Cool

Just 1 wish from the heart of a hardcore Schumi fan - LET IT RAIN ON SUNDAY

The Regenmeister has managed some really good laps in the rain hit 2nd practice session.

P5 for Petrov, not bad! Chandok stalled at the end of the pitlane. HRT needs to give a race-ready machine to Chandok and Senna.

Schumi's back after 3 years, and in style. I would like to rephrase Evolution_VIII's comment and say, "God, please give us rain on Raceday". Regenmeister's back in action.

Default Memories of 2002 Australian Grand Prix

The year was 2002 when I was living in Melbourne.Towards the beginning of February when winter was setting in,almost every corner of Melbourne was seen with F1 flags for the Grand Prix at Albert Park.
I lived very close to Albert Park on Toorak Road and driving through this street circuit(other days its a normal commuting road) was a normal thing.
One month before the grand prix the whole Albert Park changed with promos,barricages,stalls,kioks.
That race weekend was the most memorable days of my life as I practically lived on the Albert Park track watching all the pre-grand prix races,practice sessions,Qualifying, Drivers parade lap and the Final Race.
Imposting 2 most memorable pics:
- Hillram with Foster Aussie Grid Girls
- Hillram in the grand stand after the race completion and Podium ceremony (What a crowd..mainly Tifosi as Melbourne is a Ferarri fanatic city !!)

Ram Ram... Hey Ram.....!

One question, did you watch that race or were busy running some other races

Nice pics....

Last year's race saw double finish for 1-2 Brawn and 3-4 Toyota.

I am sorry, i got many confused with the timing. Thanks for enlightening me.

I know what you mean. Did the same thing at the Singapore GP for the last two years. The first live F1 race is an amazing experience.

It puzzles me how these guys have very stable cars in the wet while everyone else seems to be sliding.

Mark Webber is the only man in the world that can drive 2 cars at one time.

yeah thats his special trick for his home grand prix.. and only for the home grand prix.

So the second mark webber in that list should actually be 'Michael Schumacher". Interesting to see that Rosberg outqualified schumi again. But lets wait till the rain starts. I wouldnt speculate before that.

Smile Red-Bull running on Red-Bull

Wow! The Red-Bulls look so fast, are they running on Red-Bulls?

Alonso looks like the only challenger to the Red-Bull duo at the moment. I dont think Massa was that slower than Alonso. Maybe he was asked to settle for fifth and get to start from the cleaner side of the grid especially since he lost a position in Bahrain starting from the dirty side.

King Schumi getting closer to Rosberg all the time and even managing to beat Rosberg a couple of times in practice is good news for Schumi Fans.

Hamilton will have to do some magic to get ahead of the cars at the start else it would be a frustrating race for him.

And please no rain for tomorrow, let it be reserved for the European races. Still yet to decide who is fastest in race trim.

Yeah, right. It was team orders that made him qualify at #5.

No doubts about RedBulls being the fastest car on the grid right now. And Alonso is driving crazy, good for him.

Yet again the same positions for the Mercedes GP, I am still surprised, what happened to the last year winners, the cars are not quick enough to beat the others on the grid.

Looks like Schumi's position will help him catapult 3 places further as the race starts The right corner is a bottleneck, so being in 7th position should help go up a few places.
