i saw, thanks for the clarification!

I saw FP1 for the first 45 min. then had to leave for class. When i left, Lewis was p1 with vettel p2 and Alonso p3. Lewis was 1:40.1xx but dam, how the hell did vettel just jump to p1 by over a second?! only thing i can think of is that he went on to the mediums while everyone else was on hards? Is this true?

Probably on completely different strategies on different fuel loads doing different setup tests. Don't read anything into it.

And yes, if you look at boxster's location it's "International".

If you laid them side-by-side, you'd 48,258 Big Macs (costing around $172,000) to wind their way around the 5.516 km of the track.

Go Maldonado! I hope he was not super light on fuel and will actually have in the mix for the front 3 rows or Q3 at least

Now, as for the rest of you, where are the pics?! Except for nydubber's videos (which I can't view at work ), this thread is mighty empty!!

My best friend was at Turn 12 yesterday. He posted 17 pics of the historic F1 cars and *one* of a modern F1 car on FB. I am disappoint.
