Bottas is out, no stewards clearance. Williams will have one car in the field.

Quote:
Valtteri Bottas has been deemed unfit to take part in the Australian Grand Prix after injuring his back during qualifying.

The Finn reported the problem during Q2, but continued to take part in the session qualifying sixth. However, after being examined at the circuit, Bottas was transferred to hospital where he spent the night.

He was given further tests on Sunday morning, including an FIA extraction test, but the governing body deemed him unfit to race.

Williams will thus only field one car, with Susie Wolff unable to deputise having not driven the car during one of Saturday's sessions.

Should Bottas be unable to drive in Sepang in two weeks, reserve driver Susie Wolff or reigning GP3 Champion Alex Lynn are the likely replacements.

CRASH-Donado..........even though you give him a better car, he will always find a way to fuck it up.

Sad to see 13 cars on grid. 2 (Kyvat and Magnussen) broke before the start of the race.

That was painful to watch. Hamilton/Rosberg dominate 1/2. Vettel 3rd after first pit stop and keeping Massa (4th) at distance.

If crap keeps on like this, F1 will die.

Not having Bottas at all and Kimi looking wing clipped after the first corner contributed to making this even worse but man this is not exciting. I might even skip watching a few races this year if this is how it's going to be. Alonso must be second guessing his move to McLaren...what a train wreck that team is.

That was 30 minutes of my life I should've used elsewhere.

What a dead race. Even the announcers knew it and tried to breathe life into it.

It's dead boys, stop the CPR

I don't think Arnold had any idea who the drivers were.

I like how everyone gets excited for the first race of the season, then bitch about how boring the first race was lol. I think I spent more time looking at my phone than watching the race, though.

I thought he did quite good actually. He asked better questions than Mario's dumbass when in Austin.

The reaction of the drivers when Arnold popped out was hilarious. They were actually star struck.

Not everyone, I knew it was going to be bad and it was far worse than even I expected. I honestly feel like a sucker for even wasting my time watching it mostly at 4x speed.

It didn't even feel like a race, more like a practice session. For all the talk of a Ferrari resurgence, give me a break. Vettel was a mile behind the Arrows, and the only passing he did was in the pits. If Botas had been there I guarantee he would have been third. What a joke.

The shocking thing to me is McLaren. How they can be in the state they're in right now is mind boggling. What a complete embarrassment. Fire everybody.

F1 has fully morphed into a Soap Opera now. Predetermined endings and all the fun is the "drama". It's beyond sad when the Terminator was the only highlight.

Mercedes dominance as expected...but great to see Ferrari being competitive again....
Wish there's a mix fight between Merc, Ferrari, and McLaren..

Sadly, the most exciting parts of F1 now are off-track
