Im seeing a Ferrari 1-2 with kimi taking a well needed win to get back in the race for the championship. i would like to see hamilton throw it off the course because he's trying to push to the front but thats very unlikely but still a possiblity. massa could jump kimi at the start but i see him getting jumped in the pits if thats the case. sucks cause Speed channel isn't airing this live rather its being showing on Fox at 1:00 P.M. eastern time (U.S). so i might just get up early and watch the live timing on formula1.com and if kimi wins watch it when its shown. wish i lived in a country where F1 is the standard for motorsports. the rest of you guys are so lucky.
Go Kimi Go!!!!

gp2 race was with wet floor, but cars dry the track.

If not rain before, was 100% dry

Where did you get this information? When F~0~M says "no rain in the next 30 minutes" it doesn't mean that there will be rain in 30 minutes! ;)

Fingers crossed that Fernando can get a podium today!
Hope Trulli won't jump him at the start.

Interesting to see the lap times of Q3, compared to the times of Q2:
Raikkonen: 1,2 seconds slower
Massa: 1,4s slower
Hamilton: 1,4s slower (exactly!)
Alonso: 1,3s slower
After that the gap is getting bigger: 1,6s some 2 seconds, but Kubica 1,3s slower

Massa is apparently heavier than Raikkonen. Trulli says he hope it doesnt rain as he isnt good in it.
