    Santtu putting an anti-LH spin on things, quelle surprise

    I don't think people, other than those putting up a lot of cash into any team that isn't Mercedes, have the right to complain too much, I think last year had some fantastic races (Bahrain?). Let's hope for some thunderstorms and that things get a bit cray cray this weekend. Some DNFs for exciting reasons rather than reliability on the 1st lap.

    This weekend's GP (FPs, Qualifying and the race) is one of the few that the BBC has the right to broadcast UK people, so don't forget to tune in

    Also, make your guess on whether Maldonado will crash, if he does, what lap?

    Like Damon hill said i think Rosberg did all he could do last year to beat Hamilton but couldn't. And according to him it will be the same this year so read into that what you will. I do believe the gap is a lot smaller than it was with Vettel and Webber but there is still certanly a gap between Rosberg and Hamilton.

    There was a couple championships won at the last race but i truly believe Vettel had the car under him to win with ease. He imo always seemed to just control the distance he needed to and just finish the race.

    Martin Brundle on Twitter: Interesting development in what already seemed like a fairly suspicious crash by Alonso.

    What happened and why aren't they telling the truth?

    Dun dun dunnnn.

    Probably because they don't want the FIA to know their car is dangerously slow and just plain dangerous.

    NFSW summary of qualifying:


    Who's waking up early (not that early) for the race then? Sepang can often throw some spanners into the mix as we saw in qualifying with the weather, so I'm hoping it won't be as dull as australia.

    I'm getting up to watch it. Not missed a race live for years.

    IMO the only reason Vettel got that close was because Rosberg blocked Hamilton on his penultimate lap then Hamilton slowed Rosberg down to say thanks on both of their final laps and because his tyres had gone.

    As much as I never liked Vettel winning, it's nice to see another team giving Mercedes a run for their money, and I'm secretly glad its Ferrari, even if Alonso is no longer there...

    Alonso seems to have a nack for going to teams when they're at their worst

    Button broke down in FP2, the car is still broke so no Qualifying for Button in Canada.

    #progress #mclarenprogress #hondapowerftw #rondennisisbae

    Sigh. Can't wait to hear through various media outlets how Button and Alonso are still talking about progress. I'm more than willing to be proven wrong and i want them to do well but ffs stop talking about progress until you get the friggin results. The amount of bs PR that's come out of Mclaren Honda this season is infuriating.

    20th to 13th is progress though. Maybe not as much as we'd like but Honda employees aren't magic.

    Alonso has retired from the previous 3 races, what's the point in making him faster if he can only go half the race? Did honda think they were signing up for Formula E? he can't jump out at the half way point and hop into a second car. I simply refuse to acknowledge this underlying progress while they're still having such large issues, I think this is the first weekend I've seen them start to understand this too. However to start coming out on the defensive and say that people are pushing them down is a bit weird, they've got a huge fanbase, they've got insane financial backing, they're part of that crappy elitist 'F1 Strategy Group', mentioning that people are wanting them to fail is absolutely ridiculous. I want them to do well, I'm only critical because I'm a big fan of McLaren.

    I'm not asking for Honda Employees to perform a miracle or do some Magic as you inferred, I'm simply asking them to do what I know is possible, because errrr every other constructor is managing to do it. Renault have had their fair share of problems but they're still not as bad as Honda.

    On a related note, i'll leave this here:

    About Alonso's retiring: I think he's just given up in few of the races. He's fighting against windmills for as long as he's entertained and then retires from the race when he's had enough and enjoys his massive paycheck. Why else would he refuse to save fuel when the team tells him to

    I think they're making the cars louder again starting next year, or maybe the year after.

    Can't wait for the new aero rules. It will be nice seeing the lap records being broken again.

    As much as I'd hate to see a US team dominate the sport, I do hope HaasF1's entry into F1 can stir something interesting up. Or perhaps any other new team in 2016, I think they said there's space for one more? A new team with William's kind of pace would spice things up.

    What a great start and mid section of the race. I really was not seeing the start unfolding that way at all.

    Will it rain and what will happen if it does? Please don't say rain.

    Alonso in 11th place and the Marussias in 12th and 13th. Could Marussia or McLaren score some surprise points today?
