Re: Chinese Grand Prix -12-14 April 2013 [Race 3]

Can someone explain to me the reason they wait until the very last moment before going out to get their qualifying times? It only needs a minor problem, or traffic, and they miss their chance for another lap. There must be a reason for it as they all seem to do it.

Pretty good result today

With problems at Red Bull and cannot imagine the environment between the 2 RBR drivers is quite tense...this can only be a bonus for other drivers.

Ferrari and Mercedes in particular looking very fast today!

This strategy can work well if you put in blisteringly fast lap with no mistakes then it leaves no time for anyone else to have another go, then they've got Pole, job done! It's a gamble and wouldn't say any driver could pull it off e.g. drivers that are not always consistently fast. Sometimes the track also gets faster the more rubber that's laid down so lap times get faster.

What I don't like about Q3 is that drivers can chose not to go out or set a lap time, as was the case with Hulkenburg and Vettel today.

With F1 the way it is in modern times, it's so much about strategy and team strategists calculating when to go out for qualifying or in a race calculating pit stops but this again changes in the race according to what everyone else is doing and how you can pull one over faster and better than anyone else to push you forward.

See what happens in the race tomorrow

Looking forward to another exciting race, I have now placed my vote NH, and have gone for Vettel, I know it's early days but it's done now.
