Toro Rosso isn't hiding the fact that they were running light

Q. Tomorrow, what's achievable?

GA: I would be glad just to get in the points. I think most will depend on the climatic conditions and the levels of fuel – and we are lighter than most. That is for sure. The pole position does not come just because we are clever, we are obviously light.

I have to say it is going to be a difficult race. I do not fear the dry conditions that are expected and fuel on board will play an issue. Clearly we are on the light side but we will see how we can manage it, if we can go away or we stay with the pack. Let's see.


Meanwhile Ron Dennis said that Heikki has a "very good strategy" and some people think that he might be on one-stopper. We'll see...


Heikki must one stopping or he might be having a good strategy but can he make a quick start to lead or to maintain the position or he luck will not be with him like in Turkey

it'd be good just to get a non- Hamilton, massa or kimi winner. heikki would be cool or a new winner to become Winner 101.

i dont think a winner 101 will come unless an unwanted chian of icidents occur.And I dont think Heikki is one stopping. Even if he is, then I have lost faith that he is able to pull a gp win towards him. And please dont tell me not to judge him by his recent performance.

I think Vettel will be one of the first ones to stop. Maybe he is not the lightest car on the grid, but one of them. I think Webber and Rosberg are also very light, maybe Massa can get on the podium if he survives Lap 1. And always watch Vettel. It would be no surprise if he could get Toro Rosso's first ever podium tomorrow....

I think Alonso is fueled heavy. He and Renault knew that he (and the Renault) didn't have the pace, and he's no mug. I'm sure he and the Toyotas will be running heavy.

I dont think that Alonso is heavy on fuel instead i would say its Nick Heidfeld who is heavy on fuel watch out on him

Interesting side note, and pure fantasy - But what if Hamilton HAD been given a grid penalty instead for his actions at Spa? He could only have been moved back a further 5 places.. :)

I bet no-one predicted that Hamilton would Qualify this low..

And who might have predicated that Force India could make it to Q2 this year.Great effort by Fisi but can be hold on the position and overtake some cars to bring home team's first points.

I know for a fact that fuel in the car doesn't matter in wet conditions, so all the cars will be quite heavy. I think Rosberg is the heaviest. I think Vettel was just the fastest guy out there, he is the man to beat tomorrow.


Looking forward to the race!

ok my opinion about strategy:
VETTEL very light (they even said that 2 stop first stint short)
KOVVY light (2 stop)
WEBBER very light (2 stop first stint short)
BOURDAIS light ( 2 stop)
ROSBERG very light (2 stop first stin short)
MASSA medium load (2 stop with the option of 1 stop)
TRULLI medium load (2 stop with the option of 1 stop)
ALONSO medium heavy (1 stop with the option of 2 stop)
GLOCK heavy (1 stop)
HEIFIELD heavy (1 stop)

KUBICA RAIKKONEN HAMILTON they will decide the strategy load based on the weather they know that at least 4 or 5 driver are medium or heavy, if is dry the will do very light at the start and overtake a lot of people making 2 stop. If is very wet the will go nearly full load....if is damp they wil go medium with the option of 1 stop.

Certainly pit stop strategies will play an inportant role.Even the weather.If it keeps chaning in between no doubt we can get a surprise winner.But looking at grid position on Lewis& kimi I think they will be 1 stopping.
