not cool in such good car

Most of the time he was heavier than Hamilton. And for races, McLaren used him (or abused his unluck) as a strategy tester in order to back Hamilton.


maybe u're right, but if he is good driver he should be a few times on podium and be a few places higher

Australia - 2 ( race - 5 ) - Caught out by SC
Malaysia - 3 ( race - 3 ) - Penalty
Bahrain - 5 ( race - 5 ) _ McLaren wasn't that quick
Spain - 6 ( race - accident ) - Was leading when he had his accident (yet to pit)
Turkey - 2 ( race - 12 ) - Puncture
Monaco - 4 ( race - 8 ) - Stall
Canada - 7 ( race - 9 ) - Bad Strategy

You surely can't tell us that hes a bad driver when on a number of times he been heavier then Hamilton and when fuel corrected out qualified him.

After so much bad luck Kovalainen desperately needs a good result to get his self-confidence back. He's just waiting for the right chance to clinch his maiden win. :)

nah, think McLaren will be the second fastest team here, Ferrari will have the upperhand. They'll do a very bad job if they won't win this race. Cause they won't be bothered by Hamilton, and his unbelieveble pace, last two races...

"Mentally, it’s just something that you learn to overcome quickly,” said the Englishman of the penalty. “We’ve already looked at the best ways of optimising the strategy to help us move up the field and I guess I’ll just have to pass some cars if I want to get into the points!"


Wow Hammy boy, are you god? and are you that good?

All he said was he had to pass some cars and be on good strategy. Nothing really arrogant (if thats the right word) about it.

As usual at this circuit, I expect a pretty uneventful race in terms of challenging for the lead. Ferrari are inevitably the favourites so the action looks like it'll be in the race for third. I'd like to see Heikki have some luck, and put in a decent drive!

My prediction is one Ferrari will win this race. Don´t know if Kimi or Felipe..Hamilton will have his usual luck and finish in 3rd or 4th position, although he has to start frm 11th at max. Kubica on the podium as well.

Yep, its not arrogant really, its just foolishness on the infamous Hammy blunders...so what could we expect? great race from him? nahhh just too much Hammy yadah yadah from the commentators, what a waste to hear.

Sorry, got off topic from my post above..

nevertheless, the Frenchie circuit will be "Red-routed" again, a 1-2 I guess, 1-3 will be unlucky.

It will most probably be a Ferrari 1-2. Most probably Kimi will win after his disastrous previous 2 races (0 points in both) but cannot rule out Felipe (pole, fastest lap and 2nd in 2007). Kubica will be third and keep his lead, Kova will rediscover his from to get to fourth, and Heidfeld fifth. Hamilton can only get sixth or lower.....
