Trulli lost the rear wing at breaking... Massa went out because of the oil Alonso left on the track.... just the same place, not the same reason...

A question: That curve was it like that (with asphalt) last year or it is new?

Kimi certainly, but I´m not sure about Massa. The car didn´t look as good as in France. A lot of understeer for a Ferrari.
Kimi was just running heavy I guess. Hamilton and Kovalainen are on the same level in terms of speed. Hamilton just needs to nail a lap without a mistake.

My prediction for qualifying is: Hamilton 1st
Kimi 2nd
Kovalainen 3rd
Massa 4th
Alonso 5th

Both McLarens haven't shown up on the podium at the same time since the 2007 Italian Grand Prix and they seem to only just outpace the BMW's. I'm going to say that Kimi will win, and Kovalainen could be second. The final place on the podium I'd say is a draw between Felipe, Lewis and Robert...

Looking at form both previous and now, I would say:
1. Raikkonen
2. Massa
3. Kovalainen
4. Hamilton
5. Kubica
6. Heidfeld

So I predict Ferraris then McLarens then BMWs!

Yeah, they got rid of the gravel at Stowe after 2002 I think. Copse got the same treatment.

I think Lewis was trying too hard, made slight mistakes on most laps. Kovi did well today. Massa looking OK too, and like someone said Kimi must be running heavy...

Looking forward to quali tomorrow :)

Historically it seems that Kimi concentrates on race pace through practice , Notice that he did not use soft tyres at all in P2.
I think Lewis will get the Pole & Kimi will win

watching it at silverstone, the Renaults look very edgy through Copse and the Red Bull's look very good as well. Raikkonen looked subdued but fast and the McLarens were pushing hard. By the way, i did not see one spin or crash from F1/GP2 but the speed of them down the main straight is unbelievable and there were sooo many people. Also, i have never seen so many places to eat, must have been +50 food stalls. ADVICE FOR OTHER PEOPLE: wear protective warm clothes if u r in grandstands- it was warn outside, but freezing in them today. They give you earplugs on the entrance and hand them out in cool Santander logo-ed tins. Anyone wants a Hamilton hat - stand by the Abbey corner grandstand - £7 and DC will be by the BullShop at 4.20pm.
