The best thing to happen is Massa first Lewis 3rd as Massa will be 1 point behind Lewis, hopfully Lewis doesn't do a Schuy or anything like Japan to take Massa out! Or Kimi WDC, if Lewis get's a point penalty (it's possible), Massa does rubbish (DNF DNF) and Kubica does bad (8th DNF)


:) You are a comedian..


I don't seriosly think that would happen, I want Kubica to win but it is even more unlikly than what Kimi did last year. I want Hamilton to lose it and Massa to gain it. I don't think Massa is WDC quality but (I think) he's at his best now, he won't get much better. Hamilton has a lot to learn and should get much better so he will get be the WDC another time. If Lewis loses it again he might realize his aproach is wrong and consistancy is also a factor, Kubica has proven that. Kimi will be back next year! It would be nice to see Hamilton in the gravel traps again like last year, after learning a lot from it. I think Alonso will be 4th, not on the podium.

Quote of the day (by me): Hamilton's in the lead, so it's his championship to lose...like last year!

Good point, and I very much agree. I hate that element of the coverage. I don't mind seeing the mechanics or the odd model, but the dads and in some cases mums staring brazenly at the camera or looking really dissappointed just really annoys me aswell. :blink:

Then watch out China as Massa's whole family will be online in the pit :)

Q. You have your family here. How important is it to have them here in this situation?

FM: I think my family supports me 100 percent, in every time of my career. I think having people which you like, who are supporting you 100 percent who are my family my father, my mother and my wife. I think it is always very nice to sleep well during the evening, and thinking to do the job in the best way you can. Everyone is here, so hopefully we can have another boost on that.

Q. Are they too nervous?

FM: No. Maybe a little bit, but I think they are just here to support me. People outside always feel more than what you feel inside. I remember when I watch a race of my brother's, I was so nervous – and I never felt that inside the car. So I think outside is much more difficult.
