Spa is definitely my favorite race on the calendar. Pulling for Kimi.

On a side note, if you run an F1 team and want to take a historically successful team and toss it in the gutter, hire Sam Michael.

Drivers to raise questions over grid grooves

Quote:
F1 drivers say they will request the opportunity to conduct practice starts on the new surface on part of the grid at Spa-Francorchamps.

A series of drainage channels have been cut in the tarmac across the first 11 grid hatchings to disperse water in the event of heavy rain. These could affect drivers in the front half of the grid when making their starts.

“We actually had a meeting just before the press conference and we were discussing about it,” said Jean-Eric Vergne. “I think we’ll probably bring it up during the drivers’ briefing or team manager’s briefing, try and have a practice start, see if there’s a difference or not.”

Romain Grosjean said: “We noticed it while I was doing the track walk but I haven’t talked with the start guy yet. It looks different when you walk.”

“The first to eleventh grid position are more or less the same so there is no disadvantage from there, it will be more around twelfth position where there could be problems. I think from the first few rows should be same for everyone.”

Sebastian Vettel doubted the channels would have a significant effect on drivers’ starts: “”We don’t know the difference because we never had starts on that kind of surface. I don’t expect it to be a big difference.”

No DVR for me for this race. It is the one I will wake up for and watch live. SPA is awesome.

Tires...please stay together with air. Maybe it will rain as SM suggested. For the record I don't miss Lee on NBCSp no offense.

Thumbs up summer break

I agree with you on the summer break of F1 but I believe that because of the preparation that goes into qualifying and then race day, they may need that break to not just relax a little but make adjustments and decisions mid-season. I am glad that F1 racing is back from the break.

Damn NBC!!! No live broadcast on Qualifying???
If it wasn't online streaming and also NBC Sports Extra streaming online.
I'd be staring at Fulham vs Arsenal or infomercials.

Q3 was awesome!!! I feel bad for Di Resta, but not a bad position to start at P5. If the rain continues, he'd be on pole. The rest lucked out just on the last 2 minutes.
