In Japan too they don't do the TV direction ( they show Sato or the crowd or Anthony Hamilton or the marshall with Senna Helmet lol ). Lol the highlights of qualify was Alonso smiling, then crying, then .... ^^
Honestly I would like to see Webber win, he did a very good job on qualify and he was good here in 06.

Normally French TV (TF1 isn't it?) offers decent coverage. But yeah, it was awful. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

Okay so that's why they show a lot Alonso, the TF1 commentators talked a lot about Fernando and his chances he lost after crashing into the barriers, especially when Massa made good times

Yeah, me too. Kubica needs a win to reaffirm his status as a top driver, and Hamilton needs a win to get him back in the championship hunt. However, I'd say barring any reliability issues, Webber and Red Bull could really romp away with this one, although I'm not sure how that car is doing on long runs. Kubica was putting in consistent laps during all of quali, whereas Webber just came in at the last gasp and took pole. All will be told tomorrow! :)

I'd like to see Kubica or Webber win. Kubica has driven flawlessly so far and I'd be really happy to see him win.

I got a feeling ... that today's gonna be a good day ... that today's gonna be a good good day in monte carlo .... ooooh ooooh :p

Kubica is very fast in Monaco. As is Webber. It's hard to predict who's gonna win because even when you have the facilities to do it, you still need to do it. That's why I think Webber will win. I would go crazy if Kubica wins tho.. Red Bull's aren't that reliable.

Supercup on Eurosport now.. Weather looks decent. I think that if it rains today, it'll be late in the afternoon.

I would like to Kubica to win, somehow his murdering pace lap after lap convinced me more than Webber. On thursday btw Webber had brake disc broken , same as Vettel in Spain. So its not so certain their failure was a one off.

Kubica has set his car up for race trim rather than qualifying, so he's in a VERY good shape :D

Cameraman missed a crash in the WSbR race, so they used a security camera instead

I hope you're right. He deserves much more than his car allows him to achieve.

Kubica said himself that he was astonished by his qualifying pace as they raised something on the car which means that it won't drag as much on heavy fuel.

As for the fuel loads, maybe a few guys might forget just how much fuel they have to lug around and we might have some early crashes?

Both Hamilton and Vettel seem to be on the edge all weekend and I can't believe that Massa hasn't crashed yet
