UBS Chinese Grand Prix

Post by phil1993 » 06 Apr 2012, 09:19

Chinese Grand Prix 2012
Round 3 of 20

DRS will probably be on the excessively long back straight.

Onboard lap - Seb Vettel's 2011 pole


Lewis Hamilton is presumably the favourite, having won here twice (the only one to do so) and he did it last year.

Don't forget the Prediction Competition.

Lots of questions still to be answered, we might finally (hopefully) have a normal race.

Also, it's live on the BBC. Yay.

I think this is rather hard. McLarens and Red Bulls will certainly be strong. But Lotus are strong, too. And Mercedes think they have solved their tyre-warming issue. Who knows... I'll go with Button, though!

I think Sauber and Ferrari will make RBR job much harder... :)

Well, it'd be nice to see where everyone really stands. Just for a bit of clarity. Bahrain will probably be cancelled, so if China is another wet race then we'll have to wait until May 13th before we see a normal race! :lol:

As a Ferrari fan... I don't really want to see normal races! :D

Ferrari has some minor upgrades for the race. Fry says the team is still 0.8s/lap off the pace in the dry.

Single DRS zone for China. Detection between T12 and T13. Activation halfway down the straight.

I know, but I am not too optimistic about it :P

I voted for Kimi, but if rain, Jenson has a good shot, the McLarens are running well so far, and we all know he is a demon in changing conditions!

I hope Lewis can finally get his first win in 2012. He doesn't have to start from pole in my opinion :p
