I see Nico took the pole yet again. I'll leave it at that because I don't know anything about F1 and commenting on that fact will simply be taken as evidence of my ignorance. Instead, I'll try to find a way to fellate Lewis to show my bonafides.

Apropos of nothing, In honor of this race I'll be doing the 90 minutes of Spa on Forza 5 later today  You don't realize how long these races really are and how skillful these drivers are until you try to focus on something as simple as a video game against other people for that long.

No kidding, speaks the truth^.  I had to dial my settings in F1 down to 20 laps per....it was grueling.

Expecting the Mercs to run away today.  Spa has those long straightaways and their power is just too much.

Why are we up so early on a Sunday?  It's almost as if we have some form of addiction.........

Morning/ afternoon or whatever.
Looking forward to the race today. Possibility of light rain showers could make for some spills.

I just started following the Lotus team on twitter. Whoever posts appears to be a budding comedian
 
2014-08-24 07:09:56 AM  
any idea why its at 7:30? for the longest time it was advertised everywhere on the net at 7:00 instead

They're a fantastic follow, though occasionally it gets them in a bit of trouble:

Coverage usually starts 30 minutes before the green flag drops.

How many positions will Vettel lose?  Will Riciardio make podium?  Can Massa make it through the first lap without wrecking?

I'm a retard, I woke up an hour earlier and I just realized that... I was talking CT and hadnt noticed it was ET on the headline....

Why is the 8th 1/2 Doctor talking to that tribble on Eddie Jordan's head?
 
2014-08-24 07:57:28 AM  
Hamilton's probably wondering why all these cars are around him at the start
 
2014-08-24 08:00:04 AM  
Dammit, of all times for my internet connection to go full Comcast. No way I'm gonna be able to watch this race live.
 
2014-08-24 08:00:22 AM  
Alonso cannot start
 
2014-08-24 08:01:05 AM  
Rumours floating around about next season already.

Fernando hanging out with some Red Bull people the other day.

Jenson hasn't got a contract yet.

Sure I read something about Ferrari being interested in Hulk, too.

So, given how well Lewis makes up places, he's bound to run away with it.

/This is all in good humour, by the way, I'm not a massive Lewis fanboy.
 
2014-08-24 08:02:56 AM  
would not be surprised if vettel jumps to ferrari
 
2014-08-24 08:05:06 AM  
Bad move, finger boy.
 
2014-08-24 08:05:58 AM  
Bianchi has no tire
 
2014-08-24 08:06:15 AM  
I think the Hungarian commentary guy is going to have an aneurism before the end of the first lap!.

So, ALO -> Red Bull, VET -> Ferrari?

Bad news for Ferrari if they can't give him a good car.
 
2014-08-24 08:06:33 AM  
Vettel acting like a race car driver, nice to see, even if it didn't work.
 
2014-08-24 08:06:34 AM  
Fantastic Lap 1 battle between HAM & VET; shame Finger Boy gambled so much on that turn, though.
 
2014-08-24 08:07:12 AM  
And Nico's taken Hamilton out.
 
2014-08-24 08:07:18 AM  
Oops, not good there.
 
2014-08-24 08:07:21 AM  
Hamilton is gonna murder rosberg
 
2014-08-24 08:08:00 AM  
You hit each other, Lewis.
 
2014-08-24 08:08:09 AM  
Not going to be a fun team meeting at Mercedes
 
2014-08-24 08:08:09 AM  
And Mercedes kiss and trade carbon-fibre. Hamilton sounds ticked on the radio.
 
2014-08-24 08:08:38 AM  
Well, that's one way to get your opposing teammate out of the points.
 
2014-08-24 08:08:55 AM  
Damn.  Race is over on lap 2.
 
2014-08-24 08:09:26 AM  
If anyone can make up places though, Lewis can.
 
2014-08-24 08:09:34 AM  
Stupid penalty, team problem, should be constructor points, not a drive through.
 
2014-08-24 08:09:42 AM  
Brundle and Crofty seem to think Hamilton had the line and that Nico should have backed off a little.
 
2014-08-24 08:09:48 AM  
Well, he starts well from back down the grid. Perhaps this is a good thing

Well, of course they're gonna take the brit's side.

Ricciardo's past finger boy.

I don't think Brundle is capable of nationalism on that scale. His noggin is a bit scrambled. I blame that engine explosion at Silverstone.

Interesting that Riccardo is closing on Rosberg, Vettel was actually losing time, even in the DRS zone.

Webber still can't believe they havent caught up to the prank he pulled when he swapped the serials of ricciardo and vettel's cars.
 
2014-08-24 08:21:50 AM  
From the Lotus twitter feed

 Lack of forward motion the reason for Pastor Maldonado early retirement. We're deploying Hercule Poirot to investigate further.
 
2014-08-24 08:23:45 AM  
Rosberg seems to have streamers on his antenna. Isn't that pretty?
 
2014-08-24 08:23:48 AM  
LOL Rosberg
 
2014-08-24 08:24:34 AM  
Is Mercedes secretly planning an Indycar entry, thus the clown shoes practice today?

They're going to start a Sprint Cup team specifically for JPM, since Paddy owes him one.

5-second penalty to Alonso, for failing to hear the drums.
 
2014-08-24 08:30:26 AM  
Vergne trying to prove he deserves to stay in the F1. As opposed to Disaster maldonado
 
2014-08-24 08:31:29 AM  
Good morning everyone, very exciting 1st third of the race.  Never seen anything like that bit of tire flapping in ROS's helmet screen!

Ricciardo is secretly using a Mercedes car that he painted with the Red Bull colors.

I didn't notice any reports of stolen Mercedes during the summer lull but it may explain a few things.

He obviously painted his old car with the Mercedes colors and swapped it out.
 
2014-08-24 08:37:22 AM  
Nice smoke, Nico.

No, the theft was a Lotus:
