BMW had every right to "cry" in Malaysia. It was incredibly dangerous. I think Alonso should be punished, regardless whether he did it on purpose. McLaren blocked BMW+Renault in Malaysia which was un-intentional, so why shouldn't Alonso be punished?



yep, you're true about malaysia- but i cant really judge 100% truthfully until ive seen the footage- was this raikkonen's final run- i'll judge properly when ive seen a video of it.

Alonso did not block anyone. He was just in out lap with Massa and Massa decided to pass him to get more room.

But can someone explain me why the RBR drivers only did one lap I mean I know there not the fastest but you can atleast try, anyway good lap from webber ;)


Webber did go out to do a lap early on, but he felt it wouldn't be good enough and aborted it to save fuel.

I hope that Raikkonen does not overtake both McLarens during the start. It would make it a dull race since he would not go too hard at Massa since he has a nice point lead. But yeah, the race is red.

Massa - warming tyres for start will be critical

With cooler than usual conditions at this year's Turkish Grand Prix, pole-sitter and Istanbul circuit expert Felipe Massa says that getting the tyres warmed up properly on the way to the grid will be critical.

"The temperature is pretty low compared to what we're used to having here in the past but it's the same for everybody and you just need to make sure you warm up the tyres in the right way before going to the grid and also making the right choice of tyres, in order not to lose any grip but also to try to use the best tyres at the right time," Massa said.

"The difference between the hard and the soft here is not so big, so it's important to chose the right one," he added.

Who has the advantage in warm-up the tires, McLaren o Ferrari?

i think McLaren warms up their tyres quicker than the other teams we saw that in FP1,Fp2, they were fast when others were struggling with the low temperature of the tyres..But today the weather looks good i don't thnik there'll be problem about that..

2008 Petrol Ofisi Turkish Grand Prix

Post by phil1993 » 11 May 2008, 08:58

Watching GP2, Bruno Senna has just hit (and killed) a stray dog who ran onto the track on the staright after turn 9. that wont go down well. Replays show that the dog was running across the track as Senna was driving down it and bruno's left front tyre met the dog. iSport team boss says that 'it should not happen, it could of caused a serious injury. we were used to that in the 60s but not today'.

Lets hope nothing happens like this in the main F1 race later today

why am i a sicko? i dont like dogs admittedly, but i dont want cruelty to animals. its dangerous, look what happened to Christiano da Matta when he hit a deer. I know a dog is smaller than a deer, but this cannot happen in the F1 race. TV didnt show the replays of when they met, but stopped the video just as you saw the dog tocuhing the car. was a good race as well, won by Romain Grosjean.

Hey there, Iceman :wave: Nice to hear from you. @Hug

I was just reading the news about the dog. Poor thing :sad: It reminded me of a similar incident in the FIA GT race last year in Bucharest, my home town. But that time around, the dog was very cautios :p and got out of the way quickly, so nothing happened.
