"Because We Are the Only Reasonable Voice in F1 at the Moment"


Live: Hungary - Qualifying

Published

By Christine Blachford

Qualifying is our favourite part of the weekend, so we're hoping for good things from these three knockout sessions.

Weather Update

The weather was cooler at the start of the day, following rain overnight, but it seems to be getting warmer by the minute. There is still quite a lot of wind around though, which may or may not affect the drivers.

One to Watch

Button finished FP3 down in 17th, and whilst Brawn aren't about going for quick times, it's worth keeping an eye on them to make sure the hotter temperatures are actually helping them out.

Predictions Please

Who will get pole position for the Hungarian Grand Prix? How far will Alguersuari get? Can Force India make it into Q3? Will we see any big names dropping out early?

    nope not a driving lesson unfortunately :( next one is next thursday :( but it's 2 hours again so i'm very excited :D

  • #13 - Scott Woodwiss said: 25/07/2009 at 12:04:07

    Just looked at FP3 results. BMW in 2nd?! Blimey, the ex-frontrunners are making a comeback. It's good to see McLaren at the front again, if a little weird seeing as I'm used to seeing Red Bull and Brawn there these days.

  • #14 - Scott Woodwiss said: 25/07/2009 at 12:04:40

    Buemi in 5th too. That's surprising.

    remember it's only FP3... the red bulls and brawns are probably much faster than they were in FP3...

  • #16 - Rich said: 25/07/2009 at 12:06:02

    1 Webber
    2 Hamilton
    3 Barrichello
    4 Kovalainen
    5 Vettel
    6 Massa
    7 Rosberg
    8 Button
    9 Heidfeld
    10 Raikkonen

    Jaime will be last and Buemi second last.

  • #17 - Scott Woodwiss said: 25/07/2009 at 12:06:19

    Also have to say the STR looks awesome with the Red Bull update package, especially in their livery.

    They look good, but I still think they will be at the back of the grid - overall they have the two youngest and most inexperienced drivers on the grid, neither of which have had stellar careers too date. BMW may well be the slowest car but they have two very good drivers so they will be ahead.

    It's because this is the first year he's had a car that's not the best in the field. He's had to contend with life near the back of the grid which has meant he's had to change his mindset, and it's been for the better.

    Most basic cable and satellite packages have SpeedTV. It is not on free TV. (Fox carries a four races a year but they are on a extreme tape delay.) For example, I pay about 30 pounds a month for my digital cable package which gets me about hundred channels which include SpeedTV and SpeedTV in HD.

    I rent a house with two other bachelors in a neighborhood that overlooks the southern reach of Puget Sound. That the view behind my TV this morning.

    I love living by the water, it's nice to just have a cup of tea and sit and look. I can't wait til I go stay with my parents for a week, we like to sit on the deck and watch boats go past :)

    Reckon they're annoyed they got rid of Bordais? At least he'd have had the chance of a point with their amazing new car....

    But Buemi has been faster than Bourdais in all but two qualifyings!

  • #363 - David in NZ said: 25/07/2009 at 13:16:35

    am impressed with kimi though. fab time.

    But Ferrari would be right to be nervous with the track still rubbering in.

  • #601 - Rich said: 25/07/2009 at 13:40:39

    Mine too. Not looking as likely as I'd hoped.

    If they can get in Q3 is it worth them going light? Or do they use KERS?

Is that car withdrawn or can they put in another driver? It's been a while since something like this has happened thank heavens.

    let's play eye spy for 3 hours....

  • #1287 - Alex Andronov said: 25/07/2009 at 14:36:11

    So, if I can say pole position, that means technically I am multi-lingual :)

    Good point :)

  • #1288 - Rich said: 25/07/2009 at 14:36:12

    all renault engine podium

    I think this will be the last race for PK - difficult to explain why he is 15 and the other renault-powered cars are 1-2-3!

  • #1289 - guille2306 said: 25/07/2009 at 14:36:16

    8. Jenson Button, Brawn-Mercedes - 1?22.511

    If Jenson is not extremely heavy, they're in big troubles... 1 sec!!!

  • #1290 - lou said: 25/07/2009 at 14:36:18

    we dont get a goodbye from Jake? :(

  • #1291 - Kathi said: 25/07/2009 at 14:36:19

    and qualifying is qualifying in germna

    It's Qualifikation, but we tend to use the English expressions.

    Now that is an amazing idea

  • #1295 - Felipe Leite said: 25/07/2009 at 14:37:06

    And Danish...

    Pole position is pole position in portuguese as well

  • #1296 - RG said: 25/07/2009 at 14:37:08

    He said goodbye at the end of the programme.

    Gavin to use your expression, that is five pints of awesome.

    And german apparently...

    In german it's called:
    Alonso auf der Pole Position.

  • #1300 - Rich said: 25/07/2009 at 14:37:39

    I have felt that the brawns were in more trouble than we generally thought.

  • #1301 - lou said: 25/07/2009 at 14:37:51

    end of the programme? there was an end?

  • #1304 - Jon Waldock said: 25/07/2009 at 14:38:12

    I'm off too. I'm glad we got some comedy at the end of Q3 to lighten up the mood after the anxiousness at end of Q2.

    See y'all tomorrow.

  • #1308 - Jon Waldock said: 25/07/2009 at 14:38:37

    Too late now. Car 3 will not run.

    Too late I believe. (but then I'm off to bed - what do I know? :) )

  • #1312 - Amy said: 25/07/2009 at 14:38:58

    I should go to bed what with the getting up early tomorrow but I must do the weights wait.

  • #1319 - Chris said: 25/07/2009 at 14:40:04

    Too late now. Car 3 will not run.

    Fair enough. What will they do tomorrow, just leave his spot on the grid empty?

  • #1320 - Scott in Italy said: 25/07/2009 at 14:40:09

    Did the DB go down ever so briefly there?

  • #1327 - lou said: 25/07/2009 at 14:42:00

    oh.. that explains my confusion.

  • #1328 - Scott in Italy said: 25/07/2009 at 14:42:02

    8th isn't exactly alright, lou. they'll need a bit of help to best RBR from there tomorrow.

  • #1330 - me said: 25/07/2009 at 14:42:22

  • #1337 - RG said: 25/07/2009 at 14:42:51

    i'm sure they are fundamentally alright..

    I think so too. It was just a rear suspenion failure on Rubens that probably ruined the chance of Button doing anything since they were massively nervous.

  • #1338 - Journeyer said: 25/07/2009 at 14:43:14

    So what's the point of a reserve driver if you cant use him tomorrow?

    If a driver cannot run from the Friday or earlier, they can get someone else to drive.

    Putting a driver who hasnt driven a car in anger in a very long time into a race where he hasnt driven the circuit?? sounds like a pretty stupid thing to do

    I like your positiveness, in all honesty Red Bull has been as competitive, other than the first race. It is clear they are now significantly faster. Brawn have to ensure Jenson scores enough points to keep the championship chances up. There is little chance of a Brawn podium tomorrow. Currently its Red Bull then Macca - I really cannot work out just how fast the Renault really is as Alonso can pull tricks out of the hat like no other driver.

  • #1356 - Scott in Italy said: 25/07/2009 at 14:46:59

    I am really not happy to see Jenson's championship hopes fade away because they could not keep up the development. I think we may find that Jorg Zander had a bigger role in their initial success that is being acknowledged.

  • #1382 - RG said: 25/07/2009 at 14:52:57

    not ant. however, much better than hill, or anyone else they could've got.

    he lacked excitement, but every call he made was a good one.

    i suppose Brawn had to fall apart one day :( stupid stupid Hungary. stupid stupid boring horrible track... Jenson was really looking forward to this weekend too :( grrr.

    Every team is allowed one bad race. Still, tomorrow is supposed to be warmer.

    I am really not happy to see Jenson's championship hopes fade away because they could not keep up the development. I think we may find that Jorg Zander had a bigger role in their initial success that is being acknowledged.

    it's one bad bad quali... he's not lost it yet.. there is still plenty of time... it's not like there are just 2 points in it or anything. plus Jenson's done well here before... it's not absolutely impossible to overtake.

  • #1400 - Rich said: 25/07/2009 at 14:56:45

    Button: they had to change a part and he has 4 laps more petrol than originally planned

    This could actually work in their favour providing Jenson can keep in touch with the cars in front.

    This weekend was I thought to be a BIG Brawn update?

    it was supposed to be an update.... each race they've had updates... they have a new front suspension i think... and an alteration to the rear wing, with a few other small bits... they aren't giving up though. Since they've been in Europe each race they've had something else for the car.

    - Piquet Jr and BMW had rubbish sessions

    Indeed, but starting from 8th, Jenson can't afford to lose any more places. If anything, at least all the KERS cars are ahead of him, but that won't help him make up any places at the start.

    That is why he was taken to hospital - he will be under obs for 48h if they have any sense, with CT scans to check for any bleeding - haemorrhages can be treated if they are caught early enough.

    he'll be fine. He'll have a great strategy and he'll be fine.

    If Jenson can get fifth place it will be all that can expected unless their are retirements in the cars ahead of him. I think Webber could get his second win the RBRs are looking really competitive. Fairly sure Fernando will be on fumes to get initial track position.

    No one. Car 3 is not running anymore this weekend. But Badoer may be the one to take over Massa's car if he can't race at Valencia.

    Had it been any time prior to qualifying, then the reserve driver (in this case Badoer) would have been used. A new car could have been scrutineered at the start of Sunday morning and Ferrari would have had two cars.

    As it stands, it depends if Car 3 is deemed to have qualified. If so, then in theory a replacement would be possible.

    Hmmm... I think Fernando is on a legit, if light, fuel load. If FA can't win, Jenson will be hoping Lewis can. If it has to be an RBR, he'd be rooting for Webber.

    I think they might keep him under observation a little longer - depends how much concussion and the initial results of the scans etc - poor Felipe that was a nasty accident.

    It nearly happened in France 2002. If I remember rightly, the only reason Heinz-Harald Frentzen didn't get to replace Giancarlo Fisichella was because some of the other teams objected on the grounds that Frentzen was technically still contracted to Arrows at the time.

    Reserve Driver rule Fail.

    it's always been the case, gavin, that they can't replace a driver post-quali. it's not safe to do so, either, given that the reserve driver wouldn't have been able to run a lap.

    What's the point of having one then?

    What's the point of having one then?

    If the incident happens on Friday or during testing (as it did with Ralf or Montoya in the past), then the reserve driver can take over.

  • #1480 - Scott in Italy said: 25/07/2009 at 15:16:10

    commentary on a event when they know what happens is usually awful and always gives the game away. Remember these guys are watching from a studio in Sydney and probably have no-one at the track to tell them what is going on...

    it was my crazy idea to comment post-race, not amys ;) I've heard the f1 guys in oz. they're not great and you are right gavin - they've got no source at the track, unless peter windsor is still available.

  • #1481 - Gavin Brown (RubberGoat) said: 25/07/2009 at 15:16:11
    It nearly happened in France 2002. If I remember rightly, the only reason Heinz-Harald Frentzen didn't get to replace Giancarlo Fisichella was because some of the other teams objected on the grounds that Frentzen was technically still contracted to Arrows at the time.

    No idea mate, ask Alia :)

    I could forgive them if there weren't people from all over the world on this very thread whose commentators knew what was happening.

  • #1483 - Rich said: 25/07/2009 at 15:16:22

    In case of incidents in the practice or driver illness before qualifying.

    do we know why he hit the brakes but didn't lift the throttle.

    I don't know, but if I remember correctly, the left side of the brain usually controls the right side of the body and vice versa. F1 cars are left-foot braking and Felipe was hit on the left-hand side of the head. Therefore the right-hand side of the brain would in theory have sustained less damage from the debris impact.

    i'd be surprised if they don't have one or two guys watching illegal feeds of the bbc coverage to pass them notes. but they've never done it so why would they start now.

    they are in contact with the bbc throughout the race apparently, in the past they have reported on news very quickly as it comes through.

    that's correct... i did it in psychology this year ;)

    The replacement could theoretically have happened after final free practise (because that was when Giancarlo got injured), but the attempt to replace with Heinz-Harald only occurred after qualifying. Bear in mind that it was the race when the Arrows drivers pretended to try to qualify in order to keep the team going another few weeks and therefore no attempt could have been made to obtain Heinz-Harald until the Arrowses were disqualified for being too slow.

    The brains wiring is like that but the body could go into a brace in which case both pedals could be depressed. Given such a hit, there would have been momentary brain fade.

    That is also possible. Brains are really complicated things...

    It could have just been a reflex gone wrong?

    they only do the bits after the ad breaks and when they cant get legard + brundle, which would've been the case during the bit where EJ etc were talking. They should use 5Live more often :D

  • #1498 - Alianora La Canta said: 25/07/2009 at 15:21:21

    But it was Massa who qualified, not Badoer?

    It was. However, non-qualification of the driver can be waivied if every team manager agrees. If even one objects, the replacement can't happen in this situation.

    in that case i'm worried about his wrists, if he hadn't released the wheel.

  • #1500 - Rich said: 25/07/2009 at 15:23:29

    In the case of cats falling from a second floor compared to a fifth floor - they are more likely to survive from the fifth, because they initially brace themselves with more injuries occurring, from a higher fall they relax before hitting the ground at terminal velocity which in both cases would be similar.

    They've probably also got one or two guys with Kangaroos, in which case the Five Live commentary is on there. If it's good enough for the pit wall (Force India had someone on there using one and sending a message about the weather to the Five Live team this morning), it's good enough for commentary teams.

    he was moving his arms up and down when we saw him on tv. when i fractured my wrist really badly i could hardly move my arm up and down when it wasn't in plaster....not sure he will have broken anything...

    I have been told that if you are going to crash, let go of the wheel. He may have broken them then?

    as amy was saying, they've got connections with the bbc but australian crews for most sports can't afford to be there or have people there so they really just "steal" others for a few minutes when they're not doing their committments for their own networks.

    i suppose it depends if he had had some sort of sedative by then and therefore wasn't fully aware of the pain or something... but i fractured my wrist pretty badly and moving it without support was agonising.

    he does the pre recorded 'windsor report' on a sunday, then they do a live cross to him just before the race. All the interviews with the drivers they show from after qualifying filmed in the holding pen are done by him as well with his ONE microphone.
