I see Channel 4 seem to have expanded their coverage on a Race Weekend? On Sunday, program starts at noon and continues through to 4:30pm. Is that typical for them?

I find the Channel 4 coverage of the live races excellent it is just a shame they are not all transmitted live. Mind you I also enjoy Top Gear and my Honda Jazz (but would like a bit more oomph from stationary) so perhaps my opinions should be treated with caution :s_yahoo

Looks like tomorrow should be an interesting race :D

I see Vettel disappearing off in the distance if neither Mercedes can get past Kimi in the run to the first corner.
Lewis hasn't looked good this weekend and a podium finish might end up as a decent damage-limitation result.
Be interesting to see how Bottas does as well. I understand Sochi had been his best circuit for both Qualification and Race prior to joining Mercedes, so hopefully he will show that form tomorrow and mug his fellow countryman off the line (the two do have a bit of history, so I can see some banging of wheels occuring :D )

It will be interesting to see if team orders dictate a swap around with the Mercedes drivers! Should be a good race tomorrow :s_thumbsup

Just read on the BBC that Mercedes have given their drivers order that they need to move over if the one in front is holding up the one behind - whichever one that may be. Makes good sense to me as that maximuses their Constructers World Champion Position. As the season develops we may well find they have to back one driver over the other and again makes sense to me - it is a Team Sport and the lack of strong Team Orders is what cost Mclaren a WDC in 2007 - they threw it away by letting the drivers fight (literally) between each other and could easily have won it by dropping either Alsono or Hamilton for one or two races and shown them exactly who was their boss.

I fancy your boy Seb for the win tomorrow regardless, David :driving He is driving well and doing himself a lot of good in the fans eyes in the process :s_drinks

Turns out the Ferrari has a 200mm shorter wheelbase over the Mercedes so short windy tracks suit them better....well that's showed up in qualifying so can't see the Merc's getting pass...well unless it's done in the pits :(
