Which do you guys think will happen first: McLaren gets eliminated in Q1 or the engine breaks down?

This is probably going to be the most exciting Q1 session ever.

Both Manors and 1 mclaren (k mag) and a sauber (ericsson) will drop out in q1 i reckon. However mclaren will be hoping that the baliffs remove sauber and manor continue to install update 74 of 12,986

It depends how many they chuck out.

With 20 entrants, it'll be 5 and 5. If Manor and Sauber don't start, at least one of the McLarens is going through.

Boring F1 again. Every non F1 fan who says the sport is boring can gently caress right off this is some vintage entertainment.

Button to get into q3 by a weird miracle. Sauber to race and get cars impounded after quali and hamilton to ram rosberg off. Three sure thing bets for this weekend.

How dare you impugn the honour of the deputy team principal of our hearts.

And as for her team, the team that employed legends like race winner pastor maldonado, the team that uncerimoniously fired damon hill, the only team currently presided over by a knight of the realm no less.

Williams are a team that is both cool and good.

Yeah. I dunno why they dropped the red for the BT60Y it looks much better. What was the exact reason for those squared-off airboxes that appeared on some of the cars (off the top of my head BT58, BT59Y, Zakspeed 891)?

He's dropped his claim to race in Australia so Sauber can compete, but is continuing to negotiate. An interesting strategy; not only does he have the law on his side, he's going to get a lot of sympathy points for not being a destructive dick even though he would be totally in the right to do so.
