They will just be slightly more irrelevant, depending on what the start is like.

- Alonso hasn't got the speed of Hamilton (not in the Renault)
- Engine issues are the sam for Massa
- Maybe Felipe is more experienced then Hami, but the pressure for Massa is higher I think, he's driving for his home crowd[/quote]


Not the same Engine Issues for Massa, he has a fresh one.
I can tell you that driving in front of home crowd is never a negative point. Here in brazil its just like a boost in performance. :D

After Felipe got the first place in the friday practice, hamilton gone crazy! Locking tyres all the time. Loosing the apex and never improving his lap time.
For what we've seen today. Pressure is on Hamilton shoulders.

The pressure definitely is on Hamilton's shoulders! EVERYONE expects him to win the title with such an easy lead, and everyone says he HAS TO do better than last year. While Massa is the "dark horse", his chances are fairly low so he can concentrate on having a good race in front of his home crowd instead of watching out carefully to get enough points.

Lewis Hamilton believes he is similar to Ayrton Senna and has revealed that he has based his approach to his career on the Brazilian three-time champion.

Hamilton, who can win the title at Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix, says he has admired Senna since childhood.

"I've always felt I had a connection with him, that we're somehow similar," he told Motor Sport magazine

Last year didnt he say he was going to visit Senna's grave? but never actually did.. :laugh1:

Montoya (remember him ? :roll:: ) : "I think Felipe will probably win the race, and if I was Lewis, I wouldn't be anywhere close to him. If Felipe comes anywhere near him, I would let him by'' :laugh1:

If you mean last year, then no. He said in an interview that although he wanted to visit Sennas grave, he didn't because he would have been mobbed by the fans (because it was publicized that he would visit) and that he would try and make a trip at a later date so he could pay his respects privately.

Massa is a LOT quicker than Hamilton in practice... I expect him to win from pole.
