And they're off!

Yes, at last, the 2013 F1 season is under way

So the Aussie GP practise session makes for interesting debate:

Vettel, followed by Webber, Rosberg, Raikkonen, Grosjean, Alonso, Hamilton, Massa and Sutil make up the top 10

Roll on qualifying tomorrow at early o'clock!

    I too am very excited, was happily deluded that Hamilton and Nico were going to run away with it :wink: but when i saw the redbull pairing at the front i was most P'eed off.

    I think it could be a good season and hopefully no one runs away at the front.

    Here's to a good season and watching Button whinging

    Cracking race indeed.

    WTF Webber? The worst start ever in F1? But kudos to Kimi Raikkonen, a great win and I think Lotus will be a team to be reckoned with.
    My man of the race has to be Adrian Sutil of Force India who after a gap year shows he can still mix it up with the tops teams and even make life difficult when it comes to (trying to) overtake him..

    Let's hope the rest of the season is just as entertaining...
  • GT-ArrowheadGT-Arrowhead Posts: 2,507
    That GP was pretty much like a race win for Sutil. I really really didnt expect that from him, especially in the Force India. Looks like Force India have made a massive improvement and Sutil is as good as he was, if not better! Leading the race for some time and finishing 6th in that car was fantastic.

    And this is why Raikkonen has been my favourite driver ever since 2003 :D That was a class drive again by him, and Lotus have got the car bang on for him too. The tyre strategy was really really good with the 2 stops, and Kimi was the man to pull it off. Looks like Lotus have an amazing car. Hope it stays as reliable as last year though! Go on Kimi!

    Pretty fecking amazing race!
    In my fantasy F1 team i had
    Kimi,
    Sutil,
    Alonso,
    Hamilton.

    Result! I'm now 9th overall in the world!!!! It wont last i'm sure but Hey good way to start the season!

    I was very impressed with Force India over the weekend. Those guys have pace! Would be nice to see the scot picked up by one of the "bigger" teams next season.

    He will be. His contract will not be renewed for force India.

    Well there's rumour that Mark Webber may be ready to retire and could be replaced for 2014 (his contract is only a one year contract).

    I couldnt comment on that as I've worked with different drivers quite a lot but at some point things always change over.

    Predictions for Malaysia?

    Sky weather is showing a 70% chance of rain on sunday, i reckon there'll be up to two safety cars this race.
  • VWsurfbumVWsurfbum Posts: 7,959
    LOL how many laps under safety car?
    I'm glad i'll be watching the race on monday as i'm away this weekend, FF all the way through those dreary laps.

    Hamilton to win, But to be followed closely by Alonso and Nico. I think Nico will qualify well but do his usual dropping down the field. A non finisher for Vettel. (one can hope) and just because we havent heard him winge enough, Button to have a DNF

    When it rains in Kuala Lumpur, it rains! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhCk23SfQlY

    I'm not sure Hamilton will win but i think unless something goes wrong, he will definately finish on the podium. My money is on Alonso to win this one.

    Does that count for spa? Always wanted to go there! :)
  • VTechVTech Posts: 4,736
    Due to being so close my allocation is always used with family or friends. Spa is one circuit you MUST go to.

  • bennett_346bennett_346 Posts: 5,092
    Since i started watching F1 at the grand old age of 3 i've always wanted to see it at either Spa or Monza. Best spectator shows in my opinion.
  • VTechVTech Posts: 4,736
    When you go, make sure you get general admission tickets as grandstands offer the worst views IMO

  • bennett_346bennett_346 Posts: 5,092
    How does general admission differ?
  • VTechVTech Posts: 4,736

    It is the cheapest ticket and you get to sit nearer the action.
    Pick a corner with the longest views either side and sit down there for the best show on earth.

    @bennett: I dont think webber will be retiring soon. He said himself that he doesnt feel like retiring and he feels "young" despite his age. He doesnt however wanna do what Barichello did, go from a top end team and go down the field. Read these two articles on planet F1:

    That looks like a great site, thanks!

    Has been good so far with some really good drives all through the field, especially from some of the new guys like Bianchi. Sutil had a really strong race as well, he is a bit of a tool but you have to give him credit for that performance. Always good to see herr Vettel going backwards :twisted: and a superb win for Kimi.

    Good chance of rain for tomorrow which should spice things up nicely, come on Lewis......hell anybody except Vettel would be good in my book.
