TS reports: at the last laps Kimi had asked who has the fastest lap and when he heard that Massa has it, he closed the radio and drove his amazing lap. !grin!

..Remember what happen @ Mclaren's home race ie. Silverstone :@:2
Mclaren are good @ high down force tracks
99.9% Ferrari will win home race...without a doubt!
I think this time it be will be Kimi ^cool^
...Unless some ppl consider Schumacher factor in pits :@:2

Hopefully Williams & BMW will do gr8 @ Monza.

Forza Schumacher ... get ready for this!

For Ferrari its not high speed or slow speed track ..its all about down force!

I think the question is not about high speeds. Indy is a slow track, except for the last turn and the long straight, and Canada is almost a street circuit. Monza, Silverstone and Istanbul are plenty of fast corners, as Spa too, so those tracks suits much more the Ferrari car. :T:@

Here are the facts and statistics from the Turkish Grand Prix.

Felipe Massa scored his fifth career win. His victory also means that the four drivers battling for the championship have three wins each.

The only other driver still mathematically capable of winning the championship is Nick Heidfeld.

Massa and Lewis Hamilton have scored all their wins this year from pole position.

Massa and team mate Kimi Raikkonen swapped third place in the drivers’ championship for the fourth race in a row. They are separated by one point, giving the Ferrari management no clear reason to favour one driver over another.

And Hamilton has started from the front row of the grid eight times, more than any other drivers. He has the best average starting position of any driver (2.83), followed by Alonso (3.33).

Comparing average starting positions of team mates is quite revealing:
Nico Rosberg 9.5 - 14.92 Alexander Wurz
Jarno Trulli 8.83 - 16.67 Ralf Schumacher
Mark Webber 9.75 - 14.17 David Coulthard

Heikki Kovalainen overtook team mate Giancarlo Fisichella in the points standings. He also has eight points finishes to Fisichella’ six.

Fernando Alonso marked his 100th participation in a Grand Prix weekend. In that time he has scored 18 wins and 18 seconds places, plus nine third and nine fourth places. He has failed to start twice: at Indianapolis in 2005 along with every other Michelin driver, and he did not take the restart in the 2001 Belgian Grand Prix having suffered gearbox failure on the first lap.

Mercedes commemorated the occasion by giving him a model of the W196 race car that Juan Manuel Fangio used to win four races in 1954. Ron Dennis said of the bulky gift: “We thought we would give you something heavy to throw at us…”

Only one driver retired from the race - Mark Webber - on the day before his 31st birthday. Adrian Sutil’s car stopped before the flag but he was classified. (More details on reliability in F1 over the past decade).

Alonso continued his unbroken run of points finishes this year. He has scored in the last 15 races in a row.

McLaren and Ferrari will have scored 300 points between them if McLaren are allowed to keep their points from Hungary. The maximum points they could have scored between them in this time is 348, which underlines their domination of the season so far.

Canada and USA was more twisty circuits than Monza. And that was McLaren's advantage, as Monza, it isn't that twisty. It has long straights and that then again, is Ferrari's advantage. :rule# :rule# So McLaren aren't gonne be nowhere as near in the RACE of Ferrari's. But they might be close to Ferrari's in qualifyings. So it's gonna be Ferrari's second 1-2 in a row. Then comes Spa- !cool!!!! !cool!!!! Though it is quite twisty, but it is too fast track. And there are allways little wind (in spa) and McLaren aren't good in windy conditions.
