Good start from Mr Button and his new nose - keep it up lad!

BTW - just seen highlights from the famous Arnoux/Villeneuve battle at the French Grand Prix in 1979. Its absolutely amazing!! The state of the Dijon track (and the "interesting" run-off areas) is bad enough, but having a load of people on the main straight while the race is still going on?? Simply Wow

I hadn't heard that - although I think Force India have had to pay over £600k to Caterham for some design infringement or something....

I heard on the radio that just before the Bahrain race the Force India Mechanics were demanding to be sent home because of some violence directed at them.

By the way...

This is the Gran Turismo team...

Mclaren
Sauber
Vettel
Perez

No, four of the team were inadvertently caught up in some of the protesting out there. Force India were not being targeted - they were just unlucky - but the team agreed they could leave the country.

I wasn't sure that I heard right because I wasn't paying particular attention to the radio at the time. So I only got half a story it seems...

I must hand it to warpsite1 and other Euronuts, they are consistent with their sports - ALL ARE BORING. But I did get a nice photo that Orm took of warspite1 and his date(thanks to being a posting master) watching cars go in circles:

Let's hope Maldanado can make use of the pole and give Williams a much needed win....not going to happen though - my money is on Lotus.

Who forgot to fill up Lewis fuel tank???

Of course with a lighter car it is possible to race faster, but isn't it a case of maths to work out the fuel consumption for a few laps?

I know the mechanics are also humans, but they get paid a large salary to get the cars to the pole and after on the podium.

Man am I annoyed when I see such results.

Not, I'll wager, as angry as Lewis.... Poor Lewis, he's learning from his mistakes of last year, trying to keep his nose clean and be consistent - and he keeps getting dumped on

True, last season he made some stupid mistakes. But after getting pole and finding put that due to rule infriction you're going to start from the end of the grid is, well not sure which words to use, as there might be minors following this thread.

Just hope he doesn't get mixed up in any accidents at the start of the race and can "fight" his way through.

Having to watch the race on german telly isn't going to make any things more fun to watch.

I hope - for the sake of a good race - Maldanado gets off to a flier with Alonso tucked in behind and Lotus' unable to overtake. Could be good tomorrow.

Anyway OT, but haven't you got some voting to do british exil?

Ohhhhhh.

Tomorrow is going to be a long hard day. F1, Premier League and voting.

Voting, of course. I should use my rights to vote and I did say I was going to didn't I. That was 2 weeks ago, I had hoped someone might have forgotten about it.

Looks like you do have some superpowers W1.

Who do you follow in the PL?

Yes, I was not going to forget I hope to get the preliminary rounds completed tomorrow so if you can vote that would be good - there are a few tight battles for places where one vote can make all the difference.

Good luck, we're all counting on you.

I just pop in every now and again and watch a live premiere league match on telly.

I follow the Bundesliga and am a fan of Hannover 96. Just watched Bayern Munich get beaten again against Dortmund. Cup final 5:2!! Dortmund have gotten a double this season and Bayern nothing. Hoping Chealsea will win the CL next week so that Bayern have a season they will want to forget ASAP.

Will vote tomorrow. 34 pages to read through will take a while. But I will/ must do it, if everybody is counting on me.

For me its quite simple; if Spurs (by some miracle ) or Newcastle finish 4th then I want Bayern Munich to win the CL. Equally unlikely, but if Arsenal muck up against West Brom and finish 4th I will be the biggest Chelsea fan imaginable!!

YAWN. Watching cars go round and round.

Here is something that might be about as exciting as watching cars race:
