Judging from the form McLaren is showing, it'll be difficult to bet against them occupying atleast the top of the 3 podiums.

I prefer not to! But now that I think of it, I think that race was McLaren putting on their compassionate hat to let others win once a while

Spa reminds me that October's fast approaching, & so too is the end of the 2007 season... Beyond that, it's months of mind numbing F1-less emptiness :( Of course I'm rooting for a Ferrari 1-2 ! And until it's a mathematical impossibility, there's still hope for the Tifosi

I'm also curious, with the possibility of a desi team next year, will the support for Ferrari & McLaren here in India shift ?

Trukey was slightly misleading in that, the gearbox which McLaren introduced at Hungary was not used in that race.
Though it will make a difference at Spa, the inherent long wheel base of the red cars will be at an advantage over the long sweeping corners. The only place where I see the McLaren being strong would be the bus stop chicane because thats the only place where the car needs to be roughed over the kerbs.

spa is always interesting..
its always raining and that stirs the pot quite a bit
to be quick at spa.. a car can have no weaknesses
so the top teams tend to go well

the rain aside..
the mclarens have no real weaknesses, the ferraris do ( monza)
so i'm expecting them to have a slight advantage
though it will be a smaller gap compared to monza

should make for an awesome race

Today's verdict won't do any good to team McLaren's morale. Ferrari will be really happy. But, as far as the driver's are concerned, I still think Alonso and Hamilton will pull it off.
I'll be cheerig for them harder than ever before. Go McLaren!!!

The FIA has passed the verdict. Old Story. Look at what that has done to the rest of the season...Ferrari have effectively won the constructors championship and either one of the Mclaren drivers will be crowned champion. So much for last gasp, tight finish season!!

Well I guess Alonso-Hamilton is still on. There is racing to be had, still...and this is Spa Francorchamps for Gods sake...cheer up MaserQ!

After yesterdays verdict, I do hope that Mclaren wrap up another 1 - 2. Will be a fitting reply to where championships must be won.

I am going to cheer harder for McLarens.
Hope they'll put in more efforts and send every other team to eat dust. Poor fellows! Somebody from Ferrari sold their secret papers to one of Mclaren's staff and only Mclaren gets punished. They'll come with all power and make the horses out of others to limp a lot.

I pray for a repeatation of Monza 07! With somebody else on the 3rd place of course!
Once that happens, me and many others will be
