The drivers can make many mistakes on this new circuit in case of hitting the wall or running widely off. If that happens the safety car will have to come out. You can never promise if the safety car will be deployed or not. With the pressure in the race added, some drivers WILL make mistakes. This makes the race even more interesting for me.

However, I would like to see Kimi back on the top of the podium. He really needs a win now to stay in the chmapionship battle.

yeah hope so.........and i think there is very very rare case of hitting barriers as the circuit is so wide if the drivers run wide also they will not damage cars

kubica is fastest in FP3 then followed by Bourdais and Rosberg. The Ferraris are 5th (Massa) and 15th (Räikkönen), the McLarens are 7th (Hamilton) and 14th (Kovalainen) and finally Heidfeld is 8th. I think the MCLarens and Ferraris ran with more fuel, so they may have practiced the quali session already.

nah i don't think that there will be rain. However, I didn't watch the FP3 session, so I don't know how the weather conditions are now.

If it rains it will be some spectacle.A new circuit in the rain should be great to watch.

you're right, a wet circuit would be the best ever condition. mayber there would be a maiden pole for one of the midfield drivers.

Pit garages look nice. ITV say that Trulli hasnt got his set-up right and Rosberg blames Webber for his uber-spin yesterday
