Looking forward to a dry race to really see the pace of the teams. Ferrari is way off, regardless of the diffuser they are a mess. Hopefully Button can stay competetive for a few more races.

This year is crazy. Looking at the standings all the frontrunners are the mid and back runners. And the front runners last year are mid and back of the field. Sucks that Kimi hasn't scored one point yet.

Well they can not test away from the track now so if its not on the car it cant break. Its clear they are having problems with the system especially in the wet.

Not that they new it was going to be pouring during the race when they decided to yank it.

I really am enjoying this season, and it isn't because the rules increased overtaking... quite the opposite ironically; rather the rules caused the top two teams to flounder.

We'll see McLaren and Ferrari turn it around in a couple of rounds and we might have another close finish in October.

Go Kimi!

Kimi is a loser. Dont get me wrong i love how he drives i think hes great, but his attitude sucks.

Anyone who gives up 3 rounds in has no will to win thus making him a loser!

go Hamilton

The Factory Renault Team is not running KERS and did not for the first time this year in China. Alonso went P2 in qualifying w/o KERS and then got the shaft by the safety car and no fuel on board Maybe Renault (Alonso) can pick back up the pace from where they ended last year...
