that'll be a much needed confidence boost for Piquet

At least until Q2 when they realize how fast the top guys really are.

Heidfeld just 11th on the grid and Rosberg last (maybe he will go on a 1-stop-race).

Wow, Alonso was good after all. And BMW wasn't impressive. I was surprised by Toyota's pace too. They're fast every now and then but not consistent.

An intelligent decision by Ferrari to call Kimi in at his last lap. It doesn't matter if you get the pole in a superior way or by just hundreths of seconds. Now he has an extra lap like he had last year. :wink:

I'm not been pathetically serious, I only commented maybe harshly that its a bit silly to laugh at drivers running wide in practice. I don't piss myself laughing every time Trulli spins. No need to be so arrogant about it.

i think Alonso will be on a 3-stop-strategy, as Trulli. However, the Toyotas have a good pace during the weekend so he could also be on a 2-stop-strategy

Ferrari as expected, Hamilton too. Alonso as or better than expected (4th as Canada, but show that canada was not a good luck qualifying).

BMW, very bad, even kubica had problem to go to q3 (heidfield don't get it). Trulli very good, or Glock very bad, not sure.

Kovalaynen, as always, very very bad!!!
