FP1 is only a few days away... lets rock this!!
i really cannot wait for this one... i feel this is where the meat of the season begins.
i've spent all week running Catalunya on F1 2011 just to get ready for the weekend... it's an awful lot of fun watching when you know those tricky corners yourself (albeit gaming).
Hmmm, whoever makes pole has won the last 11 GPs there. Will that still hold true after next weekend???
Last i saw, it was 60% chance of rain raceday.
McLaren has a revised (higher) nose and pitcrew , Ferrari (hopefully) some effective updates .....
I'm rooting for Lotus and Kimi.
Who really knows what's gonna happen. Schumacher still says the Pirellis are like driving on soft eggs. "They're a yolk!"
Can Rosberg repeat???
Form is temporary; Class is permanent
I'm thinking red bull at the front.
Mclaren with new nose set higher. Practice they were hiding some upgrades and consistently sitting down the charts.
Renault to be up there but not sure on mercedes, although I hope Schumacher to finally get a podium
Let's hope its exciting at least, normal a boring race

Hoping that Lotus is in even better shape. Not holding my breath though.
Have to kill my evenings by watching Giro D'Italia until then.

Would love to see Kimi win! It would also be acceptable to see webbo out qualify and place high in this race than Vettel...you know something better than 4th Place. I am willing to bet Ferrari destroys their tires trying to put Fernanny on pole for the home crowd.
Nice pole, but Lewis not sure why he had to stop on track. (waiting to hear about engine change and penalty). That would leave Maldo a sitting duck for Alonso into turn 1. Wishful thinking.
Button and Webber are gonna have a crappy race and what happened to Vettel?? I thought they were back on form.
Either way, gonna be a great race. Watch out for the Lotus'......definitely a threat for the win.
I like Alonso's chances.
Form is temporary; Class is permanent
I am doubtful though as Barcelona is usually a parade-fest.
We will see tmw i guess...
p.s. Go Lotus
Yup! I mean, really, was Maldonado that much of a thread to send him out with such low fuel?? Not to mention that they already knew what would happen from their own incident in Canada... That was just a decision, really.
Goooooooooooooooooooooooooo Alonso! Sucks that he doesn't have many soft tires left but looks like harder tires are the way to go during the race. But if we're to see used softs - hards - hards from him tomorrow, that gives Kimi and Grosjen a much better chance of getting to him.
Oh man, race is going to be awesome tomorrow! Lotus has come alive this season... and Williams - where the hell did they come from?? Sauber is looking great also!!
EDIT: Gary Anderson said the following about McL:
" the fuel guy had the handle on hose set to drain fuel. And so he switched it over to pump fuel. This mistake meant that Hamilton left the pits with too little fuel. He then went on to say that McLaren need to think more on their feet, because they had time to correct the problem, it only would have cost them 3 seconds, when they had 20 seconds to spare."

Wow, what a crappy deal for Hamilton. I can't believe that he was .5 seconds faster than Maldonado just because he had a low fuel load. Why is Schu ahead of Kob, if Kob had the faster Q2 time? And other than Hamilton, Alonso improved the most from Q2 to Q3. Is that because he used up a bunch of his Option tires?
