Here we go again in 2 hours time in what seems like a fruitless practice session day in the dry when the race is likely to be wet. What can the teams learn in dry sessions when they might be thinking of a wet race? Is it time that F1 needs to do something about restricting car setups on Sundays?

In any case, let the mayhem begin and may the best man (Lewis) win 8)

I'd like to see them bring back the warm-up sessions before the race.

it would require a complete rule rethink though, wouldn't it? Sunday practice would effectively throw parc ferme in the scrapheap, as well as keeping the same tyres you qualify on etc etc.

Personally, i think it would be good to bring it back, but i don't think it's that simple unfortunately

Sky F1 commentary saying 100% chance of rain on race day, fingers crossed they are actually right :)

I seriously don't see why people want it to rain on Sunday.

It's the last race of a season, a championship decider, an end to a great season - and people want to add a major variable to the mix, a variable that could make it all into a lottery?
Personally, I want to see the drivers go drive to the fullest in good conditions. No excuses, just plain flat-out racing - like the racing we've seen a lot of this season. Another race such as Malaysia, or conditions like Q3 in Hockenheim? No thanks.

For me personally it's because if it is a bog standard dry race, then its as much of a certainty that you can get in F1 that Vettel will just cruise easily to a podium and the whole thing will be a big anti-climax.

Throw in a bit of rain however and the result is up in the air for the entire race. As a neutral, I'd much rather have a high degree of uncertainty.
