  1. Great to see a collection of photos of the cars on track.

    I absolutely love the front-side on view of the McLaren, looks so aggressive!

    ….not so much when it’s stuck in the gravel with a wheel missing.

  2. Personally I just hope Dan doesn’t bin the Redbull today :D

  3. Well on the plus side, it wasn’t an engine failure this time FA.

  4. McLaren, “FA, that new Renault unit might be a bit stronger than we are used too…take it easy.”

    1. maybe the wheels come off…

      1. Yeah, hinting that they are not used to the power of better and did not build a strong enough wheel nut to handle the new torque levels…jokes

  5. Do the cars not have to have the drivers initials any more?

  6. That Ferrari… *drool*

    @keithcollantine on the live feed, you need to scroll down like forever to see the newest comments. Shouldn’t the page update the newest comments at the top, instead of the bottom? Thanks for the feed anyway.

    1. i am unable to find the live feed.. where’s the link?

  8. Why is this not televised? F1.com needs to offer streaming of these events….hell, of everything. I’d gladly pay just to be able to get the content live or recorded.

  9. Very happy for Torro Rosso and Honda, at the moment they appear to have completed most laps without incident…
