Yeah, I suppose. But then Massa said he made a couple mistakes on his lap. And of course, Raikkonen aborted a lap where he was up by 0.3 or so. And I had thought there had been a race or two this season where Raikkonen had taken more than a single lap extra than Massa, although that's probably just my failing memory acting up again. Yeah you're probably right - it probably IS only one lap difference, although I'm not quite as confident about it as you are.;)


We will see tonight, but yes i am pretty confident that there is 1 lap difference but that Kimi may have stretched it to 2 laps given the aborted run. Either way, with Kimi's consistency and a clean getaway from P1, He will have a healthy margin to Massa come time for the stops.

Hamiton just said on ITV that his friend had told him legends are made of drivers who race from the back to win.
Lets hope a legend is born today...

Not really... I'm just viewing an interview with Keke Rosberg which is being broadcasted live from Magny Cours @ BMW motor home. It's not raining.

Kova :down: :down: :down: He might as well have a number two now. Completely clueless :mad:


Might want to think your comments again - Alonso was indeed very light and Kovy heaviest in top 10 - I don't understand why qualifying on fumes is such a great achievement :confused:

Considering HK's fuel load (heaviest of the top 10), his lap was very impressive and made it possible to climb from spot 10 to 4. Very well done. :up:

Definitely, the legend was born, but I'm not sure you meant this kind of legend ;)
