Somehow I feel sorry for poor David.
Every year the same procedure, in the winter he tells "This year, THIS year, I'll use my chance to become world-champion" and every year he gets busted by a Finnish driver. First, Mika wins the championship twice and proves to be faster than DC, and then, when Mika finally decided to concentrate on Erja & Hugo, then some Finnish youngster comes around and now leads the rankings while David has to start from an amazing 12th position tomorrow.
Anyway, 2 Schumachers in the first row and Monti on 4th, nice result. Hopefully it'll rain tomorrow and the race will be as interesting as the Brazilian Grand Prix.

"...I mean the guy can't talk - he sounds like a broken door when he speaks and still is one of the best drivers in the world...
Is Kimi more articulate in his native Finnish language? I thought that maybe it was difficult to go from Finnish to English, since the languages are so different. Mika Hakkinen always seemed similarly tongue-tied in the press, I assumed it was because of the language barrier.
