I agree. Based on what we have seen so far, seems like Red Bull are outpacing the rest when the car stay together . Then again, with a few races under the belt, some teams may have made some significant changes. I am hoping for a 3-way battle between RB, Maclaren and Scuderia.....with Vettel coming out on top again

Buemi's accident in the opening practice.

Buemi was unhurt after the STR5's entire front suspension shattered, losing both its wheels and putting the Swiss driver into the barriers...
A right-front upright failure was the reason for Sébastien Buemi's frightening accident in the opening practice.

Does anyone know how the "f-duct" works? I've heard that it stalls downforce for more straight-line speed, but how? Redirecting the air somewhere else?

Thanks for the help

Think the Bugatti Veyron....when Top Gear's James May test it to the top speed....it had to lower the rear spoiler....reduce the downforce....and reduced downforce will also reduce the drag produced by the wing.....

similar principle applies to the "f-duct"...since FIA banned moving rear wing...the will have to play with aerodynamic airflow....

normally the airflow will create downforce when it make contact with the rear wing....however....by channel separate airflow to disrupt the rear wing....the downforce was disrupted and less effective....thus less downforce, less drag, more straight line speed....kinda like when there's cross wind on the circuit....

however, less drag also produce less "dirty air" behind the car....so Petrov can get a tow from Hamilton easily on straight....its kinda like a double knifed sword.....

Amazing qualifying!!!! Sebastian did it again. McLaren, especially Hamilton completely screw up Q3. Looking forward to tomorrow. High probability of rain :-)

Very happy with RB on the front row, the safest place in a wet start. Nico bettered Schumacher again, but I'd look for Schue to make a charge if it rains. Should be another great race tomorrow.
