Felt sad for the Iceman not making it to the Q3 for no fault of his.

Advantage being Schumi starts off tomorrow with all set of FRESH tyres and DRS Working
pavan, putting up the link may invite trouble,FIA snoops web traffic looking for streamers and take them down whenever possible.Lots of such sites have shutdown due to unwanted attention.
Anyway Lotus are a big zero when coming to strategy.The tyres in my opinion are a joke rarely rewarding quality drives and making it more of a luck game. They should last a bit 5-6 laps more. Miss the 2005 season when i think car performance was at the best. Bernie and his clowns should stop messing with the game.

Isn't it a bit childish on Bernie's part to deny Force India any TV time during qualifying?

I wonder how much control does Bernie have on the broadcasters. ESPN/Star/BSkyB are no babes in the wood. See ESPN-HD did not have live coverage of the qualifying.

Also,let us face it Force India are mid field runners and not a glamour team.

The politics does make me sad. I wish this race was not happening.

Force india skipped fp2 because of valid reasons -
The Silverstone-based team is considering withdrawing from second free practice in Bahrain so its personnel can return to their hotels early - to avoid the possibility of trouble on the journey home.
Four members of its staff were caught up in a clash between protestors and police on Wednesday night with a Molotov cocktail landing near their car. That incident has resulted in two team members returning home because they no longer wished to stay in Bahrain.

I wonder why FI was keen on leaving the track early while all other teams had no issues including Sauber who also were witness to some incidents before Free practice?

It puts the organizers in bad light when the media are waiting like vultures to feed on any scrap they get from Bahrain.

Also if anything, F1 in Bahrain has actually made the world turn up and notice the happenings in the country. It has given them more exposure.

This is a sporting event and mustn't be used as a pawn in a political turmoil.

My take is that if people of the country dont want a GP to be held just scrap it.Imagine if similar situation was there in india.Think bahrain will be off the list from next year for a long time.

Didn't the same happen in India too? Noida Farmers protesting, remember? Though it was not as big as the revolution in Bahrain.

Regarding prediction for today's race, I expect Vettel, Hamilton or Button as winner. Jenson Button is always favorite to win due to his great tyre management and superb strategy but not so favorite due to his talent to have bad luck. With Seb Vettel on pole, we might see a repeat of last year. Pole to victory!

Mark my words. Lotus will work hard to make sure Raikkonen finishes outside points

Another brilliant race!

4 races, 4 winner and from 4 different teams, haven't seen a season like this.

Nice to see the Iceman pack in the thick of the action.
Waiting to see the Ferrabuer in action in the Barcelona race.

What a fantastic race

Kimi was charging so well, just wished he would take it away from Vettel, anyways.. Vettel had a very good race.

Great race from Schumi to take 10th place after being on the back of the grid, he should certainly take pole next race to take his maiden victory.

Its good to see the iceman back That was a close race. The Lotus cars really surprised me with their pace. Lotus should have pitted Kimi atleast a lap earlier than Vettel and tried to undercut the redbull. Their pit stops were a little slow as well.

Mclarens were a big disappointment. Did not really expect them to fight with the Ferrari's. Looking forward to the Mugello test and hope Ferrari can make some major improvements.

Another great race and good to see Kimi back on the podium.

And something seriously wrong with Mclaren’s pitstop job. It was Button who suffered in the last race, and this time it was Hamilton’s turn, that too twice!

I think now you gotta do something called eat your own words

McLarens either lack money to fix the guy at tail end of car or they are stupid. LH lost a tonne of time, 21 secs in pits doing nothing. I feel he is going to speak publicly about it. Third time that he has suffered in 4 races.
