  1. Vettel, thank you, it’s about time…

  2. Every time I see Barrichello he is being passed by someone else. Is the Williams slower on the straight?
    Are there any speedtraps?

    1. They’re not racing. :)

  3. Wow are they ever going to run that McLaren without bits attached. Check it thrice huh? An I know I shouldn’t be worried, but I really hope it’s everyone else whose missed a trick.

  4. Keith,
    Can you try to take a picture of the wheelnuts of Massa?
    Rumour is they are gold coloured.

      1. Thanks. Beautiful picture by the way.

        1. Thanks very much – I’ve got camera envy looking at some of the kit the pro photographers have with them here. Wouldn’t want to carry those huge lenses though!

  5. The more I look at that Renault the more I like it, how did they make it so small?

    The W wing is different too.

  6. Anyone know what that thing is under the VR-01’s nose (between the wheels)?
    It can be seen clearly in the first Virgin pic above.

  7. So I have a question about Pedro de la Rosa’s banner picture. The “You will never race alone, Nippon Ichi” part… I’m guessing that’s referring to Kobayashi. Anyone have any insight as to what they might mean by it?

    1. Wasn’t de la Rosa a champion of a lower formula series in Japan? I presumed the ‘Nippon Ichi’ referred to his success there.

      1. That’s what I got from that, Nippon Ichi of course means Japan’s number 1. They made a proper effort with that banner tho, not just a bed sheet with spray paint like the Alonso ones.

  8. Did you take these pictures yourself keith?

    1. Yep (see the copyright at the foot of the article).

  9. Thanks for continuing to wet my appetite with these photo’s…
