Agree, but you can never count Alonso out in Spain...

Phil Flops Again

So Massa is behind both the STR Ferraris and the Sauber Ferraris as well as Fred.

Awful.

I can see that with Lotus as the next fave to possibly take this. Their long runs have been impressive.

Good job by hammy with no gas left(?). Lotus well positioned n I still think kimis gonna take it.

Massa clueless-yet again.....

Isn't a car required to make it back to the pits? If it broke it is one thing, running out of fuel is another....

I was hoping for that aswell but overall it was a very exciting qualifying session. Lewis is known to have great launches and that one "balls to the walls" qualifying lap but what if Maldonado gets the jump and leads into turn 1? Will he be able to maintain it and distance himself from the pack securing a 'back in the lead' place after the first round of pit stops?

Nothing would please me more than to see Williams win again. Romain and Kimi imo will be a serious threat for either a win or podium.

Overall this is a great weekend for racing with F1, the Continental series, ALMS and Grand Am. Quick question though it was mentioned that Conor Daly would be racing in GP3 this morning on ESPN2 and I have ESPN2 but it is not on, could they have meant ESPN3?

Massa is a lost case, he's a nice guy but that will not bring the results, time/data is being wasted

Wouldn't be the first time Hamilton ran out of fuel after taking pole...

If temperatures are indeed a couple degrees cooler tomorrow, Hamilton will win and Mercedes will pick up a lot of positions. If not, I could see any of the Renault powered cars doing well. Still very undecided about the Ferrari as Alonso may have just pulled a hat trick for qualifying.

I would not be so bold as to say Hamilton WILL WIN (if he does I'm cool with that) and with his driving style the cooler temps will play into his favor imo. Your could very well be right about Alonso simply because we know he can nurse his tires while still turning competative laps.

Yep who knows what the weather will bring, I am very excited about this race.

Poor ol' Phil;

Quote:
"I had traffic. I was on my lap and there were many cars going slow on their out-laps," he said. "I had to completely change the braking positions, so I lost four tenths or half a second for sure because of this. It's a shame. Looking at how competitive qualifying was, it's a lot of positions."
I replayed qualy on the timing app, and he's not BS'ing - He was held up terribly in a couple of spots.

Hopefully he's got plenty of tires left and can move forward tomorrow.

I'm a little surprised they're aren't already howls from the RBR and Mclaren fans for their #2 guys to be fired! They were both horrible too - "Put Perez/Kobycrashy/flavor of the week in the car......"

Cheers,
Ian

Absolutely amazing for Maldonado to qualify on pole after being one of the most dreadful drivers I've ever seen last year.

It was kinda obvious what their "technical problem" was...
it's a shame since they might have set the best time even without "cheating".
