Hi guys,

I've checked the first part of this thread and started the new one to go on.

It was an excited qualification between McLaren and Ferrari. Great result for Massa. I was expecting a pole from Hamilton, he dissappointed me a little bit. May be his car is heavier than the others.
Unfortunately Honda was another dissappointment  Sad

For the race I think Balonso will pass Massa and Hamilton will try to get Kimi. It will be a great start. I hope there won't be any accident.

Let's wait and see..

Have a nice race.......

The McLaren's are looking strong. There is nothing between the top four cars, two hundredths between Massa and Alonso and three tenths back you have Kimi and Hamilton who have a gap of just over three hundredths of a second.

Unfortunately Honda was another disappointment

Honda are a perpetual disappointment.

Massa has turned into something of a qualfying superstar lately, hasn't he? He's now taken 3 in a row, and 5 of the last 6 I believe, which would have been 6 of 6 if his transmission hadn't failed in Australia during Q3. If he gets away cleanly and leads out of the first corners, he should be able to stay at the front unless Ferrari mess up his strategy. I really dislike both Alonso and Raikkonen because of their personalities, so I hope it's another close battle between Hamilton and Felipe. Only a few hours until the start!

Ok,

Time to put your money where your mouth is, sort of.

As I manage to get 1 out of 3 correct for the quali, lets see if I can make it better this time. Big grin

1. Alonso, I think Massa is under pressure to do well, and become Ferraris no. 1 driver, and therefore will make a mistake.
2. Kimi, Looked strong the whole weekend and during testing. Consistent.
3. Massa, he will make the podium though.
4. Hamilton, I think now we will see what he is made off as he will really have to push this time.
5. Kubica, yeah I am confident he will score good this race.

Aim for the sky!

mmm I've been thinking on Massa abit more. He takes the last chicane pretty quick, perhaps jumping the curbs abit. Therefore I think he will damage his car slightly somestage during the race at corners 14 and 15.

Raikkonen

Oh come on, don't like the World champion in the art of understatement? Dearie me!

Who knows. As the BEEB website has it a single mistake could determine it. Wonder what will happen between the start and the exit to the first corner.

On the contrary,
I find both these guys to be very good sportsmen, and they are not in this because of their personality, but to race and win.
Kimi is a typical Finnish guy. Do not say much, or express feelings, but he sure knows how to throw an F1 car around the track. And that is what counts.

Not a normal sight to see a Ferrari break down, and of course it had to be Kimis. Damn!

Who knows, we might even see Spyker among the top 10.

Ohhhhh fuel fire on the Ferrari of Massa. Seems to have put itself out half way down the pitlane. Now will that effect his fuel for this stint. His car seemed to be rolling forward slightly during his stop.

Williams. Also Button just lost his wing coming out of the pits fighting for position with teammate Barichello. Believed to be Buttons fault. Hamilton is still hasn't pitted. Looks good.

Heidfeld left pit to early and wheel nut fell off. Picked up by Toyota Pitcrew, but Heidfeld opted to continue on for some strange reason.

Miscommunication, most likely. Expect some major as chewing for that little stunt, not to mention a long second stint to make up for lost time. A few more retirements and Super Aguri will have a point!

Lego, if Heidfeld was already outside his designed pit area he must make one lap, I hardly think they can push him back manually to fit the nut.
Liuzzi is the 6th driver out?

He was 10 metres outside of his pitarea. Going out with no wheel nut on the front right is dangerous.

Im not sure which retirement number Liuzzi is.

David Coulthard is 5th! Brilliant. Fingers crossed for no retirement. The race is boring up front but exciting midfield.

just about 10 laps to go....and looks like its going to be a winner for ferrari.

What makes me angry...is why did they give Hamilton Hard Tires for the third leg?...he was obviously faster on the softs.

Because he was on the soft for legs 1 and 2 and you have to use both grades of tires, soft and hard within the race.

Haha the trophys were great and alonso being third, the big prick gets a little prick  Wink
