Weather Report: Australian Grand Prix 2010 (UPDATED)

We're 10 minutes from lights-out for the Australian Grand Prix, and it has just started to rain... but it's just a drizzle.  It might get harder, it might run for a while, so nobody has a clue what type of tire to put on.

For the record?  I'm giggling like a schoolgirl.

UPDATE 1am, recon lap: Looks like everybody is playing it safe and going with Intermediate tires.

UPDATE end lap 01: Safety Car!  Felipe Massa made a rocket start to 2nd, Kubica went from 9th to 4th, Alonso HWMNBN and Slappy got deranged, breaking Slappy's nose.  But the big one came when the Sauber of Kamui Kobyashi had his front wing come off (AGAIN), sending him into a wall, then across the track where he collected the Williams of Nico Hulkenberg in a massive accident.  Safety Car lasts 5 laps or so.

UPDATE end lap 11: Everybody is back on slicks now, but it's beginning to rain again.  Oops.  I'm just going to watch the race now unless there's a major occurrence.

UPDATE end lap 26: Major occurrence!  Seb Vettel crashes from the race lead, maybe a broken suspension.  Button is now your leader!

1 So now it's OK for us to name HWMNBN?
