i'd say it would be an outside chance that McFerrari will win a GP

I think yeah, they will win a race or two, but it'll be difficult to win the Championship, maybe win a few races, build on that and challenge next year... Prob Kimi will grab the 1st win of the 4 drivers...

i voted for lewis :pray:


Yeah I'm getting pretty bored of Brawn to, thought F1 would be more exciting this year; last year it was a McLaren or a Ferrari win under normal circumstances, now it's a Brawn win or maybe a Red Bull Racing victory :zz:

I think both teams will win this year.

The Ferrari is now the 3rd best car on the grid and their best tracks are still going to come.

McLaren managed to win a race in 2004, when their car was more than c**p and Schumi was more than dominant, so I think Hamilton will win a race this year.
I have the feeling, that he will be very strong in Monaco, no good aerodynamics needed, but good traction and the McLaren has good traction - One of the best through the chicane at Barca.

I'm going with McLaren to win 1st, but not this weekend. If they still haven't won by Spa, Kimi will probably win :)

You can see that Ferrari are being very negative (esp. Räikkönen) although Massa has been quite positive, but McLaren have been very positive, saying that they will be competing for a race win

I think Ferrari has a better chance of winning a race, and I think that guy will be Kimi. He can get his head down and bring the results if he feels like it. It's Ferrari's job now to motivate him enough.

Yeah, I get confused with these teams. Now they aren't winning, every chance they get the seem to internally combust, like Hamilton crashing, he could have won. Kimi in Malaysia could have got more points, various strategies and decisions, such as lie-gate when they should have told the truth for the sake of a point. Neither of them really deserve a win, other teams do for all their efforts. Certainly not Kimi who seemed to cut the corner in Monaco

I think both of them will win the race this year. Especially Ferrari which have shown an improvement in the last 2 races, maybe they could win at Silverstone or Spa the tracks which Kimi & Ferrari has been very good in the last couple of years. But let's see...

Kimi won for McLaren in 2004, don't think any other driver could have. Lewis has an outside chance this year for a win because the car isn't terrible.

I said Kimi because of the later races like Spa. :pray:

@ Phil:

When did Kimi cut the chicane? any video or picture because I don't remember.
When did Dianca say that quote? :O
