I've just read this piece of news.

F1 Live wrote:
Lewis Hamilton has rattled Fernando Alonso. That is the claim of former triple champion Sir Jackie Stewart, who after watching Friday practice from the pit lane at Barcelona said he had seldom seen McLaren's 25-year-old make so many mistakes.

"He missed the apex of one turn completely this morning," said Stewart, after rookie Hamilton led the pace in the morning. Alonso was then quickest in the second session.

Stewart continued to observe to the Telegraph: "He made three big mistakes. He was over-driving. After the first mistake he should have backed off. Instead he compounded it by carrying on."

"Usually he is so smooth. I don't think there is any question that Alonso is feeling it. Hamilton's brilliant start has definitely given him something to think about.
"

In another British newspaper, however, fellow former champion Niki Lauda said Alonso may simply be feeling the heat of his home race, where on Friday an incredible 67,000 Spaniards filled the stands.

A sell-out crowd of 145,000 is expected on Sunday.

"It does bring with it its own sort of pressure," the Austrian told The Guardian, referring to home races.

"Having said that, I think that Fernando has what it takes to handle whatever pressure is thrown at him."


It looks like Alonso is getting a little scared of his teammate's performance. I hope for him that he'll win his home race, because the next race is certainly going to go into the pocket of Kimi or Lewis :D.

Looks like Massa has alot more improved than people think

3 qualifying sessions 3 poles, cant be wrong. Kimi did a good job too. I just have a feeling that alonso was running VERY light which means kimi is likely to beat two maccas.

Felipe Massa took his third consecutive pole position in qualifying for the Spanish Grand Prix, beating local hero Fernando Alonso by just 0.030 seconds.

The world champion's first flying lap of Q3 had put him over four tenths of a second clear of the two Ferraris and Lewis Hamilton, who were covered by just 0.147 seconds at the time.

Kimi Raikkonen and Hamilton were unable to make sufficient improvements on their final runs, but Massa found 0.7 seconds on his second attempt and grabbed a shock pole position - reversing the trend set by McLaren's run of fastest times in practice.

Alonso improved his time, but fell just short and had to settle for second, ahead of Raikkonen and Hamilton.

Robert Kubica took fifth, with Toyota's Jarno Trulli splitting the BMWs in sixth place.

Renault's Heikki Kovalainen made it into the top ten for the first time in his Formula One career and qualified eighth, two places and 0.3 seconds ahead of teammate Giancarlo Fisichella.

David Coulthard will start between the Renaults in ninth, having also made his first Q1 appearance of 2007.

Nico Rosberg (Williams) was the fastest of those to miss the top ten cut and will start 11th, ahead of Rubens Barrichello, who outqualified his Honda teammate Jenson Button by two positions.

The Super Aguris had no problem getting out of Q1, but their challenge faltered in Q2. Takuma Sato managed to qualify 13th before stopping on track after his first run , while Anthony Davidson went off the road on both his flying laps - first at Turn 3, then with a spin across the Turn 9 gravel.

Davidson consequently failed to set a time, but will start 15th ahead of Vitantonio Liuzzi, whose Toro Rosso developed a transmission problem and failed to leave the garage in Q2.

The same issue consigned Liuzzi's teammate Scott Speed to last on the grid.

Mark Webber was also in trouble in Q1, ending up 19th after a hydraulic glitch halted his Red Bull.

He was one of several big names eliminated at the first qualifying cut-off, as Toyota's Ralf Schumacher and Williams' Alex Wurz were also knocked out early. Both cited traffic for their failure to improve on 17th and 18th.

The Spykers will start 20th and 21st, Adrian Sutil outqualifying Christijan Albers after the Dutch driver visited the Turn 9 gravel on his last flying lap.

i'm sure whatever estragegy fernando has, it is a strategy for the win so you cannot be so certain that kimi will do that, also what about lewis, i'm sure he's quite heavy aswell :P
