Paul di Resta qualified 7th? Weird.
 
2013-04-21 07:38:22 AM
Just wanted to say that I like the way subby put the time of the start in the headline. F1 races are notorious for being spoiled not only on Fark, but also in many other places on teh intertubes.

+1, subby.

Well atleast it is light out on this side of the pond for this race, getting home at 1:30 with a race just starting was starting to wear me down.

NICO!  WANT TO GO POLING WITH AMERICAN COUSIN?

First back-to-back pole positions since 1955.  And both Force Indias on row 3.  And Kimi biatching that the Lotus car is too slow.  I guess they don't know what they're doing.

Well atleast ALO is in 2nd now, time for a better car to take it to RBR.

Di Resta passes Rosberg for P3

Time for the first non-stop, oh great, upscale nissan commercial.
 
2013-04-21 08:14:47 AM
Massa with a bit of front wing ding. I'll bet he doesn't ignore an order to pit.
 
2013-04-21 08:15:00 AM
Fun start, but a LOT of guys broke their race in these exchanges.
 
2013-04-21 08:16:56 AM
Alonso pits with a DRS failure, exits in P16

"The two McLaren teammates fighting it out, however, back at the front of the pack..."

:(
 
2013-04-21 08:18:19 AM
DRS failed again for him; Mark boxes
 
2013-04-21 08:18:44 AM
Well it looks like Massa is going to be carrying the team this race

WTF are they doing back there? Playing bumper cars?

Seb's going in

It is the lesser teams, they always are playing bumper cars.

Rosberg loves running through the marbles.
 
2013-04-21 08:27:49 AM
One or two more cars running over each other, and they may rival the inevitable clusterfark that will be the Indycar race in Long Beach later today.
 
2013-04-21 08:32:27 AM
Kimi pits, exits in P11
 
2013-04-21 08:34:16 AM
And Ferrari's day goes from bad to worse..
 
2013-04-21 08:34:25 AM
They left Massa's wing alone?
 
2013-04-21 08:34:37 AM
Massa pits, doesn't change his spltter, exits in P15.
 
2013-04-21 08:34:58 AM
Replace the damn wing.

TSN lost the audio from BBC, which is sweet because it is just the sound of the cars. Then they went full-screen commercials, which makes no sense.

UNC_Samurai: They left Massa's wing alone?


Is it just me, or is it becoming more common for them to just not bother these days. I guess either that shiat doesn't matter as much as everyone pretends, or the teams take a very dim view of their drivers' abilities to make up the second it would take to swap noses.

But surely even a slightly farked wing is just going to make the tire situation worse than it already is.

VET +15.215 WEB for P1 and P2

I'm glad the front wings aren't quite as important. Maybe that means the next iteration of cars won't need fairings for those fugly drop-noses.

For whatever reason my cable box isn't letting me access NBCSN at the moment. It worked yesterday.

Add insult to injury, the NBC Live Extra app on my tablet let's me watch the race a minute at a time before it freezes and needs to be restarted.

No F1 for me today.

/small consolation is we all know who is going to win

VET +2.981 GRO after pitting
 
2013-04-21 08:49:24 AM
So many people keep yapping about how Vettel will go to Ferrari or something someday to secure his legacy or some shiat like that. I just don't see why he would want to unless Red Bull just absolutely shiats itself at some point. Not when he watches all of these rival teams turn races like this into amateur hour.

Are F1 races streamed on BBC I-player?  If so, try hola.org - it's a Firefox extension that bypasses all region limitations.

Fierce battle for P5; Button complaining that Perez is too aggressive

King Something: Is it available on Chrome?


Yes, Chrome, Android, and a couple other browsers.

/Holy crap, my Button-Perez snark was more prescient than I thought.
 
2013-04-21 09:00:36 AM
And holy cow, Grosjean might be gaining some experience and skill.  Last year that move would have resulted in a safety car.
 
2013-04-21 09:02:21 AM
Grosjean by Button, to let those crazy McLaren drivers keep fighting it out.
