Same situation with the tyres. Let's see how painful it'll be this time for Ferrari.

It's an odd tyre choice, but I don't know if it's painful. Vettel brought one set of softs to Sochi, and he didn't touch them until he made the undercut work. Maybe Ferrari feel that they have done enough testing on the harder tyres?

Didnt exactly this already hurt them in Singapore?

I like the coincidence last year of Hamilton's Q3 laptime and overall race time being 1.27.31. True, the numbers are hours and minutes etc but I find it attractive.

Always nice to see F1 cars on the greatest drivers track there is. Should be wet or what does the weather experts say at the moment?

Hard to call weatherwise at the moment. Chance of rain but not high predicted amount.

It was a joy to watch Hamilton in the first sector here last year.

Thanks. =D>

Any chance it could be added to the OP for later reference by others?
