Tomorrow is Palmer's last race for Renault. Not been announced yet but I imagine Sainz is going across early.

Just watched the video of Hamilton's lap. The amount of speed being carried into the corners, especially in the first section is just mind boggling. Makes GT racing look like a leisurely stroll in the park.

Looks to be that way with Kvyat returning to Toro Rosso for the USGP.

These last three races have been an utter gooseberry fool show for Ferrari, such a shame for the championship.

I don't like Vettel, and want Hamilton to win, but not like that (matrix.gif).

The early season "we're getting a proper contest" excitement has been shot in the back of the head.

Same, Vettel has really proven himself to be a wanker and its karma at work. Would rather have a proper competition and real hard fought race, but Vettel losing brings some consolation.

Yeh, pretty much agree. Good to see Red Bull being more competitive though!

Alonso to do next years Daytona 24 Hours

Also Drivers set for grid introductions at Austin

Legendary announcer Michael Buffer is set to introduce drivers onto the grid at next weekend's United States Grand Prix, in a new initiative from Formula 1 owner Liberty Media.

Buffer, the Hall of Fame Sports and Entertainment Announcer, is famed for his iconic boxing introductions, most prominently the "let's get ready to rumble" call.

"I've been involved in some of the biggest sporting events around the world and have introduced most of the greatest boxers of the modern era," said Buffer.

"Now is my time to introduce the world's finest racing drivers.

"They are the stars of the show and I want to introduce them with the energy and adrenalin they deserve before they fire up their engines and get ready to race."

In order to accommodate the change to the pre-race schedule, the FIA will apply for an exemption to the Sporting Regulations as a one-off.

As a result, the pit lane is set to open at 13:15 local time, rather than 13:30, ahead of the race start at 14:00, with the initiative backed by all teams.

"This will allow more time on the grid with the cars and drivers," said Race Director Charlie Whiting.

"The period leading up to the start of a Formula 1 Grand Prix is always very spectacular and we are pleased to be able to make it even more exciting for the general public watching both at and away from the track."

I look forward to this American taking the time to find out how each driver's name is pronounced.

This reminds me of when they did the introductions at the World Athletics championships earlier this year, where they walked on a stage. Hilariously cringeworthy. I don't want something similar in F1.

If they don't get him to say "drivers, start your engines" then it's a complete waste of money!
