Well there was the small matter of going out to work at 05:00.

But nce again Grosjean seems yo be racking up the penalties. Can't remember the last time I say the 10 second stop-go penalty used. What's that about 8 incidnets out of 14 races he's been in this year?

Re: F1 2012 Championship Thread

lol'ed at the latest Hamilton silliness reported today. Apparently, he was on twitter and complained that Jenson unfollowed him and started whinging that it wasn't very team-like, and he still considered Jenson a team-mate until the end of the year, etc, etc, etc.

Turns out Jenson never bothered following him in the first place.

Re: F1 2012 Championship Thread

Yes but who with?

Maldonado seems to have calmed down a bit, then there are the two Force India drivers Di Resta and Hulkenberg, or even Massa. Unless they go for another rookie. Which wouldn't be a good idea. I think Lotus needs a somewhat experienced driver who can actually bring the car home. Even a non scoring finish can count at the end of the season when it comes to money.

I think they should go for one of the Force India drivers, as I think Massa has done enough to keep his seat for 2013.

Di Resta has impressed me. He's got potential, I think. Another option for Lotus might be Ricciardo (I don't know what his current contract status is). They both seem to be performing a bit above their respective cars' expected level.

And it's a Red Bull front row, though perhaps not the way they would want it. So assuming they get away in order how many laps do you think it'll be before Webber gets the call to let Vettel past?

Since when has Webber ever not fucked up a start anyway?

They'll probably just give his car a loose clutch to make sure

Nah, they'll just have the usual unluanch control device fitted to the car, or KERS will suffer a failure etc...

What a shocker, Vettel gets a better start than Webber & is opening out a lead already. That'll be that, then. I needn't have bothered...

The typical Vettel-walks-it-from-the-start-without-having-to-actually-*race* thing we all got so bored with last year...

"Getting knocked off the track by Kobayashi is JB's own fault for not qualifying further up the grid"? Oh, fuck *OFF* Eddie, you fucking twat
