Monza was not due to his driver qualities, it was thanks to 2 wrong decissions, the wrong tyre choice in Qualifycation, and the wrong tyre choice at his pitstop. Ferrari hasn't won a rain race in ages!! ON THE TRACK :<>:

At Fuji last year,at Silverstone and Monaco this year Hamilton kicked everyone's butt.And you'd have to think he'll do it again if we get another wet race this year.

kinda, he was spun by Kubica remember and he still won. Brings back bad memories of James Allen saying [as LH crossed the line to win], "that was the drive of a champion" oh dear...

I agree about Silverstone, but in Monaco he was very lucky, he hitted the barrier hard, then got lucky with that SC, so when it rains you never know...i understand you "fan faith" but it really isn`t that granted, just look at Monza: friday pratice was raining hard, everyone was predicting an Hamiton`s win, but he failed. I don`t care who wins it, just want to see a nice F1 race.

These two forecasts tell a similar story: sub-20C temperatures all weekend, and the Otsuki forecast calls for rain in the morning

Gotemba weather forecast
Otsuki (Yamanashi) weather forecast

Here are a few links where you can see recent images from the local area:

Historically, when it rains on Fuji Speedway, it rains extremely hard. Last year’s near-torrential downpour meant the safety car was out for over half an hour.
