BMW doesn't look very strong here...


unless you started to watch F1 today - name ONE Friday practice (Thu in this case) when BMW looked strong... :roll::
This is normal at BMW - they will show their pace on Saturday.
I'm not saying Kubi will beat Kimi or Hammy for pole, but do not expect BMWs down the pack.

I think Kimi or Lewis will win but I hope Kubica wins :P

I also hope so :cool: . BTW, it would be an exciting race if it rained. Then a lot would happen and it would be a big challenge for all the drivers. I would be quite confident about Kubica since he drives very well in the rain.

I think this is Alonso's best chance to win this season.Renault always go well at Monaco,and if it rains without TC and engine braking he'll be in his element.If it rains,maybe someone like Rosberg or Webber could also win.Here's hoping for rain

By todays practice form i would say (if it doesnt rain) its just a Kimi v Lewis battle for pole- so long as they don't bin it in q1 or q2. but i still think someone like alonso or kubica could snatch pole. with rain anything can happen, its impossible to predict

Ferrari did well with the used soft tyres, but were struggling with the super soft ones on one lap:

That might give McLaren the necessary advantage to secure the front row.

So maybe Renault tried stiffening their suspension to lower the ride height, resulting in slgiht loss of grip in the rear, explaining both renaults sliding out in the decreasing radius corner on the lap, where you'd be on the throttle early.

Or maybe it's just two drivers having problems with the loss of TC :p

Latest weather forecasts indicate that we're gonna have a dry quali, but a possibility of a wet race: still too far into the future for accurate forecasts

From my point of view: Lewis really is the man to beat in Monte-Carlo :)
Surprisingly, Rosberg showing really strong, very nice pace!
