What can the midfield teams do?
Is this the new teams chance for a point?
After a lot of stunning races in 2010, will Valencia bring a lot of excitement as well ?

Borelencia is back! :)

Who will take pole and the win? Pole: Vettel, Win: Hamilton
What can the midfield teams do? Not much. Maybe grab a point or two.
Is this the new teams chance for a point? No, pretty static race. The starting top 10 are usually the finishing top 10 with maybe one or two changes here.
After a lot of stunning races in 2010, will Valencia bring a lot of excitement as well ? No, it´s Borelencia! :)

Thank god there's football on, I doubt there'll be much to see here. It really is an appalling track, with overtaking impossible due to lack of run off and long braking zones, while crashes son't happen as there's run off on difficult corners and the surface is smoother than the cloth on a pool table. Its time this track was removed from the calendar, seriously.

Boring race.
Let's hope for rain or we will lose 1 and a half hr of life on that race.

I expect Ferrari to be stronger,mixing up with Redbull and Mclaren and there will be a fight for the win between 4 cars, Vettel,Webber,Alonso and Hamitlon.

Hope the 2010 GP will be better then 2008 and 2009,that was just horrific.

The track itself isn't that bad though. I don't know why, but F1 always seems to disappoint on those new tracks. There's mostly action in GP2 at Valencia anyway ...

Not to mention that its so dust offline. The 'straights' are just long curves and because of this, there is only one racing line. For example, the corner from the swing bridge to the end of the long 'straight' should be a passing place. It isn't because there is only one proper line through there. Apart from S3, the circuit sucks.

Don't forget Wimbledon.

Ferrari are bringing their new B Spec Car with new pull rear Suspension and new exhaust which diffuses the air around the rear tyres, causing more downforce.

I just hope we get to see different winning team... some one from Mercedes or Force India or Renault.

Force India won't win this season. And Mercedes and Renault will have to make big improvements. Podium places should be possible for both though. Especially Renault, they proved they can.

Ah well, maybe the race will be different than other years and it'll be a big crashfest. If that is how it will turn out, everything is possible.
