1) Who will take pole and who will win the race? I think vettel will get pole and haimlton will win the race. I know red bull will be strong sector 2 but McLaren still like fast flowing corners.
2) Which driver will lead the WDC after Spa ? Hamilton
3) Any further problems for Mclaren? NO
4) Will Mercedes do anything good? no it will be a poor weekend for them
5) Will Yamamoto outrun his teammate in Spa ? If chandhok retires

The first 3 drivers on the all time winning list are the best of all time in my oppinion, in no particular order.
Ferrari leading the teams list by a countrymile, 16 wins...

My prediction for qualifying will be: Senna on pole, Clark in second, Hamilton third, Alonso fourth, Schumacher fifth. Vettel breaking his neck in a qualifying accident and missing the rest of the season.

The race: winner: Jim Clark-Lotus, second Schumacher-Benetton, third Alonso-Renault, Hamilton, Senna and Mansell to retire. Alesi will score a couple of points in 4th and Button and Häkkinen will round up the points scoring positions.

I really fancy Ferrari for this one, they seem to like fast corners and have more engine power than Red Bull. McLaren don't have enough downforce to be the fastest here, their engine will mask some of its deficiences but not enough to be fastest here.

I dunno, I think Red Bull will be supreme through S2 - especially Pouhon - but I think it'll be closer than many predict. Any rain and it brings JB back into it.

I remember getting to Silverstone and thinking red bull will be so much faster here than McLaren because of the fast corners but Hamilton was only about 3-4 tenths a lap slower. Might be closer then people think

McLaren are only bad on slow, bumpy circuits (Monaco, Hungary & I reckon Interlagos as well). But on fast circuits, the RBs have shown amazing quali pace but the McLarens (Hamilton) has been close in the race (Spain, Istanbul, Silverstone)

it's nice to hear that, giving some confidence (if not consolation) and faith to the mclaren team. but as far as i know, when your car is strong at barcelona then your car is strong on almost all circuits. :( ..... we saw how rbr did there, that's the bad news.

+ the fact that Ferrari will bring a new rear end to Spa

1) Who will take pole and who will win the race? - Vettel for pole, Hamilton wins the race...
2) Which driver will lead the WDC after Spa ? Mark "Webo" Webber
3) Any further problems for Mclaren? Nah, hope not...
4) Will Mercedes do anything good? Nah. Don't think so.
5) Will Yamamoto outrun his teammate in Spa ? What? Are you kidding me? NO WAY! He shouldn't even be in Formula 1.

Thats not possible though, for Hamilton to win the race without retaking the points lead.
