I'm on the fence about how Lewis should drive this race.

I think Heiki should have light fuel and slice and dice with the Ferraris. Lewis should lay back on the third grid. When everything settles down, just get into a pace, and stay within the championship win.

I don't trust team tactics.

However, I do want to see BMF (hami) bring the fight straight to Ferrari.

This is going to be a LONG week.

That's pretty funny, both of ya

I think Nola's second one applies to HK towards the beginning of 08 as well... was it Australia or maybe Malaysia?

If he does that Alonso will qualify next to him and take out in the 1st turn.

Do you honestly think that he can do something like that without picking up a very stiff penalty such as getting himself excluded from next years championship or from driving for a few races?

Hamilton,s main threat this weekend will be himself, and the fact that he has managed to make more enemies on the grid during 2 seasons than some other drivers during their entire career.

IMO both title contenders dont deserve it.

I predict that Hamilton will easily take the drivers championship. & if the ferrari's stay on the circuit, they ought to take the constructors championship.

a car that confirms all your prejudices
I did like Massa's comments in the press conference.

"I've always had my family together in my career, although in go-karts it was a little more difficult because we didn't have much money to go to the races.

"But they were always close even then as I talked to them on the phone every day.

"Family are important because when you are happy in your private life, you want them with you because that makes your professional life even better.

"So when you get inside the car some of the problems are taken away."

Massa then joked: "But it's a good job I don't always take my mum's advice, otherwise I would drive very slowly."
No, Felipe. Listen to your mum. Please.

See Garage
Let's watch the language. It's enough already that this forum is so polarized with Ferrari haters and McLaren haters. Can't you peeps just enjoy the racing without all the hating?

Come to think of it they're probably going easy on that race-old engine.

I definitely think a lot of that will change. You got Mark Webber way up there on the time sheets, I'd put the McLarens very close to the ferraris with alonso being the spoiler come tomorrow.

I have been following the practice times throughout the year, and in most cases the practice times didn't seem to correlate with what happened to qualifying and the race. Usually when they are running slow many times it means that they are tuning the car with high fuel loads and also hiding their true potential from their immediate rivals.
