Hand on your heart, aren't you at least a little afraid of a collision in the start? Webber will not give up his position just like that.


Of course I am yeah, but I think Webber will defend going into La Source and he'll get the switchback up to Les Combes. Don't forget though that Kubica has very high straight line speed. I think we'll see a start crash tomorrow, hopefully it rains!


Sorry Phil, I couldn't quite follow your way of thinking :blush:

Switchback?

Webber will take a defensive line, so compromising his exit. Hamilton will take a wide line so he gets a better exit. Simple :O

Alonso was running a wet set-up, so he has taken a big gamble for tomorrow.

Good for Massa though but wouldn't exactly want to be in Alonso's pants after this quali when meeting the Italian and Spanish press :p

Sorry :blush:

Olav says there's no such thing anymore as a wet setup, being different than a dry setup as the downforce-levels on the cars are very high anyway

Actually I'm not so sure about Alonso's set-up, I'll look into it.

Poor qualifying for Massa, he all over the place. Ferrari are 6th and 10th so thats not great for them. Red Bull are 1st and 4th which is okay, but Hamilton (2nd) and Button (5th) will have very fast straight line speed to challenge Webber & Vettel into Les Combes, plus Vettel has made a hash of starts recently. Kubica also is quick in a straight line. Petrov has work to do from 24th and there are also new teams in the mix with Kovalainen and Glock 14th and 15th. The Mercedes will also be looking to make their way through the field as Schumacher is 21st and Rosberg 16th so hopefully we'll get a Schumi comeback. The Saubers are near the back and crash-prone so who knows what will happen there. We have a superb grid, just what we wanted and the chance of rain tomorrow. I can't wait to see 24 heavy-fuelled cars approaching Eau Rouge on Lap 1. I just hope we have a standing start :)

Kubica says because of a problem with the car he couldn't get a second lap in Q3

Joost, I have been wondering all along who is Olav?

It's great to hear what commentators from different countries say :shhh:

I'd like to see Webber's pole lap just to see what S2 was like. It was about 0.7s faster than any non-RB car could achieve

IMO, Olav Mol is the best commentator in the world, he's from Holland and has been commentating F1 since 1991, he's knows every one in the paddock and knows nearly everthing about an F1 car :)
