Practice times are just a farce.

Qualifying is what matters

What a Start!!Hamilton was superb.A Splendid effort from Kubica!!

Think the drivers are struggling with out the Traction Control.Even,Hamilton @ one of the turns.

Ferrari is unreliable. That's bad omen for Raikkonen.

Ahh, what a start to the season! Looking at the way the lap times are dropping through Q1 to Q3 the boys were sure missing the traction control. I guess this is going to be quite an incident filled race.

And what a debut for Force India. They are right at the tail of the world champion. Way to go!

Missed the Qualifying so I dont know what happened to Kimi. Not a good qualifying session for the Reds. Lets see what happens in the race tomorrow. Great effort by Robert in P2 and Heiki is right on the tail of his team mate from race one itself.

Should be an exciting start to race tomorrow with the cars running without any electronic aids

Good to see BMW having the pace to challenge Ferrari and McLarens. Season is going to be interesting. At the same time its surprising to see Alonso struggling to make it to Q3.

Ferrari did not get the start what they wanted

Hope kimi gets that" Michel magic" touch tomorrow and finishes first

Any way good job Robert. Somehow i have this feel that BMW will be strong this season.

Have to say, didnt expect BMW to be up there right away, but it could be tactical. We will have to wait and see.

Hamilton is ace. If he can hold it together, the race is his for the taking. Hoping for a running-through-the-field drive from Kimi but just looking at the names ahead of him, it is going to be a challenge.

The Ferrari's have always struggled in single lap runs.Its the race pace that they are very good at.Massa will have a good chance 2morrow.As for Kimi podium will be the max he can achieve under normal circumstances.

I think there is good chance of at least one safety car period, considering the circuit nature and the new rules regarding TC control. Kimi with a heavily fueled car can take advantage of that.

I thought Kimi had left his back luck behind after winning the Championship last year.

Like MaserQ said, it's going to be tough moving up the field with so many good cars/drivers ahead of him on the grid.

Knowing Kimi, he is still going to try his best to pick up some points.

It should make for some interesting driving.

I'm particularly looking forward to Hamilton lapping Alonso.Will Alonso let him pass without a fight or will the blue flag have to come out? That should be fun to watch!
