An exciting phenomenon that! Who knew using a cyclotron to accelerate Massa and anti-Massas to near the speed of light before an almighty collision could result in such excitement. :eek: :D

Ron has arranged for the crane to be moved to the first corner...;)

I concur. Ferrari hasn't wow'd me yet. Expectations are high for them, because everyone has been predicting they're going to destroy McLaren.

The difference of the cars isnt major, it's just that Kimi will crush everyone in the long run :up:

Watching the car in practice, it just looks really awkward. Like they designed all those crazy aero bits first and then built a car around them.

Button Q2 and a points finish in the race.
Ferrari or a Mclaren starting at the back of the grid.
Red Bull and Williams stuggling to make Q3.

Hamilton handing Raikkonen his ass in the most stylish way possible. :lol: :D

In all honesty though, Alonso may cause an upset. Although I wouldn't consider it that but since everyone has written he and Renault off as useless.......

No surprise to some. Webber's been saying for ages they were quick. Race pace will be interesting though.

We should not be too harsh on Nelsinho but to look positive things. At least he beat Davidson. The biggest upset so far was Renault, who did not make any progress with Fernando and Nelsinho, quite the opposite in fact. I was looking forward to see how Fisi passes Piquet in the race, but it seems that he does not have to.

Let´s wait till the race before throwing renault to the trash. Anyway, i wasnt expecting to see piquet that far away. He was doing a decent job during the winter.

I am really looking to see if BMW is were it seems to be. I am a big fan of them.

The biggest surprise is Ferrari choosing that white and blue colour scheme and BMW that red for qualifying :D


Quite a few surprises all around up to now. Lets hope for more tomorrow.

So if Fisichella can't get his car into Q2 because his car is crap he is underperforming ... but in the case of Webber, Coulthard, Barrichello, Button, Trulli and Glock is their car ...

Ah so, The Team Mate is 2 seconds behind. That really tells us everything we need to know. If Team Mate is 2 secs down, then only possible explanation for that is: you are doing extremely wonderful job. There cant be a thing like a real slow, underperforming team mate, right? No, if there is a Team Mate, then he surely reflects the true speed of the car and anything faster than Team Mate does is, brilliant work, no matter the team, driver, nothing, just compare to Team Mate and the truth is there. :up:

So you are saying that Alonso should be on pole or something like that?

you're being delusional ...

The Renault has a lot of problems with getting the tyres to work on quali.

Well rather Alonso worshipers :down: :down: because Alonso didnt move the team 0.6 sec forward like he was supposed to. And I cant stop laughing at the spanispress quotes, where they claimed this new Renault is a huge improvement and with Alonso on top of it they can fight for win.

Pipe dreaming. Alonso can dream equalling the records Kovalainen set last year.

Upset? Kimi defeating Hamster from back grid position would be a good show, BMW - a quality markee -winning the race with one of those two square heads would be another one...

Vettel will podium. Kubica will lead for a bit out of sync, then chuck it. Massa for #2. Hamilton from pole to podium.

Kimi will claw back for 5th. 4th.....I can't see that far into the future, I didn't eat enough spice melange from the planet Dune to pull it off.

....you see how absurd this crap is right? For all we know Bourdais will win. I distinctly recall when Bread Man won Monaco.;)
