      At least Lewis did the fastest lap but wow Felipe Massa what is going on with him his best lap was 1.1 seconds off the fastest lap maybe he’s doing all this so that he can be fired up in Turkey

      1. massas start of any season is poor he simply says he doenst like the tracks

      2. and webber could have been more than a sec faster than he not a red bull fan but i think they were reving their renault on safety mode and saving tyres if you watch crefully onboard shots you see that they arent pushing mutch of that car they are running a lot of wing and reving safely on the race

      3. One word: Traffic.

    2. I’ve been defending Felipe recently; he’s had car/set up issues but even so he’s well off where I thought he would be. I thought this track might turn things around a bit. Clearly not.

      1. Well at least we now the answer to his problems. He just needs a damaged front wing.

        1. Unfortunately, I can’t get to Monte Carlo to sabotage it next week

        2. Haha, Rob Smedley will go and stamp on the wing before every race now. He gets team-radio quote of the day, if not the year…

          1. an last year, mans on a role

          2. This year has been great for team radios. First Alonso’s “I don’t wasn’t to know” and now this! makes for some great fun.

    3. At least Hamilton got fastest lap as consolation. Given his speed, he’s acquired far less than you might think he should have over his career. Of course, for two years he was racing Kimi “fastest lap” Raikkonen. If I’m right, today’s was only his 5th, and the first time he’s had two in a row.

      1. I think he’s genuinley not interested, he got them all the time in GP2, when they were worth points.

        Might be copying Senna. Who didn’t get that many as a proportion either, despite his pole count.

    4. Keith, can we get the ‘number of laps within a percentage of their best’ feature again?

      1. I’ll try to add it back in soon.

        1. That sounds good, thanks.

    5. Keith has recently put across some very strong arguments for allowing complete pit stop freedom i.e. no mandatory stops. I think what you are saying here is that we should have two stops mandatory.

      Both arguments are striving to increase overtaking, but whereas a 2 stop mandatory race could allow greater opportunities to overtake during a pit stop, the freedom offered by no mandatory stops should increase the chance of overtaking on the track.

      As the race this afternoon demonstrated the ability for cars to pass on track (e.g. Button vs Schumacher, Kobayashi vs Petrov) brings us to an odd crossroad situation.

      Should we pursue more overtaking during pit stops, by forcing numerous stops, or should we allow complete strategic freedom and hope that when cars do meet on track the strategy difference is enouhg to negate the fact that under normal circumstances overtaking is incredibly difficult?

      Personally I would prefer all overtaking to be done on-track, wheel to wheel. At this current moment however, I can see the immediate benefit of a mandatory 2-stop strategy, as long as this is reconsidered at the end of the season.

    6. Massa is slower than both Petrov and Kubika!!

      Either he has lost a lot of speed or the Renault is not as slow as everyone thinks it is.

      I think, the answer is somewhere in between the 2. But clearly, Massa needs to up his speed. Without Smedley’s hand-holding he would be nowhere this season.

      1. possibly what happened, is that when all the fuel burnt off, his damaged wing an loss of downforce points prevented him from putting in a good lap, or pushing incase of making it worse.

        Damaged front wings probably also increase tyre ware

    7. massa is finding the car being developed away from him, more towards alonso. i jus can’t understand how he could set in a faster lap in qualifying than in free practice!!

      massa must work very closely with his engineers and keep focusing on his qualifying pace.

      1. I really do not think that Ferrari are just developing the car to Fernando’s liking, although by mid season, if Felipe remains slow, they would support him for the WDC.
        I just dont think Felipe can set a car up through a weekend as well as Fernando can.

    8. Why was Lewis pushing the car that much?… there was no reason at all for setting the fastest 2 laps of the race, a lot faster than the previous FLs…

      He was miles behind Webber on lap 59 and 60… he wasn’t going to win

      He needs to calm down a bit… pushing hard the whole race long is not worth it if you’re challenging no one…

      1. See fastest laps #4/5. Alonso was catching up after Vettel’s problem.

        1. he was still quite far behind… with 6 laps to go…

      2. I remember Brundle commenting at the time that he thought Hamilton and McLaren might have decided to put some pressure on Webber in case he had the same problem as Vettel.

      Interesting to see the amount of ‘Mark Webber’s up near the top in comparison with Vettel, on the top 50 fastest laps.

    10. I think the redbulls could have gone much faster. What seems more indicative is Mclaren are now ahead of Ferrari.
      Merc has gone no where, perhaps even further behind.

    11. “Ferrari to investigate Felipe Massa’s performance”
      They make it sound like he’s up on criminal charges :P
