yeah, i suppose, but i just hope that it'll be a close race at he front and in the midfield. i think Williams should do well here, but I fear a Vettel - Sutil Turn 1 collision on their home turf

yes that could happen. however, a start crash could happen everywhere in the field, also at the front (as we have seen in 2003)

Hamilton was fastest in testing today. Kimi over 3 tenths behind. At the silverstone test everbody said mclaren were just showing off, but it didn´t turn out to be that way. So i expect mclaren to be very strong again.
i expect a mclaren, a ferrari and a bmw on the podium.

i don´t think we´ll se a start crash because it shouldn´t be too difficult to get through the first corner with 20 cars. i really can´t remember the last start crash i´ve seen...must be a while ago?

btw: mclaren´s reliability is just awesome. hamilton didn´t suffer a single technical error since he´s in F1.

Maybe BMW will put Nick on pole, but I think he's not a threat for the win on sunday.. Hamilton looks to remain strong, after his stunning home win. But the weather will plat a role here, definately!! The weather in Holland (where I live) is often the same as in Germany (because we're neighbours :p ). At this moment the weather in Holland is really worse, no summer at all. The weather is very unlikely to change, according to the predictions for the doming week, so a wet race is, for sure, an option which is very likely...

Exactly. I live only a few kilometres off the border. It´s like early Oktober at the moment. But in southern Germany the weather is often different than in north or west germany. And Hockenheim is in "Baden" so there could be dry weather at the weekend.
But regardless of the wether, Hamilton is the favourite either way.

Kimi and Lewis will be neck and neck for the win there
It's difficult to say who will be the winner, they both are very close
And watch out for BMW as well, this is their home race and they have a lot of boost from the crowd

I think this race will boil down to Massa vs Kimi vs Hamilton. Hamilton is upbeat from his recent victory ... Raikkonen is also raring to go. Massa only doesn't seem to fit in time of aggression .. But i hope he can also jump in and fight ...

Well the way I see it, with everyone on a 2 bad races 1 great race cycle, it is the turn of Kimi Raikkonen. He may have to wrestle down a few eager photogs on the way to the grid but he got thé mad skillzzz for it.

And I would not be surprised to see a Kubica or Heidfelfd on the podium. With the exception of Hungary, this race is the closest to Kubica's Poland so I expect mad support for him.

Kubica will definitely find some support .. but i think he will have more support due to BMW .. Even Mercedes will have some support in this turf !

i think BMW Sauber will be back with a surprise. maybe they'll put Kubica or Heidfeld on pole position. However, i don't think they can win under normal conditions in the race

if he hasent it might be an advantage for ferrari duo



It seems that is not considering the testing times... (and please, don't say that ferrari was testing the race pace or that they were running with a cow over the car to make it slower and hide their out-of-this-world performance). Maybe Last victory inspired Lewis.
I think Lewis is going to win, but second and third will be the ferraris, but I cannot imagine which ferrari pilot is going to be ahead. Massa was faster in testing... but you never know how will be his performance.
And It may be the race where Kubica com back to be ahead of Heidfield. Heidfield just as Massa is not regular yet... the difference is that Heidfield may improve, but Massa won't.. he's like that.. erratic... and that's why he's never going to win a championship.

Lewis has driven here before, but not in an F1-car, don't which car he has driven... But I hope your right, Hamilton 1, Ferrari's 2 and 3. Then I think Raikkonen 2, and Massa 3, because in basic Raikkonen is fatser than Massa, like in basic Hamilton is faster than Kovalainen :thumbsup:
