Ok, then, I still predict a surprise winner. I'll stick with Kovalainen.

or Maybe Alonso :p ?


If I predict an Alonso win, it just won't happen, mate. So I don't. But of course I secretly hope. :pray: and pray..


I did!

Well I was tired and just gave in to wishful thinking. :p

Truth is that Renault probably is going to suck big time - not even the normal optimists like Pat S predict that Renault is going to do especially well in Monza. But with a bit of rain and a bit of luck (or rather heaps of luck) even pigs - or Renaults - might fly....perhaps... :pray:

Well as Renault have possibly the worst engine in F1 on the fastest track this year they better get on their hands and knees and do some sort of rain dance.

Oh, don't worry, me and Suntrek will no doubt be rain-dancing all Sunday morning. As for worst engine, Spa isn't exactly a slow circuit, is it? And look what 'Nando did there. Secondly, he's on his first use of this engine. It's not exactly looking peachy, but not looking massively bad either. Renault seemed to have solved their inherent handling and traction problems, to an extent.

But still, Kovy ftw!!

well ferrari engine looks promising for speed rather than reliability. Sutil was actually one of the fastest in the speed traps in radillion in spa.

weather :

Friday:

So according to this: no rain or light rain in the first FP, but rain and possible T-storm in the second practice

Saturday:

As you can see, saturday is predicted to be a very wet day with also likely thunderstorms. This could get interesting.

And then the most important for almost everybody, sunday:

rain is likely to hit the track during the race.

Cheers, mate, I'll definitely stamp around in a circle, chanting in a strange foreign language ("Ich will Regenschauer nach Monza!!"). I would also urge any Italian members of this forum to get their lawnmowers out on Sunday, at about 12:45 time..

Massa will win and take pole if its dry. But sadly the weather dosent look that great. So I think Hamilton will win the race if it's raining....Kimi, well you never know what he will do, he can crash but also win the race.

Just wanna send a thought to Ronnie Peterson, 30 years ago he past away. RIP Ronnie!

I can do the German version, you can chant in Swedish "Jag vill ha regn på Monza" - easy :) ) Though according to the weather reports rain dances seem unnecessary - we don't want to flood the track completely, do we? :blink:

I think they'll do some kind of remembrance ceremony for Ronnie on Sunday in Monza.

Fantastic pics from Ronnie's career.

True, maybe we don't want Fuji levels of rain. But you know on GP weekends when rain is forecast (like half the GPs this year) it dissappoints, like Magny-Cours, and Germany (where the GP2 feature race was funny as hell).

OFF TOPIC Question: how does the "a" sound with that circular accent thing above it? I know that ä sounds like "eh" in German, is this different? And in which case, how phonically does it sound?

Back ON TOPIC:
Track looks wet, huh? Plumes of spray before Ascari, the second chicane is catching people out.
