maybe we'll get some rain to help the tire situation, just not the torrential downpours from last year

but I agree, they need to have tires sets specifically for qualifying

BBCPlayer is a media player which can be viewed on the BBC's television channels over the Internet. Below are the download links can be found in the discharged package, as well as the installation program. Both require that the machine has been installed . NET 3.5 and MSVC 2008 packages, but likely they are already installed. I recommend to always use the latest version.

checked the weather report for tmrw's trip..should be sunny and nice!

It was raining up here (i'm about 5 hours north of the track) today...was there rain during qualifying?

Big thumbs up to Hamilton for placing his car on pole.

I hate to play devil's advocate, but did anyone notice how glum Hamilton was after qualifying? I would have expected someone on pole to be a bit happier than that - I wonder if there are some internal issues at Mclaren?

if you watch hamilton's pole lap, it's the larger grandstand just after the pit straight (between turns 1 and 2), Grandstand B. Should get some exciting action with the race start, pit stops, and all that!

meant to embed...sorry. lol

Bootcamp YO. I run this on my MacbookPro with a lil' Bootcamp action. It's worth the install just to have the BBC Player.

It'll take you an hour to install Bootcamp, just make sure to read all the instructions. Take Apple's advice and do print out the instructions. Take a trip over to the bay of pirates for a copy of Win7.

That's the blown diffuser, fully banned in 2012 and partially banned since June of this year (specifically limiting the off throttle "hot blowing"). The distinctive sound remains, even after the partial ban.

LH was on rails! Although a bit moody for someone who just stole pole.
