    Going to be hard not to go with Vettel again. Almost half a second better than next place Webber, it seems nothing can touch him this year.

    It' a lot better now with all the new 'gadgets' - tactics come in to it a lot more this year. Webbers progress through the field in the closing stages of the Chinese Grand Prix to finish 3rd was fantastic to watch.

    The sport badly needs domething to make it more competitive. It has been little more than a procession behind the fastest car for years now, with very little reliance on actual driver skill.

    Have you seen then new 'gadgets' this year?

    i think they need to add guns on the cars and ramming bars to get people out the way, also no run off areas, just a 200ft drop

    It will be an interesting race, let's see what strategies pan out and maybe there might be some shock results.
    Gutted that schumi didn't qualify better but rosberg did a solid job, merc car seems to be working well around the track so might see a rosberg win...if the red bulls crash into each other again

    Yeah, there was talk of Schumacher being pretty fast in practice? He could cause a few problems on the grid - Button was also supposed to be pretty fast in practice wasn't he?

    I think Webber will be out to put his stamp on this year - could have that crash you mention!

    Yeah the mercs and maclrens had pace in practice, I think even Ferrari had a decent long run race pace...so hopefully it won't be as clear cut as vettel walking away with it

    Kobayashi's race could be interesting, he's not shy about overtaking!

    Yes, forgot about him - certainly going to cause a few problems on the grid.

    I'm guessing pink shirt and cyan trousers.

    Urgh. It's the black country Derby at the same time. Might have to have the F1 in the background. Don't mind missing Don Goodman's commentary...

    The only way I can see Vettel losing this is through wrong number of pit stops or something. It's Red Bull's to lose again this race...

    Webber Vs Vettel by the sounds Webber's comments here.

    Should be interesting!

    Well, pretty good but I think Vettel was the winner from the off.

    Any way to stop him?
