Penalties for DC, Vettel and Fisi: http://f1.gpupdate.net/en/news/2008/05/ ... d-penalty/

weather will be rain in the race and windy. also, the wet tyres will wear out easily as the tunnel will be dry, so that will cause yet another headache

that's a good point! also, they didn't have the chance to properly test the wet track setups... it will be interesting.

Well, it'll be very interesting !yahoo: . Finally, no TC, wet, narrow, difficult track !yahoo: . Now we'll see how good the drivers are :p

So it's going to be raining or not? If it's a mixed weather, it will be a total lottery in terms of pit stops. Then we might have some midfield team winning the race as you can't necessarily overtake the one ahead of you on this track even if you were 2 seconds faster.

Hi everyone! (my first post here ;)

We always wait for rain, always wait for races like Monaco 1996 but always (not always fortunately) track is drying... Today is that day too ;(

Looks like Lewis might be able to jump Kimi at the start.
Fantastic race ahead if the rain persists, hopefully.

Yes, can't see anyone running with dry tyres on the current weather conditions.
At least not in Monte Carlo.
Intermediates look the better choice over full wets, just in case the rain stops.
