Practice 1

Schumacher did well in P1, within just over a second of fastest in P1 at 7th. And wow, look at Rosberg at 4th fastest. I am also impressed with Di Resta - in the Force India at 3rd Fastest. It will all change as the rest of the sessions progress, but it is an interesting start.

Interesting to see that the two Lotus-Renault's were side by side in the same order in P1 as in the race. It might be something to look out for in the future. As is the same with the Red Bulls, if you were a betting F1 fan, you can nearly always bet on Vettel being ahead of Weber.

Practice 2

Schuey got quicker in P2 but Rosberg shone through, surely a reflection from China result!

Practice 3

Qualifying     12:00

It always comes down to the race. This is where we will see history made. Perhaps we will see a lot of overtaking from Schumacher?

Sun 22 April 2012.
There were a few problems in the race, that had to be sorted by the stewards later. Surprisingly, no-actions were taken in just about every incident. Man of the race for this F1 fan has to be Di Resta for his overtaking of two driver and his best F1 finish to date I think, (6th).

I was not surprised by Vettel being 1st on the podium, but I certainly was amazed at Lotus-Renault getting the 2nd and 3rd podium spots. Where did that come from?

Schumacher voiced his feelings about Pirrelli's tire longevity in an interview for the BBC after the race, saying that it was a major problem that many of the teams complained about; re:- having to manage tires so heavily during every race.
