I think the home advantage of Alonso will be minimal, because all F1 teams use the circuit in Barcelona for training, so everybody knows this circuit perfectly... And we all know that Schumi is the better driver

Time for Schumi to make it a hattrick . Would be the perfect scenario: Schumi clearly beats Alonso on his home turf, and as a result, Alonso will go berserk again and b!tch about how crappy of a team Renault has become .

But they haven't all they've done is stumbled a little... Alonso still leads Schumacher by quite a lead in the points grid...If schumacher is going to start winning again (and wins this race as well) then Alonso just needs to keep a hold of second until Renault find their footing... I'm not the biggest fan of either driver.
I'm actually starting to think Rosberg could take podium at this race. After his last performance at the Nurburgring from 22 to 5th... (alright he finished 7th but only due to multiple pit stopping so tactics need working on)

I also think Schumacher will win this time... An important factor will be the weather, though. We had some rain tonight and the track was wet today so the training sessions was very slow. I hope it gets better by Sunday.
At the bus station, buses stop. At the train station, trains stop. At my desk, I have a work station.

He had a similar performance, in Malaysia I believe, starting last and end up as 7th as well. That guy definitely has potential and a good team behind him, but seems he needs to start in the back of the field to have a good result .
Should be a good battle between Ferrari and Renault. Let's hope Fisi messes up and Massa doesn't, and Ferrari collects good constructor points.
I also hope that Montagny will have a better race (and a proper qualification) so he can show his talent. Ok, you can't do much in a Super Aguri but Sato has at times managed to challenge the more established teams.

The new tire changing policy definitely put Ferrari (/Bridgestone) back to the front line of the discipline, and once the red dragon is back to spitting flames, with schumi at the controls and Jean Todt running Ops , I fail to see how's to properly compete...
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...
Its the intangible things such as knowing the fans are there supporting you. Look around the circuit I think you'll see alot of support for Fernando. It's purely in the head.

I think there a better chance of it being the other way around. Massa's erratic all or nothing driving style is doing him no favours. He's only in a Ferrari by chance.

A formula 1 team is like baking a cake. You have to use the right measure of ingredients and put them into the mix at the right time. Once you perfect the only thing that will fail you is leaving the cake in the oven to long.

An all Renault front row, but like they say, "It's how you finish that counts!" Alonso will finish on the podium, but probably not first. Doesn't Schumi has a fresh engine this weekend? Also, please tell me this isn't another CBS televised race here in the U.S.! They are terrible. I could not find the race on www.speedtv.com

Quoting Aleksandar (Reply 23): Can someone tell me when will little Spaniard learn who the daddy is and not to interfere anymore like he did today?
What do you mean? I think he did a wonderful race today, he just vanished in front. Hard for me to say this but I congratulate him..... I think King Juan Carlos is more of a Schuey fan, you could tell on the Podium he was chatting to Schuey more than to Alonso.
