New F1 team announced - clickety
Rosberg fastest in FP3, both Red Bulls are looking fast and it looks like the McLarens are struggling (or sandbagging?). Rosberg for the win? I certainly hope it isn't The Finger!
Still don't think they should be there.
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
Grrrrrrrrrrrrr! You'd think that BBC.co.uk would not display GP qualifying results on its main News page until after BBC 1 had shown its delayed highlights qualifying programme ??!!
Why? BBC Online is an international media source, serving news needs of millions - not just those who may be waiting to watch one of the organisation's TV shows.
As has been mentioned before, it would be like BBC online not showing football scores until after Match of the Day had been broadcast....
If you're trying to avoid finding out the outcome of anything these days, you have to go dark on all media: broadcast and online.

Just when you think it's safe to watch F1... we get Fingered again!!
I was going to go out of my way to find a live broadcast of the race, not going to bother now.
And I like the phrase to go dark Clare, I've been doing that for years trying to avoid race/qualifying results, just didn't have a term for it, now I do, nice one.
Well, I may regret saying it, but we're certainly not in the position we were in last year i.e. pretty much guaranteed Red Bull / Vettel white wash. Just over half a second separates the top 6 places (and one of them is a Toro Rosso!). So, unlike last year, the result certainly isn't a foregone conclusion. Plus with Schumacher making his way through the field, there's a definite possibility of some good racing, though I seriously doubt we'll get anything like last week obviously.
Good call by Mercedes to get the gearbox pain out of the way when Schumi's race already tanked. Still wouldn't rule him out of a points finish, mind you.
Hope there's an eventful start - which there should/could be when it comes to the first corner - because no-one (Red Bull aside) wants a repeat of last season's Vettel processionals....
Knew I'd regret it...
Still, a much more eventful race than last years at least and I'm loving the look of the drivers' table at the moment!
Indeed. Wish I'd put a fiver on my prediction re Schumi
Vettel wins, normal service has been resumed. Well let's hope not.

and that's the polite, forum friendly, version.
Blimey what a bunch of moaners. Four different drivers in four different teams have won the first four races of the season, plenty of action too, loads of overtakes & unpredictable racing, what more do you want? Ok Vettel won this one, but the outcome of the next race could be anyones guess.

I listened on '5 Live' . . . then watched the BBC version. I much prefer the radio presentation, exciting . . . The BBC was boring, and the circuit is hard to view, the ariel shots were like watching a painted camouflage area??
Good to see the shake-up in drivers this year, Lotus 2nd and 3rd . . . how many would have predicted that? Vettel, I simply disregard him, the word arrogant comes to mind and shades MCS of the past?
