November 23, 2013
It rained during Quals today. Here's the provisional grid for the 2013 Grand Prix of Brazil:
It rained, and it still doesn't matter. In fact, it was only in the closing stages of Q3 that Rosberg cut the gap to Vettel to under a second. Let me repeat that: Vettel was going to take pole by over a second. In the rain. Guess what it's going to do on raceday? If you said "rain," you're right. Hopefully not as much as we had today, when Q3 had to be delayed nearly 45 minutes, but rain.
With the race on NBC, I wounder how they'd handle a major delay? Guess we might just find out! See ya at 10am Pond Time for the final Grand Prix of 2013.
On one hand it makes a great "story" to have someone dominate the sport for a season (or two) like Vettel's doing. On the other, gods, it's gotta make for some dreary viewing, race by race.
I wonder what rules changes are in the pipeline to prevent something like this happening again. But then, how do you rules-lawyer away a combination of a brilliant driver at the top of his career and his relatively trusty steed?

I do wonder just what the point of having the full-wet tires is. It seems that these days the FIA just goes from dry, to inters, to red flag. When they finally allowed Q3 to start, the cars did go out on full wets for once, only to find immediately that the track was ready for inters.

Cut to some boring sport, no doubt.
Oh, wait, that's the Olympics.
