What do you guys think about the incident involving Heidfeld and Coulthard in Q1. I think it was pretty unfair on Heidfeld's part to ruin Coulthard's hot lap since he was comfortably in the top 15 already.

And Hamilton seems to be a full three tenths faster than the rest of the pack. Is it pure speed, or less fuel? Only time will tell.

Everytime i chk the qualifying timings our boys (Team Force India) are at the bottom without fail
i just hope they catch a few points before the season ends.
Otherwise it wouldn`t be any different than what Jordan used to be... racing every weekend but never wining.

Talking

Why do I get feeling that tomorrow's start is going to raise another storm in F1??
Hope Kimi jumps LH at the start and LH gets another rush of blood :-)
On a serious note,Massa's race depends on the start that Kimi gets.Something on the line of what Massa did in Interlagos last year.

After Heidfeld gets a 3 spot penalty for the incident with Coulthard, and Webber's 10 place penalty for his engine change, the revised starting order is:

1 Lewis Hamilton, McLaren
2 Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari
3 Felipe Massa, Ferrari
4 Fernando Alonso, Renault
5 Heikki Kovalainen, McLaren
6 Sebastian Vettel, Toro Rosso
7 Jarno Trulli, Toyota
8 Sebastien Bourdais, Toro Rosso
9 Nick Heidfeld, BMW Sauber
10 Nelson Piquet, Renault
11 Robert Kubica, BMW Sauber
12 Timo Glock, Toyota
13 Rubens Barrichello, Honda
14 Nico Rosberg, Williams
15 David Coulthard, Red Bull
16 Mark Webber, Red Bull
17 Kazuki Nakajima, Williams
18 Jenson Button, Honda
19 Adrian Sutil, Force India
20 Giancarlo Fisichella, Force India

Hmm, it's gonna be interesting.

If LH wins tom and Massa fails to make the podium, the championship is over.

And if LH fails to score and Massa wins, he'l lead the championship by 5 points.

Both drivers have to be careful tom.

My predictions:
IMO China has been a stronghold for Ferrari since 4 years. I feel Mclaren will score their first win in China as the track conditions (Cool weather and hard tyres) and Hamiltons pole favour them.

Kimi seems to quicker than Massa lately. If thats the case than towards the end of the race Kimi might be moved aside to move Massa up the chart.

1. Hamilton
2. Massa
3. Heikki
4. Kimi
5. Alonso

What about our good old (or rather young) Kubica. I know he qualified 11th, but that doesn't mean he still cannot win the race and the championship.

I always tend to support him, sometimes even more than Hamilton since he's such a great driver and a nice person as well.

Go Polska!!

BTW, don't forget the comment you made about Glock and his wish to put Hamilton in the wall. Remember, what happened after that?
I dont like Alonso. And about the Glock, if he has what Lewis has too many he will settle it someday.

I dont remember which class it was, 125s or 250s. But the champion (2 or 3 yrs back) didnt even win a single race. He never scored anything higher than 2nd place but he was on podium in all the races.

Not all commentators are part or were a part of the team. Example Harsha Bogle, he never played cricket. So we need not sit/drive an F1 car to say something about F1.

Come to think of it. Hamilton is leading the championship with 84points from 16 races. Thats only an average of 5.25 points per race. If someone was to come 3rd in all the races, he would have still ended up with 96 points!!!

This is why guys like Kubica are able to close in on the leaders even though they might have won only a single race.

PS : In 2004 Schumacher scored 148 points from 18 races at an average of 8.22 points per race.
