i think kimi has a bit more fuel in his car so that he can stay out 1 or 2 laps longer than kovalainen

see the comparison below, in particular HUGE gap in case of Kube, Nick and Trulli. Especially Kube, who was P2 in Q2, just hundredths behind Massa, and then suddenly P5 overall... did they fuel him like a Jumbo Jet?

Q2 vs. Q3 comparison:
MAS--------26,192------27,62---1,425
KOV--------26,290------27,81---1,518
HAM--------26,48------27,92---1,446
RAI---------26,05------27,94---1,886
KUB---------26,13------28,39---2,261
WEB--------26,47------28,42---1,951
ALO--------26,52------28,42---1,900
TRU--------26,82------28,84---2,014
HEI---------26,61------28,88---2,275

Great info color ! Maybe they put a lot a fuel, maybe he did a small mistake, but this season he`s always been faster than Heidfeld, cool. Let`s wait for the race. There`s something about Massa and this circuit. How about Hamilton, taking risks to beat Ferrari choosing hard tires ends up beated by Heikki.

Possible... Or he hit traffic, etc. etc. He also said the car understeers heavily under race fuel load...
Anyway, we will know soon enough...

From the press conference:

Q: (Ian Parkes – The Press Association) Lewis, you have said you are very disappointed and your body language suggests you are not too happy if you don’t mind me saying…

LH: I just need the toilet, that’s all! And I’m really wondering whether Heikki’s really Finnish because his answers are longer than I’ve ever known!

:) I really wonder that too.

Well it's app. 150, 300, 400 and 550 $, however I didn't buy a ticket either. I'll be as free as a bird, if it's possible :) I can pay 70 $ for open area but I'll see tomorrow really. Not quite sure how it's gonna be ;)
