    F1 Chinar

    Race coming up this weekend, and everything is on at reasonable hours. Now Iíll have to fight the kids for the TV.

    Some interesting rumours circulating regarding Ferrariís engines. Some saying up to 0.5s gain on the straights in Bahrain!

    https://www.news.com.au/sport/motors...d021d8b2eef682

    I also still canít believe news.com.au keep putting up quality F1 news, even if it is from another site.

    Updates for Alfa at this event
    Hopefully Ferrari can keep it together long enough to win and Renault just to finish with 2 cars.

    Pole : Vettel
    Win : Vettel

    Ferrari to show true performance here.

    Ricciardo : 5th
    Panzer Wagen

    M-Cars follow the idea that power should be felt & not seen

    Ferrari need a win otherwise Mercedes are going to walk this season again.

    It's on Ch507 instead of the usual 506 due to clashing with the Super taxis.

    Vettel to choke again with Leclerc in front.

    Renault engine to find some magic pace and another unique way of blowing up (in either a Renault or a McLaren)

    Pole Leclerc
    Win Leclerc

    Vettel 2nd, Bottas 3rd
    Kimi 4th or 5th

    Verstappen to dive bomb Hamilton and both DNF (wishful thinking I know)

    Looks like some of the predictions of Hulk convincingly beating Ric are coming true.

    What odds do you all give Helmut Marko giving Gasly the ass and bringing back Kvyat before the summer break?

    You'd have to be a one eyed Kvyat fan to see that happening.

    Yea but Gasly is getting out qualified by Verstappen by 8/10ths every race! Bloke is not gonna last long at that rate and Kvyat is the best talent that Red Bull has left.

    Nah, Dan put the Hulk back in his box today.

    We can all relax now, the stars have realigned and all is right with the world once more.

    Will be very interesting to see how they go against each other for the year. Dan didn't get him by much.

    Just hoping for some reliability for the Renaults tomorrow.

    No idea why everyone waiting until barely 2 minutes to go before going the 2nd time when they were taking 2 min to do their out lap. Idiocy.

    The Fox Asia commentators banged on about it for a while, saying how crazy it was and that max should have stopped bitching and just got on with it like the guys who passed him did.

    WTF is with the foxtel coverage.?

    This could be the final straw for me.

    V8s were on at the same time so on 507, same thing as in previous years. I only watched qualifying to can't comment on what happened with post qualifying.
