    Well that was a surprise. Bloody good lap by Elton, and Max.

    Hopefully they take each other out on the first corner.

    Yet again Vettel feels the need to tell the team what tactics they need to use in the last part of qualifying
    A few commentators stating that Vettel was performing at his best when he was surrounded by a team that did all the thinking for him and just let him focus on the driving
    Ferrari seem to have a great car and the team management is a long way from being the best on the pit wall

    Once again, Ferrari makes Hamilton look like a genius. The reality is that everyone improved a similar amount, apart from Ferrari. Notice that Hamilton couldn't repeat that lap time, so one perfect lap by him and Max, but Dan, Seb and Kimi went relatively backwards.

    I can't imagine the headaches the Ferrari tacticians would be having now trying to work out all the options for the race.

    Yep. Ferrari have a knack of ****ing everything up.

    Incidentally, can we please get rid of these utterly boring snooze-fest tracks?
    Singapore is even more boring than Monaco, and that’s saying something.
    I think I counted less than five genuine overtakes in the entire race. Absolute joke.

    I've booked Ferrari and St George RLFC for my funeral as pall bearers so they can let me down one final time :(

    As they say in the classics, there's always next year :p

    What a disaster, you don't give hamilton such a point advantage and expect to pull it back

    We need to win every single race to be able to win, its near impossible, maybe some harm could come to hamilton?

    How to lose with the fastest car/bike, it is a Italian thing, well done Ferrari and Ducati, you both show its possible!

    The drivers/riders must take the majority of the blame, run hot and cold

    Ferrari should have paid Dan what he wanted, and made him equal #1, another error by them.

    That's a pair of weird questions.


    Ferrari should have paid Dan what he wanted, and made him equal #1, another error by them.

    I was agreeing to this ^^^^ statement.

    For sure they where talking to him, 100%, common knowledge and all over the Italian media, Renault have coughed up $66 million over 2 years, Ferrari would not match it, he would have got a lower offer but the honor of driving with Ferrari, he chose what is best for him.

    Big money but that is what you get in F1

    I think Vettel also was not happy to have a better driver as team mate, he most likely leaned on Ferrari management to keep him out.

    Now Ferrari have a rookie thrown in the deep end, and a experienced drive who cracks under pressure

    Maybe Dan was cheap after all, waste of a seat at Ferrari

    They are going to need a much better car than now, so they can allow for turmoil

    In the end we remember who is Champion, not just race wins, the Ducati riders should have won nearly every race this year, its the best it has every been, and the best bike on the grid by some margin.

    If Marc #93 was on it, he would lap the field.....

    Ok...so no offer then?
    You're just agreeing that they should have begged him to drive for them and paid him whatever he wanted.
