Honda doing it again...

So chaotic with so many yellows. That narrow piece if track perhaps needs a rethink

Not driving into walls would seem to be the obvious solution.

Red Bull have got to hope that Max didn't punch a driveshaft into the gearbox with his sideswipe. They're looking quick this weekend and don't need a grid drop for a gearbox change.

40 spots back please Mr Alonso.

Mercedes have apparently bought to the attention of the stewards an extra "oil" tank on the Ferrari. Interesting.

autosport reporting that they've amended the turn 8 kerbs, but also that sean gelael binned it there during the gp2 race. so it might just be that it's a hard corner and it needs respect

Yep. Sergio Perez complained, so they fixed it to keep him happy. Keeping Perez happy is important to F1.

Yeah, the first four corners - yeah, I see the resemblance.

It does look like a circuit that is very difficult to overtake on.

I think Red Bull might be good here - as it's a street circuit, and their aero and traction is good in those conditions.

I can't say it's my favourite race on the calendar but the Ferrari v Mercedes battle keeps the interest alive.

Time for qualifying.
