    Chinese F1 Grand Prix

    So qualifying is about to start.
    Looks like it could be an interesting qualifying. Hamilton looks strong but will have a 5 place grid penalty if Mclaren do end up changing his gearbox. My money is on one of the mercs taking pole. I hope it's Rosberg. I hope to see another great performance by Sauber in the race as well.[thumbup]

    Re: Chinese F1 Grand Prix

    Anyone else shocked at the level of air pollution?

    Back on topic, as they should have been close to their race/qualifying trim, seems the red cars may be a little off the pace, the McLarens on it and not sure about the RBs - they could have been foxing a bit?
    Whatever, I expect qualifying to be quite interesting


    As an aside, anyone having issues with the www.formula1.com live timing app' for the PC?

    Where did Rosberg find half a second?!
    Nice one Kobayashi too.

    Great result for Mercedes, that Rosberg lap was outstanding...

    Now lets see if they have any race pace again though, otherwise it's McLaren vs Sauber for the win I reckon.

    I'm enjoying the fact Vettel is acting like the typical German. Throwing his toys out the pram when he's not got access to God mode.

    Re: Chinese F1 Grand Prix

    It's worth remembering Rosberg's decent 5th place effort in China last year. If it's cold then maybe it'll be Mercedes day. Of course if it's cold maybe Alonso can make an appearance on the podium again.

    It's going to be a good race tomorrow, I can feel it. :D

    Re: Chinese F1 Grand Prix

    Easily the best Q2 I recall seeing!
    Very nice drive from Rosberg and I think it'll have a few teams wondering where it came from - not so much the pole, but the amount it was by

    As for young Vettel, not surprised he's upset (and probably a bit embarrassed) but it will give him a chance to show he can actually overtake - if he doesn't go off trying too hard.
    Anyway, really looking forward to tomorrow's race!
