Can Massa continue his winning ways?
Podium - but not first.

Can Raikkonen keep his tiltle lead?
Absolutely.

Can BMW maintain their stunning form?
They are on a roll and looking great.

Can McLaren fight back?
No way - they no longer have a spy to help them out.

And what of the rest: Toyota, Renault and Williams etc...
Would be nice to see the enthusiasm of Nico on the podium again.

...and can Sebastian Vettel finish?
Good luck will start to swing his way.

It has to run everything well and their opponents have a problem or a race less good.

The Circuit de Catalunya is a circuit where aerodynamic efficiency is particularly critical - teams have to balance the need for maximum speed down the long straight against the need for maximum speed through the many long, fast corners. If Ferrari have a decisive advantage here, as they did last year, then Istanbul, Magny-Cours, Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps will surely be easy pickings for Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa once again.

Apr.22 (GMM) For the second consecutive race weekend, McLaren will at Barcelona again be housed in the farthest pit garages, as per its last place in the 2007 constructors' championship following the spying penalty.
Following a recent letter from FIA president Max Mosley to Bernie Ecclestone, the Mercedes-powered team's special dispensation to slot into the fifth highest garage allocation this year was cancelled after the Malaysian grand prix.
Mercedes' competition boss Norbert Haug on Tuesday confirmed to Motorsport Aktuell that the team will squeeze into the farthest garages at the Circuit de Catalunya this weekend.
McLaren, however, has been promised by Ecclestone that its huge 'Brand Centre' will be allocated enough paddock space, after fears that it would not fit into the areas normally reserved for the less successful teams' more modest motor homes.
Meanwhile, it emerged that Force India will unveil a new motor home in Spain this weekend.

Massa will win this weekend
Kimi: A close 2nd, so yes he will maintain his lead
BMW: Not as strong, but both in the points
McLaren: So so, Heikki will do well, Lewis will struggle.
The rest: Gd weekends for Trulli & Honda, Alonso won't qualify in the top 10.
Vettel will not finish and neither will Bourdais.
