Ferrari & McLaren looking good in free practice.

Honda might spring a surprise as Ross brown is with them.

Correction there. Fisi finished 9th.
@Sukiwa. I feel Williams, Toyota or Red Bull might spring a suprise. Cant see Honda doing that.

Hang in there Nitrous. He might be running a low fuel load.

Let's wait till Qualifying to see how things truly shake out.

Kimi wasn't happy with the setup during 2nd practice. Ferrari had done a good job during 1st practice. I'm sure the Ferrari engineers are hard at work figuring out a race setup which we will see in a few hours during 3rd practice.

I think Kimi has a pretty good chance of nailing this one. The Ferraris have always been pretty strong in the first half of the season when the other teams are a bit unprepared (or underpowered?).

So my prediction is:
1. Kimster
2. Massa
3. Hamilton

I'm expecting a really strong performance from Rosberg (Williams) this season. I think he may even do better than the BMWs, if the car stays reliable.

Force India are definitely doing better than Super Aguri (which is their only goal this season) because they have more money than Super Aguri and they did not skip winter testing as well. They might do better than Toro Rosso in a few races, but then you never know what Fisichella is capable of.

Somehow I also get the feeling that Timo Glock in the Toyota is going to outshine his teammate (Trulli), but it still remains to be seen if they'll do better than Honda (which they did last season).

Regarding Alonso and Renault, honestly I'm clueless right now. I know Alonso is a very capable driver with an impeccable track record, but then he joined Renault really late last year and Renault hasn't been the same as before in the last season.
Nevertheless, the biggest attraction should still be Alonso and Hamilton fighting it out in separate teams this season.

Disappointment!! Kimi not making the cut. And why didnt Massa come out for another run? What was Ferrari thinking?
Feel sad for Kubica, I think it would have better to see him on pole rather than ...
Kimi starting from 16th, hope to see some fireworks. I dont think it would be difficult to come ahead as there will be many drivers slipping and sliding. No drivers' aid!!
