Seems like RBR will again dominate the Q here. Wonder if Webber gained anytime here aswell last year? ;)

Off topic but is that not technically cutting the corner ( four wheels outside of the white line)?

Curb = track. At least two wheels on track.

Incorrect.

20.3 Drivers must use the track at all times. For the avoidance of doubt the white lines defining the track edges are considered to be part of the track but the kerbs are not.

I'm guessing he has the whole season set up already and as the cars cross the line for one race he's then able to post the next one quick sharp. I'd be impressed if I didn't think it was ever so slightly sad... :wink: :lol:

Yes, it's cutting the corner and is a "naughty". So long as all of them do it at that point then the stewards won't worry too much at a guess.

Having said that though, that turn is one of those that the teams kind of "agree" is a nothing to cut. All 24 cut that corner in a similar fashion last year. From the Red Bulls to the HRTs.

Mh okay. But I'm quite sure that he wasn't the only one who cut the track there.

I don't have anything set up previously. It only takes a couple minutes to find a reliable source for the info.

If you don't like it don't post in it then! :wink:

RB will probably dominate, but Webber was better than Vettel at this circuit for the last 2 years, so will be interesting to see how that one pans out...
