Formula 1 2012 season

Yes racing fans it's that time of the year with the start of the first 2012 practice session less than 24 hours away.

Let's hope that this year won't be the same whitewash as the last year.

I'll now close the pre-season thread

I won't spoil the page with a vote so who do you want to win and who do you think will do well..

I've gotta go for Hamilton for the Championship but would love to see Paul di Resta do well this year.

Re: Formula 1 2012 season

Vettel has got to be the logical favorite. I'd prefer Button myself. I also hope for a strong showing from Hamilton and Webber.

I'm a Lewis fan but after meeting Vettel last year i find it impossible to hate him now, He's just such a nice bloke

Vettel is only the favorite as long as he has the best car. I think with even cars both Hamilton, Button, and quite a few others could wipe the floor with him.

Re: Formula 1 2012 season

Said before, and I'll say it again. ABA. Anyone but Alonso. Would like to see British drivers doing better this season, and hopefully someone other than Vettel winning the title.

Re: Formula 1 2012 season

Now that was a bit of a shock Q1..

Raikonen out (slowed down and crossed the line to late for another lap and then ran wide ) yet his team mate Grosjean gets through to Q2 in 3rd place.... and Webber/Massa down in 14 and 17th..

Q2 should be interesting.. Great start to the new season.

---------- Post added at 06:28 ---------- Previous post was at 06:25 ----------

Only De La Rosa and Karthikeyan outside of the 107% but last season I don't think anyone got discluded by the 107% rule because of the time

---------- Post added at 06:33 ---------- Previous post was at 06:28 ----------

Oh what a great sight.. Alonso stuck in the gravel He lost it on braking at the end of the pit straight

---------- Post added at 06:34 ---------- Previous post was at 06:33 ----------

Red flagged session, Hamilton just got a great time ahead of Button and Vettel before the red flag

---------- Post added at 06:40 ---------- Previous post was at 06:34 ----------

Is it just me or is that helmet cam on Ricciardo making others queasy!!

---------- Post added at 06:45 ---------- Previous post was at 06:40 ----------

The Ferraris look like they're having major problems with the handling.. They're sliding out of the corners and major downforce issues..

Mercedes and Mclaren do look good atm taking the top 4 spots with Vettel/Webber behind Grosjean who's in 5th

---------- Post added at 06:48 ---------- Previous post was at 06:45 ----------

Both Ferraris out of Q2 with Alonso in 12 and Massa in 16th

---------- Post added at 07:01 ---------- Previous post was at 06:48 ----------

OMG.. what a flyer from Lewis, first sub 1m25s with 1m24.922 seconds, that +0.7 ahead of anyone else

Re: Formula 1 2012 season

Massa is simply average and I could see his seat at Ferrari soon going elsewhere.

Alonso needs to grow up instead of taking a fit everytime HE messes up.

Red Bull seem lifeless with the changes.

Mercedes are going to be in trouble if the cheating accusations are true.

McLaren look to have got it perfect. Come on Hamilton!

The Ferrari is just awful. Poor car this year and this could be a disastrous season for them.

Re: Formula 1 2012 season

Well nothing surprises me about the sulking, surly Alonso and you can be rest assured one thing and that is the Italian press will be tearing strips of them and Ferrari in the next couple of days.
