At least we have one of the fastest drivers down the grid a bit to spice it up

Just couldn't get together a clean lap I suppose. Although he abandoned a reasonably good lap in the beginning to come back to pitlane. We might get to see some overtaking either way.

It's getting darker at Melbourne... Most teams will come out early because rain is expected soon...

Every single driver had a better Q2 time than Q1.. Except Hamilton (and Rosberg, but the dis exactly the same time in both Q1 and Q2)

Because Q2 ended. Look at the end of Q1, there are 10 mins of silence after the session had ended

I take it back, im just being an arse

Seb still set a 33.1 in the third sector despite cool track temps and getting out of shape towards the end of lap... I wonder how much RBR ride height adjustment is really helping them
