It was meant to be funny and a joke. ITV make an effort and people moan. Oh well they can't please everyone.

What a Qualifying! It must've been some time since we had such an incredibly close Qualy! Massa did everything he could to win the championship - he got pole, even if it is obvious that he's lighter, but having pole is an important step forward to the race win on Sunday. And since Trulli won't be much heavier and Raikkonen is going to support Massa, it's pretty certain that Massa will win - in case everything goes as planned. Now about Hamilton: He was too heavy seemingly, and that will just make things more complicated. He's 4th at the moment, at the worse side with less rubber, and seeing he needs to finish 5th, it's not looking too well. He might just screw it again under pressure. But we'll see.

Where's Sao Paolo on that map? What city is it in? I know it must be between Rio and Brasilia as the other cities are in different countries.

That forecast is very definitively saying wet race tomorrow.And if its dry Hamilton will still get 5th barring major problems.I'd be afraid of Alonso at turn 1 more than lacking pace to get 5th.

Probably, but not necessarily.. What if it catches Hamilton out in a lose-lose situation? Same for everyone. Hamilton needs order and certainty, not chaos.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

yes, but wet races are usually more of a lottery than dry ones, so Hamilton will want one, and seeing as Massas wet weather ability isn't great... But he may prove us wrong.

I don't think a wet race favours Hamilton:It un-favours Massa,if you see what I mean.But with clear vision maybe Massa can do what he did in the wet at Monaco,and not what he did at other wet races.Also Lewis will have Alonso and Vettel up his arse in the wet,and no vision from the cars in front.Massa may actually want rain as it gives more chance of Hamilton not scoring.

I'm watching qualy tomorrow...


Anyone feeling a silverstone repeat? Hamitlon 4th to 1st with the help of rain. Rain tomorrow?



I'm not, I think Brazil 03, or Germany 07...In both races some rubbish drivers went off...Schumy and Hamilton! Just Kidding! But I think it will be like that.

My prediction:

Maybe Hamilton DNF, Massa 3rd, Kova 2nd and Kimi win! Flag:##
I think Trulli could play a big part in the race, Kimi and Heikki have hard jobs. I don't think Hamilton's heavy, I don't think Massa's light. Kimi is same fuel load as Hamilton.

First corner - Massa, Kimi, Trulli, Hamilton, Alonso, Heikki...Alonso will be close to Lewis...don't know how close.

Edit:

Hamilton is set-up for a wet race


He wouldn't risk it. If it's wet he might win, he doesn't need to, if it's dry he's screwed!

If he had dry set up, If it's dry, he gets points, if it's wet he gets points.
