Barrichello can be the surprise if it rains on the race! I remember his first victory in Hockenheim in 2000 and also the GP of France in 1999 when he battles with Schumacher for the lead!

90% chance of rain in qualifying? We might get to see the first rain action soon

If it rains for the race, I expect 11 cars out at turn one, and the last 3 surviving cars to be on the podium.

And it can be anyone. The rain is going to equalize the machines, and only be about kajones!

That would be unbelievably cool is Rubens won another race before bowing out of F1.

If Australia is any predictor the winner will be the only driver that actually finishes, assuming it rains.

I'm hoping for rain but I don't know if it will be good or not to Kimi :cheezy:
Anyway I'm sure the race will be thrilling %Biggrin
Go straight to the finish line with ChequeredFlags!

I think Kimi is good in wet conditions, we saw him making good races in wet races, but without TC maybe things may be different.....
But yes, the race will be very nice to watch if it rains !yahoo:

If the race in Fuji is like the last year, there will be a good race this year without the TC.

Kimi hasn't said anything about no TC but then that's him, I think he should be good in the rain. Next time we get a wet race the brave racers will come though...who's brave and where will the next wet race be?
