I´m living 120 kilometres (according to google earth) away from the circuit. At the weekend the weather was very hot and dry, today the same. I wonder what it´s gonna be like at the weekend.
I hope it stays dry for obvious reasons, in the wet Räikkönen and Massa are no match for Lewis.

Imao the championship is only between Lewis and Felipe, Kimi is done. I wish that he retires at the end of the year and Alonso joins Ferrari.

Kimi will certainly NOT come back, not at Spa and not at Monza. My hopes are with Felipe.

My prediction:

wet race -> Hamilton wins, Massa spins. :p

dry race -> Massa wins. (I don't think Hamilton will spin so no rhyme there :@:2 )

I don't think Kimi is all done for, but Massa has the momentum and everything going for him right now and it will be very very hard for Kimi to catch up. Massa looks like the stronger Ferrari driver at the moment.

Yeah, I wouldn't put it past Hamilton to go OTT in the wet, like going over-confidently into Eau Rouge or something. :pray:
Of course, I certainly wouldn't put it past Massa to crash at Eau Rouge in the wet. :)

But yeah, Hamilton is perfectly able to win in the wet, but I still hope for rain. We need a crazy race after Valencia.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Ferrari need to make sure they win Monza 1-2 it doesn't matter in which order, after that almost all the tracks favors Ferrari, and the better driver should get it...

the ideal scenario would be for Massa and hamilton to crash on the 1st corner and it's all back to square one if Kimi wins it

Don't know mate.. About the dry race win, what you say. It won't get hotter than 19 degrees, and that's good for the McLaren, but really not good for the Ferrari.. So a 1-2 in the dry is not certain...

If Kimi doesn't win at Spa, then Kimi won't win the title. Over. Full Stop. Thats all I need to say.
