Heeeeyyyyy everybody. There’s some Formula 1 action expected today in the form of the Canadian Grand Prix qualifying. DRS and Canada seems a thrilling prospect, and of course it might even rain!
Please cast your vote in the usual way, or if you cast your vote in an an unusual way then please don’t let me stand in your way.
The Monaco Grand Prix is the crown in the jewel of F1, and it’s the jewel in the crown of SofaF1 too. Why not tell us the order in which you think the jewels will be placed in the proverbial crown this weekend by entering the 2011 Monaco Pole Poll?
Traditionally Spain is the most boring race of the year. But with DRS and the Pirelli tyres will it all be different?
Take a guess and enter the highway to the
Danger Zone Pole Poll
Welcome to the Turkey Pole Poll – that sounds like a good way to start… Also welcome to the European season… well almost… the race track is in Asia but here
Constantinople Istanbul retains it’s role through the centuries of acting as the bridge between Asia and Europe.
Will somebody other than Vettel get the pole? Will the momentum from Lewis’s win carry on here? There is only one way to find out, and that is to watch qualifying and the race. But there is only one way to find out the guesses of a whole bunch of fellow fans and that is by entering the Pole Poll:
Why not? What’s the worst that could happen? http://aaserver.co.uk/widgets/poll2011.cgi?race=24

Oh yeah, theres another race happening this weekend, sorry for lack of China update, been a bit busy!
Anyway, China, Hamilton won it, Red Bull following close behind still, need to get their KERS working pretty soon. Alonso still having problems with his wings.

Turkey race predictions here …
Well, Malaysia arrived pretty quickly after Melbourne. Vettel carried his form to Sepang, although it looks like Red Bull may have a bit of a job sorting out their KERS and i’m sure they will need it, but in Malaysia they still had good pace to keep Vettel ahead of the field and enable Webber to recover from a bad start and set a the fastest lap time. Hamilton and Button seemed to have some good speed too, and the flappy wing thing produced some good overtaking moves all through the field, apart from Alonso whose wing broke just when he needed it to get past Hamilton. Hamilton was going a bit slow due to some strategy/tyre issues when Alonso stumbled across him, Hamilton tried to defend it a bit too much apparently, Alonso pranged him but came off worse, they both stopped again but Alonso came out ahead, only to discover that they were both penalised after the race for their respective misdemeanours. Alonso kept his place though and Hamilton dropped further back to finish 8th, not bad from a front row start!
Talking of results…here is ths SofaF1 Championship table after round 2.
And as a bonus we’ve got two races in two weeks to contend with, and practise in China starts in a few hours time! Don’t forget to get your predictions in before qualifying starts early o’clock on Saturday! You should be able to do that here very soon!
