Shame on Massa, he was far the quickest all over the weekend, he threw it away in the mid-sector, 4 tenths slower... Don't know if it was a mistake.. Looks like it was one :thumbsup:

I second that! if they get a penalty (each), which in my opinion, they should it would be good for both Kubica and Hamilton.

Great result for Kubica. Massa just on second position. Alonso tenth #Fear . I think it's going to be a very exciting race. :cool:

Kubica GREAAATTT!!!
Massa is stupid, he dominated all of Q1, Q2 and most of Q3 until the last few laps! now all he can come away with is P2, huh, Ferrari driver!!

I think Massa is a little bit heavier on fuel than the others and kubica will pit on lap 14 or 15.

I also think Massa will pit later than Kubica, but what about Hamilton ?

Don't think so, I think it will be the same as in Australia, with Hamilton in Kubica, he should have got pole there as well, but he didn't had a chance in the race, think it will be the same but then with, Felipe..

I am anticipating Ferrari will start to show an advantage over McLaren. BMW, Williams and Toyota will start to become competitive with McLaren.

Can Massa finally get a good result?
He will be completely focused on that, so he could win.

What role is BMW Sauber going to play?
They are very close to McLaren, so they could play a big part in seperating Ferrari and McLaren in the points chases. I am looking for BMW to be very competeive with McLaren this year.

Will there be rain?
Yes, there should be a downpour! Ha!

Who crash into the barriers again?
Hamilton (I hope!)


Now here is the answers to your assumptions ... Kubica beats Ferrari to pole. This means they are very close to Ferrari, in fact right now faster & i am looking for BMW to be competitive with Ferrari / Mclaren.

I also expect Hamilton to beat both Massa and Kubica. But we should not forget the start of the race tomorrow. It has a hairpin as the very first corner. So anybody who holds on to the inside lane can edge the others to pole. So it all depends on tomorrow's start. Anybody in the top 6 can move on to pole after the first 2 corners.

So strategy changes pretty much after that. If Kubica holds on, then he will have to pit slightly later. Or if Massa / Hamilton pass Kubica then its a different story. If Kov passes all of them ... then its altogether a different story.

But i am expecting atleast one red flag tomorrow. The so called gravel traps are allowing the cars to sail thro to barriers. Wait for our back row boys. One of them goes flying to barriers then everything becomes topsy turvey !!!

wouldn't say that there will be a red flag, but possibly a yellow and maybe a safety car
