Will's got some nice boots. I haven't had boots like that since I left Ft. Hood in '82. My younger brother stole them and wore them out. I really need to get to that race next season.

I'm predicting Vettel/Hamilton on the front row after qualifying. They both look really good around the track.

Yep. Vettel looks untouchable, and Alonso is way off the pace. It's not looking good for the championship battle.

Webber summoned to stewards

Mark Webber is under investigation for missing a weight check during qualifying for the United States Grand Prix.

Although he finally qualified third, Webber missed a request from the FIA to be weighed towards the end of Q1 at 12:19 local time. As a result, he was summoned to the stewards after qualifying. Red Bull had secured first and third on the grid, with Sebastian Vettel taking pole, and speaking after the session Webber said the team would be focusing on trying to secure the constructors' championship.

"I'm pretty happy with qualifying actually," Webber said. "It's a very tricky venue in terms of tyres, circuit conditions and all those type of things together so it's easy to be out of the window here and not be super competitive if you don't get everything together. So I was pretty happy with the last part of Q3; we had to manage a little problem in the car which in the end I don't think would have cost us a position because the guys obviously were pretty quick and both did very strong lap times.

"I would have liked to have a little bit more pace but overall I'm happy to be third on the grid, it's certainly up there towards the front and we can have a very, very strong grand prix from there. It's a great job from the team, I think constructors wise we've got our eye firmly on that tomorrow to try to put that to bed and that will be a huge result for everyone at Milton Keynes and Renault."

Could be grid penalty, or be treated as underweight car as Technical Infringement, which might set him back to pitlane start?

However, last time a driver missed a weight check was Jean Eric Vergne, he was reprimanded.

Consistency? Who knows? Its the FIA~

Will Vettle beat Schuey's record?

Looks like he may get his 3rd world title soon, then get momentum over the next few years.

Called it

I really hope Alonso makes up places in the race though, I want to see this championship end in Brazil.

Webber escapes with reprimand
By Pablo Elizalde | Autosport – 6 hours ago
Email

Mark Webber has been reprimanded for having missed a weight check during qualifying for the United States Grand Prix.
The Australian Red Bull driver was under investigation after officials said he had missed a call to be weighed near the end of Q1.
Webber went on to qualify in third position.
The stewards gave the Australian a reprimand for the incident, meaning he will was able to keep his grid slot for Sunday's race.
"The driver failed to proceed directly to the FIA garage for weighing when signalled to do so," said the stewards. "However upon realising the error, the team brought the car back to the FIA garage immediately."

Rumors are that Massa could get a gearbox change which would move Alonso to the clean side of the grid.
