Chance of rain each day. That would be fantastic!

Even if HAM ends up winning WDC, I'd at least like to see it come down to the last race or two. That would require something happening to him here...

As I said in the STR thread, I think Haas could come up big this weekend at their home GP. Reason being: with two new drivers on the grid, new-driver-heroics are certainly possible, but the more likely scenario is the new drivers will be slightly off pace while they learn the machinery. In order for this to work Haas has to get the tires to work which is something they have struggled with.

If it rains it would be a good day to see how Max would do.

I hope Vettel can win one, and Hamilton breaks down just to make the title fight interesting. Or a wet race is always good!

OT, I hope Kubica did well in the Williams test session, it would be good to see him back and Williams could make a special steering wheel to help out his right wrist.

Kubica's return adventure is like gossip central in F1 circles. The same might be said for McLaren dumping Honda for Renault.

It's too bad that the only way a driver can win is to have the one an only best car on the grid while having the second best car as a teammate with orders to behave.

I also hope VET wins and HAM breaks down...during a wet race.

I'm not buying into the whole Kubica thing yet. I'd rather see Di Resta in the seat.

If Kubica continues to test well which he's doing and he brings enough sponsor's money the seat will be his.

I think all this talk about Kubica is a lot of wishful thinking and nothing more. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy. But he's 32 years old, and has been out of Formula 1 since he almost got his forearm ripped completely off in February 2011. So while it's always nice to see someone recover enough from an injury of that magnitude, I wouldn't get my hopes up of him remotely going anywhere in the sport of F1. At best he'll be making good on a promise to return, that he made shortly after the injury. And everyone likes to see that. Besides, Renault currently has far more problems being competitive, than Kubica could ever hope to save them from.

Strange, but it seems that Williams has a penchant for injured drivers overcoming adversity.
Massa came back from dain bramage a few years ago when a suspension spring hit him in the head.
I've always admired Kubica's intense desire to overcome the odds to become an F1 driver. When he started out, he was considered too big to be in F1. He took on a serious diet and workout regimen to lose weight, and became a competitive F1 driver. His determination to remain a racing driver after his crash I think makes him legendary in his will to overcome.

I agree with billt460, I'm not convinced he will be able to perform at the required level on all circuits in all conditions.

Flawless again from Lewis.

Bottas again lets him down.

Verstappen fantastic again. It would be great if he replaced Bottas at Mercedes or Raikkonen at Ferrari.

I’m wondering how much they paid Wet Willie to stand like an ornament in the hot Texas sun?
