May be he knows something that we will never know :cheezy:

Yes he definitely knows something and I think he thoght the same way but didn't want to be so arrogant!

In press conferences, Kimi is always cool and politic in respond to the questions. He always keeps saying "We'll see... We'll see..." But I saw him for the first time being so definite and certain. I think Ferrari will really be dominant like 2002 and 2004. I wish it won't.

A little view on the teams after the race:

Ferrari (RAI 1(Q)/1(R), MAS 3/2): A wonderfull race of Kimi and Massa. It was a solid win and the reliability is much better than it was last year. They're definitly the best team in F1 at the moment.

BMW Sauber (HEI 9/9, KUB 4/4): After their fantastic start into their third season, everyone expected them to win their first race, soon. But now the team has lost ground on McLaren and especially on Ferrari.

McLaren (HAM 5/3, KOV 6/DNF): Hard to say, where the McLaren team stands now. They definitly lost ground on Ferrari but they're still better than BMW Sauber. Good that Kovalainen is well after his huge crash on Sunday. However the McLaren teams have much work if they want to close up to Ferrari again.

Williams (ROS 15/DNF, NAK 12/7): Williams and especially Nakajima have done a great step forward. Until his engine failure Rosberg was likely to score important points. Instead Nakajima scored points for Williams. He does a great job for the team.

To Be Continued...

Hamilton won Kubica at the start really. In qualifying Kubica, ie BMW, was stronger and their race pace was similar to McLaren's. So I wouldn't say that BMW are behind McLaren yet.

Not at all. They're on the same level with McLaren. In Spain, they lapped consistently 1.22s, like McLaren and Ferrari, being adrifted just a few tenths.

Some people would not agree, they would say BMW is faster this season. Who is right - remains to be seen, and will be clear after 2008 Brasilian GP.

BMW's problems are with their poor starts. Kubica lost his pole position in Bahrain and in Spain he lost his position to Hamilton. So they will do much better if they improve their starts as that's usually the place where you gain most positions.

no, he said "We would have finished ahead of McLaren if we had started the race ahead of them. I think the performance levels are quite similar." - and this is 100% right. Kubi f&%ked up the start, no doubt, and basically presented Hamilton with 3rd spot. Hammy would never get him during the race.
