He should. Have a few years over in America taking in IndyCar and the American racing scene. Then there's this thing in France that might be worth looking at.

He should consider everything outside of his current gig, but I hope he doesn't go out like this in his home GP.

Bottas has problems a water leak has been found on his power unit and the team are fitting the engine used for the first four races in its place meaning Bottas will be a late starter today

And there you have it. Water leaks. Proof that Mercedes have indeed been working with Honda.

FP3 results. Kimi Raikkonen is the best of all.

I love the fact that the people who are in charge of the sport have made the decision to make the numbers a bit more visible than before

Alonso qualifies P7!!

Lucky Vettel didn't do as he was told to by his team then. Ended up on the front row when he could've been at the back. Shame on Ferrari.

Provisional grid.



I hope for Alonso's sanity, and for F1 as a sport, he finishes the race in the top 10 tomorrow. And I hope Chase and Ross can find him a competitive drive for next year. Alonso needs to be fighting with Vettel and Hamilton. It's a damn shame he is in this situation.

Absolutely!

He can be as grumpy as he likes when he can pull laps out of his posterior like that.

That gives some idea of the potential. No wonder Alonso's been so frustrated.

2007 – Felipe Massa
2008 – Kimi Raikkonen
2009 – Jenson Button
2010 – Mark Webber
2011 – Sebastian Vettel
2012 – Pastor Maldonado
2013 – Fernando Alonso

It's never been that great a circuit to race on. I think the most memorable races are :-

1991 : The first race held there. Senna and Mansell going wheel-to-wheel down the main straight with spark flying everywhere. Who would break last into the first corner? I doubt that sort of thing would happen with the modern day aero on the cars.

1992 : Held in the wet. A rare mistake from Senna in the wet - and he went off the track and didn't finish. Schumi looked superb and was managing to catch Mansell, but Mansell started going faster. A superb finish from Jean Alesi in third as well.

1994 : Schumi driving to a superb second with his car stuck in fifth gear for most of the race.

1996 : A superb win from Schumi. One of the his best races. In the wet and in the underpowered Ferrari - he took on both Williams and pulled out a massive lead to finish first, and took his first win for Ferrari.

It's a shame that the chicane was put in before the last corner - as before that, it was one of the best corners in F1. Only decent thing about the track - in my opinion.

Never doubt a motivated Spaniard! Well done Fernando! Hope he can pull off some points, now.
