What can I say? Fernando on pole with Jenson just behind and Schumacher and Raikonen way down the field. Ideal result as far as I'm concerned! Of course it will all change in the race, but I hope not!

Yep it should make for an interesting race, of course I'll be rooting for Jenson. Schumacher pushed way too hard on his qualifying lap, let's hope he does tomorrow as well. Can't wait for the race. Big grin thumbsup

Don't count Kimi out yet. No doubt, just like France last weekend, Kimi would have been carrying extra fuel in order to run longer in his first stint. With luck he'll move up rapidly and after the fuel stops will have made up his 10 place deficit.

Could easily be a barn-burner of a finish for the final stints.

I'll bet Button and Alonso ran light fuel to get the front row.

Alonso doesn't need to run light fuel to get on the front row, the boy goes like shit off a shovel anyway...

Alonso for the championship!

(this has nothing to do with me driving a Renault of course :P)

I agree that Alonso is running light. Kimi was carrying 9 laps worth of fuel more then Alonso in France and their times were pretty close. If Alonso is light and Kimi is heavy then we could see Kimi last upto 15 laps longer then Alonso. That is a massive amount of fuel to be carrying and to be that close.

Kimi needs the Renault to fail or be involved in some sort of race ending incident.

Montoya's back!

Final results:

1 Montoya

3 Kimi
4 Fisichella
5 Button
6 Schu****er
7 Barichello
8 Ralf

The one-minute silence before the race was thoughtful, but why didn't they wear black armbands like they said they would?

yeah!!! great job Mclaren and a lots of respect for Kimmi because comming from place 12 and ending on the 3th place without any failure (except for Karthikyan wich isn't one of the best drivers) is very good!!!

also this is most probably the last race for Friesacher, wich still doesn't has his financial things right... Luckely enough the dutchman ronald Doorbos is the man who will most likely replace him...

He is probably back for one race. For me he is the most overrated driver. He is not as good as he thinks of him self. He's a kind of race-cow-boy.

Montoya is like how Irvine was. Amazingly quick and not one of the PR robots the rest of the drivers are. THats what makes him and Irvine so likeable. They dare to be different. They are racers.

Having raced Formula Ford for a few years I don't see the relation between these two phrases, care to explain how daring to be different will win a person a championship?

Add Villeneuve to that list! That's another reason why I like all three.

Being different has nothing to do with winning a championship. But that's not Mark was alluding to. He was talking about appeal.

Absolutely! If JPM is ever stuck behind somebody on the racetrack, you never know when he's going to attempt to pass, that unpredictability makes him exciting! And when he's not racing, just like Irvine he's abusing people, speaking his mind, and keeping the whole thing colourful. Although he's probably not womanising like Irvine  Smile

JPM, Jaques, Eddie Irvine, James Hunt. Probably the worst people to be hated by, but for us they make the whole thing unpredictable and exciting.

Aww, and I just learned all the back-marker's names too! (j/k)

Quoting Jasepl (Reply 5):

And what club would that be?

Unfortunately JPM had a combination of false pole (running light to take pole) and a good start and that pretty much won him the race. It all came together for McLaren. Fortunately Fernando eeked out another 2 points lead over Kimi in the Championship.

I think Kimi has the best pace at the moment, but Alonso is second best. FOrtunately for Fernando he has all the luck too.

Quoting Aerobalance (Reply 4):

Yes and no. I don't think Kimi would be up front if he wa driving for Minardi for sure, but on the other hand, those who have the equipment and can really make it count when they do are the ones who will win. Miki Hakkinen did this, David Coultard did not. I'm liking DC more these days and no disrespect to the guy but he was at McLaren for... 7 years? That's time enough to make your mark if you have what it takes.

I think those who have what it takes at the moment are:

Fernando Alonso

Kimi Raikonen

Michael Schumacher

The rest have talent but not continuity and reliability as drivers to make it count when the equipment is working for them.
