Fonso is really feeling the heat now.

Good podium finish by Massa and late charge by Kimi. Kimi is still a no show and time is running out for him. The Massa - Ferrari team is slowly building up.

The midfield racing was also a treat to watch.

Over to France now.
Dippy,
If you realise, Lewis is absolutely like Computer programmed out of the Theory book!!! everything he does is what is ideal!! This is modern day training, that Mclaren have created, with 9 years of PROGRAMMING going into it!!
the rains and calamity situations will say the rest when the time comes, lets wait and watch. Remember Schumi has driven at times without brakes, flat tyre, suspension gone etc. etc. and won or gained 7 places and so on!! when the inadverdant/unplanned[situation not deliberated on] happens is when Lewis's human brain will have to take over.

Some whisky, soda, chicken fry, tyre dealer & zakko for company to watch the race. What else can one ask for? It was fun watching hamilton take everyone by storm. Though, I really do hope he does have some competition rather than having an easy go at winning the championship in his rookie year.

Did I hear something about Shumie being a sportsman or not being a sore loser?

Google /Wiki Jerez (I think) 1997 Schumacher and Villeneuve were very close on points on the last race. Schumie veered into Villeneuve as he was being passed. Villeneuve went on to win and scored four points to take the championship. There was clear evidence on veering to collide into jacques.V. Even FIA/Stewarts found shumie at fault and could not deny foul play.

After that there have been lots of unsportsmanlike incidents.. which I was not surprised to see. Sadly Statistically and technically he is the best driver to date.

BAck to topic I wish Hamilton all the best.. Cause HE has shown immense sportsmanship this season. I sure wish he continues on such a rampage to topple all of schumies records.

HAMI HAMI HAMI !!!!

I always felt Alonso to be a cribber(sorry Alonso fans) and now with Hamilton peaking in his rookie year itself is too close to comfort for Alonso and moreover its a British Team. I personally feel that Alonso is too self conceited, I was so desperate in the last season that Schumi beat him to dust and unfortunately though inspite of making Alonso jittery Schumi had badluck in the final stages but am happy that Lewis is making him work hard ....Wish Schumi could come back

Default Prediction: 2007 French GP

This week will be interesting. How Ferrari respond in light of the recent events remains to be seen. I would like to see some of that wounded Italian pride doing something constructive to get back on top.

For McLaren it should be business as usual. But, Magny-Cours is a little different from the last 2 North American races, so expect the others to close the gap. Also, this is Renault's home race. They always have a host of improvements for their car around this time. They will be gunning for row-3 honours come saturday.

My $$$ are on the usual suspects. but having said that, expect a few surprises as well.

Yea "MaserQ" even i think Renault will spring a surprise with currently the the two big wigs maclaren and ferrari teams having shared the honors and its like "four dogs playing a poker" ...i somehow feel hammy is gonna maintain his tempo with silverstone coming up next week...this will be a great race though with everyone vying for honors.

I would want Kimi to win it to hot up the championship, but I feel Alonso might win due to Mclaren being much faster. Hope it rains, so tha we get an exciting race to watch.

My bet is going to be on Alonso for this one. IMHO Hamilton's streak might just end, seven podium finishes and two chequerd flags for a rookie, lady luck might just run out this time and I do hope so, nothing as the race to the top hotting up in team mclaren itself.
Might end up as the senna v/s prost of this era and its in mclaren again
