F1 2007: Canada

Tue Jun 05, 2007 1:06 pm

Alright Ladies and Gentleman....

Canada's coming up...and unfortunately, I think this race is going to the Ferraris..assuming no mechanical problems.

I also feel that Alonso will not do well.

Any thoughts, news or surprises?

Hopefully this track will suit the Ferraris a bit more than Monaco so we can have more of a race. Should be a close one.

Canada has always been a great to watch, never that great of a race to attend, but that is just my opinion. Im thinkin g this will be Hamiltons race, however a Ferrari 2 and 3 would ne be unexpected. I just think its time for Hamilton to snag one.


Everyone come to the USGP for an a.net meet! hahaha

It's going to be a tough one to call. Ferrari are defintely more suited to this track then Monaco, but it's clear McLaren have closed the gap.

The battle will be closer then Monaco, but Mclaren are really strong so I would not say that Ferrari will have an easy weekend.

Personally I think Kimi will put in a very strong performance, and also outpace Massa.
Drivers really have to watch out and keep it on the raceline as graining is a big issue on this track.

Canada is always fun as the last chicane after the long traight usually offers some nice wallscratching and overtaking.

Great, now he's jinxed! LouHam is going to hit the "Champions Wall," and it's all Blue's fault! GAH!!!!!!!!!

Reporters ask really stupid questions
Of course he doesn't give a shit. He's racing!

Renault is looking optimistic; they "appear" to have BMW Sauber in their sights. Kubica better do 2 things this weekend: make the Canadian press STFU about Jacques not being there and make Renault STFU about moving forward. GO BMW!

Supersofts for Canada, Softs and Mediums for USGP
Personally, I like to have all tire sets avail to teams, with teams choosing 2 compounds at the end of Fri testing. Teams could choose whatever sets suited them best, regardless of the other teams. Of course, logistics make that near impossible... too many tires.

Quote:
Similar to Monte Carlo, being more or less a street circuit, Montreal is not used many times so it’s very dusty and very slippery, which is why we’ve opted for the soft and super soft compounds. It will be a bit of a challenge to make the tyres survive on this track, especially at the beginning of the weekend with the high speeds and the expected high temperatures.

Guess they need grip, and the super softs have a bunch of grip...

Rosberg with Williams in 2008
A star in the same league as LouHam? Frank, Nico's good... but come on.

Quote:
Toro Rosso co-owner Gerhard Berger, meanwhile, told Sport Bild that the attention of every team boss in pit lane has been drawn to Rosberg's driving in 2007. "Ferrari included," he quipped.

I think the Ferrari thing is a bit overdrawn. So before this gets too speculative, admiration of a driver is not the same thing as offering him a contract, or even talking to him about a contract. Ferrari probably only admired Nico.

Making Tracks

Quote:
Ecclestone is already applying pressure for a minimally 20-race schedule in the near future, but Williams said the sport risks becoming less attractive for its workers.

Going back to questions raised in previous threads. Who is going to lose a GP? How much is Bernie playing Chicken with the tracks?

Honda

Quote:
“At the Paul Ricard test, we found a good set-up on the Montreal configured circuit, which we hope will translate well to the race weekend. We are continuing to develop the car, not only in terms of new aero parts but also mechanical improvements. Although we have not had the opportunity to test since Monaco, we will keep pushing as hard as possible for the North American races."

Anyone have the Paul Ricard (North America) numbers handy?

I'm a bit dubious about Mclaren's straight line speed.

The Ferrari is faster on the straights, and there is a big straight here where Ferrari may be able just to waltz away. The question is will the Mclaren be superior around the bendy part of the circuit?

I really wouldn't want to make any estimates now about what may happen this weekend, I want to see some practice times first!

If LouHam's Monaco driving style is any indication, he'll hit the damn wall a few times and brag about how he got away with it. Alonso will fire back that he is the #1 driver and that his superior driving won the day. Kimi will tell both drivers to shut up b/c he drove with a hangover and their bickering is making his headache worse. At that point, Ron Dennis will mention the words "team" and "orders" together, albeit with a 45 second gap between the words, causing Bernie to investigate matters. Oh, and Adrian Sutil also hits the wall, but no one cares, save Ralf Schumacher, who gets sacked for making excuses. I miss anything?

Check out the poll below who has a major lead in regards to win the Canadian GP.
http://f1.gpupdate.net/en/poll.php?a...vote&pollID=1079&pollanswerID=4419

Hamilton is not getting much votes, but on the other hand I am pretty flat on that issue. I mean, so many people thinks it is his time to win. Why not turn that around and say it's his time to make a mistake or a DNF? That will for sure happen as he is just human as the rest of the grid.

Agreed. My cat could have done a better lap.

I think this maybe be the track to finally overcome Hamilton. There are two possible walls to crash into. The last croner and I think the 3rd or 4ths corner into the track. One of these two walls may become troublesome to him. I'm actually hoping for Hamilton to get a bad quali to start down the field to see what he is capable of. It would be nice to see Kimi come back and win this race.

I would like to see Coulthard, Rosberg and Davidson in the points and maybe Barrichello or Button as the Honda's do have a good straight line speed and shit cornering.

I salute our coverage and commentators here in The Netherlands. They are really great and also knows what they are talking about. Every Sunday before the race, they also have an interview with a driver, team boss, tech director, or some other interesting person from any team.

I think Martin does a very good job and he is not a problem. ITV do a ok job but they could do a lot better:
More about the aerodynamics on the car that change every race, more interviews with the mechanics (more interesting than the modern driver) asking what they do etc, talk with the back end of the grid more. Mike up the track more like they do in the USA and get some better sounds. More on-board shots when the race is dull from the outside. I could go on...

Maybe it was hard for anyone following the great M Walker. But James is just boring. I wish we had someone who said the what we are thinking when things happen. He talks down at the viewers and gets excited over boring races and says the samething all the time.


....Or maybe I should learn Dutch?

Other interesting things. Jenson button will Crash out, as will Sutil and Wurz. Scott Speeds engine will crap out. Something will go wrong for BMW and Renault and Hamilton will not start in the first 4.

Don't forget that Albers will complain about the tyres, and that was the reason for that his engine broke.

More on-board shots when the race is dull from the outside. I could go on...

ITV has no control over that. It's the responsibility of the home race to ensure common TV coverage.

German TV keeps focus pretty much on the German drivers and Mercedes. Tech analysis is lacking. You know, I didn't think I'd say this, but I kinda miss SpeedTV's F1 coverage.

Quoting DHHornet (Reply 38):
I wish we had someone who said the what we are thinking when things happen. He talks down at the viewers and gets excited over boring races and says the samething all the time.

Sounds like Derek Daly when CBS gets to cover an F1 race. Or what the current ChampCar commentators do.

Oh, and those in the A.net Racing League:

Ferrari will be much more suited to Canada and USA.

I think they'll win this weekend. raikkonen has to have a good result or he's in real trouble as the other three just aren't dropping points right now. On form I'll go for a Massa win though as i think his car will be more suited to montreal tha McClaren and he's got the momentum that Kimi doesn't have right now.

It's arguable that Hamilton and Massa are by far and away more consistent then their more illustrious and high paid teammates. Massa hasn't really had a bad race since Melbourne.

They have been.

Massa's race in Melbourne was ok - its was his qualifying that was the problem. His race in Malaysia was poor though. since then just fine.

an outsider for the podium may actually be Renault. Fisichella has always gone very well at Montreal, but i can see bottom step of podium at best and only with a couple of retirements ahead of him. If it rains however they have a much better chance.....

For some reason I also think Renault will be strong this weekend. They will come creeping up behind as the season progresses.

And then we have Honda,
Will Button and Barrichello make it through the parade lap!?

They claim to be on par with BMW now so we'll see. I'm a little confused with BMW they were super fast during the pre-season but have so far failed to pose any threat to McLaren and Ferrari. Perhaps they were just show-boating. I'd really like to see them pick up and pose a realistic challenge to them both, to keep them honest if nothing else.

Alonso on top, but it does not really tell that much, yet. Today we will see who is really fast.

I hope SAF1 will qualify in the top 10 again.
