You couldn't make it up:

"The fuel rig guy put the rig on, but he had the handle set to drain fuel. He discovered his mistake and switched it to put fuel in the car. But as a result he didn't put as much fuel in it as he should have.

with all the pit stop issues and now this some heads at McLaren have to roll they are ****ing things up big time every GP this season.

Whitmarsh, the chief mechanic at least have to be haulled in buy Ron Dennis, who should bite the bullet and be more hands on again

I don't think he'll have any trouble finishing in the points. And, if his car really is as fast as it was in quali, I wouldn't rule him out for a cheeky podium.

But gutted for him, he must be fuming. Hope it doesn't translate to an overly aggressive race where stewards have to get involved again.

They seem to be making terrible decisions, costing him valuable points all the time. If it ain't the nuts at the pits, it's a shite decision to run him on low fuel despite it being clear he had the pace to be on pole anyway. Bring back Ron Dennis I say...

True but they couldn't have gave him a harsher punishment, maybe starting 10th would have been more suitable.

When there is a techincal infringement, the usual punishment is disqualification. I do feel sorry for Hamilton though, he deserved pole today.

Don't see Lewis leaving McLaren. Where else really is there to go? Ferrari are awful and I can't see him wanting to compete with Seb at Red Bull, whose car is arguably on the decline now anyway.

He has, possibly, the best car on the grid it's just ridiculous errors and decision making from the pit lane have sabotaged his - and JB's - season so far. He's not the only one suffering from it.

I'd be far less surprised to see Whitmarsh out than Lewis.

Is someone getting paid to just mess up Hamiltons season as much as possible, almost another disaster in the pits, not moving the rear wheel out the way!!!

Great race again. I can't believe Williams and Ferrari actually had race winning pace. Brilliant race for Kobayashi, Vettel and Hamilton too.

What are the odds on a Lotus win in Monaco to mix things up even more?

Loving the complete and utter collapse at McLaren lol. Yet another pit-stop **** up!

Maldonado is 16/1 to win at Monaco this weekend. Seems a good bet, he's won there in every catergory he's raced in apart from F1

Yeah, that is pretty good odds. Really think Lotus can take this, their superior tyre management should pay off. If it is cold/wet then I think Alonso will take the win.

Edit: Looks like it is going to be cold/wet.

Whoever you support, it's so fantastic that we could genuinely be looking at six different teams contending for the win each time this season. Brilliant.

Absolutely, I forgot how close Perez came.

Watching the races, it's a little bit surreal. Going from a season where only one man looks like winning to having a dozen genuine contenders for the win.

Had half a lucky stroke today, the gaffs came in and said that if I can get to stanstead airport for 5am on Sunday morning and if a client doesn't turn up on time for the flight to the Monaco Grand Prix then his seat inthe flight and his ticket in the stand is mine.

Fingers crossed!!!!!!

Thanks to Maldonado in final practice...

...for which he receives a measly 10 grid slot penalty.

Idiot.
