Penalty for Glock for holding up Webber, why no penalty for Kimi for holding up Kubica :huh: , that was pretty obvious

Yes but at that lap Kubica both clocked a fastest time of his own and had a plenty of time to get another lap. It's an alternative thinking of stewards. In the same way, Honda’s Jenson Button, Force India’s Giancarlo Fisichella, Williams’ Nico Rosberg and Glock’s Toyota team mate Jarno Trulli were also reprimanded, but not penalised, by the stewards for setting their fastest laps under yellow flags. I think sanctions are given conditionally.

Heared that to for the drivers you named, but I never read the name of raikkkonen, that's why I found it so strange, so Raikkonen got reprimanded as well? :blink:

I am a big Red Bull fan, although I'd rather see Vettel and Bourdais in "our" cars... But I bet we're gonna be the 4th power this year, maybe with some podiums... Flag:##

As far as I know, no. But when we think of Kubica's condition as I explained, stewards might have thought that this situation didn't create any disadvantages for Kubica, just like in 2007, while Hamilton was impeding Raikkonen who was on his hot lap, which was much worst case than this. Remember?

Doesn't look too good for Alonso, I had at least hoped that he would make it into Q3 even if the car is a dog. :sad: :sad: :sad:

Kubica was fantastic, I really hope he does well in the race too.

I think Massa might be a bit heavier than the BMW:s.

Really bad luck for Kimi, but not to worry too much, at least he has a car that allows him to fight in the race - unlike Alonso - so don't count him out yet. He's won races from worse grid positions than 15! :thumbsup:

Piquet...? I don't really know what to say... :blink:

The start tonight will be a thriller!!! :cheezy:

Oh and I forgot Vettel, that guy is REALLY good and is wiping the floor with his teammate.

I haven't seen any track action yet. Has there really been more sliding as a result of no traction control?

If Kubica win, he would become the first polish to win a formula one GP

But I hope Kimi will be on the podium
