Looking forward to this race (and along with the ability to ditch Steve Jones, it was THIS race that made me subscribe to Sky Sports F1 on a temporary basis as I didn't want to be restricted to just highlights).
Almost always good, often unpredictable with the weather and usually throws up some surprises :s_thumbsup

Great track apart from the silly chicane at the end of the 130R before the start finish straight, hopefully Honda will pull the cat from the hat in their own backyard

For Sure, it was an erm, inetersting, erm, Qualifying session, erm, for sure!

I just hope he was a guest presenter, I would almost rather watch just the highlights and put up with Steve Jones than him!

I have got used to Steve Jones but trying to avoid the result of qualifying whilst waiting for Ch4 coverage was challenging to say the least. I hope I don't know the result before tomorrow's coverage! Should be a good race :s_thumbsup

Lewis H. seemed to be on a higher plateau then the rest of the field. If the race start isn't mad and barring mechanical issues, it looks a done deal!

Having said that, mad max behind Seb just like Singapore and Danny R won't be inclined to be passed by his teammate after finally outqualifying him again at last so I can't see him giving any ground.
I hope Lewis gets a good start and gets away from the meleé that will ensue behind him :s_cool
