The qualifying looks wet.
 
2014-04-20 02:05:03 AM
Why in the hell am I going to stay up and watch this race? Chances are I'll fall asleep.

Anyway, barring a huge driver error Lewis has this locked down. The Mercedes is just too fast. There, now you can go to sleep too.

NBCSN is doing a rebroadcast tomorrow 12 hours after the start time so you can watch it then if you don't care.

I know, but tomor...today is Easter, and I'll be over at my mother's house. Racing is absolutely the last thing that will be tolerated by my family.

Happy Easter, by the way.

Well record it on the DVR and you can enjoy it after the family leaves and your in a food coma

There was talk that if qualifying had been dry cars might have hit 350kph, that's 217mph, on the straightaway. Now think of the size of the engines, and how insane that speed is given that size.
 
2014-04-20 02:28:32 AM
Damn it, forgot about the race.  So much for being awake at church tomorrow.

That makes the corner rather interesting...

On the plus side: insomnia pays off and I get to watch an F1 race.

On the minus side: still drunk from the hockey games.

Still drunk on the minus side?  Sounds like you had a good pre-race warmup.

Perhaps he's drunk enough to cheer for the Wunderkind, but sober enough to know that he shouldn't do it?

My liver hates me...and we're only three days into the first round.

Milka Dunas is calling the race on Univision..?

Go Not Vettel!

/it'll be a Mercedes

given the brakes on these cars, they'd slow down easy enough, course the speed thing only works because the back straight is over a kilometer long.

Good thing they don't let reporters on pit road any more.  Don't need a chicane there.

Falling asleep, so I'll miss Pastor Maldonado walling his car, unless he finds a way to do it before race starts. Which...is possible. #f1
 
2014-04-20 02:51:19 AM
Mercedes has 13 mph over Red Bull at the end of the long straight. Just... wow.
 
2014-04-20 02:52:52 AM
I still haven't found a driver to cheer for since Webber retired.  Maybe Kimi, I dunno.

yet the lap times aren't that far apart.

Yes it is true, but it is also a prime opportunity to attempt to pass for the bold and the stupid.
 
2014-04-20 02:58:01 AM
Wow...you can cut the air with a knife. A dull knife. Abd that's after a rain.

That is a clear day for China.  The smog there makes LA look like a national park.
 
2014-04-20 03:03:05 AM
That thermal camera is awesome.
 
2014-04-20 03:03:47 AM
HAM trying to pull a Will Power?
 
2014-04-20 03:03:55 AM
I wonder if that'll cause some cars to overheat a bit.
 
2014-04-20 03:04:07 AM
Don't drive and text at the same time, Lewis.
 
2014-04-20 03:04:15 AM
Something something telemetry problems?

/not a Spanish speaker
 
2014-04-20 03:04:52 AM
bumpity
 
2014-04-20 03:05:12 AM
There it is....Hooooolkenboooorghh.
 
2014-04-20 03:13:02 AM
WTF Williams.
 
2014-04-20 03:13:40 AM

Jensaarai: WTF Williams.


Suspension of steel, not carbon fiber, it would seem.
 
2014-04-20 03:15:31 AM
And Sutil is out already poor guy
 
2014-04-20 03:16:45 AM
Rosberg's lost telemetry per NBC Sports Twitter -- will need to monitor his own fuel usage.
 
2014-04-20 03:18:56 AM
Vettel down 7 seconds?

Grumpy cat approves.
 
2014-04-20 03:21:43 AM
Damn. I wonder what is the big difference with Mercedes between the other teams. It is looking like they are going to have one of the most dominant seasons ever.
 
2014-04-20 03:22:57 AM
Just hand Massa a beer and call it a day.
 
2014-04-20 03:23:13 AM
Massa is farked.
 
2014-04-20 03:23:19 AM
Massa can't buy a break...
 
2014-04-20 03:23:54 AM
Interesting that Ferrari's team principal is out. Not sure that's a good thing.
 
2014-04-20 03:24:12 AM
WTF Williams... again.
 
2014-04-20 03:24:23 AM
NASCAR-time stop.
 
2014-04-20 03:25:28 AM

Mztlplx: NASCAR-time stop.


Sure, circa 1985.
 
2014-04-20 03:28:04 AM
Vettel just  lost time in the DRS zone with flap open to ALO (whose wing-gap was closed) if the on-screen timing is to be believed.
 
2014-04-20 03:34:20 AM
Almost sounded like he said, "Do you think it's worth farking off?"
 
2014-04-20 03:34:34 AM
And HAM is far enough in front he doesn't even need to make turns.
 
2014-04-20 03:39:53 AM
Good to see Red Bull not getting any special treatment for their violation in Australia.  Does anyone believe they would act the same way if Ferrari was accused of the same misconduct?
 
2014-04-20 03:42:13 AM
Come on Nico..
 
2014-04-20 03:43:31 AM
That was fun.
 
2014-04-20 03:44:05 AM

Daedalus27: Good to see Red Bull not getting any special treatment for their violation in Australia.


The interesting thing is, that the violation was even possible. You'd think the engine software would be set with a hard limit that would make it impossible to have the fuel flow rate go above the allowable. Of course it might be and they had a bad sensor.
 
2014-04-20 03:46:58 AM
won't be long and Ricardo will be getting those Webber cars.

//Go Kimi............
