Quick Recap :p
Last year, Home Race was nightmare for Ferrari.Massa had to retire due to technical reasons while Kimi's Ferrari didn't had enough pace to keep Hamilton behind even with single stop strategy.All in all Ferrari's complete package was not good enough. Mclaren had clean advantage with superb braking & using high Kerbs.
This year its seems Ferrari have resolve their hereditary kerb issues but reliability is still reason to worry and newly created to Major Tyre temperature issues.Only positive for would warm weather condition.

If Bridgestone bring the two hardest compounds again, they are MIA - McLaren International Assistance, because everyone knows, the hardest compounds favour the McLaren about 5 tenths per lap. Oh no, conspiracy...

If it stays cold and maybe even wet, the Vodafone cars will win it.

If Bridgestone bring softer tyres, (would be fair after Spa) and the temperatures go up a bit,
the scarlet red Ferrari, which stand for heart, blood and passion will take the win in front of the best crowd in the world.

That´s my prediction

I remember some years ago, when michelin returned to the F1 that a lot was said about why all the big teams no-Ferrari took Michelin instead of Bridgestone, and many said that was because Bridgestone worked just for Ferrari... We may count how many times the selection of tires this year has been better for Ferrari or McLaren... That could mean something...

I'm going to Monza on Sunday. If a Ferrari has a mechanical failure, probably is me.... Every time I go to a race Ferrari loose a car because Mechanical problems... remember last year?... or Spain 2002? I really bring them bad luck...hehe :) :) :) :)

And it's going to rain too.... who's the best in rain this year? :p :wave:

i still think kimi has the sprit of warrior morethan Massa .. even though kimi is far behind the top 2 contender .. but we still have 5 races to go and kimi could be back to contention .. Kimi or Massa winning isn't different as long as we the Tifosi see the reds dominate the home GP :) .. but Mclaren again will be competitive

Symonds from Renault and somebody from Ferrari (cant remember) said recently that the tyre compounds (which MIA=Bridgestone decided -.-)are too hard for the races remaining... :(
