Ferrari apparently bringing 5 updates to the race with (as someone predicted above) a bigger update in Spain, seems to be a case of when they can get an update out of the factory they are sticking it on the car.

Saw a tweet this morning that teams are starting to arrive to heavy rain, if that continues maybe alonso can pull another blinder ? Forecast looks a bit dismal : http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/1796236

I'm predicting Jenson, Lewis and Kimi for the podium. I think he'll have the 'normal' race he needs this weekend and we'll see the his and the cars true race pace.
You're being a bit optimistic with Kimi,i think.I reckon we will see him up there,but maybe not quite this early in the season.
I think if he has a clear weekend he'll be up there. The car seems to have the potential and I think he's determined to stick a good performance in.

Dry race:
1. Lewis
2. Webber
3. Vettel

Wet race:
1. Jenson
2. Perez
3. Alonso

Now it's guaranteed that I'll be entirely wrong, having covered all bases!

Some of these rules are so annoying. I don't see what they add to the sport - so far we've seen fans of Kimi robbed of a potential podium and race up at the front, and now fans of Hamilton the same.

:/

Do you have a source for this?

As for Lotus, I can't help but wonder if this is now due to them having less money to spend on development!

Thanks smile

Cant see this being the last of it, I suspect Lotus will not appeal that ruling, which is a shame, as there is already enough politics (Bahrain) detracting from what should be a very close and hard fought season.

nice audi driver

It's not about adding to the sport, but making sure the teams do everything in their power to stick to the required intervals for engine/gbox changes. Give F1 engineers an inch and they'll take several miles.
