Massa and Kimi are quite similar in that they need to be on pole to win a race. If Kimi starts in front its over. Whereas Massa struggles with driver mistakes even when he's in front. I love watching the first 10 or so laps because thats where all the action happens.

Not bad, but you should remember, that Kimi can win race too from far behind, if he uses one stop strategy and doesn't stuck to Trulli train or what so ever (Japan 2005) So Yes, Kimi can win this race if he gets first position at first corners.

it is very difficult to overtake in spain, best chance to do that is in the pitstops..hmm do u think Alonso past felipe at turn1.
There might be that Kimi and Lewis are both on heavyload... Let´s wait and see tomorrow. Only the race counts

I think that Massa can win if he keep his pole at turn1, the strategy should make the difference then :)

That's going to be really tough 1st corner. I'm waiting for Lewis's breakthrough!

I hope Kimi wins :P, but it would be cool if Lewis won this one.

None talked about the new McLaren front wing, which seems to be flexible and so, illegal.

The "dirty" side of the grid in Barcelona is not very much dirty, there's the same grip in both sides, so I hope Alonso will take the inside of Massa into T1. If he doesn't, then the heaviest of both will take the win.

Coulthard 9th and still not happy :lol: Let's see what they can do, I really wanna see Webber coming through the field :P

any type of modifications to the car can bring lots of aero diffeciencies.Either the car will excel or it will be in deep trouble,
I dont think webber will come through becuase even after an Newet designed car and renault engines the car dosent look much competitive.And coulthard in 9th is a surprise ,maybe the experience counts in this case.

regarding the mclaren front wing we cannot say whether its legal or illegal.Anyways if the teams will see any signs they will be reporting this to the marshal.
