HAM may be careful about the swearing but the moaning counter does hit the limiter constantly bleating every time he thought he was 'dissed' also adding the struggles from early in his long campaign that many other drivers also had but they didn't whine about it as much.

Congratulations to Kimi.

I believe Kimi will equal Barrichello's record of 322 F1 GP starts on Sunday.
Most of us including me like Kimi very much with his odd bouts of humour together with his realistic outlook on current life in F1, that in itself is worth some form of recognition from the FIA.

So,HAM goes 0.7 secs faster than BOT all of a sudden.BOT asks can I have 'strat 3' and the reply is 'there is no strat 3'.
'' more strat 3 in this run?'' engineer: ''negative, no more strat 3''. woof woof master

Red Bull's were looking promising in early parts of FP3 but afterwards it didnt go that well.. though pole should be something like 1.31.xxx.. even maybe high 1.30.. Merc's were lapping 1.33 - 1.34..

wrong my friend..
Bottas' 0.7 slower lap was in strat 3 as well.. so FP3 fastest times on both Merc's were strat 3.. you can take a look 44:40 of FP3..

LeCrash was very lucky...

MAX back on P3 .
RIC is very fast . The Renaults topspeed looks like warp-speed ...337 km/h on the straight !

Dumbass Bottas parks at the #2 spot. Boy you've been outqualified by a much slower car.
Please give your seat to Russell.

wow i thought for few seconds that Lewis lost the session and it was soo close.. especially after that Renault blocked him..
and yeah having a gap like 0.7 with Bottas.. this place was the track Bottas was the strongest.. Lewis crushed him after a stressy Q2.. but Bottas didnt get it..

last minute changes seems worked for Max.. well done to him for bringing the car to the 2nd grid.. wish Albon could put a better lap..

Renaults look like they re enjoying their time in Sochi.. i hope their race pace ll be good as in quali tomorrow..

for Ferrari's.. this video shows a rehearsal from the past..

yeah just another another example of how easily wrong information can be transferred my friend.. i guess F1 TV is much cheaper than Sky.. there is no F1 TV in UK?

I'll be glad if you're right. Not Max though. And nobody gets hurt (physically).
