Then again cold temps and harder, durable tyres may handicap Red Bull this weekend.
...or the exact opposite, apparently.
Not sure that we're being forced to like the track, but it seems that a lot of people in the paddock might be. For me, there's some good points, but it's no better than India or Korea in the key areas. Still looks and feels (as much as a viewer can feel) like any other Tilkedrome though.
Onto today's action in quali, was surprised mostly by the pace (or lack thereof) of Alonso and Massa, been trying to figure that one out, and i am not sure that it is tyres, which makes it a tough one to consider. The rest was fairly standard, except for a notable performance by Marussia. I've been badmouthing them a lot in the last 18 months but they look to be making progress generally with a huge leap today on top of these small steps forward in recent times, and good on them for that.
