Good find! And Seems like the RB10 noze is a bit wider than others.

and the car seems to pass FIA scruitneering on Thursday. We will see further FIA check after qualifying today.

If I recall correctly, that's the FIA mandate Energy storage indicator. To tell marshalls and officials if the car is safe to touch.

My Comcast feed is effing frozen! Been acting like this for over an hour and it's the only channel screwing up. Dammit and I even stayed up to watch it live.

Very cool. Looks like Ricciardo could be a handful for Vettel. The Aussies has not forgotten how SV treated Webber that's for sure, what a roar of applauds when he failed to reach Q3.

Also interesting to see that Kimi consistently looks slower than Alonso.

Mercedes looks very strong with Hamilton showing his skill together with what looks like the best cars. Arguably Ricciardo takes the day though by putting the questionable RBR on the front row on inters on a very slick track. Well done!

That was funny when the crowd cheered loudly when Vettel crossed the line in 13th.

I cheered at home as well!

Props to Ricciardo on inters - I'm not a RedBull fan, but how can you not love that effort.

No we have not!

Looks like they will be earning their money this year, cars look so hard to handle.

C'mon Aussie!

Hamilton was great today.

I'm SO happy to see Vettel struggling! I'm not hoping he chokes this year, but it's nice to see that this year he might not dominate like in years past.

The engines sounded like they were revving a bit higher, I wonder if they'll rev as high during the race, where they'll have to be watching their fuel consumption.

That was one of the best Qualifying sessions in a long time. Great to see from Dry to Inters to Full Wets. Should be one heck of a Race tmr!

That was damn entertaining!

I like seeing the drivers struggle with the car, though I do wish the sound were more raucous.

Wouldn't call myself a fan of anyone in particular, though I pulled for Vet domination the last few years because I liked how it rankled a lot of people. I did wish Web would take it to him here and there.

But this year, I'm finding it hard not to pull for Massa and Botas. I also like Button -- he'll be driving with a bit of a deeper purpose this year, and I'm curious to see if that rear suspension "bell" design has any advantage.

And Ricciardo followed up an off season of saying all the right things by putting his nuts out on the table for all to see -- great for him.

I'd like to see Rosberg beat Hamilton.

So many good stories, just underwhelming sound. I'll be tuning in each week.

I hope it is a dry race. I want to see the true race pace of each car.
