1. Hamilton 2. Vettel 3. Barrichello?


i hope the race will be wet from start to finish (a dry race will be fine, though).....NO to changing conditions, esp. dry to wet....'coz all of us will definitely have a heart attack! (although this scenario would definitely spice things up a lot!!!)

some funny comments from massa - regarding his lucky underpants :laugh1:

Something he will be relying on at Interlagos this weekend are his trusty underpants, which he has worn for each of his 14 career pole positions and ten wins.

"Who knows, maybe if I am champion (on Sunday) it will be time to retire them," Massa laughed.

Reporters in Brazil marvelled at the fact that, after exerting himself to pole position on Saturdays, he has not opted for a clean pair of underpants for the race.

"Do I wash them?" he answered. "Maybe I will ask you - have you never worn the same underpants two days in a row?"

It's a real comment!

On the Kimi forum people have been talking about it for a day or two. Also he told the story about his first trip to Intalagos, he was like a delivery boy, delivering food to the teams. He can get quite chatty sometimes. Have you noticed that he is the only one who normally speaks on the grid.

Wrong, they only have measurements and weights they have to be within. And not be sponsors logos.

Arguably, that does resemble a cup (if you look at it in 2D) unlike the Santander trophies. I think they'll easily get away with that one. It looks good.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.
