Oh boy, Kimi lost out to his teammate again. Let's hope at least he's got more fuel, otherwise I don't know what excuse he can find....so disappointing. But maybe the rain should help him, if it comes.

Massa must be running a short stint tomorrow, given the gap back to Raikkonen .
Great Position For trulli , can he Translate that into a Good Results tomorrow ?

Oh yes, Trulli was crazy! The best time in Q1... !yahoo: And still managed 5th in Q3. He's still probably the best qualifier on the grid. :p

As for Maccas, I don't really hope penalty now that Heikki is in a better position than Lewis. :tired:

They are right! It was so close when you see in Heidfeld's onboard cam! Moreover, the two Maccas were on the racing lines whereas Kubica and Webber were in the dirty side of the track! Heidfeld had nearly nowhere to go :blink:

I'm very disappointed by the position of Rosberg :sad: I don't know what happened for him.....

A stellar and consistent performance of the Aussie thru the whole weekend up to the last ticks of Q3 :thumbsup:
Team to watch are the BMWs, they might pull some great moves atthe back of the Macas, Trulli is amazing - but will he be consistent enough? cant wait till tomorrow, update please on the Maca incident...

Yeah, Ferrari is in top form here !yahoo:
Let's hope they can keep it toghether in the race :pray:

Well, given Kimi's lap in Q2 with low fuel, I think he must be on a different strategy to Massa if we look at the final gap. Remember, this used to be his tactic last year also. Although he did say sth about grip levels in Q3 not being perfectly ok, but he didn't insist on it. Let's wait and see in the race. :cool:

The BMW's looked to be there for most of quali, but not quite at the end

Trulli, wow :blink: , he is truly ( :p ) a one lap specialist.

Here's hoping for a dry, clean race tomorrow :pray:

It's not that simple. Slowing cars impeded Heidfeld's lap and also Alonso's.

And when Kubica was on his flyer, his first sector was the best of all so he might have made a mistake somewhere or stucked between traffic. BMW will be stronger tommorrow.

I forecast a good week end for Massa, he's very good at the moment. Kimi's just behind him and with perhaps a little more fuel. However, if it rains, I don't think Massa will stay first :P
Go straight to the finish line with ChequeredFlags!
