no offense, but a lock-up doesn't mean you lose time :O

umm yes it does if it pushes you wide.

yes: if!! But when you don't see the driver steer again, then you don't lose time, Hamilton most of the time doesn't lose time with it

fine, if you want me to say it was an ok lap from Hamilton, I will. You can lose time from a lock-up if you go wide (like fuji) but I guess he didn't go wide on that lap. Anyway he's 5th now.

McLaren is obviously struggling, while Massa confirms his pace with a 1:12.3, McLaren are struggling with several tenths off Massa's time... Well...

Rain falling more.

Lewis main reliability worry is the gearbox (this is its 3rd race) rather than the engine , this explains why he has done fewer P laps today

Raikkonen is around Hamilton's pace. I say it's just Massa's pace that makes the others look bad. But Trulli and Vettel are up there with Rosberg and Nakajima.

Raikkonen now 3rd, Webber 4th...maybe McLaren is slower.

Thats odd because you can use another engine and gearbox on a Friday.

Lewis' lock-up, tbh I was waiting for that, kind of a lot of pressure on that lap.
