It would be an absolute farce if Fernando gets to keep his P1.Had he slowed down to those yellow flags when Grosjean spun out,he wouldnt have even made into Q3
Diresta was heard complaining and he has every right to crib

A really nice qualifying today

Nice to see Schumacher in the Top 3, and Alonso going forward from where he ended last race.

Looking forward to tomorrows race..

I think Mercedes messed up the strategy for Schumi...
If he would have gone out on the inters at the start of the Q3, he would have been in pole! Still Q3 is a great position to start.
The rainmaster hasn't lost his touch

This year Schumi has been really on the pace! He has had so much bad luck, I hope it all changes from now. Really hope the elusive 92nd win should come in this year

Fingers crossed for tomorrow.
Go, Schumi go!

Yes they aired live. Not just two practice sessions. I think by now they wouldve put up the qualifying sessions too.
Regards.

Edit: yes all the sessions are now available for download from the iPlayer now.

Yellow flags or not, that Ferrari which was quite an handful to drive back in OZ is the best car on the grid. Ferrari has done an awesome job!

Is Alonso making these gestures to Charlie?

Lewis inspecting the Pirelli on Webber's car, he was checking Alonso's car too!

This race has all the makings of an entertainer! Alonso as usual, seems to thrive in changeable conditions. And old man Schumy got to showcase some of his timeless rain wizardry. Raikkonen and Hamilton will fancy having a crack at the start as well. This is going to be fun...I just pray we get a full race!

Not sure whose mistake it is, but Maldonado got involved in another collision just now – got himself a punctured tyre, and took out Sergio Perez!

Brilliant start to the British GP. A very fine set of overtaking moves from many drivers.

Loved the tango between Alonso and Hamilton. Great drive by great drivers, RESPECT!
