    Don't expect much excitement around this one in Australia, given the time difference. Shame because the Circuit of the America's is a great circuit.

    Vettel has a 3 place grid penalty for not slowing down for Red Flags, which means that Hamilton will surely claim a 5th world title in Austin this weekend. Vettel needs to place in the Top 2 if Hamilton wins to be mathematically in the championship, but in reality this was decided weeks ago when Ferrari stuffed up a front row lockout at Monza.

    Race details for those that don't sleep

    Qualifying: 8am EST (5AM WST) - Late qualifying in Austin (4PM local time).
    Race - 5am EST (2AM WST)


    There will be plenty of rain which could make things interesting, but could also make overtaking more difficult and less likely.

    Max runs wide in Q1 and looks to have broken his car

    Edit: Yep, broken rear suspension

    I do feel for blokes when their car fails due to something mechanical and out of their control (even Max), but he stuffed that one up.

    Max was unlucky given the number of cars that were going wide around that part of the circuit.
    Lewis had all 4 wheels off the track in his pole lap. Wish they were stricter on that

    Nice by Kimi. Good start by ADR for a change too.

    Oops, tangles with Vettel.

    Would have liked to have seen it on replay. Don’t know how you can go from 18th to 9th in a lap (unless it’s a video game!).

    Remember 4 seperate cars had collisions on the first lap, and Vettel spun. That’s 5 without even doing anything.
