FP3 is between 14:00 and 15:00 local time. At 14:00 is 0.2mm rain predicted, but near 15:00 it is going to 1mm. So yes, FP3 will be wet but Q will be 80% dry. =D>
If it is wet there is a greather chance fo Alonso pole position than if it is dry.
This chance is the same for both scenarios = 0,000 % :D . For pointless strategy dissecting, Pirelli:
. So far, there is a performance difference of around 0.7 seconds per lap between the soft and supersoft, as well as the supersoft and ultrasoft. During the Barcelona test, that gap was in the region of 0.3 - 0.5 seconds. Now we need to look at degradation: it's obviously much lower than last year, but along with the teams we have to see to what extent the difference between the compounds here will influence race strategy."

Well, it's far too early to concede the year to Merc and Ham, but if this season does transpire to be a boring procession, maybe Liberty will just give Merc a pile of money to just go away.

If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

damn that sucks, His crash looked a lot more tame on TV than live. I was surprised when he climbed out and kept walking around.

He has said on Australian TV that he is not injured. It's just that he is unfit due to no training after the crash.

Either everyone agrees to hide everything until qualifying or 5s was an overly optimistic prediction.

They always find an extra second from now until Q3.

For me, it is nicer to broke record step by step, 5 second compared to 2016 is overkill

I'm already counting on this second which will make the 2017 cars just about 2s faster than the old ones.
