Ofcourse he should bang to it in practice's or in qualifyings, Kimi had bad luck in Monaco, now it is Fernando's turn. :evil: :evil:

Nah, it wasn't wall of champions. It was straight after corner 9. Before L' Epingle (Corner 10)

Quick?? It wasn't quick in that moment. He had little steeringproblems, so Ferrari's almost passed him at last lap. So I think that it was amazing job from him. Oh, one thing: In 2003 Grand Prix du Canada Kimi comed from last place to 6th, so he has drived perfectly in Canada. Only in 2003, so I think that he has good changes to win this year's Grand Prix du Canada.

That's something similar to the pace I think we'll see in both Canada and the USA


Agreed with this assessment... Ferrari have the edge on equipment, McLaren have the better driver combo- team strategy might make the difference.

Maybe jean Todt will come to his sense and assign Kimi to support Massa. The Italian press are already beginning to demand it! :cheesy: hanging around with Montoya did no good to our Finnish hero! They both got fat and slow!

"I threw it all away in the qualifying," Raikkonen conceded.
"This was my mistake."

Teaissen optimistic about Montreal:
"Monaco has its own laws and its very own track characteristics. Montreal is a completely different matter," Theissen told his team's website.

"Our cars love to be let loose - and there are many long straights in Montreal. Therefore, we are entering that race with optimism."

Ferrari have not won at Monaco since 2001, whereas they have won the United States Grand Prix for the last 5 years in a row. A one-two for Ferrari would certainly help their championship hopes as they currently lie 20 points behind McLaren in the constructor’s championship.

I think BMW will be quicker, pushing the Mclaren and Ferrari's more. I think a podium is a good bet for them
