i think everybody will go on 2 stop; 1 stop is simply non sense; if you think about if to make a stop this year is let say 4 sec plus in and out of the pit is total 18 19 sec, if your tyres are not performing at let say 1.0 or 1.5 sec slower per lap and growing; you can recover the stop in about 12 to 13 laps; and in a race of 49 laps at this condition 2 stop make more sense.

we will see. I simply don't think that 12 team on the grid as the same tyre wear; hence some of them will have to stop twice

Sutil was the only one of the Q3 runners to use the medium compound, everyone else on supersoft.

Good performance by Vettel today, we'll see how the Red Bull treats its tyres in the race.

Hmmm... Then Sutil might be in a better position than his Qualifying position might suggest. :)

Q: Michael, you've qualified 7th, do you find that frustrating?

MSC: No, I've done it on purpose, to remind people that I'm 7 times WDC. Besides, I started feeling pain in my neck when they told me I've qualified 7th, so I don't know if I'll be able to race whole season.

Funny comments from Schumacher. And about Sutil, he might just be in the hotseat with those hard tires...
Requiescat in pace, Jules Bianchi
