    Hmm, Horner said not, according to the Beeb –

    Horner said Red Bull would continue with Renault next season but admitted the team were looking at other options beyond that.
    However, he dismissed the idea that Red Bull could build their own engine as “highly improbable”.
    He added: “First of all we need to see what the plans from Renault are. A team like Red Bull isn’t short of choices but we want to make sure we’re competitive for the long term. Obviously designing and manufacturing our own engine isn’t currently part of that plan. We have no desire to be an engine manufacturer; we want to work with a strong partner.”

    I hope Nico Rosberg wins this year’s F-1 title.

    Definitely not that bloke Nicole Scherzinger whatever …

    Would be nice for Button to win this weekend.

    Money has to be on a merc or maybe a Williams I guess though. If not a British Driver then hopefully it will be a Williams.

    For sure I think Hamilton will win. I read for sure on the BBC this morning that he has sacked Ayrton Senna as his hero for sure and employed Muhammed Ali instead. Sometimes a change is what is needed for sure and I think imagining that he is Ali will for sure give him that extra speed that imagining he is Senna failed to do for sure.

    Rosberg to emerge from the weekend as the clear winner cementing his position at the head of the championship.

    Even if Hamilton wins Rosberg will be close behind, decent chance Hamilton delivers the s in the s*** or bust game.

    It’ll be interesting to hear the explanation /excuse for that decision.

    Advantage Nico

    Christ, there’s an error of judgement for you! Rosberg will be piddling his pants laughing.

    Kudos to the boy for putting himself in front of the media though.

    Kudos? Usual performance IMO. DC was polite but old Lewis needs to read a bit of Kipling.

    Chris Martin third. Good effort

    Jeez – would you really rather have the sort of dull corporate drone that just hides all the emotion that goes along with being a highly competitive racer? Nah, I meant Kudos to him for coming out and not hiding the fact that he was utterly gutted about having made a stupid mistake that hands the advantage to Rosberg again. While the media stuff is ‘mandatory’ it’s not unknown for there to be a big delay while the team brief them about what to say (looking at you Red Bull).

    Anyhow, bet he’s doing a rain dance in his motor home this morning. He’d love it to pour down after Rosberg’s just stopped for tyres but that’d mean Lewis not trashing his tyres first… which is unlikely.

    I feel for him but it was an amazingly stupid thing to do. At least we’ll have the spectacle of him nailing it from the start [probably followed by something breaking/pit stop error putting him even further back].

    Given up on him. So much talent and half a brain.

    “I think about Muhammad Ali,” Hamilton told BBC Sport.
    “He sat on the rope and let [Foreman] have the upper hand until he decided it was the right time to turn it around.”

    Thing is, Nico’s no dope.

    Oh-oh – keep that quiet. He told me it was only your approval that was keeping him going.

    Well that was a big crash, the Ferrari looks horrifically unstable.

    Try driving over a bump at 100mph+ and see how stable anything is. Hope kimis OK but I think this makes it more likely he’ll call it a day soon.

    Anyhow Lewis going to hope he can cruise past the 2 mclarens in a couple of laps if he’s got any chance of staying in touch with Nico.

    I don’t really see that Hamilton is any better than the others in this regard. Webber spoke his mind, Riccardo is always grinning from ear to ear, Kimi says little but doesn’t care, not that we hear him or Alonso much this year. Ok Vettel is a bit dull but we must allowances for his nationality. Rosberg, just comes across as calm and rational to me. There isn’t always something interesting or controversial to say.

    Well this is looking fun! 48 laps and 4 seconds in it, let’s see what happens πŸ˜€

    I wish someone would gve Alonso a decent car. We need to see the top drivers fighting it out at the front on equal terms, not this two-horse procession.

    Yes. Hopefully he will close the gap to 4 and it’ll be game on again.

    That’s more like it! Fantastic battle between Alonso and Vettel! Vettel clearly faster, but Alonso is so good at defending (rember him v Schemacher all those years ago). If only this were for the championship though.

    Exactly. Super happy about this so far!!

    Great race, good show down the entire field. Glad to see the championship getting closed right up.

    Good result for Button as well, shame he didn’t have another lap…..

    What have all the grid girls got on, is that the new british national uniform?
