4.8" of rain expected on Saturday. Might as well cancel qualifying and start the race Sunday (0.46" of rain expected) based on points/previous finishes. Of course what would happen then is that storm would slow down and dump rain Sunday instead of Saturday and then everyone would be saying "why didn't they move the race to Saturday?"

Will they have a dry track for the first time this weekend? In any case, the race won't be decided by who best managed to save the full wets because by the looks of it, they may even start on inters. Also, it's not often they go into a race with a full compliment of unused dry tires. Should be exciting!

That was entertaining - sort of, except for some seriously bone-headed car crunching.

For a minute I thought I was watching a nascar road course. heh Guys went through some money on cars today. Interesting track. Good for Hamilton. I'm not a fan, mostly indifferent, but quite the feat.

Can't get used to any type of racing in the rain or wet. Racing automobiles was designed for dry tracks both for competitors and spectators.

Football in the rain and mud sucks and so does auto racing.

It was a great race! My spot in turn 12 was great, lots of action there! Got to see the Hulkenberg/Ricciardo contact, the Verstappen vs Vettel vs Raikkonen passes with comebacks. It was very interesting how the balance tipped from Red Bull to Mercedes as the track dried up, and also how hard is to get traction on the wet with that much torque in an engine; Alonso was particularly great to watch catching the back of the car in the exit of T12, and Button's lines just look so smooth.

F1 live is a whole different thing, I can't recommend it enough... you just see things that can't be appreciated in TV.

^^cool. Sounds like a lot of fun.

PDD, I don't mind wet racing now and then. Certainly shows who has car control and who does not. Granted luck can make anyone look like a hero out there in the rain. lol

With the thin air of Mexico City (2200+m of altitude) and the ability of turbo engines to keep performing at those heights, these cars are reaching 224mph! And that's with a very high downforce configuration, similar to what they use at Monaco!
