So what are your predicitons for tomorrow? Kimi certainly would have gotten the pole today if it wouldnt have been for that mistake he made in the first sector. Schumi was a dissapointment although the bridgestone tires are prooven to be in their natural habitat during long and wearing races, not during qualifying.
Alonso was no bigger surprise, Trulli on the other hand was even saying so himself. I didnt expect him to snatch the Q1 pole to be honest, it never crossed my mind.
Well, we'll see how Q2 and the race itself goes, i think Kimi takes the Pole for the race if he doesnt do any mistakes tomorrow and then i think it will be all up to Schumi, Kimi and Alonso who wins. Thats' my prediction.

Lets go Villeneuve!!! .....
I missed the last GP (first one in 3 years), but I'd have to say either Schumi or Alonso have the best chances. I'd like to see Alonso pull it off this year, that would be great for him, Spain and Renault. The team/driver that finally stopped Schumi and Ferrari.

Flavio is boss at Renault so, no difference.
Anyway, Trulli didn´t preform well, 5th in final qualifying. Seem like Barrichello got problems, anyway the Red Baron 8th in qualifying and best Bridgestone car.

Looking for the Renault's traction off the line to get Fernando up into the top two! I Don't think he'll have a run on Kimi, I think the McLaren might run off with it as long as reliability stays good.
As for Ferrari I don't see them having the pace they did in Imola, that was circumstatial. Schumacher will end up in the points but I think best of third place, probably fourth or fifth.

Finally! So many dissapointing break-downs and bad luck for Kimi, now he finally set the pace for the others to follow. Will be very very interesting to see how things turn out in Monaco in two weeks time. It will be a tough fight for Alonso and Schumi for sure.

Mika, there´s no such thing as "bad luck", McLaren had failed a lot in the last 2 years, it all started with the failure to pass the crash test of the future car,
a modified was a disaster.
Again Trulli deliver, next race he can defend his win in Monte Carlo. What can
I say about Fischella, not as good as Trulli.
Still think the red cars suffer from the fire in the factory about a year ago.
