2009 Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix

What a strange, strange session...We can't exactly comment on anything, cause we didn't see anything did we...

But for the race, I think Lewis can take the lead by the first corner if he gets an OK start (dirty side is a worry, but remember he did it in Germany and is now one place ahead). Alonso looks good but very light, so I think it's between Hamilton and whichever Red Bull is ahead after T1...

From car camera it looks like the car goes so slowly but then you see the crash and you realise its huge (
Its probably coz we're used to seeing these cars go so much faster and forget what speeds they are doing.

Well when the spring hit him he was doing something like 250km/h so whatever it was it was not slow. But it's confirmed now that he's ok, and there are even talks of him racing tomorrow though that's just rumors.

I gotta say though, it was bloody hilarious to see them all crossing the line and having no idea what the times are, lol you might as well show the M4 or something.

Glad to hear he's ok. How is the car ?
 
That was a crazy session. I was really concerned for Felipe when they revealed he'd been hit by something on the track. Glad to hear he's in a reasonably good condition. The strangest thing is how that debris was at head-height when there were no cars anywhere near him. Was it just bouncing along on its own for awhile?

Good result for Webber and Vettel too. Here's hoping Mark has another good race after his run of 2nd, 2nd and 1st.


With the extended qualifying, we didn't get the post-quali conference in Australia. Does anyone know where I could see it, have a link, or have the ability to upload the conference?

I know from my own recordings, that it looks much, much slower on video, than it is in reality.
 
I think they'll have to use the new chassis for massa, it was quite a crash after all.
2Suspense, he might have a great race and result, only problem Hamilton behind him (

Jesus christ. No way he's back tomorrow.

Get well soon Felipe (baby)!
 
Holy shit.... Really hope Massa is OK
