sorry, its relief rainfall, when the moisture in the clouds cool as it gets nearer higher ground leading to rain.

Ooh, I am really hoping the rain comes on race day. Not just because Hamilton is supreme in the rain but simply for the fact a rained on grand prix always comes with excitement, and this is what we need at the tail end of the year, last year we had Hamiltons cock up in China, going for glory this year lets hope we don't see it again and lets hope it does rain so we can have a good Grand Prix. :)

Maybe Massa will blame losing the championship on global warming causing more wet weather...

Hamiltons not supreme in the rain, he's good sometimes, and bad other times. What about Monza qualifying? China last year...he's good but I wouldn't say supreme...

Well compared to Massa in the wet Hamilton is supreme.Massa's driving in the wet often reminds me of the constantly spinning drum in washing machines.In Hamilton's career he's competed in 6 races that were wet or partly wet.He's won 3 (4 if you count Spa).Massa was gifted 1.Fact.

I would say Hamilton is Supreme, the qualifying cannot be taken into account, he was on the wrong tyres, how is a man meant to qualify to his best on the wrong tyres, and China, he was in his rookie year and he could have won the title, if it was Kimi, Schumacher, Massa, Mika infact anyone they would have done the same as Hamilton, rookie year, chance to change even more records, but sadly it went wrong, so I stand by what I said, Hamilton is supreme in the wet.


And to all the positives about my avatar, thankyou. :shhh:
