The pigeon stickers look good for keeping the birds off the car.

If Hamilton is 5'-8" then I'm Yao Ming.

Red Bull seems to be uncomfortable with the set up. Vettel's car has been messing with the exhaust configuration, set up, parts etc...
they even changing the torsion bar and tweaking set up the entire weekend. Vettel seems have not found the confident and comfort zone with the RB8.

And Anthony Davidson pointed out a few tell tale signs of Vettel's mistakes, where he had to miss the apex to avoid spin out because the rear locked up. And fighting with the rear end grip.

Wasn't all that surprising Mercedes doing well, but given LH gearbox penalty its a nice front row lock out.

On a slight aside why do BBC and Sky bother interviewing Monisha Kaltenborn. I'm sure in business she is extremely competent as the CEO but she doesn't exactly add alot of value to the discussion relating to the actual racing.

wow. The normal front runners are nowhere to be found.

When is Kobayashi going to get a top tier car?

However don't forget RB8's race pace is not that bad as we seen in Melbourne.
Plus he got a free choice of tire, and open strategy decision. He might be somewhere in the points, perhaps around P4 or P5 if they play their cards right and no other drama.

Great job for Mercedes to have a front row lockout!!! This season so far there's nothing but Mercedes engine on pole and front row lock out!!!

The only worry is now the race pace of Mercedes, in race trim, they are less competitive than McLaren, and Red Bull. So tonight is going to be very interesting!!!
