2014 Formula 1 Ubs Chinese Grand Prix

What an epic race Mercedes gave us two weeks ago. Take that Ferrari, RBR and Williams, this is what we get for not having Team Orders. The quality of racing and battle was one of the best I've personally seen in the last few years.

Big news as Stefano Domenicali was "executed" for being incompetent for leading the Tifolsi to winning more championships. (News say he stepped down. But I feel its more like being chopped off by Luca Di Montezemolo)Hope to see the new boss Marco Mattiacci will bring the team to become competitive all season long.

In about 12 hours or so (Tuesday European Time), we will hear the verdict of the "Fuel Mass Flow Sensor" case. Personally I'd think RBR will get a slap on the wrist ($$$) for ignoring clarifications (Technical Directive), but did not directly breach the fuel flow rule. IF they can prove the way they measure is absolutely correct.

Bring it on. Fourth Race of the season!!! This year also marked the 10th anniversary of the Chinese Grand Prix. Unfortunately, we can see the empty grand stands in the past few years.

Very curious to see what top speeds they reach here. I remember reading somewhere they were expecting to touch 370kmh at monza, this has a similarly long straight. I'd love to see them hit 210 or more. I think the V8's were barely over 200 in China.

Anyway, hope for a great race!

Brand new Video by AMG Petronas contradicts the Turbo Rumors?

Cool video nonetheless. You're right though... it doesn't show the turbocharger being any different or split like in the other video.

Bahrain was epic! Really looking forward to China, and seeing if that awesome dynamic continues... Bahrain was some of the best F1 racing I've seen in years.

My guess is that the video was produced before this information leaked and if it was made by Mercedes, why would they give out their secret weapon?

Those aero details always blow me away! The time they must spend coming up with all those little pieces and curves and surfaces. And then Maldonado slams into you and wrecks it all.

It's going to be interesting to see Vettel attacking Ricciardo tomorrow and how Ricciardo responds. A lot of pride and team status on the line for Vettel. Kimi snap out of it please,Alonso is fast as sh*t but not that much faster than you.
