Shattering.... :(

Tough to watch the 2nd half of the race. So bloody close! Dont no if he'll get another chance like that. Could change teams with the bitterness growing toward the end of the season. Not impossible to see mark replacing Massa in a red car or even the great schuy in a silver one.

Why didn't they pit under the safety car?

they were dumb - but hindsight's 20:20

again in hindsight, qualifying killed him. apparently they just couldn't get any heat into the tyres during his sessions, and that basically robbed him of the half second Vettel had on him

result sucked, but its one of the things thats great about motor racing - anything can happen on the day

Tiger 74 is spot on. Even if he'd pitted under safety car it may not have changed the result.

While the Yas Marina circuit looks spectacular its producing disappointing racing for a new track with few over taking opportunities if any.

Here's hoping Mark can finally win in Melb next year at least!

Been watching this year folks? Tough to watch the little turd dominate so far this year although the racing has been brilliant. Maybe one day Mark will get some luck (good luck that is) one day.........one day.

Webber has had no luck this year. KERS always down, tyres just haven't worked, and that pit stop fiasco the other week.

Very pissed off with the rain delay at Canada too. IQ stopped taping while the rain delay was still on and I missed what sounded like a ripper of a race :(

He's the Matthew Lloyd of F1. Yes he has talent and is awesome to watch, but he behaves like a pompous tool and you just want to snot him in the face.

Beautifully put 74, magnificently put in fact.

Hey there,

Anyone else in Singapore this weekend for the F1? If so, any suggestions for a venue to watch footy finals from? Too many people to squeeze into my hotel room :)

Vroom vroom.

Clark quay is your best bet. Pub called Bungy Bar near the reverse bungy machine. It might be tough going as the rugby world cup is on and that might get priority.

Failing that, Boomarang bar and restaurant at robertsons walk will have it. Some of the brewerks bars too.

Bring your umbrella.

Absolutely sick and tired of seeing Webber losing 1, 2 ,3, even 4 places going to the first corner of a grand prix. It happens every time.

Was a massive F1 fan but can't watch Mark Webber being screwed by his team while the dwarf goldenboy gets all the accolades.

Yeah, I have to put down my port/cup of tea whatever for every start & watch through my fingers, its so frustrating! :mad:

Its the 'there are no team preferences' line that kills me, when the truth is far from that thanks to the DR Helmut toolbag that runs the ship. I had to think after singapore though how expectations have changed. 3 years ago id have loved seeing Mark get a podium, with his lack of a win this year the feeling has changed. Still happy but really want to see him take a chequered flag.


2 TV's set up for sunday with Bathurst all day switching to the F1 & wallabies qtr final on the other, beautiful ;D

Scary conditions at Spa tonight. Watching the Porsche series….pissing down with rain. Lights on. Hopefully there’s no big accidents in the F1. Eau Rouge looks incredibly dangerous.

Nearly a 10year bump. Impressive

Daniel Ricciardo!
Yeah awesome effort. Great qualifying performance and he took Verstappen at that start and basically led every lap except for a couple after he pitted. He had them covered and it was a genuine win.

First win for the once dominant McLaren team since 2012!
