The Merc engines had a meatier exhaust note than the Ferrari's or Renault's. One of the Torro Rosso cars sounded like poo poo and I thought the motor was going to grenade.

Hope you're having an amazing day



I only heard the new engines for the first time today, I didn't want to hear them on a lovely youtube video, but just on the TV it'd be likely I'd watch 99% of the races on... caught a repeat of the tail end of FP2 after work, it's different but I kinda like it. Vroom!

Right, I'm heading off to bed.. when I get up, quali will only be a short way away.

Mate and I were walking down the pitlane on Thursday and we stood in front of the Ferrari garage. There were distinct differences in the wings they'd given Kimi and Alonso. We figured that part of the time difference was because they were testing different parts in practice.

Alonso may well be faster than Kimi, but I can't see him being slower than Massa.

If Kimi stays half a second behind *and* Massa starts winning races, Alonso's reputation is gonna go supernova

Melbourne's known for highly variable weather, there's been a few drops of rain today for me in the eastern suburbs and I'm guessing it'll be a rainy qualifying session.

The track's just above the St Kilda marker below the centre.

I'm thinking I might head into the track tomorrow (general admission) - most years I just watch it on TV but I should really go in person at least once.

Eh, in that case Vettel's whining would actually be warranted so I don't think he'd get too much poo poo for it. It'd be a lot funnier if this was happening to him, though.

He hasn't even been to the factory in weeks from last reports. Big Ron said its an issue between him and Whitmarsh and its a private matter that he'll sort out in due time and blah blah no more comment.

Not sure anyone else has noticed, but it looks like the Renault engines are rev limited to 12000rpm. Vettel was doing his qualy practice and that's as high as the revs were going. If they're losing 3000rpm to the mercs and ferraris, they'd be losing a lot of power.

I feel a bit bad for Caterham having a crap engine on top of everything else to do with their cars, but if if means i get to hear Grosjean yelling over the radio and the Vettelsreich is at bay for a few months then i'm all for it.

Man 7 pages already, awesome work on the OP, OP. And the thread title is the best (for the worst)

Haven't been able to see any of the coverage, but I just read "Like many out in the final ten minutes, Vettel was caught up by a tail wind at Turn 9 that buffered his car and went him running wide."
Was that as awesome as it sounds?
