Wow, with the Ferraris so far back, if we get rain tomorrow who knows who could win this thing. Webber has the advantage of being in front, but that Red Bull has proven to be a slightly unreliable car so far this year. Could this be Rosberg's day?...

Not so sure about Massa. He has looked off the pace all weekend. He'll make up places but not as much compared to Alonso and Hamilton. His drive to 3rd last week was one of the most undeserving podium place I've ever seen.

yeah Massa has been off the Alonso's pace from about 2-4 tenths. but friday practice are not something one should rely on completely.
A good start and changing tyres at the right time makes all the difference. See Glock last year.
Track position is everything and if u have track position and a good enough pace(not necessarily fastest) U can win.

Off-Topic: show
And well his third place was defined, not by his outright pace but by the ability to save tyres (both the car and him) and a good start.
Alonso should have got the third place in terms of pace but he had to wait for Kubica to pass in the pits because of the newer rule.

I am not moaning but driving fast is not the only aspect of getting good position, its actually looking after the car and the tyres as well.

FERRARI DOESN'T LOOK FOR EXCUSES:
Quote:
Domenicali: "It was arrogance to trust the weather forecast and think we could do it at once"
Alonso "I insisted with the team that we should wait, I take 70% of the blame. But for tomorrow I remain optimistic"
Massa: "Had I gone out 30 second earlier I would have done it. Who decided? It was a collective choice: but the car is good in any condition and I'm confident".
----------------------------------
Compare and contrast that with Lewis last week with a face like he'd been sucking lemons because of the team making him pit twice.

Totally agree with you! He was overtaken 4 or 5 times and he was well off the pace. His racecraft was also minimal and he was acting too soft once again. His old problem from 2007. I even had him as worst driver, because I´ve never seen a more undeserving podium than his one and I watch F1 for 16 years now... In fact I was quite angry at him and I would like to see a new driver at Ferrari in 2011 alongside Alonso.

Maybe Kubica?

I'm guessing tomorrow will be a total lottery. I agree that Hamilton & Alonso will probably advance rapidly (assuming it's dry at first), and that Massa will have more trouble getting through the cars ahead. He doesn't seem to be able to pass people like Hamilton & Alonso. The cars may be difficult to pass in, but Hamilton & Alonso seem to be able to do it more than most...Rubens might be someone to watch in the changing conditions...

If it rains, who knows what will happen, and it's a very open question whether the race will run the full distance, which throws another huge variable in. I'm sure it will be an entertaining event to watch!

I think tomorrow that Lotus or Virgin have a decent, and possibly their only chance this year, to score any points. If it will rain half way through like last year, it would be clever to put on the intermediates when necessary and not the full wets. As soon as the track hits the window for full wets, it quickly becomes too wet, and the race will either be neutralised by the safety car or red flagged.

Alonso should be the best bet overall, but lewis should do better in the rain. one thing i am sure of is if things dont go Lewis way in the first half, then like Massa they might be fighting for last few point positions. Massa lacks motivation and skill to overtake and make up position. Have just 1 or at the most 2 decent drives from back from him
