    It looks like we have about 15 minutes until Q1 begins, and I didn't see that anyone else had made a thread about it. So here we go.

    Morning Is.

    Lucky you! Yes, I'm stuck with the "delayed" Speed guys...oh well. :)

    Not sure about everyone else but I don't mind learning the results of quali before I see them. :)

    Good morning - my thougts same as yours Clint - if you don't want to see results with the tv delay - then you shouldn't be here in the first place!!!

    That being said, I guess I need to bring up live timing - all cars on track is an oddity for Q1 - moisture on camera lens.

    Carol

    Heavy rain at far end of circuit - this could be interesting....

    Exactly! I hope this doesn't start another "bickering fest". :D

    On a more serious note...too bad for Nico.

    My thoughts exactly. Either way, nice run by Seabass!

    Guess I was away whenever the "bickering fest" took place. Too bad for Nico - they were saying they didn't send him back out because of the suspension?

    Looking good for Lewis - top seven sure are close with only .455 separating them.

    You didn't miss much. ;) I thought the posts were pretty comical.

    Interesting about Nico's suspension?

    Q3 should be a nail-biter!

    two minutes left in Q3 and Vettel not out - perhaps they figure this is the best they can do so why run any risks? Kubica hasn't set a time either - things are getting rather interesting with <1:30 - everyone scurring around - looks like Heikki may have this one. This will be one where the session is showing over but it really isn't!

    Carol

    What a shoot-out at the end - Webber on pole for a short few seconds - Heikki get's pole by 1/2 second over Webber?????

    I hear a Ferrari running outside the door - Sophia hasn't been out in a while.

    Don't know what else to say.

    Congrats Kova!

    Red Bull beats Ferrari, OK but Toro Rosso?

    Damn :(

    HK and MW 1st & 2nd...wow.

    F-cars 3rd & 9th? Why didn't Massa finish his hot lap?

    Maybe Ferrari was using a 'wet' set-up (teams can't change their set-up after the qualifications) as they expect rain tomorrow? That might explain the gap?

    Anyway, lets hope for the best tomorrow.

    Forza Ferrari.
