*****Official Formula 1 Thread*******

Everyone else gets an official thread, so I want one too.

I've seen several people make mentions of F1 on here. So, I'm giving us a thread. No more Speed bs coverage. NBC looks like they are taking it serious and will have some good coverage.

With DVRs now, it's no longer a pain in the ass to watch the races. So watch them and discuss

And if you don't watch F1. You suck. Best racing on the planet.

Kimi is a beast. I loved his radio communcation at the end of the race "SeeItoldyouguyswehadagreatcar"

Championship should be real interesting. Ferrari is starting fast. Red Bull is in their usual form. And Lotus has come out swinging. Raikonnen has a real shot at the driver's championship. Even Mercedes had a good pace. If they get their electrical and gearbox demons figured out quick, Lew Hamilton will be up there too.

Malaysia starts tonight at 2:30 AM.


Quote:
Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel beat the Ferrari drivers to take pole position in a rain-affected qualifying session for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

The world champion was nearly a second quicker than Felipe Massa, who edged out team-mate Fernando Alonso with the last lap of the session.

Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg were fourth and sixth, split by Red Bull's Mark Webber.

Lotus's Kimi Raikkonen was seventh ahead of McLaren's Jenson Button.
Raikkonen was later given a three-place grid penalty for impeding Rosberg and dropped down to 10th place, behind Button, Force India's Adrian Sutil and McLaren's Sergio Perez.

Vettel and the two Ferrari drivers were the three final cars to cross the line in a session that started in the rain and dried throughout, but always stayed too wet for 'slick' dry-weather tyres.

Alonso was first to cross the line, displacing Hamilton as the fastest man, before Vettel beat him by just over a second, and then Massa split them with the final lap.

Vettel and Massa came in for a fresh set of intermediates prior to their final runs, but Alonso elected to stay out.

The Brazilian out-qualified Alonso for the fourth successive race - this time by the margin of 0.14secs.

"We thought it was best come in for new tyres and we confirmed that pretty soon," said Vettel. "I was surprised by the gap in the end."

Massa said: "I don't know if we were able to be second and third in the dry - there were other quick cars like Webber and Kimi.

"It was a good qualifying for us. We took the right decision to stop to change tyres and managed to put a good lap together."

Team-mate Alonso added: "It is a long time since being in the top three, since Hockenheim [in July last year] so it is nice to be back here.

"Starting third gives you the realistic opportunity of a podium and it gives you also the possibility of winning the race. It is a good position to start [from] and we are very happy."

Hamilton lost out by not stopping to fit a fresh set of 'intermediate' tyres.
He said: "Our strategy was to stay out; we thought it would dry up a bit more, but it didn't. But there's lots of positives to take out so I am excited about the race."
The rain hit halfway through the second part of qualifying and Force India's Paul di Resta was one of those to lose out as a result.

The Scot was called in by his team to change tyres and to do so he had to abort a faster lap and by the time he was out on the track again it was raining.

He ended up 15th, behind Lotus's Romain Grosjean, Sauber's Nico Hulkenberg, Toro Rosso's Daniel Ricciardo and the second Sauber of Esteban Gutierrez.

Lotus blamed the failure of their weather radar for Grosjean missing out on the top 10 shoot-out.

Williams continued to struggle, just as they had at the first race of the season in Australia a week ago, with Pastor Maldonado 16th and team-mate Valtteri Bottas 18th after failing to progress beyond the first knock-out session, which was held in the dry.


Top 10 qualifiers:

1. Sebastian Vettel (Ger), Red Bull - 1min 49.674secs
2. Felipe Massa (Bra), Ferrari - 1:50.587
3. Fernando Alonso (Spa), Ferrari - 1:50.727
4. Lewis Hamilton (GB), Mercedes - 1:51.699
5. Mark Webber (Aus), Red Bull - 1:52.244
6. Nico Rosberg (Ger), Mercedes - 1:52.519
7. Kimi Raikkonen (Fin), Lotus - 1:52.970
8. Jenson Button (GB), McLaren - 1:53.175
9. Adrian Sutil (Ger), Force India - 1:53.439
10. Sergio Perez (Mex), McLaren - 1:54.136

Malaysia Grand Prix: Whom are you picking?

Alonso
Massa
Kimi

Kimi was given a three-place penalty for blocking Rosberg during qualifying. He starts 10th on the grid - which might be too far back to be on podium.

However, they have to get through the start and you never know what is going to happen with these lastest 2013 tires -

I wonder whom Vettel will defend at the start - Alonso or Massa.

Guess, I am going to set my alarm...

WOW ... Alonso is out! Webber clipped his wing -- HUGE mistake by Ferrari, not pitting Alonso..."Ferrari pit crew waiting"


I think Webber also clipped Vettel's wing.

J.C. what a cluster f. Woke me right up! Can't believe that happened.

Nico on the move - coming up on Hamilton...

You're sleeping?

Did you hear Vettel defied team orders to win the race over his teammate Weber?

I get it - Formula 1 a team will give an order to their driver to maintain a gap or in nonprofessional terms, not to pass their teammate in managed situations – especially near the end of a race.

I get it - Teams do not want to see both of their drivers racing each other and end up in the fence and giving away points. I get it - if driver #1 is going for the world championship – the team does not want to see driver #2 winning a race and interfering with driver #1 points.

Nevertheless, as a fan I don’t like it – I just want to see the most skilled driver with the best car win. That is all.

Here is a good review of Malaysian Grand Prix review:

Vettel defies team orders to seize victory
Alonso out early
Webber takes lead
“Mark is too slow”
War breaks out at Red Bull
No smiles on the podium

You can be hooked fast on Formula 1. The technology behind an F1 car is so interesting and complex. In this sport, the technical director is more important than the driver is. They employ the best research and development scientists, who make the car.

The only downside, you will have to watch Formula 1 races live - in the middle of the night. Otherwise, you would miss NASCAR races when FOXsports replays F1 in the US.

It sounds like you are talking about the DRS button that reduces the race car's aerodynamic drag in order to overtake another race car in F1.

I fell asleep Sat night and watched it last night.

Vettel's move on Webber was bullshit. Webber turned down his engine on team orders and expected Vettel to do the same and not take it to him. If the order to turn down his engine and hold position hadn't been given then Webber would have been pushing and kept the lead. Sneaky German was sneaky.
