Alonso out of FP1 after 3rd turn....really....with an oil leak!!?? Rolling Eyes
This is not Honda's fault.
I point the finger of blame to McLaren mechanics...square and simple Twisted Evil
How many bolts secure the oil pan to casing?  12.....22....I don't care if its 122 bolts.  Make sure they're good and tight.  

"What?.....pardon me?.....you were missing a few bolts and sent him out anyway??!!....Why didn't you speak up...we have plenty spares in inventory"

Unless McLaren mechanics are sending Alonso a "We don't care message"

Alonso 7th in quali. Right on! Hopefully he doesn't get passed on the straight in the race on every lap.

vettel is an idiot if he doesnt know how he lost 8 seconds, the race administrators fixed the race and got hamilton back that time for free by withdrawing the safety car at the right time

if toto wolf had control of the race he would choose to remove the safety car at that exact same time to maximise the advantage and it looked as if mercedes were ready for it, so i recommend an investigation of the stewards

The VSC also ended when Hamilton was in his pit box, so it could have been worse for Vettel.

Either way, what an awesome race. So glad the tyres were changed and we can see drivers pushing hard the whole time again.

actually i didnt even know that the VSC means you have to drive the whole lap under safety car, i thought it was just the section required

so yes mercedes actually screwed up and the stewards saved ferrari (i withdraw the accusation of race fixing), they should just pit a lap earlier and gain 20 seconds (maybe they thought that the safety car would remain for more than a lap later and were trying to buy another lap for the tyres)
