Default Wish Kimi get's it right this time

I would not want to predict the race winners, but I'm guessing that Alonso will take pole tomorrow, then Schumi and then Massa...
One of the three will be winners ofcourse...
Wish Kimi shows his skills like he did last time...

From an ubbiassed view towards Ferrari, I think it will be Renault 1 2, cause they are strong here. Ferrari winning in 2 German circuits doesnt mean they are back. I think its time for Kimi 2 also perform, so Mclaren will will be under mighty pressure to perform here.So my guess:
1. Alonso
2. Kimi
3. Fisichella

Well after the free practice, Ferrari don't really seem to be very comepetitive here. most proabably alonso or kimi will take the pole position. I have a feeling that Alonso here would push really hard and try to win the race, rather than just settle for points like his previous 2 races. Since this is his hometown he would rather take risks and win the race than settle for any of the other places. Two ferrari's making it to the podium here seems unlikely. Since Honda and Merc are looking very competitive now. Actually, more than the result of the race, I'm more excited on what kind of new drama Button will face this time !!!

Renault and Mclaren test regularly at catalunya. They obviously would have far more data than ferrari who prefer to test at fiorano/mugello. Renault and Mclaren will find setting up their cars really easy, while ferrari will have to rely on last years data.

I would say Kimi, Alonso, Schumi if the bridgestones play spoilsport.
However, if the bridgestones work perfectly throughout the race distance and ferrari manage to setup the car well, then Schumi will definately fight for 1st.

Ferrari seem very fast at the circuit.atleast the practice times suggest that.also the renault looks strong.It looks like to be the 3rd close fight of the season.

Ms should win it and FA should put his renault in the wall so that he can be close to his fans .

Schumacher's Ferrari was the fastest car on track setting a top speed on 311.6kmph followed by Felipe Massa with 307.5kmph.

Surprise, Alonso only managed 17th fastest with 299.9kmph

Looks like the Ferrari are quick!!

What only 300 kmph for alonso on that 1 Km long straight.you must atleast be able to do 307-308 kmph on that straight with the right downforce for this circuit.

Looks like they are running huge downforce or they have limited the engine for its second race.

Or maybe its just a faster Ferrari
Alonso would be the one person pushing to the max and trying to win. Guess he won't be nursing his car being his hometown.

Defection of McLaren's chief aerodynamicist to Ferrari must have hurt a lot...besides McLaren have lost two more aerodynamicists to RED BULL RACING Team.

It would be hard to see McLaren get out of these blows quickly, and though I do not like Ferrari at all, I ain't betting against them now.

Reanult will rock as usual (probably), but hope McLaren can pull up their socks.

MS goes fastest in third practice with a time of 1.15.658 just kissing the renault of Fisichella who set a time of 1.15.707 for second spot.

FA was 8th with time of 1.16.595 and Massa was 7th with time of 1.16.410.
Kimi went 10th fastest with time of 1.16.705
