    @UK
    Thatswhy I say that not all the overtaking is down to the DRS, Barcelona is a good example, Vettel have made 3 1/2 overtakes on his outlap, and he can't use KERS until he came back to start his next lap so his all these overtakes were down to his ability and new Pirelli tyres.

    How about a 5 car crossing the finish line within 0.5 of sec to eachother and Gilles winning it making it one of the most close finish in the history of F1. And I am not talking about overtaking, I am talking about slipstreaming battles which led to overtaking chances. With aerodynamics that part of F1 suffers and thatswhy in rain we have better action then in dry races on the same circuits, because rain negates the aerodynamice advantage and cars have to rely on mechanical grip to stay on the track.

    Remember Spa2008, both the drivers were struggling for grip because of aerodynamics and thatswhy they both have gone of the track many times before Kimi slipped into the wall. Even better example is Kubica and Massa fighting for 7th on Fuji in 2007 Massa have taken a wide line coming out of the final corner and goes off the track, then using that part of the track just comes back with better speed and overtake Kubica before the finish line.

    The director of the movie have said they wanted to focus on Senna/Prost rivalary more then Senna's own life though. They wanted to show the most fierce rivalary of alltimes in F1's history to the average audience and also young F1 fans.

    FP1 - Lotus Renault GP Report

    -Formula 1 - Season 2011 -258294

    Vitaly Petrov, R31-05 Free Practice 1: P2, 1:41.227, 20 laps

    Nick Heidfeld, R31-04 Free Practice 1: P5, 1:41.580, 23 laps

    Vitaly Petrov led the way for Lotus Renault GP on a cloudy first session of free practice for the European Grand Prix on the streets of Valencia.

    Using chassis R31-05, Vitaly went second fastest of the day so far as he worked through the standard programme for the first running of the weekend. His time of 1m 41.227s was just over eight-tenths slower than the fastest set today, showing there is still speed to be found.

    Nick, in chassis R31-04 set the fifth fastest time. Neither driver encountered any problems today and set-up work found improvements in their cars through the session.

    This is the first race weekend where Pirelli’s new medium compound tyre will be faced, so a lot of time today is being spent understanding this tyre on the rapidly evolving Valencia street circuit.

    Fastest today was Red Bull Racing’s Mark Webber with a time of 1m 40.403s.

    Tyre evaluation will be the focus of this afternoon’s 90 minute practice as the drivers the medium and soft compound Pirellis. As with other street course, the track surface is always ‘green’ – dusty, dirty and not rubbered in - for the first session because it is so rarely used but it improves markedly over the course of the weekend.

    Renault hires Wickham as team manager

    Button: We must keep pressure on RBR
    Jenson Button says it is essential that McLaren keeps piling the pressure on Red Bull Racing - because he thinks its rivals are vulnerable to making mistakes when the heat is on.

    Nico Rosberg keeping expectations
    Nico Rosberg says Mercedes GP should not get too carried away with Michael Schumacher's strong showing in Canada a fortnight ago - because the outfit is not yet in the position it wants to be in.

    Button says not in talks to renew McLaren contract yet
    Jenson Button says that talks have not yet begun with McLaren about extending his contract at the team.

    Vettel drove perfectly. Hardly anything to watch in this race about vettel Alonso-Webber fight for 2nd place was interesting. And I feel bad for Massa. BTW he's driving well in last 2-3 races.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?
