What could be under Nandos's head right now? How can he be of a big help to his Latino friend Felipe?
Felipe should buy Kimi lotsa vodka tonight, then he'l get drunk and ram over Hamy's rear during the start....

If Heikki doesn't crash alonso and massa first... :) Team Work!!!

Considering Japan, maybe a start with yellow flag will be better... :p

What could it have make any difference if Felipe is not Latino? Why do you feel to express Latino word while trying to do reference their friendship? Then you should expect Heikki will help his compatriot Kimi right?

oooppss.. I am not trying to make any confusions here mate, I used the word " Latino" just to say they are of bought spanish speaking descent.. not to emphasize that they are of both same status as Kimi and Kova (compatriots), Nando is a European(spain) in which he speaks and understands as what Felipe's (Latin America-Brazil)

peace out :D

So what mate? Nearly all South America are bought Spanish speaking "whatsoever", then does it make Alonso or any other Spanish-spoken person friend of all continent? There are (or should be) some other dynamics of friendship or liking towards people other than roots or some other origin stuff. Alonso likes Felipe because he doesn't like Hamilton: The enemy of my enemy is my friend. That easy. Do not try to teach me who are who. I hate classifying things and people in this world in that way. Just that.

Same top four position on the grid as on 2007
1- Hamilton
2- Raikkonen
3- Massa
4- Alonso

So can we expect same race result as last year ?
1- Raikkonen

I feel Hamilton is really hooked up. First turn and start will be the key. Both Ferrari will be very aggressive, not to mention Alonso and Heikki. Lewis must get out trouble and that makes him a little bit conservative. Never ending first turn... What a start prospect.

I think everybody is aware of penaltys and stuff and I believe after the first corner it will be Hamy, Kimi, Massa. No Problemo
Hamy drove a fantastic qualifying, no doubt about that
Enjoy the race all of you! :thumbsup:

It doesn't make any difference as to how we can classify Felipe. As Ali has said, Fernando is willing to help Massa because he wants Mclaren & Lewis to lose as well as get into good books of the Ferrari boss. We shouldn't forget this, F1 is a sport which involves a lot of money. We really don't know what happens behind the scenes of F1, hence i won't count the statements issues in press as to one being supportive of another. If Toyota surges during the race Flavio would want Alonso securing places for Renault rather than helping Massa win the title.
