Default Formula 1 2016 - Round 3: The Chinese Grand Prix from Shanghai International Circuit

Last year's thread: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2714671



The old style qualifying is back!!! Alonso has been cleared to race. Both Ferraris finish 1-2 in FP2 ahead of the Mercs. Hamilton has a 5 place grid penalty for a gearbox change. Rosberg is chasing his 6th consecutive win.

10 years since the last win for the GOAT



Mercs stand a chance to break his lap record this year.

You see Bernie, this qualifying format works the best. Stupid old c**t.

Anyways, Hamilton starts from the back LOL. It's possible he'll still end up on the podium.

Ricciardo on the front row FTW!!!

His passes on Alonso and (Trulli? Fisi? I forget which one) in that race were great.


Also, Rosberg on pole, Hamilton way back with 15 places of penalties, and Ferrari still can't get on the front row. As long as they don't blow up, they'll do well.

Hami starts from the rear. Kimi looks strong. Hulkenberg gets a 5 spot penalty. Can Haas make it 3 points finishes in a row?

As much as I disliked the the last 2 qualifying sessions. It seemed IMO to give the fans more exciting races. I thought they should have tweaked it and not completely scrapped it. None the less with Hamilton starting from the back of the grid, Ricciardo starting from 2nd and the Ferrari's right behind. It should be an exciting start and may make for a good race.

Pretty sure Vettel is going to get penalized for passing under the SC.

Does that apply to the pit lane too?


They're investigating Hulk for going too slow.

Aaand 5s penalty.

I can't believe that Vettel is in 2nd, and Kimi in 5th considering where they were after the first lap.

yeh very confused about the 5s for Hulk, confused as to how it's ok to pass coming into the pit under SC.

Amazing drive from the Ferraris. Confusing strategy choice by Merc pitting Hamilton 10ish laps into his stint on the softs when he was in 3rd.

Sucks Ricciardo had that puncture at the start. If that didn't happen he probably would've got no better than 2nd anyways, Rosberg's car is too quick.

Great recovery from both Ferrari's as well. And bad luck for Hamilton.

So that's 6 race wins in a row for Rosberg. The driver that wins 5 in a row has gone on to be World Champion apparently. Still early days anything can happen.

I hope the season continues like this. So far so good.

That first lap crash really screwed things up for a lot of people, but I believe that the top 5 would've stayed the same, with perhaps Hamilton swapping with Kyvat.

I wish we could have seen the Ferrari's take on Rosberg. Kimi's pace over the race was ridiculous and I think he would have had a easy 2nd possibly even challenge Rosberg.

Great/entertaining race though. The Kimi/Lewis battles were great fun.

LOL at the exchange between Kvyat and Vettel.

Vettel: "If I don't go to the left I crash and all three of us go out."
Kvyat: "Well..."
Vettel: "Oh no not 'well', you came like a torpedo!"
Kvyat: "Well that's racing."
Vettel: "That's not racing...If I keep going the same line, you crash!"
Kvyat: "Don't keep going..."
Vettel: "But there's a car on the left!"
Kvyat: "Like I can see all three cars ahead. I have only two eyes."
Vettel: "You shouldn't crash into people like that."
Kvyat: "We didn't."
Vettel: "You didn't."
Kvyat: "I'm on the podium so it's ok, you're on the podium so it's ok."

Vettel's being such a bitch. There was lots of room, and the only reason why it looked like Kvyat ran in there hard and fast was because Vettel had to lift to avoid hitting Raikkonen any harder than he already was going to. Kvyat saw a gap and had opportunity, and he took it. It's not Kvyat's fault Vettel didn't back off. Herr Bieber can suck it.

I saw some Senna in that move by Kvyat, and later in his lack of empathy for Vettel who apparently doesn't think it's his job to avoid contact. Good for him.

I was waiting for Kvyat to say that he learned the move from Vettel.

F1 practice, qualifying, and the races are all aired live on NBC. How much more coverage are you expecting?
