    Redbull is way too fast and the gap seems to be bigger than last year. I am also disappointed by Schumi's performance. Last year was understandable as he was coming back after 3 years and everything was new for him unlike Rosberg, but this year everything's changed and its same for everybody and now his performance relative to Britney is inexcusable. He has to trump Rosberg otherwise it will affect how people look back at his career.

    <!-- Begin Main Box--><!-- title -->Rivals believe Red Bull still beatable<!-- end title -->
    Red Bull Racing's rivals still believe they are in the hunt to topple Australian Grand Prix pole position man Sebastian Vettel in the first race of the season - despite admitting surprise at the speed the German showed as he grabbed pole position.

    <!-- Begin Main Box--><!-- title -->Horner surprised by Red Bull pace<!-- end title -->
    Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner has admitted that he is as surprised as everyone else about the strong form his team's new RB7 has shown in Australia.

    <!-- Begin Main Box--><!-- title -->Lotus receives support from David Hunt<!-- end title -->
    Team Lotus has received a message of support from David Hunt, the man who used to own the name - just a few days after he had hit out at team principal Tony Fernandes.

    @m_waqas
    No, I never forget my deeds, just look at the blog and it mentions something hilarious, Paula got married to her husband, Yeah right so that person was her husband before marriage. Excellent is not it.

    What happened in Qualy was what was predicted by us throughout the testing, RedBull is a monster and especially in the hands of Vettel, Ferrari were caught out by the low track temperature as they can't generate the needed tyre temperature to put a good lap. McLarens have found their 1 sec that they have said they will found as they switch from their innovative exhaust design to conventional exhaust design and new floor.

    Petrov, Kobayashi and STR's are the real surprise of the session, with Petrov outclassing Heidfeld, although Heidfeld was stupid enough to wait for the very last moment to put his first time lap of the session in Q1.

    Michal is not that much off the pace, yes he was not able to make the cut but he was only 0.089 secs off the 10th position in Q2. Now he is on the best place to start with a new set of hard tyres for the race from 11.

    I said it in my previous post, this is not a truly representative grid. Australia usually does throw up surprises. No one was ever in any doubt about the pace of Red Bull but Vettel is not 8/10ths quicker than Webber and that theme is repeated down the grid between team mates. Petrov in 6th and Heidfeld in 17th!

    Alonso said if they had not taken a conservative approach, they would have been 4th on the grid, what ever he means by that. Whether he was talking as a team, keeping the race in mind or he was talking about himself. The cold conditions didn't help them and i suspect the same issue affected Mercedes. Sauber and Toro Rosso are no where near as close to Ferrari and Mercedes as they seem to be here on this track, in fact so much so that they have out qualified a Mercedes

    I would wait at least one more race. the warmer conditions of Sepang, and possibly round 4 in Europe, because China could be cold and wet, before jumping to any conclusions. Racing is supposed to be quite different this year. I can see Ferrari, Mclaren and Mercedes getting together at some point during this season to lodge a protest against Red Bull's front wing, which without a shadow of doubt is flexing and flexing a lot. Pictures can be seen all over websites, none better than the one JA has on his blog. Even pictures posted by genius83 show how low the front wing is when the car is out on track. It could turn into a nasty season of accusations and counter accusations.


    @genius83

    What have you done to Paula and you didn`t even tell us
    Schumacher would have struggled to get into Q3 here anyway, had Rubens not made that rookie mistake and who ever that idiot is driving the Force India. Both cars looked good, especially the Force India. But he, Schumacher is now in prime position, 11th, and he can make progress if racing is anything like it's expected to be this season.

    @m_waqas

    Softs are yellow and hard are silver.

    Good to know you and the kid are both okay. Has Steve been helping you with the kid? I assume it is his

    A special thanks to Eddie for letting us know. You guys had kept it a secret.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Who was the idiot that gave Schumacher a puncture, was it Alguersuari? As Schumacher explained, driving back to the pits with a puncture damaged the floor which ended his race later on.

    DRS didn`t help anyone pass people much this race. Might be more effective in Sepang and China.

    Track temperature was a little higher and Ferrari's pace picked up. One Red Bull was comfortably beaten today, be it that Webber seemed out of sorts but underlines how unusual this race might turn out to be compared to the rest of the season.

    I hate that rule. All Button did was avoid an accident, okay he should have given back the place, but gets shafted with a drive through penalty because both Ferrari drivers pitted Add to that the possible disqualification of Hamilton and ooopsss that won`t be a good weekend for Mclaren. They had good pace through out the race and Bulls don`t have the same race pace as they do in qualifying.

    @BlackEye117

    Who'd they replace him with this year? They were going to get rid of him and partner Alonso with Raikkonen, but Massa then had his accident and it would have been a PR disaster if they had dumped him after his big crash. People talk a lot about how he is not the same driver after his accident, which is bull$h*t. That accident saved his Ferrari career.

    Interesting how both, Mr and Mrs Steve are missing Young Vet keeping them busy or

    3rd would have been sweeter for ALO but again its PET ... he's turning out to be his arch rival ... i think time has come to neutralize him.. should we use Eddie or Hulk ??..

    unf**king believable pace by VET, thats steve's boy.. making him proud ...


    --- text below is not for weak hearts, also applies to steve too (u can skip this part ) -------------------------------

    what i feel is that if we take that unbelievably fast car from VET and give him the Ferrari or Mclaren, he would struggle to finish on podium, cause i think what he's used to is just driving fast on clear track and can't do well in 'wheel to wheel' racing.. he did overtake BUT today in a blinder of a move in just one attempt, but again he's got fastest car and he overtook from outside which was great to see but if he didn't have RBR but a ferrari or mclaren he would have to try hard and it might have taken him more than one attempts, which would eventually frustrated him and he might have ended it by crashing into BUT...

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    on the other hand, i believe ALO did a reasonably better job.. i think he didn't panic and btw how many pit stops did he do eventually ?? ...

    MAS did a decent job at the start keeping BUT stuck behind him..

    i 've heard steve Slater saying that RBR wasn't even running with KERS ..

    isn't BAR the most experienced guy on track ?? ... and what he did to ROS doesn't reflect all his experience in a good way..

    Where`d that come from Mrs Slatter, Is that a piece by you? Quite unlike you to write so much
    Let's rephrase that by saying, he is used to driving cars designed by Adrian Newey Much like Schumacher was used to driving and winning in cars designed by Rory Byrne.
    But that's no way to put down your new born

    btw how many pit stops did he do eventually ??
    3 stops.
    i 've heard steve Slater saying that RBR wasn't even running with KERS ..
    They didn`t use it after friday because of reliability worries. Worked okay here and might be okay for a few races more but sooner or later they'll need it. Vettel might have been pacing him but they didn't have anywhere near the kind of pace they showed in qualifying.

    Vettel takes comfortable Australian GP victory
    Sebastian Vettel opened his title defence with a comfortable victory in an Australian Grand Prix that proved intriguing, but not did deliver the level of incident predicted with the new DRS overtaking system and Pirelli tyres. Lewis Hamilton coped with a broken floor on his McLaren to take second, but the star of the race was Renault's Vitaly Petrov, who made the most of an excellent start and a fine race drive thereafter to take his maiden podium in third.


    Webber baffled by Australian GP pace
    Mark Webber says he plans to investigate all aspects of his Australian Grand Prix in a bid to understand why he finished a distant fifth, more than 41 seconds behind race-winner and team-mate Sebastian Vettel. The Australian has been uncharacteristically outpaced by the world champion throughout the weekend and was 0.8s slower than Vettel in qualifying as well, and seemed to be much heavier on the Pirelli tyres than the German.


    Barrichello blames tyres for collision
    Rubens Barrichello says he was not trying to pass Nico Rosberg when he made contact with the Mercedes GP driver during the Australian Grand Prix. Barrichello crashed into Rosberg's car in what looked like an optimistic passing move at Turn 3. Rosberg was forced to retire while Barrichello continued only to be forced out on lap 49.


    Petrov: Podium proves car's quality
    Vitaly Petrov believes his third place in the Australian Grand Prix is an indication of what the 2011 Renault is capable of, though he admitted he was not sure quite how good the car was before the race. The Russian qualified an impressive sixth, grabbed fourth at the start, and then secured third by making his tyres last through a two-stop strategy while main rivals Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso pitted three times.


    Horner: Red Bull did not have KERS
    Red Bull team principal Christian Horner revealed after Sebastian Vettel's season-opening victory in Melbourne that the team did not have KERS on its RB7s from Saturday onwards. There was speculation after Vettel took pole position that the team was planning to use an innovative 'start-only' KERS, but Horner told the BBC that the team had been concerned with reliability on its conventional system and merely opted not to run it.


    Sauber duo disqualified from Australia
    Sauber drivers Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi have been disqualified from the Australian Grand Prix over a technical infringement. Perez, making his grand prix debut, had finished in a strong seventh position, one place ahead of his Japanese team-mate Kobayashi.

    Default From Russia with love - Australian GP, Sunday 27 March

    LRGP opened its 2011 account in fine style as Vitaly scored his first podium in just his 20<sup class="typo_exposants">th</sup> Formula 1 race.

    • Both Nick and Vitaly adopted two-stop strategies: soft / soft / hard
    • Nick stopped on laps 15 and 30, while Vitaly made his stops on laps 16 and 36.
    • Vitaly set his best time on lap 55, while defending his third place from Fernando Alonso
    • Vitaly makes history as the first Russian to stand on a Formula 1 podium
    -Formula 1 - Season 2011 -219271

    Vitaly Petrov, P3, R31-03

    I’m delighted to be here on the podium, especially after the winter that we had as a team, which was very tough. Even during testing we didn’t really know where we were compared with the others, but we continued adding new parts to the car this weekend, and they worked pretty well. I made a great start today, which was probably the key for my race because it got me ahead of Alonso and Button, and I was able to run in some clean air and push hard, as well as looking after my tyres. Our two-stop strategy was clearly the right decision and we made it work. I have to say a big thanks to everyone in the team for working so hard and for supporting my over the winter. This result is for all of us and I’m totally ecstatic.

    Nick Heidfeld, P14, R31-01
    Today was a tough race. I’m obviously disappointed not to finish in the points, but it just wasn’t possible, especially after I got hit on the first lap. It’s a shame because I had made such a good start from 18<sup class="typo_exposants">th</sup> to 12<sup class="typo_exposants">th</sup> by the first corner. The damage to the car was quite severe, mostly to the right hand bodywork, sidepod and engine cover. So it wasn’t a strong race for me at all. But, I’m pleased for the team and Vitaly that we have this excellent result today. It shows that we have a competitive car and that we can fight hard this year.

    Eric Boullier, Team Principal and Managing Director
    The podium today is a huge relief and a big reward for all the work which has been done by all the team, and obviously I am very happy. It shows that the decision we took to be aggressive with the design of the car was the right call, and it’s something we can build on going forward. The performance of Vitaly was very strong and it shows that we can deliver strong results this season. In fact, I have no doubt that both our drivers can be fighting towards the front at the next race and that we can build on the competitiveness we have shown this weekend.

    James Allison, Technical Director
    I’m utterly delighted for everyone in the team because it has not been easy getting here. I would be lying if I said I thought we’d earn a podium like we did today, but Vitaly’s place looked very good in qualifying and we knew we were competitive. We thought we were in with a shout of a good fight with the Ferraris, and we did exactly that. Going forward we will have more aero updates for the car in Malaysia, which are worth a few extra tenths. It should allow us to build on our strong showing today.

    Riccardo Penteado, LRGP Engine Support Leader, Renault Sport F1
    A fantastic result for Lotus Renault GP today and a dream start to the season. Vitaly drove a great race, under lots of pressure from former world champion Fernando Alonso, but he didn’t make a single mistake and showed that the car has a huge amount of potential. He drove every lap like a qualifying lap and therefore we were a bit tight on the fuel towards the end of the race, but both he and the team managed the economy very well and finally it worked out how we wanted, in fact even better, with a podium. Nick’s race was compromised by some damage to the car. From the engine side we’re obviously very pleased with how it’s gone today and are already looking forward to Malaysia.’

    @UK
    I have to attend a family event and no not with Paula. So, missed the first 50 mins of the race, don't know what happened in that part only sees the highlights which are just highlights as they don't give a clue how Schumacher have to retire, how Vettel overtakes Button, why Barrichello crash into Rosberg, Why Button got a drive thru penalty. Lookslike I miss the whole action is not it.

    What I have seen raise some questions, so here they are:
    1) Why Alonso needs 3 stops, when he is being considered a good tyre manager, also why he goes in the pits just a lap after Webber, Is he doing the same mistake again that he did in AbuDhabi last year?

    2) How Perez was able to get the tyres to last that much time that he only needs one stop, Are Saubers that gentle on tyres that they could work this kind of strategy in the future too.

    3) DRS situation just got even funnier then previously it was with Perez showing a loop hole, as in the closing stages he was almost behind Massa at the DRS designated corner and Massa dives in the pits while Perez use the DRS coming out of the last corner to work it on the straight. This is something which is not what DRS is intended, Right???

    4) Because of the upper situation another thought just raised in my mind that what if there are more then 3 cars in that DRS designated corner, is not that means that we will have 2 cars with the ability to overtake on the upcoming straight, It would be funny to see 2 cars trying to overtake another car and the result could be all 3 cars outbraking eachother at the next turn and going wide.

    5) The Australian GP Stewards are total idiots, how the hell they miss the Sauber infriction after Qualifying checks when the cars were in the parc ferme'. It looks like some one was shocked with their performance and want to discourage them.

    6) You have said a possible disqualification for Hamilton, may I knows the reason.

    Now some of my thoughts about the race Vettel's win and I am happy, it is also the first time since Turkey 2009 that the Championship Leader has won the race. The Pirelli's proved to be better then the expectations were, yes they have high wear but that was the intentions from the start, still a driver manages the tyres so much that he only needs one stop. Heidfeld not impressed but Petrov impressive.
