Exactly... and maybe if its scheduled to hit at say... 14:00 local time which is right arround the start of the race, maybe they shoud start the race a bit sooner... but it all depends on what the weather forecast is gonna be in sunday...

Better to start earlier, than not at all :D
I know Bernie had his TV time scheduled but...

Waw indeed :p
Kimi will win this one I think, Hamilton has to improve to be crowned Champ this weekend, Alonso is 2nd Massa 3rd, means that the gap will be 9 points after this weekend, don't think Lewis is Champ after this weekend ''hmm'' ::oops:;

3rd Practice Results:

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/63054
Kimi Raikkonen completed his domination of Shanghai practice by setting the fastest time in the final session, despite stopping on track in the closing moments.

Having been quickest in both Friday sessions, Raikkonen proceeded to hold the top spot for most of this morning's practice as well.

The Ferrari driver's first run was half a second clear of the opposition, and although his main rivals closed in during the second runs, Raikkonen remained on top by 0.026 seconds from Fernando Alonso.

None of the top four managed to improve their times on soft tyres at the end of the session, despite new fastest times being set in the first two sectors.

Raikkonen completed his lap first, but then slowed dramatically on the following lap and had to pull off the track at Turn 10.

With no-one else able to improve, his position at the head of the times remained safe, but the apparent mechanical failure will be a concern with two hours to go before qualifying.

all set to watch the qualifying now... only a minute or so away...

i would like to express my disgust in the stewards desicion to not penalise hamilton... just give himthe title now, ad next yars, and the one after that!
with eeryone on his side, its impossible to see how he can loose!
PATHETIC!
Thankyou Schumi you will always have a place in our hearts!
