The most interesting time there is Di Resta's with not many laps either.

Schumacher won't be happy as he thought the Pirellis would really suit him better. He only beat Rosberg by 3/100ths.

PDR has impressed me all year really in the few 1st FP sessions he did, I'm looking forward to seeing what Force India do, as Liuzzi has a contract for 2011, but will they honor it.
Other than the first two races, quali in Canada amd Korea, he's not exactly been living up to his potential I dont feel, which is a shame as I like him. Where as Adrian was always able to squeeze just that little bit extra out of the car, maybe it didn't get the results but AS unlike TL got their version of the F-duct to work much better (Although Adrian does have nice big hands to, erm, cover the hole ;) :)) ) and I don't know the stats off the top of my head but I'm pretty sure AS out qualified TL in the majority of the sessions.
I'd like to see PDR do a full season, along side Adrian hopefully.
Although I can't help feeling Adrian needs to go to a better team, I see a potentially good drive in there, and the FI car just went backwards develoment wise after the Bitish GP (with the exception of Spa and Korea), which was a shame.
Ok I'll sut up now =)) =))
I have way too many thoughts in my head =)) =))

The results are a not a good indicator, at this stage , as details of car weights/settings are unknown.

Some teams will have gone for long and heavy sessions to monitor tyre graining/degradation. Some will have had low downforce settings and others will have tried intermediate/wet weather setups.

Still the usual suspects are near the top of the timings except for the 2 McLaren drivers and Webber.

My outside (each way) bet though for 2011 would be Williams. I know - I am a sentimental old fool. ;)

I can't wait for 2011. This year was the best I can remember since the Senna/Prost/Mansell/Patrese days.

BTW Red 5 has won the Championship again. I had the privilege, several years ago, of sitting in Nige's Red5 at a secret location, somewhere in darkest Birmingham while they turned over the engine!! Yeah baby!!! \:D/

I love Nigel, grew up watching him, Dad was always a Senna fan and I was a Mansell fan :)) I tried to find Nige at Silverstone in september (at Le Mans) but we couldn't fnd him :( :(
And I didn't even get a photo of Anthony Davidson either :(( :(( even though he walked right past me :(( :(( (he's really tiny =)) )
2011 should be a great season (fingers crossed).
Well I know for a fact that FI were not going for quick times ;) as I follow them on twitter and they said so =)) =))

I am really looking forward to 2011 as well. I agree with Ian re: this year. It should be even better (and longer) next year \:D/

The BBC better do a nice feature on Adrian Sutil for the Indian GP =)) =))
I don't get to see enough of him in the beeb :((
Although best bit was Lewis in his post Malasian race interview putting his arm around Adrian and asking him if he was flat out after AS kept LH behind him for 20 laps \:D/ :ymapplause: loved it :D .


Anyone know wy Adrian has a big box of money on his little table thing in the garage during races =))
Noticed it during the German GP, camera zoomed in on all this money and a picture of David Hassleoff =)) =)) =)) =))

From Jonathan Legard,

"Rumours still swirl about Massa's future. Told that Sutil lined up to replace him for 2011. Massa to Sauber but plans changed after Spa".

I swear he's been having what James Hunt used to have wen he nipped out to "check the weather". =))

Fernando Alonso says he took great satisfaction from his margin of superiority over Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa this season, with the Spaniard seeing the gap as evidence that he was in his best form yet. "My level of driving is better than ever and I hope I can keep it up next year," he told Onda Cero radio.
http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/88537


Is he taking into account the team orders too? Or has he forgotten?

That was interesting, although I can see why it is how it is. Overtaking at the front is much harder so I'm not surprised that the main championship contenders for the year weren't in there (except Alonso, but we all know that he can't overtake on his own anyway :P ).

In case anyone is interested, it's the Autospots awards tonight.

Live updates here

So far Kamui Kobayashi is the AUTOSPORT.com Rookie of the Year and Heikki Kovalainen's fiery exit from the closing laps of the Singapore Grand Prix is your LG Moment of the Year. And the F-duct won something too.
