I'm actually happy that Truli got second instead of Kimi. Should be a Ferrari 1&2 right away :n .

Taken form an interview with Nelson Piquet(the older one >:P) for globo:

"Estou achando que Lewis Hamilton não passará da primeira curva da corrida."
"Para tricampeão mundial, tudo está conspirando a favor do título de Massa."

translating

I think that Lewis Hamilton will not make it through the turn 1 in the race.
For the three time world champioship winner, everything is conspiring for massa.

Team Work for tomorrow: Kimi cannot let Lewis overtake him. Kovalainen cannot let anyone overtake him to keep Lewis away from problems.. But McLarens are fast in S1 and S3, the places where the overtaking is done here... Kimi will have a hard work containing Lewis... If Lewis cares about take Kimi place...
And If there is rain, maybe no one of them may finish the race, because the second curve is a river when there is rain... (I mean a river... one or two centimeters thick of water). Just search a video with 2003's race highlights and you'll see what can happen...

He usually talk that bad about everyone... :sad:
There is a interview on youtube where he talks about several others pilots, and mainly said that all of them were bad pilots... in fact as far as I can remember, even his words for Senna weren't much nice...

Lewis Hamilton: "It would be nice to be further up, but with the strategy we have it’s quite good,” Hamilton told reporters after qualifying. It’s going to be a tough race for sure,” he added. “Ferrari have probably gone on a different strategy, which could be good or bad. But we’re in a great position.”
“(Pole Position) is where he needs to be,” he said. “All the best to him. I’m just focussing on my problem, I don’t need to do anything specific, just bring the car home.”

Wow, amazing comments coming from a man so close to Alonso.. Does he know something we don't? =)

Apparently Massa will be stopping on lap 13-14 and is probably on a 3 stop.

Senna was Piquet's main rival on Formula 1. The rumours about Senna sexuality started with Piquet jokes. :P

On brazilian forums, they say that Alonso is going to do a "totó" on hamilton.
Totó is a slang used in go-kart for that slightly touch on someone rear. :p

The circuit management made a "grooving" on that area (Curva do sol) and on (laranjinha, the uphill corner) to lead the water to the sewer and out of the track. So those problems that happened on 2003 race are gone. :D

To make sure there are no further questions, in 2003 the track wasnt that good and with alot of bumps. The water was retained between those bumps. With this new track, it reduced the bump problems by 99%.

The Grooving thing was made beside the track on the banking corners, to make sure the water dont slide to the track.
