What happened to Kimi?.. we was doing good times during the first hour... then nothing.
Ok... and the winner is: Coulthard (first crash...smooth anyway). Did you see how the nose cone hit the floor when they lift the car?... David was not happy at all.
I didn't see a single flag.... even when there were cars that had run wide...
I guess we can expect a better second Practice... What do you say? Can somebody get a time under 1:40:000??

Probably. Those times seemed pretty slow still. I heard that they're expecting something like 1:37. I don't know if it's going to be that much faster during the weekend but definitely under 1:40.

they were too cautious, especially at the end of the back straight. they need to push harder than they were. i think one driver will do that and then the rest will follow

The Red Bulls have sucked so far.19th and 20th and Coulthard either broke down or spun.

Well Hamilton was brave there. But then again, he had four (count them, four!) moments going into the hairpin at the end of the back straight, varying from oversteer to the edge of the track (twice) oversteer and running wide over the white line (once) and swapping ends (once). So maybe that is not the place to push.
