@Rob: Of course, if it keeps ticking through the laps. We haven't seen Kvyat since he was returned to the pit lane about an hour ago.
@MelhemSake: McLaren has not confirmed its schedule yet.
@natesaunders: Let's see what Mercedes can do on the super-soft tyre later this week (or today, if we're really lucky).
@mfbull At the moment Honda is still based out of Sakura.
@bb No confirmation yet. The team took an awful long time taking it off the recovery crane in front of us here in the media centre, but that was more down to the winds than anything on the car I would imagine.
@rockedin123: That discussion was buried long ago. Even the discussion about revenue sharing has een nipped in the bud by Bernie.
@McNeilNtandoMdluli: To build the suspense of course! No, I would imagine it's gathering as much data as possible about the medium (the mean race tyre) and then will kick into qualifying simulations over the weekend.
It has changed since Jerez, yes. I will try and find a picture for comparison. The main change has been the single rod support in the middle.
I do wish "dropped a huge deuce" was something I could write in copy to emphasise a crushing victory.
Vettel's last lap was a 1:27.414 on the mediums. Hulkenbergdid a 1:31.738 last time out, albeit on the hard tyre.
@Martin: I imagine that's what they've been testing, yes. Looking after rear tyres was a problem for Williams last year so Merc may be working on avoiding doing that itself this year.
@mfbull: At least he said Ferrari and not Carmen Jorda.
@kk: How would we know that?
I would wager it's not "hiding" anything. This has all the hallmarks of a medium tyre run on moderate to high fuel.
@mfbull: You've been rumbled, mfbull.
