When you look at Hamiltons sectortimes, he's a tenth of a second faster than Raikkonen :thumbsup:

well this its very long track and you can get a very good set up for first sector or second sector but bad in third and you lost all the lap... becuase the times are for the whole lap not one sector


well i have to go to bed its very late this side of the world a have a good day

Massa is the only driver of the four who will use his 2nd engine for Spa. Kimi, Lewis and Heikki will use new engine at Spa and then the same engine at Monza. Hungary turned out to be some kind of an ironic advantage for Massa :)

If in Qualification we have those times (with those gaps) I better go for my pillow and sleep instead of watching the race... just 5 in the first second.... an abyss between the first and the last one...
Rain may be the solution...

so he won't :p

For anyone wandering about the Camera at la Source (The one that went Up/Down & Tilted), F~0~M were using one of these:

They also used one at Silverstone which gave the nice shots of Maggots, Becketts, Chapel & the cars going down the Hangar straght.

lol, F~0~M are getting all arty..

As for sector times, Lewis was quicker than Raikkonen in the middle sector, I.e. from Les Combes down to Stavelot (turn 16), but that's a long sector. A tenth in a long sector is not a great deal, and Raikkonen is caning him in sector 3 and just about pegging him in sector 1.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.
