Good practice session, even though we can't tell too much from the prac. sessions, looks like Honda have improved, and maybe Williams and Renault also.
Here is the video of Hamilton's crach:

if you think DC is lucky and albers is a great driver, you must be on drugs!!

albers was good when driving a DTM car, but now hes in F1 hes pretty bad, and you could blame it on the car and the team all u like but i still think he has a lot to prove!

DC on the other hand has proved this season (bearing in mind hes as old as my dad! almost :P) that he can still be very competitive and drive the car very well.

well DC had driven a car which can last a race without problems and can go fast! albers is driving a car which cant last 5 laps without blowing a engine and having problems (which shown nearly all season)he has had some really suprising weekends, but its hard for him to be consident because of the car he has to drive! put him in a ferrari, he can be as good as massa and kimi! if u put DC in a spyker, im sure he wont do anything special! its hard to prove when you are trying to keep a car which is hard to drive and has no speed! when the b-spec car comes out, im sure u will be suprised! in DTM he started with a old car, didnt show much special things, but when he suprisible got moved up to a newer car, he proved himself straight away winning most races and coming 2nd in the championship, he should of won it but had a very bad last race which lost him the championship! its totally different when your driving a fast car and a slow car!

Fernando for pole and the win. Hamilton's inexperience will show during the race. Hopefully the two Ferraris will CRASH N BURN!

Kimi for pole and win. Hopefully both McLarens CRASH N BURN! :evil: :evil: You should remember that here is many Ferrari fans so wrote with a little respect to other teams as well. Don't you forgot that.

Well, with today's Formula 1, the one that will be on pole will will the race...And Ferrari just seem very strong on Saturdays... (don't think that it is not strong here in Monaco because the situation was exactly the same in Spain 2 weeks ago, when McLaren topped the timesheets in Free Practices and Massa took the pole xD)

These videos made me join the forum... good marketing then! ;)

On the other topic, it's really a stretch to say Albers is better than DC... If Albers were so good he would have been snatched up by someone other than Spyker no?

Having said that, Senna Started with the Tolemans and Schumacher with the Jordan so you never know... let's see how quickly Albers moves on to a better team.

your a great member in our family BANANAGP :mrgreen:
I saw some comments by Ross Brawn and he doesn't think the longer wheelbase on the F2007 is going to be a problem.

Why thanks its great to be here... although my employer might have something else so say in this regard... :cheesy:

Apparently hamilton has won every race he participated in at Monaco!?

formula1.com wrote:Raikkonen, like his team mate Felipe Massa and McLaren’s world champion Fernando Alonso, is one of the men who could stand between Lewis Hamilton and his avowed intent to keep up his 100 percent record in the Principality by scoring his first Grand Prix win.


he was clearly a man among boys... let's see how he does it at the top level!

Let's pray for rain. I remember Brazil 2003. Jos (Verstappen) was way in front of Fisico when he went of. He could have won that race in a minardi. So I would like to see a spyker winning this year in monaco.
