this makes me want to watch F1 even less. Terrible what happened, but knowing how Ratzenberger and Senna died in 1994 (and in the same weekend - it should have been canceled!), she was still lucky if she lost the eye.

It's pissing down in FP1 and seems it will be all weekend.

This could be an interesting race (just as long as they don't start behind the safety car and never get out from behind it).

If it is a wet race then I would expect Jenson Button to do well - he seems to excel in wet conditions.

He does, but he still needs to get his tyres working, which is where he's been failing this year. Great article on it at the BBC site here:

Grosjean quickest in P1. The Lotus team have got a decent car - they should win a race at some point surely?

I'm surprised they haven't yet, particularly with Kimi in the other car.

Mind you, they are 3rd in the championship.

If nothing else, the weather should guarantee a pretty exciting race. (So long as it doesn't rain too hard!)

Fuck my old boots! Watching the F1 Show on Sky and I've just seen my old mate, Chris, directing Lewis, Jenson and Alexander Armstrong for a McLaren animation! :shock:

Alonso fastest from Button and Grosjean in P3. Hamilton only sixth. Qualifying should be good.

Button out after Q1, he qualifies 18th. Tough going out there.

Didn't expect Button to go out in Q1 in these conditions. Plus point is that he's saved tyres if it is wet tomorrow.

In this country the only thing you can't guarantee is the weather! Hope it is wet weather but safe enough not to start behind the safety car - it'll separate the men from the boys!

It was meant to be raining where I live at the moment all day according to the forecase but it has been sunshine all the way today so far - pleasant change from yesterday!
