Same two channels as per Tata Sky app. You better get these channels.

I think he was saving his super softs for some reason. He seemed to have the most improvement from mediums to super softs (as evident by Q1). May be its got to do with their race strategy,

Maurice Hamilton tweets that Kimi said he made a mistake and then decided to abort the lap

Should be an interesting start tom. Lewis could do what Seb did to him at Spa.
It is a short run to T1 and then a long run to T3. Lewis can get behind Seb, save some KERS and slipstream going into T3.

Both Lotus' are about 10km/hr down on top speed, this will hamper their overtaking chances.

Great to see the Saubers up there.

Apparently he made a mistake on the flying lap and didn't have another new set of super-soft tyres to do another.

1st lap skirmish gives Vettel a 2s lead at the end of the 1st lap!
No TCS mod involved here
While the rest of the field got tangled with each other around the narrow turns, SV found an open track to stomp off into the distance.
Will anyone catch him today - barring mechanical trouble?

I hope someone does.

Lap 28,29: Firework on Rosbergs Mercedes and Hamilton going "When are you going to call me in? These tyres are ******!" Ablsoute frustration for him.
Two stop strategy not working out for Mercedes.

But Paul Di Resta is having a worse day with his 4th consecutive DNF. Looks like Driver Error (Catching the kerbs).

Sergio just lost his front right tyre. Complete Deflation and tyre delamination

Puncture on the Out lap for Webber. Comes back into the pitstop again one lap later.

Safety Car.
Vettel's got to do it all over again.
Excitement from failures.

Its chaos out there! First time I am seeing a truck leading the cars on the track in between the race.

Poor Mark. I feel very sorry for him. He was destined for a podium today.

Edit:
Its a brilliant race going on behind Vettel now. Very GP2 indeed. Hulk is going awesome. Shame if he doesn't get a drive next year.

Still a few laps to go but - Nico Hulkenberg - driver of the day for me!

No challenge at the front as usual. WDC should be over by the time Indian GP is over.

Pretty exciting there in the end with Hulkenberg, Hamilton and Alonso. Good job Hulkenberg.

Another controlled win for Vettel. Always able to pull a gap and then hold on to it. Rotten luck for Webber.

Kimi was helped by the SC, but I thought the move on Grosjean was quite good, until I heard him saying this at the PC "He made a mistake in the 2nd last corner and I knew there was a yellow flag after the first turn, so he can't take me with the DRS". Respect for the thinking that went into that overtake Grosjean would have certainly finished ahead of Kimi without the first SC, so bad luck for him (compared to Kimi).

I think Mercedes made a mistake with Hamilton's 2nd pit-stop (too late), but if he had made an earlier stop, he might have had to stop a 3rd time, so I guess they had a difficult decision to make. Bad luck for Nico.

I don't know if Alonso picked up a problem after the tangle with Massa in the 1st lap, maybe that's why he was off-color today. I think his race was decided by the slow first stint on the super-softs.

There was a report that he had cracked his front wing in Q2, but the team did not detect it until after Q3. It might have lead to the mistake he made in Q3.

Well, that's it for this WDC. That makes it 4 title championships for Vettel in a row.

Honestly, I don't see how any other team can even throw some sort of challenge to RBR.
The one chink in their armor, top speed, has been closed off really well. For this season, RB9 is as close to perfect as it can be, with Vettel at its helm. This race provided a final conclusive proof of that.

Coming to the race itself, pretty ordinary for me. It is really sad for Webber though, so much talent and he constantly runs into bad luck. Sterling drive from Hulkenberg! Keeping a whole bunch of World Champions at bay certainly wouldn't have been an easy job. I sincerely wish he gets a good car in the coming seasons. Typical race day for Mercedes, great in qualifying and terrible race pace. Hope they get their tire wear issues sorted out soon. Not much from the Ferrari's & McLaren's this time round. Hope Jenson can do something in Suzuka.

Business as usual for Sebastian Vettel. No one was even close to challenging him. Total domination! The WDC is going to be wrapped up very soon now.
Battles down the order were a delight to watch. Full marks to Hulkenberg for showing a lot of spirit and character. He was brilliant in defending.
Got to feel for Mark Webber. He has been good in the past 2 races but unable to finish due to rotten luck. Just five races remaining now. Hope he goes out on a high.
The organisers need a rap on their knuckles. What the hell was that Jeep doing on the track before the safety car slowed down the racers?
