I'd be suprised if Felipe didn't win.

It seems like he has a head of steam coming in with him to this event.

Only problem is if it rains in my opinion - McLaren has so much better traction in the wet.

Good idea Arrows_F1.
Let's look forward. Not backward..

I predicted a Kovalainen win. I think that SOMETHING might happen at Monza. I don't know what, but Kovy will be the one to pick up the pieces.

If all goes normally, i.e, not too hot, no mechanical failures for anyone, then it should be a Mac track. Mind you Felipe is on his 1st race with the engine he's on. The other title contender isn't.

My prediction: Ferrari on one-two and Kubica third. Kovaleinen 4th, 5) Jarno Trulli, 6th Lewis Hamilton, 7th Mark Webber and the last point goes to Alonso Flag:##

clarifying question: in the poll, 'Who will win the 2008 FORMULA 1 Italian Grand Prix ?' do we mean the guy that will take the checkered flag, or the one that will be declared as winner by 3 dudes?

I see Hamilton winning the race, but he will be striped of it because of the Ferrari International Assistace(FIA) who, will award the race to Massa.

i find interesting how alot of people have dropped kimi like hot potato now with only 2 votes out of 21, he is always seem like the clear leader in these poles.
im wondering whysome members of this forum have suddenly stoped backing him and i think it says alot about how much people belive in him.
why arnt people backing him? is it that they think is now the support driver for massa or that he is just not going to be as competitive as massa?
your thoughts please:

Maybe they are Ferrari's Fans , Not kimi :O

Reliability has been a problem for Ferrari. Massa lost a certain win at the Hungaroring with a con rod failure, a repeat of which eliminated Raikkonen at Valencia . ferrari are running more cooling because they are still worried about their engines, which is why they were slower in a straight line in spa and probably will be slower in a straight line in monza as well.

What is weather/track temperature forecast for monza?
Tyre compound ?

Here's a weather forecast..:

It's not typical Italy weather...
But for the tyres, I thought they will take the 2 hardest to Monza, the same as Spa, correct me if I'm wrong

Temperature will certainly play an important role. The autumnal Italian weather can be expected to provide warm-to-hot conditions that will suit Ferrari. Only on odd occasions, such as in 2004, has it been cool, which would play into McLaren’s hands.
This year Bridgestone are bringing tyre compounds one stage harder than they used at Monza last year: hard and medium, rather than medium and soft. Ferrari has claimed this will benefit McLaren (who ran away with last year’s race).

If it will be warm at Monza a ferrari will win. Massa or Raikkonen doesn´t matter.

i still voted for him. i think he is just as competitive as massa (if not more) and i will still support him until it is impossible for him to win the championship. and if he cant challenge for the championship, i will support massa

With warm conditions I'll say Ferrari 1-2 Massa leading (because of the championship situation), but if there is cold or rainy, it will be more interesting. I think I'll hope wet race, because then Kimi could have better chance to win and Massa/Hamilton maybe does DNF.
