Hamilton will start the race so behind for the first time in his racing career, which may be very diffucult for him to handle the situation in such a rainy race at such a turn like Turn 1. Action packed Turn 1 is waiting for us :)

A look at the speed trap times from qualifying shows Massa was over 7kph slower than any other driver, and 22kph slower than Raikkonen. Has he run a higher-downforce rear wing in anticipation of wet conditions?

If Massa was only 6th with a semi-wet setup he's in serious trouble.In the dry he's a sitting duck,and in the wet he's not very quick either.

I worry that Lewis will be over-ambitious overtaking whether it be turn 1 or mid-race. I hope with him starting low down he won't feel as under pressure as when he does like in Bahrain situatuions.

Vettel is top of all three of the sector speeds, suggesting he did his time with a fairly dry setup.
