They're putting some white stuff on the track now. Kubica said to his engineer that he won't be going there to clean it. :p

Is it me, or are those Force India sidepod-fences flexing rather a lot?

I love how all the drivers are taking a more inside line through Stowe to avoid the cement, except Hamilton, who ploughed through it all (inexperience or apathy?)

And is it me, or is Massa balding?
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Kovalainen was doing a nice lap, but some (Force India I presume) was messing around in the final sector so Heikki had to slow down.

Yeah, Fisico had a long trip to the gravel, so Heikki slowed down. it would have been a 1:19, but then he slowed down some more to get the optimum exit from the final corner.

The gap between Ferrari/Mclaren and the rest is tooooooo big.... :-( ...

Why would he receive any penalty? They have enough time to fix his car for tomorrow I presume.

Test and reserve driver Christian Klien takes one look at Kubica's facial expression, and decides that now would be an excellent time to take off his headset and move somewhere else.
