    I hate SPEED's coverage of Qualifying 2... they start with your time from the previous day... so, you can't tell who's doing what TODAY...

    Even the Formula1.com site makes this difficult to see... they don't give the split times like they used to, but rather give cumulative times at the end of each split... leaving you to do a lot of math. Stupid!

    Its funny, I don't think the announcers realize this... they often say funny things like "a great first segment"... even if they had a poor one but just not so bad as to completely negate their lead from the prior day. Or "wow, lost a lot in that last segment" as it goes yellow instead of green... as if they screwed up the last segment only... but in fact, they may have blown 90% of the prior day advantage with a horrible first segment, but it would still show green.

    The only way the first segment won't be green on every driver is if the driver goes soooo much slower in the first segment that he completely negates his total laptime advantage from the previous day.

    Stupido,
