@Martin: On the 2010 point, it's easy to say in hindsight. But after the race Alonso said the logical decision at the time was to cover Webber's pit stop, at least from his position in the cockpit. Ferrari could have arguably seen his pit stop had put him in trouble before calling the Spaniard in, though.
@Marais: Or if you take us to an Australian court.
@Srini: Not at the moment. We're awaiting updates from the Victoria Court. The fact they're running suggests a resolution has been found.
Looks like the Van der Garde case has been adjourned until 0930 tomorrow morning.
@Srini: Ugly is a good word to describe it.
@DonovanFroon: Arguably Ayrton Senna wasn't much of a "team" builder either.
There's a good example. I thought Kimi left Lotus in 2013.
@Phil: Well he won't be racing this weekend without that superlicence. Now it's about coming to some sort of settlement or agreement with Sauber.
He might be behind Vettel on the one-lap quali sim but Raikkonen's times are slightly quicker and more consistent than the German's over the longer runs.
We're approaching the final ten minutes of this session with the long runs currently in full swing.
@hodor: I think Alonso is one of the more charismatic drivers.
@AF0111: He's having an engine change so is missing the session.
Ferrari tells Kimi his long run times look good compared to Bottas.
Button complains about a loss of power and returns to the pit lane.
Raikkonen has done a 14-lap stint on the soft tyre. Quite impressive on the softer compound.
@Malcolm: That would be Rory Byrne.
3:30 left in this session.
Big lock up for Grosjean on the penultimate corner.
We're into the final minute of the session.
Chequered flag is out. The cars will stay out on track for another Virtual Safety Car test.
@DougPeacock: Kvyat is just 0.06s ahead of Sainz.
@Questionaire: Drivers are required to stick to a delta time on their steering wheels, with a penalty for anyone who fails to do so. It means the pace of a race can be controlled without having to deploy a safety car.
Thanks as ever for joining me for todays session(s). Please come back again tomorrow for FP3 and the first qualifying session as the pecking order starts to become more clear.
