"11:14 To the delight of the fans in the main grandstand, Ericsson heads back out in the Sauber. It's not clear whether or not they are Sauber fans, but everyone is a Sauber fan at heart, even if they don't realise it."

I just cannot disagree.

Looks like the fun is kicking off!
Still can't understand why every year big rule changes, but have to say that those front wings are really cool, whole car is really cool this year. I still remember how cars in 2009 looked ridiculous with snowplough style front wing and narrow rear wing
they still got some of that, actually when they are pointy they remind me of plow truck even more

but yeah 2009 cars were horrid - those wheel covers also. Good season though
