And quali is back........we think, although after the last round's false hope I might just keep something in reserve just in case it goes horribly wrong again. At least we know that all the drivers are in China based on a couple of photos doing the social media rounds of their pizza night. Well, to be strictly lay accurate, we assume they were all there on the basis it was Kimi behind the camera. I wonder how they settled on who pays the bill - perhaps one driver got to leave every 90 seconds until the waiters noticed, at which point it became a rush to be the fastest to the door with the last man standing having free choice of which credit card to choose to present. Hmmm, maybe the dodgy quali has affected me more than previously thought.

In more normal news, Hamilton spent time at the Great Wall this week, Haryanto was the guest of honour at another Indonesian Embassy function, Ricciardo had a hairdressing mishap (I am sure you'll see it during this weekend's coverage), Alonso attended a Chandon function and Ferrari launched a supercar for the Chinese market. So same old same old really.

Let's hope this weekend is indeed an exciting one. Can Grosjean continue Haas' remarkable start to the season? Can McLaren score more points, or get both cars to the finish (either works for me). And will Hamilton's grid penalty lead to exciting racing? We shall see in about 3 days.....
