  1. Ricciardo has his work cut out for him. He likes this track see how he goes good luck :)

  2. Shame Kimi won’t be allowed to fight for the win or even 2nd ;)

    1. He will if he drives fast enough. But he has been too slow all season so even if he is fast tomorrow it will be perfectly acceptable for ferrari to do team orders… kimi has lost the opportunity to be a championship contender. Going by form, vettel will beat him with or without team orders

    2. Of course Kimi will come second….behind Vettel after Hamilton spins out of the race. ;)

    Interesting the difference the rain made the track. Just look at the difference between Massa who we thought was slow and Stroll.

    Massa: 1:31.482 – Stroll: 1:42.573

    A difference of over 11 seconds between 15th and 16th place. I don’t think Stroll is actually that much slower than Massa!

  4. Wow, Hulkenberg. On a track with at half-mile straight in a Renault.

  5. I hope the start is clean. So much of F1 is about the start, overtaking amongst the leading teams vs the up and coming teams sometimes results in a barrage of antics that look like bumper cars not the best driver’s in the world! Fortunately, this track has a few areas ripe for overtaking… I hope Riccardo does a nice job working through the field from the back spot on the grid.
