I think it will be a boring race :sad:
1. Massa
2. Raikkonen
3. Hamilton
4. Kovalainen
5. Kubica
6. Heidfeld
7. Rosberg
8. Alonso
But I think the gap between Macca and Ferrari wil be closer then in Malaysia

2nd practice was quite entertaining again, a lot of mistakes from all the top drivers. Hamilton's accident looked pretty weird, it was very similar to happened to Massa in Malaysia. Busy night for McLaren techs for sure. :)

Williams is looking pretty good, though it doesn't seem many drivers were doing Q laps. From Ferrari testing sessions, I'd expect top middle-session Q times to go in low 1:30s.

didn't Kovalainen have the exact same accident in testing for Renault 07 ?

Will he get a 5 place penalty? There must have been some damage to the gearbox surely.

Hmm the teams are smart enough to ensure that they have a stand by car ready for this kind of unforeseen incidents. The rules say that you cannot carry a spare car but it doesn't stop them for carry sufficient spare parts to build a spare car. Moreover the engine rule would also mean that the engines that they run on friday would be different from the ones used on saturday & sunday. The rule states that engine should not be changed during or after saturday or sunday. So in my opinion teams would be running a different engine on friday since its just testing. I don't think Hamilton would get a grid penalty ... Only thing is Mclaren team crew is going to run short of sleep for this weekend.

if the car is damaged to much they can build up a spare chassis to be used , but they can't use a spare car :roll::
