yeah, Alonso will hold Massa up whilst Kimi will take Lewis, hell go ultra-conservative and finish 2nd and we'll get a surprise 3rd on the podium.

Hello , I missed the Quali :( :(

It wasn't spectaculair. Basically it was back to normal really, McLarens and Ferrari no problems comin through, Heidfeld very weak. And Q3 was also back to normal, with 6 laps for everyone.

BMW is very weak ..why blame Nick ..even Kubica just managed to get in q2 (p14).

I guess Ferrari tried some tactic game by sending Kimi lighter than both Massa and Hamilton to snatch the pole or even front row but it unfortunately faded. Even worse than they thoght cause Massa is nowhere near to fight for the lead if weather conditions doesn't decide play a part in the show. It can be another blow for Ferrari strategicly speaking. Massa has to pass Alonso in the first turn otherwise his championship hopes will quickly decrease.

Fuel load prediction = Massa > Kovalainen > Hamilton >= Raikkonen

Massa's problem is Alonso as Kovalainen always slips back on the starting grid,So Massa has to pass Alonso on the start then queue behind kimmi and lewis.Then will kimmi will allow massa to overtake him or he will fight for his championship??

What will Kimi do? to help Felipe or to help ferrari?... If he's behind Hamilton during the last laps, he may loose positions to give some more points to felipe... but, that's not good for Ferrari.
According to what he said on the press conference, seems that he is more interested on giving points to the team...

"It wasn't a perfect session. He (Massa) was complaining a little bit of lack of grip, but I think that our strategy is good for tomorrow so you know that's what we need as well. Formula One's so tight now, you have to do absolutely everything perfect, and I don't think the lap was absolutely perfect, and the car wasn't absolutely there for him as it usually is, so we're quite happy with our race pace so we'll wait and see tomorrow. "

Okay, BMW have been stronger this year, but Kubica is now 10 places better on the starting grid then Heidfeld, and Heidfeld also wasn't really good in practices either

I don't think they have such a bet about the fuel. On the italian television they interviewed many from ferrari and they were not much happy about Massa. They were expecting more... so, I don't think it's a strategic decision...
And for sure Massa is going to overtake Alonso easily... he has 1,4 km for that... the problem will be Kovalainen. Moreover, if Kimi takes the first place, he won't give it away for felipe...

Got up this morning Naturally at 6:30, was going to watch the Re-Run of the qualifying, must have been some sixth sense, but I can say that I am really happy with what went down.

Raikkonen, yes he had a lighter fuel load but throughout Q2 and most of Q1 he finally showed his superiority, yes this was probably due to his fuel load, but you still have to put the lap in, he has finally for 1 race at least shown Ferrari that he belongs there because he is going to play a massive part in the race tomorrow, for both Ferrari, him and Massa.

Now onto who I support, Hamilton, that final lap was immense and hopefully he can hold out on the Starting Grid tomorrow, I always hate the start of races when your man is on pole position because if he drops just slightly he will have 1-3 cars passing him, if this happens he is right in the clutches of Massa, but still a brilliant qualifying by Hamilton who really shone in the final lap and hopefully that strong 3rd place by Heikki can also prove critical in getting Hamilton his first World Drivers Championship.
