The betting money is to more than 50% on Seb Vettel again to take pole.

You predicted it would be 902 m before turn 14??
Yep!

When I said:
Isn't it more likely for DRS to be between 13 and 14? Long straight, followed by a slow corner...
it really meant:

Well, just looking at the circuit layout(not many Red Bull curves), I think(as somebody else wrote earlier) that Renault should be strong and outqualify Ferrari. Will McLaren outqualify Red Bull? I don't really know the characteristics of their car yet, only thing I remember(Malaysia) is that Hamilton was very close to Heidfeld entering the curve before the main straight, but when exiting nor KERS nor DRS helped him to overtake. It will also be interesting to see how the lower temperature will affect their performance, I really hope that Red Bull won't be as dominant as in Australia. Predicting qualifying order Hamilton - Vettel - Button - Heidfeld - Webber - Alonso - Petrov - Masa - Kobayashi - Rosberg

From Virgin Racing's Twitter feed..
Apparently there's a shortage of gold bands so look out for silver on the options this weekend

What if the supplier is from Japan and their inventory has run out? I head gold paint pens are in high demand nowadays and with the factory under repair it's not looking good for F1.

Does anyone know the schedule for when the practice sessions, quali and the race will be shown (BST... in the UK)? BBC sport website has still not posted the F1 Calendar for download, presumably because not all races are yet confirmed.

Cheers in advance!

If you go to formula1.com you can click on "show times in my location" (or whatever it says) on the right hand side below the race countdown and it gives you the relevant local time.
