So, so, so tired.
"0350: Luke texts in to ask if Rubens Barrichello is a "lovely person". He is, according to an experienced F1 hack to my left. So that's nice."
Flavio needs to start looking a bit closer to home for performance rather than whinging about everyone else. Red Bull are quick enough without a twin diffuser, so no reason his team couldn't have been.
Also, very disappointing if MacLaren run the new parts tomorrow/Sunday on Hamilton's car and not Kovalinen's.
0803: Renault boss Flavio Briatore reckons the ruling in favour of the 'diffuser three' has made a farce of this season's world championship. He reportedly told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "Our (McLaren, Ferrari and Renault) drivers are or have been world champions, and then you have a (Brawn) driver who was almost retired, and another who is a 'paracarro' (Italian for a roadside concrete post) fighting for the championship. I don't know how we can say we have credibility." Credibility: that's something QPR wouldn't mind getting back.
also haha at the qpr dig (apologies to llb and silverfoxqpr)
Sweeten up his grapes a little.
To 13th place? Good going!
Nice to see the BMWs in their usual Friday position...
BBC Sport in general is quite amazing actually.
And Davidson's bitterness can get a little tiring, though he is a good commentator.
And Legard still hasn't got it right. It's good for sure, but there are a lot of improvements to be made.
Seems like a genuinely horrible person.
BBC coverage starts a 6
I think, anyhow...
"We have a very good relationship"
Was hoping for Q3, but he gets to think more about race strategies, and he's beaten Kubica pretty comprehensively in quali for once. But, natch, when Kubica doesn't do well it's the fault of the car/team...
If the BMWs were competitive I'd love this season so much...
please win me this £200, you only need a podium finish.
but the bet started as £5 on a double :D
Behind Button obvs.
I didn't even watch the race, it would've been torture watching Vettel like a hawk constantly thinking "don't crash".
I'll write down notes and post it all afterwards as if it were real-time. Maybe.
GO NICK!!! etc
Could work out well for Button, he's good in the wet right.
A safe and exciting race please
They're never, ever going to let this go....
