position his been in another class this weekend lets hope for the sake of competition his on a light fuel load.

    1. eh if the championship was alive and close that would be a good grid. but its not so you want a messed up grid.

      If i was Todt once the championship had been decided I’d go with the reverse grid option.

  5. Vettel did very well to be up there ahead of Webber and the Brawns

  6. oooooo it should be close depending how much vettel can keep on him maybe force him to do a mistake?

  7. So you think Jenson has already signed for McLaren?

    Do you know something we don’t??

    5. Jenson Button, McLaren-Mercedes – 1′41.892

  8. Keith, do not forget that Kovalainen will get a five-place penalty by the gearbox change.

  9. Dont the BMW F1 team performed before the year 2004? Please reply, m in the middle of the project.

  10. Ha ha!!

    It seems Keith already knew about Jenson signing for the Mclaren team before everyone did. Amazing piece of clairvoyance. Now, where else did you make typos this year Keith.
    Since, your typos seem to decide drivers’ futures, I really hope you write, Robert Kubica, Red Bull Renault.
