Rain would make it exciting, specially if they start on dry and begins raining in the middle of the race!

Can Raikkonen go on a 1-stopper? I don't think he will

Just watched the Porsche Supercup Race and it was sunny. I really can't see it raining during the F1. And if it does rain don't bring this up :P

Fernando Alonso gave McLaren their 150th Grand Prix victory, leading teammate Lewis Hamilton to a dominant one-two around the streets of Monte Carlo.

Alonso led home teammate Hamilton in a formation finish, having dominated the whole afternoon. Third-placed Felipe Massa was a minute adrift of the McLarens by the flag, and the rest of the field was lapped.

The world champion established a seven-second lead over Hamilton in the opening laps before hitting traffic. That allowed Hamilton to close in, and having run three laps longer than Alonso in the first stint, the young Briton was only three seconds behind his teammate following the pit stops.

But Alonso pulled away again as the stint unfolded - his lead extending to nine seconds before his final pit visit. He then eased off following the stop, and the McLaren drivers proceeded to cruise to the flag in tandem, a result that gives them a shared championship lead.

Although Massa was never in contention for victory, he had no trouble staying clear of the rest of the pack.

Giancarlo Fisichella had a similarly lonely run to fourth, a two-stop strategy working well for the Renault driver as he quickly escaped from the cars behind in the opening stint and gained enough space to make his additional stop.

A 45-lap opening stint helped Robert Kubica jump from the bottom of the top ten to fifth, ahead of BMW teammate Nick Heidfeld, who ran an inverted strategy and used the super soft tyres for the first 32 laps before making an early single stop.

Alex Wurz came from 11th to seventh for Williams, holding off the closing Kimi Raikkonen in the final laps. The Ferrari moved up to 12th at the start, but had to wait until the pitstops before making further progress.

Another excellent start took Scott Speed up to 13th and the Toro Rosso then had enough pace to run close behind Raikkonen in traffic throughout the race. He eventually took ninth after the team's most competitive race yet.

The Hondas ended up 10th and 11th on an unusual two-stop strategy with a very long first stint and short final run on super-soft tyres.

Nico Rosberg's two-stop strategy went badly wrong - stuck behind the heavier Heidfeld after losing ground at the first corner, he dropped straight back into traffic after his first stop and could only finish 12th.

In a race of remarkably little incident, only Vitantonio Liuzzi and Adrian Sutil found the barriers, while gearbox problems made Mark Webber the only retirement among the top ten contenders.

Kimi is a great driver with an incredible bad luck and bad adaption to his new team.
Ferrari doesnt like to follow other cars. The aero is not good enough and Kimi is amongst the ones (Speed included) who gained places
Great performance by Macca ,oh Mclaren done it 1-2 in the race another 1-2 in qual ... something Ferrari havent done yet which shows that Mclaren are pertty strong this seaso

Such a dominance, difficult to believe. Alonso kept the race under control and Hamilton was the crazy boy going through the chicanes and hairpins in rally style :twisted: He still has go to learn what "slow down to maintain the 1-2" means :lol:

Massa, Fisi, Kubica, Heidfeld, Wurz, they all did they're respective consistant races, Raikkonen was quite unlucky with Button and then Heidfeld rejoining just in front of him.

Not even a single overtaking, just someone in backmarkers situation, like Sato passing Trulli :cheesy:

Championship situation is now McLaren at the front, but Ferrari with a better car for Canada and the USA, let's wait and see
