Fuck! Gonna have to miss the second weekend in a row.

Damn me for going out on a Friday night...

Hamilton's front right tyre after Q2 looked rather shagged. Hope that doesn't lead to an early stop...

Good to see what looked like the old Raikkonen.

Vettel was very scrappy this weekend.

Did you see that coming in some kind of premonition which made you the only one to put Kimi is 2nd place? Well done because I didn't see that coming.

I just have faith in him.

Kimi still isn't quite there in qualifying, but his race pace in the 2015 Ferrari has been top drawer from day one. He was hunting down Vettel in China, and could well have beaten him to third without the late safety car.

I put him ahead of Vettel in Bahrain because he'd managed to qualify ahead of the Williamses for the first time in 2015 and I had a good feeling about his prospects.

He was a joy to watch yesterday.
Alf McQueef

Great race! I have always been a Kimi fan because of his long stint at McLaren and his refusal to play the corporate smiles game, watching a car relentlessly reel in, then overtake, the car ahead is what we watch F1 for.

I'm enjoying this year so much more than the last few - with Vettel and Kimi in the Ferrari and them threatening to break up the Mercedes monopoly I can cheer them on for the first time in years, and I have a sneaking feeling that McLaren's chassis is a good one, and that with the packaging advantages of a full works engine supply (which are only available to Mercedes of the teams using their engines) they might just be in the top 3 late in the season too, if Honda can get their shit together. If Mercedes reliability is not 100% - and lets face it, brakes were not their forte last year - then we could have an exciting fight between cars of more than one colour.

I think you can tell a lot about the fundamental quality of the McLaren-Honda from the demeanour of the drivers and their relative pace to each other. If the chassis was a dog, Button would be struggling.
Chocy Rocky

Damn, missed it again.

Thank the Pope for the Ferrari resurgence, it would be boring as hell without them.
