Qualifying today was good, to bad about the stupid penalties, it hurts the driver more than the team.

Something occurred to me as I watched the race from last week.  Vettle moved up through the field like they were driving a different class of car. What's the chance he wrecked intentionally at the end of the race in an effort to hide something that would not have passed tech inspection? I don't know if team prancing horse is that shady,but it would be a pretty sneaky way to get a hell of a lot of points from the back of the pack.

The top teams are quite capable of moving up through the field like that.  They are just that much faster than the slower teams.  The back half of the teams are are almost 2seconds slower a lap than the top teams.

Track Record for Pole Position today.  That was an impressive lap.   I love how the one section of the track is just back and forth turns which are very smooth. 

That one corner can take out anyone tomorrow, so it's going to be a good race with the possibility of some first lap antics with some fast cars starting from the back.

WOW, another Ferrari disaster.  Hamilton extends his lead and Bottas is only 13 points behind Vettel now. 
Räikkönen drove an amazing race, to claim much needed points, but the top 4 were just too fast for him to break into that group.
There was some good wheel to wheel racing mid pack today as well.   Team Pink played nicely and finished next to each other with a solid performance and had one hell of a first 1/4 of the race.

Like the NBCSN commentators said, it's going to be a pretty bad day tomorrow at Maranello  Italy.
The Red Bull boys did good again today, and team Hass was in the points with both drivers.
Hope Austin does not get rain for the week like last year, looking forward to that event.

Bottas came real close to steeling third.

Ferrari is pretty much flushing this season down the crapper.  I don't think I will be buying one of their cars anytime soon.  You know assuming I could afford one.

Just got through watching both races.  Red Bull has been drinking some of their product and got wings :)  Ferrari is in trouble for sure.  Perhaps they are trying to tweek a little too much out of their engines.

Great race today, lots of excitement and controversy.  During the pre-race show they played the National Anthem.  Everyone in the stands, on the grid, everywhere were on their feet.  Not a knee to be seen anywhere.  Amazing when you consider there is only 1 American team, and a few team members mixed amoung the 20 teams.
