    Very close up front but have Merc also improved their race pace enough to make it stick?

    Just wow, Fernando, that almost left me speechless.. You've still got 'it' auld yin!

    Alonso's P7 was outstanding. I really would love him to get a decent car somewhere.

    Hamilton done well to get pole, but if the race follows the pattern then Ferrari could be a bit quicker in the race.

    I fear few pieces of action again like Russia although it won't be that bad.

    It took me a small while for it to properly sink in for me. Fernando and Maclaren best of the rest behind the Redbull in Barcelona, double wow. Who would have thought that one? That was the lap of the season so far l think.

    But where was the Williams and the Renault? It would seem most teams have been struggling to get the tyres to work at the higher temperatures of Barcelona in the summer; compared the to cooler temps at testing.

    I think Vettel could have taken pole if he had a cleaner lap. There seem to be at least half a second to spare in that Ferrari. Bottas could have also been on the front row if he had managed to get out of the last corner cleanly too. The top four are so close, anyone of them could win the race tomorrow. A clean get away from the lights and possibly a great strategy is going to make the difference in winning or losing today.

    Who do you think will take the win today?

    (A) Hamilton
    (b) Vettel
    (c) Bottas
    (d) Raikonen

    Quite frankly I think that that was Fernando dragging around that McLaren. This is where the driver, who probably knows this circuit better than anyone else out there, has been sufficiently enough of an organic component to climb around the deficiencies in the car.
    The Old Republic was a stupidly run organisation which deserved to be taken over. All Hail Palpatine!

    Hi bro's, I'm backing The Boss, but man it is close. It could be decided by strategy, or a safety car!

    Afternoon dawgs.

    I would love Fred to get a great launch and mix it with Bulls. He has done an awesome job this weekend.

    Fingers crossed for points for him.

    Palmer really is sucking at the moment. Be amazed if he see's out the season sadly.

    Lets hope for an exciting race. Hoping for a Lewis or Kimi win to really keep this season neck and neck all the way

    We have seen in recent years the leaders lapping most of the field. Will it be the same today?

    (Apart from last year when Merc crashed out)

    Whoops. Clumsy start.

    Vettel leads by a mile and may well run and hide again today.

    Kimi & Max out really
