Alex Wurz: "Its too hot for the softer tyres, thats why the hard tyres were being used"
Ted Kravitz: "Do you think McLaren will be the best with their tyres"
Wurz: "Look, by the end of the first two stints they're gonna be so far ahead that they can walk the car home so it won't matter" :p

Qualy Analysis and Race Predictions
1)L Hamilton-another pole, will probably win the race pending a mechanical failure
2)H Kovalainen-Great position, should be able to hold on to 2nd as the overtaking is difficult
3)F Massa-Not to bad, 3rd is only hope for tommrrow and it's pretty much damage limitation at this point
4)R Kubica-Usual BMW form, might be able to fight for podium
5)T Glock-Was fantastic today, good chance to pick up some much needed points
6)K Raikkonen-Crappy, Crappy
7)F Alonso-Usual Renault form, also has a good chance to pick up some much needed points
8 )M Webber-Good position for Red Bull, needs to get a points finish
9)J Trulli-Outpaced by teammate, needs to get a points finish as well
10)N Piquet-Fantastic for him, needs to show the world he can get a good finish with no help of the saftey car

Mclaren is running away from Ferrari.....at this point expect a dominate mclaren season the rest of the way

As far as I know, they have to ask a question in order to organize such a lottery, let's say. It's a regulatory article if you want to make such a game. And they accordingly prepare a question(!) which is impossible not to know so that they want to be sure everyone will send an SMS or make a call. It's s..t trap, trick.

Then, Rob claims that Ferrari could snatch the pole if there was no traffic? Come on, easy guys!

I have to say, that Kovalainen may take his first victory. We all know how mistake-sensitive Lewis is when he gets cocky. And Glock.... he wasn't surprise to me. I knew that he's gonna go high. Trulli instead...

A car that does good at Monaco & Hungary has pretty good chance of being strong at joker tracks like Valencia and Singapore. Looks good for Lewis.

May be it wasn't that stupid to talk about FP1 & FP2 comparison between Hamilton and Massa. The qualifying did turn out to be that way .... Probably it was quite foolish observation by someone ...

Definitely the Mclaren team have made some improvement. I never believed that they did, but it seems more like it. They should be strong in street circuits of Singapore and Valencia. By the way do we have Suzuka in calendar this time ? The car on the overall looks good, so i am expecting them to be competitive even in Belgium and Brazil. Let's wait and see because Ferrari isn't going sleep and let Mclaren go on with title ...

Kovalainen for Victory is possible, but it all depends on how both the Mclaren's get away from the first 2 corners. If they are off w/o any trouble they can simply roar away from others in the race ... Hamilton has always been stronger in tracks like Canada, Hungary etc. So i won't be going easy on him since he has also got the urge to make it 3 wins in a row .. A possible resurrection of Mclaren lead at constructors.

Well Kovalainen's on the dirty side of the track at the start,which is a real disadvantage in Hungary.Also unless Hamilton makes a mistake,I can't see Heikki having the speed to win.
