    How come Vettel set no time and still starts 9th?

    A lot are using the softs. So the front runners won't be held up that much after pitting.

    Does webber get a chance to warm up the tires and then go back into pit to start from there?

    He set times in Q1 and Q2 which advanced him to Q3. Hulkenberg starts in 10th and also set no time. Simple.

    No.

    Sutil giving Di Resta next to no room. Webber pitting early, he needs to put some stellar laps in now.

    Both Mercedes looking like they are dropping rather swiftly.

    The Force Indias rear right brake caught on fire due to no cooling.

    Great pit work from the Mercedes guys. :tup:

    That would've hurt Sutil. His brakes were on fire too in the pits.

    2 DRS zones is stupid, the car in front has no chance to defend. Hulks pass on Vettel was awesome.

    Edit: Go Hulk!

    How the heck did Webber end up right up with Kimi when they both had one stop?

    Vettel has no straight line speed. He is using DRS and still being gapped on the long straight by Hulk.

    :)

    Also Alonso is catching Hulk at a second a lap...

    Red Bull always lacks straight line speed. That long straight is really showing that flaw now.

    Those that didn't put a lap in Q3, if karma is king, shouldn't get rewards here.
