Talking Prediction: Japanese GP 2007

Guys, with less than 17 hours to go for the Friday practice, and we hearing about the track conditions by the teams, what are your predictions for this race?

I am expecting some of Japanese teams to earn some championship points, not on the podium though.

Please pour in your predictions, and the person with the correct one, well, GETS TO PREDICT THE OUTCOME OF THE NEXT GP AS WELL

Going by autosport.com - F1 News: Massa ready to play supporting role, if pole positions are same as that at Spa, then Kimi will fly through. Alonso will take LH out of the track this time for sure, and then Massa will brake hard if Alonso closes in to finish FA. Similarly for any other that tries to make a pass at him in order to reach KR.

The bone of contention is Fuji has taken spot of Suzuka, so benchmark for Fuji is one of the most loved circuit.
Somehow I am getting a feeling that this might be one of the better circuits on the calendar.
The Macca had the advantage at MONZA, CANADA and to a certain extent USA because the cars had to ride the kerbs, and McLaren does that well. From the images and videos which I have been able access of the FUJI speedway, there just might be an alternative line for cars if they dont wish to hit the kerbs but it will be slightly slower. How much of this deficit can Ferrari claw back on the long strait is to be seen, and form what I observe, its clear that the places where the car can really cream the track resemble the sweeping corners of tracks like Turkey, SPA and France.
Adrian Sutil was last driver to take this circuit in racing conditions, and he has mentioned that kerbs are smoother as compared to Monza , and actual conditions can vary ( read may be flattened).
This is bound to be a cracker.

Post Practice One - first blood to Ferrari in Japan

The Official Formula 1 Website

Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa set the fastest practice times as teams and drivers began the process of acclimatising themselves to Fuji International Speedway on Friday morning.

All I can say is that the matters are getting quite exciting.

autosport.com - F1 News: Hamilton out to stop Alonso's charge Hamilton said he is looking forward to respond to teammate Fernando Alonso's recent resurgence of form at Fuji this weekend, after getting to the bottom of where he has lost out to the Spaniard in recent races. According to him, his advantage was lost due to his different set-up.

As far as today's times are concerned, I am betting on same starting positions at the Spa.

The reds are super quick. But if Massa cannot hold back the McLarens it would be game over for Kimi. And I very much doubt if he can.
