He will be.

He'll be worse.

Anyway, promising times by Kovalainen.

People around here are quite impressed with Force India and not at all with Ferrari. Let's see how the things in Australia look like, but that's the feeling around right now.

Media centre:

This is where I'm sitting, with the guys of Auto, Motor und Sport, Speedweek, Blick, Turun Sanomat and Bild:

I swear, it was a pure coincidence that I ended up sitting with all the German speaking clicke :blink:

Autosport guys are in the first pic on the right I think, is that Heikki Kulta in the second pic?

Media centre looks like it's in a pretty sweet place there.

Can you see the cars on track Mar? I see a TV coverage, just a fixed camera or what?

Yep, he is sitting on my right.

The red headed guy is from speedweek.de, the ones a bit to the right (opposite to Kulta) are Michael Schmidt and Tobias Grüner (from Auto, Motor und Sport) and the blond girl is from Bild. Just opposite me is sitting Roger Benoit (the one from Blick), but he is not in the picture because he was interviewing Schumacher at the moment.

I can see some parts of the circuit from the windows and the monitors continuosly change between some fixed cameras at different points of the circuit. When there is a red flag, they search which is the one who can show better what's going on, and then they only show that one

Yep, the guy of Bild (he is not in the picture) asked me for the information and he sent me hush-hush the news they were writing about Sutil. They have published it 5 minutes ago and now I have the permit to write it. Iit will have to wait a bit, though, I'm going with Michal Respond to sniff around for a bit (and steal some food) right now
