Or too posh to mix with the plebeians.

I'll be damned if I'm gonna pay for Sky Sports, robbing bastards.

I see qualifying as follows:

1 Vettel
2 Kimi
3 Rosberg

Can't wait!

P.s I know quali has been and gone but I've avoided all news as I'm reliant on the bbc highlights, so I'm guessing blind.

Q2 and 3 have been postponed until tomorrow morning, Jim. Torrential rain and fading light was the cause.

Looked like they were all spinning out at one point. That Ferrari crash was the last one before they halted it I think.

Oh well, the boy will most likely have me up and about by 5:30 so I'll get to watch the quali highlights.

Looks like Rosberg will have to make do with being a clear number 2 to Hamilton this year. I can understand the team telling them to hold station with 10 laps to go because they were on for a good points haul and they were never going to catch the Red Bulls, but Hamilton was coasting for the last 2 laps. Surely there's no reason why they wouldn't let Rosberg cruise past him if they were being given equal treatment.

How awkward was it between Vettel and Webber in the room before they went out on the podium btw?! :lol:

I think Coulthard said they may have underfueled Hamilton and felt it unfair he lost a place through no fault of his own. Whether that's true or fair is up for debate. Rosberg will pounce on any slight chance of getting that favour returned that's for sure.

Also think Vettel had every right to go for it.

You can see it from both sides, I suppose. They can say that it would be unfair for Hamilton to lose a place through no fault of his own but, how unfair was it on Nico to tell him to sit behind Lewis for the last two laps when he almost could've jumped out of the car and ran past him!

As for the Vettel thing, he was out of order imo. They clearly had been told to hold station until the end of the race. Webber and Horner said it afterwards. Webber eased off because he expected Vettel to do the same but instead he flew past him and risked taking them both off. It was great for us spectators, but he clearly disobeyed the teams orders.

Team orders aren't great for racing, it shouldn't have been legalised and made acceptable. I preferred it the old way when it was out of the public eye, for the most part anyway.

Webber has been burnt before by Vettel so I'd be surprised if he was caught off-guard. I wouldn't trust Vettel anymore than I would Schumacher or Senna in their day. Winners don't play by the book, especially in F1. I often think Hamilton should stop worrying about what people think of him and just win at all costs.

Just read some post race transcripts. f**k me has Vettel screwed Webber over or what? Not buying into his apology and so called regret at winning. The guy is a shark - can you imagine him and Alonso in the same team?! I'd pay a monthly subscription fee to see that happen!

Did you hear Webber's interview on the podium, Jim? He wasn't happy!

"In the end, Seb made his own decisions today and will have protection as usual!"

I did. He's got the same dilemma Massa and Barichello (spell check!) had, don't like being number 2 but its that or a team outside of the big guns.

Rock and a hard place I think they call it.

As Jimbo and Flash probably know, I have never or ever will like F1.
Not for me but after catching snippetts from it off ssn over the weekend, me and me boy were talking about it and neither of us can understand how it can be classed as a so-called sport when one team mate is asked to lose in favour of another team mate!
Surely sport is all about wanting to be the best and win everytime?

They had officially banned team orders for years but teams (Ferrari mainly) were still doing it by making it clear to one driver that they wanted him to move over and let the other driver through without actually telling them straight out to move over. They were making a mockery of the rule so they just lifted the ban.
