Massa once again proving to be the master of the most boring circuits in F1! I know it's early stages, but I'm predicting he'll win on Sunday.

1st FP Diary:

    Cool Massa
    I didn't understand what Kimi was doing
    Lock-up day for Hamilton
    Trulli spins again :p
    Renault strong but Alonso's engine blows at the end (ne penalty though 'cause it's Friday)

Low fuel, i think that he was testing qualifying setups, while seemed like all others focused to race setups, that could be reason for that huge margin to others. So don't count Kimi or Heikki out yet. We have seen, that Massa makes easily mistakes, more easily than Kimi or Heikki when under heavy pressure... :wave:

Thx for the results, I missed the session, but I'm going to watch the next one for sure.
But what was with Kimi then? :huh: Or do you just mean 4th place?
:nosweat:

Haha yes he really is! Turkey, Spain, Bahrain, and Magny Cours lol, all not too spectacular circuits.

Not a solid drive or fast lap, I mean. He might have been doing race simulation. But it's early days yet, nothing is certain.

Yet, I don't agree with you that Massa is that weak. He improved himself and started to drive consistently. In Canada, he lost valuable points due to bad strategy and fule rig problem. He's also strong in Monaco, except that a little mistake. He's a really threat, don't play down him.

I didn't downplay him. He isn't weak at all, his race at Canada was phenomenal, just like at Silverstone last year. He is a threat for everybody in the WDC. But I just found it funny that he most of time wins the most boring races.

In the second practice, on team radio, Kubica was told there will be a Safety Car period at the end of the session in order to test the new Safety Car regulation.

Good pace from Massa so far, yep. But I must say that I am very positively surprised by Vettel as well. He's putting in some very good laptimes indeed!

Actually good pace has been coming from Raikkonen consistently as he's running long stints and his lap times are always low 1.16 and even 1.15.999, which made him 2nd at the moment. Massa is doing 6-lap or 5-lap runs. Kimi had 12-lap and 13-lap runs.

Btw, nearly all drivers went oof-track at the end of Estoril.
