Nice :thumbsup:

Think the curfew (and breaking it) could become more significant given how long these cars take to repair!

Well, Lewis Hamilton thinks that Red Bull has a quick car:

A craven can be as brave as any man, when there is nothing to fear. And we all do our duty, when there is no cost to it. How easy it seems then, to walk the path of honor.

However, Vettel thinks that RB10 can't keep up with the pace of the frontrunners even if it's reliable.

Vettel and Ricciardo could get knocked out in Q1 and Hamilton would still say Red Bull has a quick car.

What about the 107%? Will it be enforced?

Didn't we have an exception for HRT during one year? I'm pretty sure this what's been happening reliability-wise warrants an exception too...

The 107% rule tends to also include times from FP1 and 2 so it's likely they'll all get a decent time in from all the sessions.

HRT failed to qualify for both the 2011 and 2012 Australian GPs due to the 107% rule.

Both allowed to race though, FIA cant afford to not have teams race. I dont agree with the whole 'using free practice' malarky. Free practice isnt about pace, Qualifying however, is about pace.
