Good morning race fans! How are you all today? Its race daaayy, how exciting! Yesterday bought an amazing qualifying session, meaning the stage is set for a brilliant race today. The ever present promise of rain, and the small margins between the top 4 drivers could equal the perfect formula for a wonderful morning of racing.

Before I go into any links today is the last opportunity we have to vote. Vote for what I hear you ask?..

Vote for Amy!!

Vote for Amy!!

It’s getting close so if there is a friend you’ve not asked, or a member of your family.. or even your postman, today is the day! Details on what to do can be found here. Uber Fan Amy needs your help and.. your friends… your parents.. and well, you get the idea.

Yesterday was, of course, qualifying, and my what a qualifying it was! If you missed anything you can find the highlights here and Leigh has done a great round up of all the action here. You can also watch the top three press conference here, if you missed it too.

Oh and don’t forget F1 minute!!

If you’re wondering what’s up with Ferrari’s pace this weekend then well… so are Ferrari. Answers on a postcard to Maranello, sounds like they need our help too!

Ohh and a bit of F1 news, pole position has moved to the right hand side for the race today find out why here.

Time for this week’s inspirational arty links:

• Landscapes really are dramatic and beautiful things.

• Ever wanted some quirky and different shoes?

• I think I want these in my garden.

• Samuel Bradley is a 2nd year student of UCA, and he’s a pretty damn good contemporary photographer.

• Let’s have a photo of Kimi smiling, cause well we don’t have enough of those do we?

• Want a different and cute F1 poster? Think I may have found something for you.

• Finally, if all these links have inspired you to get creative, why now try out the mclaren competition?

I want to end with another link to one of my uni friend’s work. Dom is one of my flatmates (he’s recently joined twitter and everything!) and he’s a lovely guy (he’s letting me use his TV to watch F1 this weekend and everything!). Last term he edited a documentary video and it’s ace. However he’d love your opinions too, so please check it out and tweet him any views please, he’d love it!

I hope you all enjoy the race today, and the rest of this lovely Sunday. See you all in the comments!

    i can't embed images to save my life so Lukeh emailed the code.. i blame him.. :)

  • Mr C09/04/2011 at 23:05

    lukkkeeeehhh!!! it stretched the photo.. :(

    aww. the default image size is 16:9 and the pic is probably 4:3, you just need to enter the correct height accordingly.

    i can do that for you, but given your career path, i reckon you can do that far faster than i ever could.

  • Alison09/04/2011 at 23:05

    I feel committed to the cause, I even pestered my sister in a facebook message to like it and she did :D I'm not sure many of my other friends would respond well to that though....

  • Steven Roy09/04/2011 at 23:08

    i love living with 2 film students :) it's awesome. They're so good at what they do but they are both very new to the world of plugging their work and being on twitter etc.. so am trying to help :)

  • Mr C09/04/2011 at 23:22

    can you teach me?.. cause i don't know what to do...

    no worries. you have the shortcode (it starts with [image]). inside the shortcode is a bunch of attributes, mostly sensibly named. look for the following:

    width="500" height="288"

    375 is the correct height, but it looks like it's missing a final quote mark so isn't being read. ...i think?

  • Steven Roy09/04/2011 at 23:22

    hehe i'm trying my best! :) they're getting there.. slowly :)

    I am sure you will sort them out.

    I seem to remember a conversation with you when you were short of confidence before you went to uni when a few of us were trying to tell you about the advantage you had with people knowing about your stuff on the net and contact with F1 photogs. Now you are seeing how big a hill you could have had to climb

  • Mr C09/04/2011 at 23:24

    it's fab. am reading the comments, but i have no idea what this means:

    The only tiny thing that I noticed is that you can see the ground glass from the 35mm adapter, so maybe next time use one that has a vibrating ground glass instead.

    more to learn!

  • Steven Roy09/04/2011 at 23:27

    Surely vibrating ground glass would show up more?? Not that I understand what they are talking about

  • Bert09/04/2011 at 23:28

    AAARRRGGHHHH!!!!

    Just watching Quali.... FOM, BBC... If you broadcast in HD, don't format 4:3 safe!!!

  • Mr C09/04/2011 at 23:31

    Surely vibrating ground glass would show up more?? Not that I understand what they are talking about

    i can see some dust on the lens at 04:50, i wonder if the vibration thing is a dust cleaner?

  • Mr C09/04/2011 at 23:34

    i can see some dust on the lens at 04:50, i wonder if the vibration thing is a dust cleaner?

    nope, not that, or maybe sort of:

    An interesting idea is to have the ground glass spin or vibrate (in direction(s) perpendicular to the lens optical axis) to effectively erase any crud sitting on the screen (but large particles are going to produce streaks, so it is not foolproof).

  • lou09/04/2011 at 23:35

    w00t! quote marks almost always need to be a matching pair, so it's a good thing to look out for.

    next step is to add your own shortcode from the lower right of the admin page. maybe next week :)

    am assuming it has something to do with the fact our stores give you lenses that don't necessarily go with the camera itself.. but i know nothing about film. He's sleeping at the moment. i'll see if he can clarify tomorrow.. might even get him to tweet.. or even comment on here..

    i really like the video. a couple of shots are trying a bit too hard to be arty, but it's great to discover new things like this in a daily.

    I guess it is hard to impress when you are shooting what is effectively one side of an interview. Seems an odd subject to choose.

  • Steven Roy09/04/2011 at 23:42

    it was their first shoot of uni so am guessing they were trying to impress, I keep telling them to get on social media and plug their work because it's the only way they'll get noticed. Another of my friends who does film is very very good at networking, the short film he shot outside of uni won a small award the other day, and he's shooting another this summer..

    Sam is on twitter - http://twitter.com/#!/Sam_Milletti

    As is his brand - http://twitter.com/#!/millettifilms

    and his film is on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8BrFQtj1-0

    filmed with general stuff he has and no uni things (cause he wasn't at uni when he did it). I keep trying to make my flatmates be more social media friendly like Sam.. :)

  • Steven Roy09/04/2011 at 23:45

    each semester they need to do something different within their group. So last semester Dom was the editor, this semester for their project (which is done with old Bolex cameras!) he was the producer. He much prefers cinematography though. Joe (the film i linked to last week) is the director of his film at the moment and he loves it!

    Am slowly learning about film too.. :) such fun :)

  • Lukeh10/04/2011 at 12:02

    why has hamilton been given a 20 second penalty?

    I assume for weaving on the main straight. When it occured I said in the comments but to be honest it was no worse than Massa against Jenson at Melbourne so I'm not sure why it's been pointed out

    Emmanuele Pirro. He's sensible.

    A decision in the race is impossible for that sort of thing because they need the driver testimony to make a fair judgement. That's been strongly recommended since USA 2003, when Montoya got a penalty for a collision with Barrichello that even Rubens thought was unwarranted.

  • Alianora La Canta10/04/2011 at 12:23

    No. He's a sportscar driver who used to race for multiple teams in F1. Those teams being Scuderia Italia and Benetton, so Ferrari bias is unlikely.

  • Alianora La Canta10/04/2011 at 12:23

    They do in swimming except for black-and-white purely technical cases. They do in football and rugby (that's what those discussions with referrees are about). It's only sports like golf, cricket and martial arts where it doesn't happen.

    No, they're being judged on what they saw. Appearances are very often deceptive. There's no way of demonstrating a collision was not avoidable without asking the participants for example.

    A handball is a black/white technical matter. A collision is not.

    I have watched a lot of football/rugby and i dont think i can remember the ref ever taking the word of a player over what he or a linesman has seen

    I have several times, admittedly at school-level games. Generally by professional level the training of the football referee and assistants far exceeds that of the footballers when it comes to regulations. Also, there are no "grey area" rules in football/rugby to the best of my knowledge.

    This is far from being the case in F1. Ex-drivers are on the panel partly to correct this, but it's only ever a partial fix.

  • Alianora La Canta10/04/2011 at 12:37

    It definitely is not

    In what sense? If a hand touches the ball it's a handball. There may be a decision to make on whether to bother issuing a penalty for it but the event conditions were met.

    That level of certainty can never be reached about whether a given collision was avoidable without driver testimony, and the race cannot be stopped while that testimony is delivered.

  • Alianora La Canta10/04/2011 at 12:37

    I'm sure Jean was definitely in the stewards room demanding something to get back at Bernie

    Max never was but he knew how to pressure people into doing what he wanted without needing to stand over them all the time.

  • Nick10/04/2011 at 12:37

    I don't understand how can compare handball to a 150+ mph collision but fair enough.

    i dont think its that different, You peanalise if it is deliberate/reckless

    you can watch pretty much every relevent camera angle in 90s and make a decision

  • Alianora La Canta10/04/2011 at 12:39

    i dont think its that different, You peanalise if it is deliberate/reckless

    Since deliberation means the motives of the drivers must be known, that means the only possible way of being 100% certain is by acquiring those motives from the drivers.

    In what sense? If a hand touches the ball it's a handball. There may be a decision to make on whether to bother issuing a penalty for it but the event conditions were met.

    There are all sorts of things to consider beyond the fact of contact. Did the player move his hand to or away from the ball? Whether his hand was in an unnatural position. Did he have time to get his hand out of the way? etc

    There are all sorts of things to consider beyond the fact of contact. Did the player move his hand to or away from the ball? Whether his hand was in an unnatural position. Did he have time to get his hand out of the way? etc

    Surely that's only a consideration in terms of issuing a penalty - the handball happened in the first place whatever the answers to those questions was.

    In swimming for example, it's against the regulations to touch the lane ropes. Sometimes the lane ropes get touched without a disqualification being issued (because, for example, the swimmer didn't have enough stroke control to avoid such contact) but because it, like handball, is a black/white technical regulation, it is always known if such a touch happened. For that sort of decision, the stewards are empowered to decide the matter alone and usually do.

    On the other hand, gaining an advantage from improper means on relay changeovers is also a disqualifiable offence. However, for most varieties of improper relay changeover it can be difficult for the stewards to see if Person 2's movement before Person 1 touched is due to setting off early (banned), setting up ready for going (fine) or nerves (ambiguous). For this reason, most questionable relay changeovers are discussed with the team representatives on poolside - and the observations taken into account - before a disqualification decision is or is not issued.

  • Alianora La Canta10/04/2011 at 12:45

    Only in the later years. Max had the tricks mastered well before then...

    Yes. Occasionally the powers-that-be do know to leave something good alone. Occasionally being the operative word.

  • Steven Roy10/04/2011 at 12:48

    Surely that's only a consideration in terms of issuing a penalty - the handball happened in the first place whatever the answers to those questions was.

    Agreed but the decision that results from the fact of contact between hand and ball can be very complex.

    Great idea

  • Alianora La Canta10/04/2011 at 12:52

    Agreed but the decision that results from the fact of contact between hand and ball can be very complex.

    My point is that that sort of complex decision is within the referee's expertise and it therefore makes sense for the referee to decide (with appropriate assistance from the assistants). The referree is not required to use individual player psychology to work out whether the handball occurred in the first place.

    I don't see how something like that can be solved by discussion rather than observation .

    Because the reasons affect whether the event in question took place. Observation alone is by definition not sufficient for such cases. It may be less obvious than with an avoidable collision in F1, but it is the case.

    Because the reasons affect whether the event in question took place. Observation alone is by definition not sufficient for such cases. It may be less obvious than with an avoidable collision in F1, but it is the case.

    But that assumes that the people involved are honest and that is rarely the case in competitive sport. So you end up with a situation where the person who can construct the best case wins regardless of the facts

    With that assumption (which I've found to be most often false, but with a very high-stakes one like F1 is sometimes true), only black/white things are possible. So in the current context that means either no penalties for collisions ever or penalise every collision equally.

    I think it is possible to judge most collisions from video and ecu data. I doubt that in 95% of cases the driver testimony adds anything

    1) I'm not convinced of that

    2) ECU data, for the most part, only becomes available to those outside the teams after the race

    3) I doubt most of the stewards would know how to interpret the ECU data - they'd end up 99% reliant on the witnesses and driver steward to tell them what was going on.

    That was nothing compared to Massa's behaviour in Melbourne or Schumacher's on dozens of occasions. He wasn't even moving to block Alonso. You could argue that it was more than one move but the one move rule was brought in to stop Schumacher chopping people. Before the one move rule that would have been perfectly legal and well within the spirit of acceptable behaviour. The one move rule was designed to stop overly aggressive defending and what happened there was not that

    I don't see any leftward movement at all. If there was any it was so tiny that half the defensive moves ever done in F1 (including at least 5 instances this race alone) should be penalised.

    If the stewards can't even decide a black/white regulation sensibly there's no way I can trust them to decide the grey area ones without the help of those involved!

    Cant imagine a huge amount was gained by having a disposition after the race myself

    He did move once to his left, then right again, then left again to retake the racing line. I suppose he thought the first one was the racing line, the second was the 'one move', the third was to rejoin the line. I can see why it would look otherwise though. Marginal penalty, not clear cut to me.

    And here is the big problem with timed penalities being applied after the race, becasue if Red Bull know that there might have been the a penality applied to the after the race, you just know they could find an extra 20 seconds somewhere with their pace. Okay they might have had to do one less pit stop, and of course when to stop would have had to change, but still, would it have mattered?

    All well, I guess the judges do look at the gap then add another five seconds to ensure you lose a position....

    Lewis has a 20second penalty for moving more than once whilst defending his position

    What? Outrageous

    Seconded. If anything, Alonso deserved a worse penalty. If indeed Hamilton did anything wrong, the puncture already ruined his race and should've been punishment enough.

    Alonso's penalty was to have to pit for a new front wing, the stewards didn't need to get involved.

  • Pat W10/04/2011 at 13:53

    But he's just a consultant, no? Has no say in the final decision.

    No he's a full steward but there are three of them, it isn't just his decision as some people seem to think

    Exactly. Not too worried about his penalty though as he did not lose a place. Slap on the wrist.

  • Jordan F110/04/2011 at 13:55

    Can I point out that Alonso received the same penalty for causing an accident with Hamilton, so all of know exactly when that took place, but in Hamilton's case, we are not really sure when the incident did take place, so maybe Hamilton did a dangerous weave off-feed?

    McLaren should be screaming about Vettel at the start. Button has a potential win here.....

  • RubberGoat10/04/2011 at 15:11

    Hmm. Just got home after going #outside and saw the penalties - bit daft considering Alonso had to change his wing - but I am not sure about Hamilton's because he does appear to weave around.

    Doesn't matter much anyway because they both had poor races.

    I know it sucks that they changed the result, but there's no fair way to do it. For example in Grand Am a team won the Daytona 500 one year and were found to be underweight because their oil cooler was found to have been burning oil during the race. Now, because NASCAR have a policy of not changing a result after the flag, this team won the race illegally. Not a good result either...

    The TV station has already blown their budjet to get F1 in both HD and live. Therefore, it can not afford any tape delay coverage. If you do not see the race live, that's your tough luck. And I do not have any recording device hooked up to the TV, yet.

  • Bassano10/04/2011 at 18:18

    Just had a thought on the 107% rule

    The last time it was used, it was based on the pole position time, now it is not. Due to the tyre restrictions, the top teams don't have to try too hard and their Q1 times are significantly slower than Q3

    Based on the Q3 time for Seb, both HRT cars would exceed 107%

    Just a thought

  • Bassano10/04/2011 at 18:19

    ... Q1 times are significantly slower than Q3

    Over 2 secs in fact

  • Bassano10/04/2011 at 18:26

    Karthikeyan would have been. Liuzzi would have missed by 0.064 seconds...

    Liuzzi: 1:41.549

  • Pat W10/04/2011 at 18:42

    Based on the Q3 time for Seb, both HRT cars would exceed 107%

    But the track was more rubbered-in for Seb's run, so HRT's times would also have been (a little bit) faster.

    Strategy is down to the team, tyres I agree with though we discussed this during the race.

    He has Sato's setup for the race because he could not make his own setup work in quali or practise

    I wonder why he was fired. I'm not complaining 'cause I didn't like his style, but I know a lot of folks did.

    RG why do they shout at the ball when it's in the air?

  • RubberGoat10/04/2011 at 20:37

    RG why do they shout at the ball when it's in the air?

    Because the hot air creates thermals which allows the ball to fly higher

  • RG10/04/2011 at 20:38

    RG why do they shout at the ball when it's in the air?

    I think its because they feel that shouting at them has more to do where it lands than say the swing.

  • Lukeh10/04/2011 at 20:38

    Because the hot air creates thermals which allows the ball to fly higher

    Bloody hell!

  • Kai10/04/2011 at 20:38

    RG why do they shout at the ball when it's in the air?

    'cause it's the only time they get to shout anything all day.

    I'm not really kidding. I used to go to tournaments.

  • Lukeh10/04/2011 at 20:38

    If you were Italian or Danish you would refer to any sauce as gravy.

  • Christine10/04/2011 at 21:50

    Yeah and she was pretty good in that. No idea where she vanished after that though.

    Ooh, I like ER.

    Wish I'd read this first rather then the film

    Over 'The Lovely Bones' which I wish I'd read and never seen :)

  • Pat W10/04/2011 at 21:52

    Ooh, I like ER.

    I miss it. Used to be a religion to watch on Channel 4, Wednesdays at 9. Then they moved it to E4 before everyone could get E4 and I lost it.

    Would love to watch the whole thing from the very beginning. I remember when they had the shooting with the new characters who looked to be main characters for years.. shocking and upsetting!

    Hah that was hilarious, which probably wasn't their intention!

    I've got a LoveFilm sub which will be cheaper probably, got lots of things in the queue before then.

    I keep meaning to join that, Haven't rented a movie in ages. If I plug my modem into my cable box I can stream movies but my PC is on the other side of the house and a wifi adaptor didn't work...

  • RubberGoat10/04/2011 at 22:02

    Both!

    Fair call, it was pretty silly!

    Hah that was hilarious, which probably wasn't their intention!

    The second one I did laugh at!

  • Christine10/04/2011 at 22:03

    Fair call, it was pretty silly!

    The first one was just like... I never want to go near a helicopter again. Which wasn't exactly a thought I needed reinforcing.

    Then the second one was just silly.

  • Kai10/04/2011 at 22:04

    Then the second one was just silly.

    Maybe that ER was some kind of super gravity vortex for helicopters.

    Heard of it, but no

    It's unusual, but I like that, and I like Edie Falco in it.

  • Christine10/04/2011 at 22:12

    I saw perhaps the first scene and was a bit put off but people rave about it.

    I saw perhaps the first scene and was a bit put off but people rave about it.

    It is different, with a drug addict nurse who cheats on her husband, but I mostly like it if I just leave my judgments aside. I wasn't sure I liked it at first.

  • Steven Roy10/04/2011 at 22:13

    I intend to blog about it at some point, but I bought a TV guide and suddenly felt this huge pressure to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

    Mr C and I have been flicking through the channels occasionally and spotted films we'd love to watch but they're half an hour in and we've missed out.

    It's hard trying to reconcile on demand consumption with a big box of constant entertainment.

  • RubberGoat10/04/2011 at 22:20

    I miss a lot by not watching much TV

    I don't watch much either - we don't get all of them here either.

    We have Mad Men but I lost track. So my colleague has lent me season one again.

    Could be.

    There was lots of Lee this weekend.

    She doesn't annoy me anymore, less gardens and racer's mansions.

    Good to see

    am quite miffed about that.

    i was on mckenzie alert, to log how few seconds of tv she actually appeared on and she did loads of stuff. i swear she was invisible in melbourne.

  • Christine10/04/2011 at 23:08

    True enough. I can't quite take her seriously when it was all about horses and shooting, both of which I find quite hideous!

    It's worrying that I was leading our league after the first race but about 600th overall
