I think Kimi Should have a good race after 2 disappointing races.Monaco no fault of his & canada lewis screwed up his race.He will be determined to do better.We can also expect the regular podium finishers like Massa,Kubica & Heikki maybe.For lewis it will a race for consolation as life without TC will be difficult plus a 10 spot grid penalty might make things diffcult for him.

My opinion is this: Scuderia Ferrari can and will make the 1-2 because of the two very bad races. They will appear strong and Kimi is going to make his miracle!!!

Ferrari's always been very strong here, I think it won't change a lot this year (on condition that it'll be a dry race, if not - anything can happen). Podium for Raikkonen, Massa and Kubica, and I hope Kovalainen will finally finish relatively high after so many disappointing races for him. I also wouldn't be surprised if Hamilton didn't finish the race - he'll be pushing very hard to gain some positions during the race.

what???, kovalainen stronger than any?. I think he is the worst driver on F1.

I hope any Reanult on podium, it's his home race. And really don't thing Piquet can do it, so only Alonso can get it.

I will enjoy with Kubica (1), Kimi (2), Alonso (3). And Hamilton is the new Ralf. Sure he crash with any

No way Kub or Alonso could challenge Ferrari's in France. No way. It will be Ferrari 1-2 followed by Kovalainen. Alonso far behind. What I think is Kubica and Heidfeld could beat Alonso. So:
1. Kimi
2. Massa
3. Kova
4. Kub
5. Heidfeld
6. Alonso
etc...

Reason: McLaren's and Ferrari's are way too fast to Renault, Alonso might beat Heidfeld, but he surely don't has change to fight from podium. And by the way it's his home race? There's only one driver who drives this race as his home race and it's Bourdais. It's renault's home race, but you can't call renault "his" so got you brains out of that damn coat rack and think again. At this moment you have to admit, that Kova is stronger than Alonso.

Hamilton have 10 places punishment. If he start 12 or 13, he must be 2 or 3 on q3. To get this, he must has a low fuel. Its very difficult to overtake (well, magny course have a great turn to do it), so maybe he fill his fuel tank, try 6 on g3, 16 on grid, try to overtake from 16 to 8 on race before first pit stop, and 2 more on pit

Who believe Alonso can get a good race on Spain?. Do you remember spain race?. Alonso can get great race when he is very motived, and France race, near spain, and Renault house.

If his car ended the race, I think sure top5, maybe top3. If he will had a little luck....

Luck and luck you then don't get it? Hamilton is only McLaren Alonso can beat in France. McLaren surely gives this time better strategy to Kova, if they don't they would be extremely stupid. If Alonso gets good starting place let's say about top 5 he would get good race. But still you don't remember, that he droved that second place in Spain's qualifying because he had low fuel. That's why he managed to drove to second place in that qualifying. He need same tactics in France too to get that close to front drivers in qualifying. And he has to come to pits earlier than others. :p

Renault before spain, was worst car than Ferrari, McLaren, BMW, Toyota, RedBull and Williams.

Today, Renault, seem only worst than Ferrari, McLaren and BMW. Now, seems better than Toyota (Piquet overtake both on Canada) William and RedBull.

So, it's true he must have low fuel for a good grid position, but not such low than Spain race. Remember than Alonso have 6 laps more on Canada. Pedro de la Rosa said to spanish TV, that Hamilton (mclaren) have no more than 2-4 laps. So maybe Alonso get 4 on canada with more fuel than Hamilton. If thats is true, Alonso can be 3 (Hamilton dropped ten places) with a good fuel charge.

If he get 3 on grid, do you believe he can be on podium?

Absolutely, definitely, irrevocably not. There will be at least 5 drivers from Ferrari, Mclaren and BMW in front of Alonso. Indeed, Hamilton can beat Alonso despite his penalty. Renault must first beat Red Bull, Toyota and Williams.
