F1 Chinese Grand Prix

Post by AntmanB on Tue Apr 09, 2013 2:05 am

Arise! All those who don't want to be slaves!
Let our flesh and blood forge our new Great Wall!
As the Chinese people have arrived at their most perilous time.
Every person is forced to expel his very last cry.
Arise! Arise! Arise!
Our million hearts beating as one,
Brave the enemy's fire, March on!
Brave the enemy's fire, March on!
March on! March on! On!

(chinese National Anthem)

Yes, this is the Best i could come up with.

Last years race was actually a pretty good one, I know it's early days yet but sometimes Rain doesn't have to make a race exciting.

As was 2011. I don't know why people give Shanghai so much flak, it's really not that bad a track.

Shanghai is better than some other F1 Tracks. I am talking to you, India, Korea, both tracks in Spain...

Apparently this is suppose to be one of Marussia's better tracks, and they had a good race with Bianchi in Sepang. Last year was memorable with Kimi's tires giving up at the wrong time and leaving him to the sharks, also Nico finally winning. I cannot wait for this race, anything can happen after Multi-21.

Why do I feel that Vettel and Red Bull are going to do everything in their power to have Webber win this week?

Crazy finish. I was sure Vettel was gonna get Hamilton at the rate he was coming.

I'm sure if Vettel didn't choke on the last lap, he would've surely got Hamilton down the straight. Good podium for Hamilton, nice 2nd for Raikkonen and good win Alonso. Overall, this was a pretty good race 8/10

As expected, the F1 race made up for the B.S. NASCAR race we watched earlier. It was crazy how Vettel went beast mode at the end of the race. Hulkenburg looked impressive out there, Webber gets screwed Hamilton continues to surprise people. Overall, a pretty exciting race.

I'm off to bed. See you guys for the truck race.

Pretty decent race. Alonso gets the win. Hamilton holds off Vettel in a hard fought 3rd place battle

Guiterrez takes a steel chair to my dice game as well as Sutil's Rear End. Wobbles gonna Wobble your wheel. Pretty crappy week for the Red Bullls when you think about it.

Interesting, and I guess RBR will be under investigation for the Webber tire issue.

5 place grid drop for Gutierrez - deserved. That was a stupid mistake
3 place grid drop for Webber - that one's harsh IMO. I think Vergne shouldn't have left the door open like he did. Webber was pretty far back, but to me it looked like he was giving the place up, and then he just turned in like Webber wasn't there.

The Top-4 in the points right now are separated by just 12 points, so we could be seeing a very close fought season this year.

This season thus far has sounded just as interesting if not more then last season. Makes me wish even more that I had NBC Sports Sad

Fantastic win from Alonso Smile Bianchi seemed slightly off form today, but even then still won the battle of the backmarkers. To add to that, he sits higher in the championship than Maldonado.

I wouldn't say Bianchi was particularly off form - he was only lapped in the dying laps of the race, while the Williams' were just about to be lapped themselves.

If the talk about RBR possibly being parked for a race because of the wheel issue is to be believed, then whats the point of applying this penalty if he won't even race period.

First, The FIA already doled out a fine to Red Bull for that. Second, the FIA would never park a team, especially Red Bull, for that. That would be ridiculous. And third, even if they did, I'm pretty sure the penalty applies at the next GP Webber attempts, not the next GP on the calendar.
