Wow that is terrible.

Hope everyone is ok. Look at all the damage, that is a lot of money that went up. If it wasn't burned, it is now water damaged.

They will be scrambling to be prepared for Monaco.

Well done to Williams this weekend, great to see Pastor get his first win, and great for Frank right after his birthday. Hope they didn't lose anything they can't replace in the fire.

Also some fantastic overtakes by Kobayashi and Vettel.

Alonso getting 2nd while not ideal, is still good for Ferrari.

Massa getting lapped will not help his chances of staying in that seat.

Look closer 'to' what picture? KERS related? Are you just guessing?

Source was the fuel canisters in the back but the cause in unknown.

One thing no one's been talking about, or at least i didn't see...

WTF is up with Button's ride?! How can Lewis have a half-second faster setup and Button be struggling with grip in the same car?! the only thing I can try to come up with Lewis' style makes it easier with more oversteer. IDK. Button needs to get his shit together. If both McLaren were struggling, it'd be one thing...

Button was quick in Friday practice. his car is a totally different setup from hamiltons. and button's is apparently far more susceptible to track temperature than hamiltons.

Thats the reason this season is so volatile. Its the tires and none of the teams know how to setup for them. Its the reason that a different team has won each race, the team that gets the tires right for that race win.

Its also the reason that webber started in P12

Massa is such a joke now.

His career has boiled down to being a mid pack runner, that is a pain in the ass to get around. And there are certain drivers he likes to make it even harder for them to get around.

Get the f*ck out of the way Massa!

It's a sad sad day.

I wonder what they can get figured out for Monaco to get the rear end to hold down on a tight track. It'd be nice to see a McLaren on the front (and STAY) again. And WIN. Hopefully they can Button's ride figured out. Won the first race of the season and he's what, 5th, 6th in driver's points right now?
