Thanks for the pics. Looks like not much has changed since last year, even though I thought there were development plans for the area around the track.

And I love that wooden bridge over the track, gives the front straight a 'unique' character.

I'm not sure if there's much supporting races going on throughout the year...seemed like after last year's GP, the site got abandoned until touch-ups for this year.

Funny! And both Christian and Martin brought up some good points about enforcing resource management among FOTA. We'll see what they will come up as a fair solution for all teams.

I was watching BBCplayer and caught that moment...MUST PRESS PRINT SCREEN!!!!! I can't let this slip!!!

Yes, I believe its from BBC Five Live Radio, where i believe was Ted Kravis interviewed the teams. And Jenson Button (?) concerned about it might be a 4 stop strategy race where teams will be running low of Super-softs.

We could see a pretty ridiculous qualifying (no one going out in Q3), in that case. Theoretically you could start 10th and win, as Korea is not a hard place to pass at., especially with DRS.

I was talking to the wife about this today actually and I was saying I could see a lot, if not all, of the teams qualifying on the primes to save all options 100% for the race.

They should bring back qualifying tires...I think that was one of the proposal Pirelli brings up to the FIA for next year's regulation change.
