And then DC was like 12th? And proved why he's retiring. But still, yes, Red Bull is gradually taking over the world!!


As for Hamilton. I wonder if it was him or his engineer, or a combination of the both, who massively n00bed out on tyre selection.


EDIT: And whoever predicted a Suzuka style grid, that I personally didn't think would happen: congrats to you!! 1 Ferrari, 1 Mac and 1 red car in the top 10!! Awesome. Fisi in 12th! Awesome. The three champ contenders, 6th, 14th and 15th!! Awesome.

Apart from Fisi's absence the back of the grid looks fairly usual. Kudos to Fisi! He even pwned Ham and Rai..

hamilton went out in q2 not only because of wrong tyre selection. He was not quick enough. Massa made it into q3 with a lap in same time when lewis was out.

This will be a really nice race... :)

With this grid I just wish changing conditions during the race...

What in hell was McLaren thinking keeping Lewis on boxes when everyone were doing their times?... This was a team mistake. In these conditions you should be in track the whole time...

Considering that piquet is behind Lewis, probably Lewis' race will finish in the first corner... :p

Congratulations to Vettel!! :thumbsup: and also for the others that can show now how good they are...

True indeed. Massa uncharacteristically kept his head and was the tits in the wet. Good job Felipe! :D

They both decided. N00bs. He has to realise to do what everyone else does and not take risks when he is in this position. If its wet tomorrow like this, there will be a SC start. who knows, another fuji? a fuel load to get through the race maybe? I think Massa has gone for a one stop in the hope of rain and Kimi and Lewis will decide later.

Yep poor team decision, maybe almost ridiculous faith/arrogance to go on inters. The team put too much faith in his wet-weather ability, like they did in Shanghai last year, and at the Nurburgring before that (with their premature switch to dries).

what an utterly stupid decision by Lewis and McLaren. they didnt even deserve P15 for that stupidity.

good luck to Massa for using his brain.
