    Webber certainly has right to appeal - he probably would have got through otherwise.

  • how quiet are the stands btw!!

    The place is dead! wouldn't surprise me if bahrain is sacked off, gonna be losing loads of cash!
    I can only see 1 set of stands on the pit straight... everwhere else seems to be desert!

    I'd say he needs to regain some confidence. If it takes a few months or so away from F1 then sobeit, but I don't think we've seen the best of him. Perhaps going to a small team (force india/torro rosso) would've been a better start. Names can weigh very much on shoulders though.

  • Watch the trulli train go tomorrow,its goint to be a intresting race
  • nah, trulli historically is a one lap specialist, plus team principal admitted they were fueled light. i bet jenson and barrichello have the most fuel of the top ten, remember ross brawn is a master of deception. richard branson smiling about 4th, no, i think he knows something we don't yet

    Toyota 1,2. Yahoo!!! :mrgreen:
    And that stpuid Sutil, what was he thinking? Grab a pole? :evil:
    Webber moved to P18, wow, what an improvement. :(

    Weight. So from this I can conclude that the Redbull will be unstoppable with a
    double rear diffuser, or what ever is used by Toyota, Brawn and Williams.

    1. Jarno Trulli, Toyota, 648.5 kg
    2. Timo Glock, Toyota, 643
    3. Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull, 659
    4. Jenson Button, Brawn GP, 652.5
    5. Lewis Hamilton, McLaren, 652.5
    6. Rubens Barrichello, Brawn GP, 649
    7. Fernando Alonso, Renault, 650.5
    8. Felipe Massa, Ferrari, 664.5
    9. Nico Rosberg, Williams, 670.5
    10. Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari, 671.5
    11. Heikki Kovalainen, McLaren, 678.5
    12. Kazuki Nakajima, Williams, 680.9
    13. Robert Kubica, BMW Sauber, 698.6
    14. Nick Heidfeld, BMW Sauber, 696.3
    15. Nelson Piquet, Renault, 677.6
    16. Sebastien Buemi, Toro Rosso, 678.5
    17. Giancarlo Fisichella, Force India, 652
    18. Mark Webber, Red Bull, 656
    19. Adrian Sutil, Force India, 679
    20. Sebastien Bourdais, Toro Rosso, 667.5
  • hmm.

    Its gonna be tight.
    Glock is out of it - not enough fuel, especially if he doesn't get past Trulli.
    I think Button and Hamilton are in contention, both fueled quite bit more than the front men + Hamilton was quickest in practice.

    Trulli is fairly mid way, so it depends if he can get a good run out of the pack and if Glock and Vettel can hold up Button and Hamilton long enough.

    Love the weights being released before the race, kinda makes it more interesting for the fans :)

    With its constant acceleration and heavy braking, Sakhir is a fuel-thirsty circuit, with consumption of almost 2.9kg per lap.

    With exactly the same fuel load as Button’s Brawn, Lewis was just 0.15s slower, and 0.6s shy of Trulli’s Toyota – a big clawback of the deficit McLaren has had so far this season.
  • wow didn't the ferraris do well? but vettel, bloody hell!!!

    i don't know about anyone else but this is already my favorite season. but unfortunately i have only been watching for about ten years i think, so i have only known the domination by schumacher and his teams, mind you the year damon hill won the championship was a good year

    but brawn haven't done any upgrades yet have they?

  • This is looking to be my favorite season also, and I remember attending a grand prix at Brands Hatch! :shock: (showing my age now :lol: )
    I'd like Button to keep it up, but Vettel has been impressive.

    Looks like those BMW's are running a lot of fuel!?

  • Glock’s Toyota, to pit as early as lap 11 or 12.

    Trulli appears to be fuelled for two more laps, so provided he keeps the lead at the start he should have his team-mate handled.

    Vettel is fuelled four laps longer than Trulli and is most likely gonna leapfrog Trull in the 1st pit stops.

    Button and Hamilton scheduled to stop after the Toyotas but before Vettel

    I think Vettel is gonna end up at the front after 1st pits!

    BMW's def on a 1 stop strategy so they're gonna skip a few people on the 2nd set of pits.

    IMO Massa, Rosberg and Raikkonen are banking on a safety car. They seem fueled pretty much midway between a 1 and 2 stop.

  • nah, get eddie jordan back in the driving seat - his commentating does my head in!

    DC is a cracking commentator!!!
  • e.j yeah he is annoying and aggressive, coulthard is exasperated with his comments sometimes, amazing the bloke could actually drum up business to run a team isn't it?

  • If Vettel doesn't break a leg he could win?..
    Wheres my box of voodoo dolls and a big hammer! :lol:

    i have to be honest and say Bahrain is such a boring GP. I expected the Toyota's to do well this weekend as they did a few days testing there over the winter break, as did Ferrari. I think Ferrari and McLaren will pull back some pace once the season heads back to Europe and they can start some proper development and upgrade the car. Im sure the teams are workin 24/7 on new rear diffusers like whats on the Brawn's, Toyota's and Williams'.
    Im gonna go for Vettel to win again this weekend. :D

    They were slow all weekend, so with this much fuel they'll be even slower.
    They should be praying now for safety car in the race if they want to score points.

    Btw, Ferrari is three races without points. :lol:
  • haha, i know... lets hope they get nout today too :lol:

    Who's watching the live coverage then?
    I've just sat down... :D
  • slightly off key, just watched london marathon and realized their average mph...12mph, thats amazing seeing as i am aiming to break 12mph on my bike over similar distances, to be fair mine is crazily hilly.
