And how is FIA gonna handle the pressure from the drivers and teams about blocking other drivers?! My personal opinion about the penelty for blocking Heidfeld was just so wrong. Heidfeld must understand that he cant just go out when its 30 sec left and think that everybody will move out of the way. Especally whens its Q1 we are talking about, then everybody is trying thier best.

Bourdais was on a out lap, Heidfeld was on a hot lap its quite clear to see who's fault it is so Bourdais should get out of the way.I'm afraid theres no rule about when you can go out to do a lap so basically you've got it wrong.

off topic: Bourdais was in the last corner. and that makes no dofference whether he was on an outlap or flying lap.heidfied on the other hand wa not fast. He might have not done enough to claer q1. but he just got an excuse to make.



:thumbsup: , We can just hope on good racing this weekend!

Hamilton says he thinks the consistency will be the key to be crowned Champion in this year:

that's not a new thing, everybody has been saying that. and true it is, much like kimi in the second half of the season last year.

after the first half of the season last year, many said that kimi would just have a mathematical chance of winning the championship (i think he was 20 points behind hamilton, after last year's hungarian grand prix). And in the end he was champion and not Hamilton. Let's see what he can do this year.
I don't expect that it will be as easy as it was last year. Hamilton won't make these mistakes again...

i think its going to go down to the wire between Kimi and Lewis: The two BMWs are out of it, as is Heikki and I expect Massa to fall away to 3rd and stay there as the next tracks, Valencia, Spa, Monza would tend to suggest to favour Kimi, so maybe Ferrari will throw their support to Kimi. Lewis will not make the mistakes again, he said last year that he now knows how to fight for the title, rather than being determined to win the race, settle for 2nd and the 8 points with it. If he can get close to Kimi at Spa, or anyone except Massa, I think Kimi (the little emotion that shows) may become disheartened. Hes just not as good or strong as his Macca days.

Valencia GP is a mixed circuit with some Monaco characteristics together with Monza's flat out features, which makes the race a unique one. Top speed (~320 km/h) and average speed (~225 km/h) are not that low compared to those of Hungary & Monaco (even Bahrain) so we can expect a close battle between McLaren and Ferrari. I think the track will favor both teams equally. Ferrari may have little edge as they did testing in hot conditions at the begining of the season and they achieve better tyre management under hot conditions but still they're not my favourites. McLaren will also be stronger.

Btw, Red Bull girl in the video told that engines won't be pushed so much due to tight and twisty characteristics of track, which is wrong. There are some long straights in the track and hp demand and reliability gained from the engine will be crucial. I hope Red Bull won't watch that video :)

i hope in the race day will be different, but this "track" does not look like a race track for me, it is more to a construction site than a formula 1 track, especially a street track

That's not necessarily a bad thing.Giorgio Pantano said the track's like Montreal and I agree with him.A fairly quick track with all the idiosyncracies of a street circuit(close barriers,manhole covers,dust etc).And if we get even half the entertainment Montreal provides it will be a great race.

Hamilton’s bags stolen :oh:

Quote:
Lewis Hamilton is reported to have had his bags stolen at a Spanish hotel. The F1 ace was checking out of the Malaga Palacio in the Costa del Sol with girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger when thieves grabbed his rucksack and a leather holdall from the open boot of his hired Mercedes.

Hamilton’s bodyguards gave chase but the thieves disappeared into the crowd and the bodyguards were unable to catch them. Witnesses to the event have said that the thieves looked like opportunists and were probably not specifically targeting the star.

Hamilton was in the city because Scherzinger was performing there with her band, the Pussycat Dolls
