Opps when? They screwed up putting front wing, not anything with tyres. Well, I didn't see if they did anyway.

Of course I'm not totally aggressive about Ferrari but these two incidents are really some kind that a team like Ferrari shouldn't do.

Felipe Massa: It's a real shame ending up ninth on the grid because of a problem with my pit stop. I lost so much time as the mechanics had trouble changing the right rear wheel and I was unable to start my second run.

I know what happened to Massa. I mentioned the Kimi's incident in Monaco. I had already added Massa's and Domenicall's comment into my past. Domenicalli indeed says: "Problems such as the one that befell Felipe are serious and I am very sorry for him as we prevented him from giving it his best shot."

But come on, it's not a pit stop where you have to put a tyre in 3-4 seconds. You've lots of time to do that in Q3. It's really infamous incident. Not to mention, Massa will suffer dearly.

come on you can figure this out easily
webber might be lightly fuelled and it cannot compete the ferrari and if he can push hard he can pass heikki ( who knows he may have another bad luck) he's got a chance to win. he has reasons to be happy.

What if the conditions are like Germany 2000. Half the track is wet, while the remaining part is dry ! What setup would teams go for ?

if its half and half it wouldnt as difficult as it was in germany 2000 because silverstone is much smaller compared to the old hockenheimring

Really sorry for Felipe! It's gonna be hard to get to the front. Very hard!
I think Webber is going to make it interesting if Kimi and Hamilton doesn't overtake him at the start!

FORZA FERRARI!!! Flag:##
