Talking points:

Can anyone stop Brawn?
Can Ferrari mount a significant challenge for Massa's 4 in a row or will Red Bull be the serious threat
Will Toyota be a threat?
Will Hamilton try a 3 stop strategy again?
Can Kovalainen finish?
Will Force India score their first points?

Will this race be a drama for McLaren? Yes; turn 8 will be a disaster!

Talking Points:
Can anyone stop Brawn? No
Can Ferrari mount a significant challenge for Massa's 4 in a row or will Red Bull be the serious threat? RBR, not Ferrari, Massa won't win for 4th time
Will Toyota be a threat? Nope
Will Hamilton try a 3 stop strategy again? It won't help
Can Kovalainen finish? Yes
Will Force India score their first points? Little chance, don't think so

I hope Button does not win this time. I'm already glad we're not hearing "Senna-esque!!!!" anymore, but I'm starting to get annoyed by the "Schumacher-like" tag being pinned on Button.

we should see more of this...

His tyre blew at T8 and it properly went at T9, because his aggressive driving style does not suits this circuit.

Button has prove to us on what he said over the past nine years.
Give him the right machine and then he will deliver his job excellently.
Button-brawn will unstopable on this track too. :zz:

But Massa has a great chance to beat button-brawn for the turkey gp if ferrari keep improve their pace with zero reliability and operational failure. I'm sure massa well motivated to fight at his winning track. :roll::

But..since kimi score the first point of the season for ferrari and he also get the first podium for ferrari. I eagerly hope kimi will give ferrari their first win. :)

I see a Massa - Raikkonen - Button.

And I think Vettel, Barrichello and Hamilton will have on this track tyres problem like in Monaco
Jean Todt, Ross Brawn, Rory Byrne, Michael Schumacher = DREAM TEAM

Why? This track is completely the reversal of Monaco and similar to Barcelona/Bahrain, so it'll be RBR v Brawn with Ferrari 3rd best and McLaren nowhere

Red Bull should do well, its similar to Sepang and Shanghai where they did well. Downforce is more important than Monaco, so Ferrari probably won't be challenging for the win.
