F1Guy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the gridF1Guy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
So almost 1/3 of the drivers with grid penalties so far, with the possibility of more to come. This is just ridiculous! ()
But will be entertaining watching the likes of RIC, ALO and VES cut through the field ().

Utterly and complete ludicrous. No wonder Ross B wants them gone. It's bringing the 'pinnacle' of motorsport into ludicrous disrepute.....

Add Carlos Sainz to the list of those taking penalties.

Both McLaren's doing a good job in FP2.

Palmer close to Hulk.

Sand bagging from the front 2 teams?

If Spa was anything to go by, the Mercs will have the edge over Ferrari, with their better straight line speed.

I used to really enjoy watching qualifying, as many a time it was more entertaining to watch than the actual race but these grid penalties are getting ridiculous and asfaic detract from the sport.

Add 5 more spots for RIC. A total of 25 spots now.

FP3 is going to be in the rain, and a wet qualifying most likely too.
That should be an interesting grid line-up taking into account the penalties.

I have just heard that grid positions will be worked out by a new formula.

Take each drivers fastest time, add the number of 'grid penalties' divide by the drivers shoe size, take away the number you first thought of, and stick a pin in the list of starters.

Bingo! Ericsson starts on pole!

Interesting to note that in the wet FP3, Massa and Stroll ended the session at the top of the times yet neither of them featured in the top ten through the speed trap.

Says something, although I'm still trying to work out what.

The Williams is quick through the corners in the wet?
(Maybe running high downforce this weekend?)
