I bet it will be a dry race...... ^^

Hey just think about one thing : what happened if there is a Red flag on the start and someone break his car? can that driver take the T car or is he out of that race? Because we haven't got a red flag at the start since Monaco 2000 I believe and there is the rule that you must race an engine for two GPs...

autosport wrote:Tomorrow, rain is expected to arrive early in the morning in Sao Paulo, shortly after dawn. The showers will be light at first, before heavier rain moves in as the day progresses. The hours between 13:00 and 17:00 GMT are set to see the heaviest rainfall during the day, so the worst of the wet weather should be just beginning to move away as the race start occurs. Light rain is then expected at times throughout the race. In total, around 17 millimetres of rain is anticipated between dawn and the end of the race.

The forecast relies on a complex sequence of atmospheric events and the picture will become clearer in the morning when the rain bands can be tracked on radar. Shortly before our build up to the race, we will publish a further update on the status of the predicted showers, and the latest prospects for the race.

Lewis' perfect race:

Lap 1: Alonso doesn't kill me.
Lap 3: Don't get a penalty for causing a collision with Alonso
Lap 5: Don't press the pit lane speed limiter.
Last lap: Get 5th.

I doubt that will happen though. But I think he will be 3rd or worse.

One year since Alonso left McLaren.

2 Nov 2007: He leaves McLaren
2 Nov 2008: He could help McLaren... lose the WDC and WCC

A Brazilian newspaper wrote:
If Massa wins the Championship this season, he should retire; he will never get any close to the title then this year.
So the Brazilians have faith in their man :p
