So, in light of this, I took it upon myself many months ago to reserve a special spot for you on the grid when you were in Japan. Say hello to the very back of the grid Mr Alonso. Enjoy your race!

Best regards,

Masashi Yamamoto.
General Manager, Honda motorsport
Dear Mr. Yamamoto

I am disappointed that your promised upgrade for Japan will not arrive in time for the race. Sadly I am all too familiar with the back of the grid since Honda joined McLaren as an engine partner.

Business as usual!

Yours cordially

F. Alonso

Mercedes didn't qualify 1-2, they were 1 and 6 because of Bottas' gear box penalty, with Ferrari 2 and 10.

The actual GP is at 6am tomorrow morning. I'd like to watch it but that's earlier than I get up during the working week. I will have to think about it.

I am aware of that. Nevertheless they set the two fastest times.

Actually they did qualify 1-2. The grid isn’t just set by qualifying though.

Looks like their upgrades worked... or was it track temps? In the cooler weather, the Mercedes comes alive. In the heat, the Ferrari (and RB sometimes) seem to be a lot better.

Missed the start. Lulu's leading but Vettel is out, so it looks like his bid for the championship is well and truly over.

According to BBC Radio 5 Live, Vettel started dropping back through the field on lap 2 and they thought it was due to no hybrid power, so Ferrari told him to pit on lap 5.

Well then! Hoping Red Bull can stir up some trouble. Keep it from becoming a procession...

I suggest putting Massa to the back of the grid next race for strongly interferring with the battle for the lead in the final lap.

Congrats to Lulu. He's now got a 59 point lead and 4 races left. He could win the WDC at Austin.

Really bizarre how Ferrari completely ruined a potentially very interesting championship finale with their last few races. It would take any other team some effort to do that.

It's like satire.

And this time they forgot to swap cars.

It's a real shame as at the point when we really thought we were in for a great championship. Vettel's pole turned into three poor races and a massive deficit in the table.

Mclaren made a pretty good job of it in 2007 ;-)
