What a surprise the same old excuses that McLaren are "struggling to understand the car", really annoys me at this statement, they designed the car and have done testing, how can they not understand the car?????????

Come one, where are the new Button memes about "no balance"?
By the sounds of it, we're going to hear it pretty soon.

Jenson Button admits struggling McLaren may not reach Q3 for Australian Grand Prix

Team way off the pace in practice at Albert Park on Friday

Oh dear, looks like McLaren made a huge mistake in designing a new car instead of evolving the old one.

Yup, I do wonder what are the Red Bull team doing, that the others aren't
My wife said it best, though I'm sure she wasn't the first to say it,
They fuel their cars with Red Bull :p

Hope Kimi has a good season. He's a decent driver but possibly the worst interview. I can imagine reporters cringe when they are told to do interview him.


Interviewing him is like talking to Dr. Sbaitso.

completely irresponsible to start q1 today. everyone was lucky to escape unhurt. the massa crash, the hamilton crash and at the end one car missed gutierrez only by big luck.
if i was race director i wouldnt have started, but simply delayed it till tomorrow when the weather is expected to be just fine.

Q2 and Q3 have been delayed until 11AM local time tomorrow.

GMT: 00:00
Paris: 01:00
PST: 17:00
EST: 20:00

Qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix will be postponed until 11am local time on Sunday morning due to heavy rain showers in Melbourne.
A delayed Q1 managed to take place, but the start of Q2 was repeatedly put back due to the weather conditions.

The decision to postpone the rest of the session was finally taken nearly two hours after qualifying had begun.

The situation was complicated by further showers being forecast, so that even if the track improved, the likelihood was that the rain would immediately return.
Looming sunset added a further pressure, with little daylight left to fit in Q2 and Q3.

Nico Rosberg had been quickest in Q1 for Mercedes, which got its cars out first at the start of the session.

Good start to the season with an entirely unexpected result. Congratulations to Kimi Räikkönen.

I'd love to hear what those claiming Hamilton's team switch is a mistake have to say now.

Man of the race: Adrian Sutil
Reject of the race: Mark Webber. Slept at the start, then trundled around the midfield.

It was a surprisingly clean race, particularly the start. It's great to see real competition with the top position changing repeatedly throughout.

I feel so bad for Sutil, he could have had a much higher result and his team's strategy let him down.

Man of the race : Adrian Sutil. Could not agree more. He drove perfectly, but the strategy in the pits was a complete letdown. Hope this is a lesson well learnt.
