The interviews are comming thick and fast and so are Uncle Rons problems.there appears to be an unpleasant atmosphere in the Mclaren camp and a civil war is the next likely scenario.Alonso is not happy(or comfortable) with the team and is talking of favoritism and Hamma is taking none of this.Alonso has to win Indy or at least beat Hamma if the rattle is going to slow down.Will be a brilliant race to watch.

Ideally Indy suits the Ferrari's,and whatever they said Canada is not favorable to the Ferrari car.Also Ferrari seem to struggle on soft-super soft tyres compared to Mclaren and with INDY getting medium-medium hard tyres like spain we can see better performance from Ferrari.will have to wait at least till first practice to get the true picture.

My prediction for the race is as follows :-

1) Massa
2) Hamilton
3) Kimi

Alonso generally does not do well at this circuit.
Lets see how it unfolds this time around.

Cheers!

1. Kimi
2. Alonso
3. Massa

Come on guys.... Lewis' luck has to run out at some time!! He's been the luckiest chap on the grid for the first 6 races!! Nothing's gone against him in terms of accidents/car failure/safety car periods....

Luck ? seriously ?
So lewis kept away from all trouble, managed his car and his engine well so as not to damage it. Any drove flawlessly to score podium is what you call luck ?

So tell me now, Ferrari didn't had any engine failure for 2 and half years, now would you call "that" luck ? Cause I surely won't.

Why doesn't anyone post the timings?!
Its better to post race timings and if possible a pic of the circuit along with your prediction when opening the next GP Prediction thread. It'll be much better to add past winners and fastest laps.

any driver in a formula 1 car will always have an element of luck with him. It was Lewis' luck that the McLaren chose to pit him a lap earlier than Alonso in the Canadian Grand Prix. And a driver can manage his engine very well and drive a flawless race, but if some other idiot does something stupid like rear ending him/smacking him the side (I remember Sato doin that during his BAR days), its his bad luck. Even Alonso did something stupid during his early days. He braked too early when Coulthard was chasing him down in his McLaren days and Coulthard had to go off the track to avoid rearending Alsonso, and this put an end to his race.

Make no mistake... I am a great fan of Lewis, absolutely love his style, the way he races and the way he absorbs the pressure. But I just stated that the 'luck' (whether good or bad) might change during this race. Plus, even though I am a Ferrari fan, I would love to see Lewis on the podium. I was just making my prediction. And I guess the prediction would state what I think would be the conclusion, and not what I want the conclusion to be

I was quite surprised when Alonso started ranted after the Canadian GP. Certainly didnt expect this from a double world champion.
Even Jacques Villenevue had a go at Lewis Hamilton, saying that he was too aggressive. One could expect this from Jacques, who IMO, was always a bit of a whiner. I don't know how he became the world champion once. But Alonso.... seriously.... grow up dude!

Here goes my prediction-
1) Fernando
2) Lewis
3) Massa
I think Fernando is going to bounce back at Indy and Lewis as usual will be damn good here too.
