Good recovery by Rosberg. Hamilton could easily have found a few tenths on that first lap. Would be surprised to see Vettel not being penalised for blatant blocking. Ferrari 6th and 7th? Funny how Vettel said their pace was genuine yesterday. Looking out for Alonso and Perez starting 11th and 12th starting on the softs.

The issue is Ferrari did not improve with SS tires, others did.
Vettel's SS lap on Q3 was only 0.004 faster than his soft tire Q2 run.

If he isn't careful tomorrow the Bulls will jump him, and if he finishes 4th, just finishing second to Lewis won't cut it anymore.

I'm more nervous about the start... more than anything. Lets see how that pans out....

EDIT: I'm even considering turning on the TV 5 minutes after the start... just in case... so I don't have to scream at the TV,......

Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II

If he takes the lead at the start, it will be a very interesting race.

Fair enough, but they should let the results do the talking. They looked quicker than RB all weekend and after qualifying it looks like it will be difficult for them to finish inside the top four. Interesting that Horner said RB prefered starting on the SS instead of the soft.

Alonso did it intentionally and vettel didn't. That's the difference.
Proof of that, please. Vettel´s block was blatant...

I watched an onboard video from Vettel's car and he was busy warming his tyres prior to setting his best lap time, he was weaving just prior to the slow corners and was unaware of the impending approach of Hamilton. At the moment Hamilton passes him I think he was adjusting a setting on his steering wheel and it looked like he was taken completely by surprise.

I do not think it was deliberate at all and I hope no further action by the stewards will be needed. Both drivers got through the session so no lasting detrimental impact was caused.

Vettel is loosing the plot quite fast and this is what the new comers think of him
Ferrari duo Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel, who share five world championships between them, have been particularly vocal in their opposition of the Dutchman's ploy.
'I think it is a pretty positive thing that they have to apply a rule to get past me,' a typically-bullish Verstappen added. 'You always have the older guys in every sport who speak up a bit more to the younger ones.
'The older guys have been the most vocal, the world champions [in particular]. Lewis doesn't really speak that much. He is pretty relaxed. I just try to be myself and do my own thing.'
