Qualifying Day

I was up and breakfasted ready to watch the final practice for the GP today. 10:00am until 11:00am on the red button. I watched it with great interest, and based on that, I changed my Fantasy Formula One team to reflect my thoughts on how the grid would line up.

I took out Glock, and added in Webber. Webber has been performing well in the races compared to Vettel. I know that Vettel won in Shanghai, because I was there at the circuit when he did it. However, of the 7 previous races, Webber has beaten him on 5 occasions. Webber’s qualifying performance has not been as good as Vettel’s, but even so, Webber has performed better in the races. Whether it is a better strategy, or Webber is much more consistent over a race distance, I do not know, but I think it is worth a shot. The only person I have to beat in the Fantasy F1 is Nige…

I am slightly disappointed with Button’s performance given that Barrichello is second on the grid. They both have the same amount of fuel on board (657.5kg), so it is not a fuel load thing. The worrying thing is that Vettel is 9kg heavier than both the Brawns. Maybe the Red Bull will be harder on tyres, and Button will manage to force his way through.

Not too geeky I hope…

Exercises and TV followed the GP Qualifying, and then a pint of Guiness (medicinal), and a glass of wine with dinner. The evening was rounded off by watching “Have I Got News For You” on BBC2. A repeat of course.
