Lewis pace was good in the race, Mclaren were closer to Ferrari than I thought.
His qualifying lap was 0.038 slower than Massa and he was 2 laps heavier, I'm not sure if any of them made any mistake in their flying laps though but their pace in the race was encouraging.

mclaren looks strong again, but more than i expected, i know its just a test and don't show much of what is going to happen in the race, but it seems that mclaren are back on the track...
half a second faster, i think at least they improove a lot the car, because ferrari said that the f2008 is better on slower corners, but i still think mclaren will be more strong in monaco, as always! :)

And if Hamilton races in Monaco like last season, he has great chances of winning, if so it will be a fight with Kimi for sure. Wondering what Massa, Kubica and Alonso can do also !

as always in monaco, it's impotant to qualify well - front row as much as possible, and to have a great start of course. it useless to be on pole then lose a couple of places in the start of the race

Piquet pushes hard because Renault warned him.
