Monaco is probably the hardest track to overtake in...San Marino being the second.
Race Predictions are parctically impossible, because of the different winners in the last 4 yrs.
Well here's wht I think maybe the result
1.Schumi
2.Button
3.KR
I know im being too bold by not choosing either of the 2 Renaults...they may sneak ahead only due to their TC's...

The slow running will influence the outcome of qualifying and the race. No predection can be done based on the car's pace in Monaco....Mere strategy and luck will decide......

There's no way Schumacher's gonna win this one. No hard feelings for Ferrari fans, but Ferrari would find it difficult here with their setup. Also, Alonso has a very slim chance of winning this one since he isn't a very good qualifier and it'll be the pole position that'll count. Unless of course he manages a stunner. If it's Renault, it'll be Fisichella.
Kimi and Jenson have a good chance, particularly with their qualifying pace. Even Webber has a very good chance if his car supports him.

making a prediction for monaco is going to be the the toughest as compared to any other track..
qualifying is going to be chaos !

22 drivers on track at the same time..
all i can predict are some major suprises !

IMHO, the top 3 in qualifying will be the top 3 on the podium

There were about 4 or 5 crashes in practice itself and the session was red flagged for a few times. I'd be happy to see atleast 15 drivers making it to the chequred flag.

I hope qualifying would be far better than race as the top 10 would be trying to set quick lap times in session 3 as opposed to the cruising they do before.

Once u get past the first few laps and get settled into a position it should be easy. But u if have some pressure from the back, then a slight mistake and ur into the wall.

And because of the blind corners, just in case an accident takes place, the other cars might run into it or cause a traffic block. There is no run-off area at all...

Montoya is too hot headed to actually lead the race all the way from pole to the chequered flag. he would either spin it or crash it or ram into schmuck in the tunnel lol

Looks like Ferrari have got their machine to work well with the tyres. Schumacher was 2nd fastest in todays practice and Massa was 6th.

Renault still ahead with 1st and 3rd in practice..Can't wait for qualifying which is in about 45mins..

Alright...an awesome qualifying session. Sad to see Massa out on his first lap itself, well he'll be starting way back at the end of the grid. And boy wasn't it close for all of the drivers, biggest surprise that Button didn't make it into the final session.

MS setting the fastest lap..amazing. Just can't wait to hear what Ferrari/MS haters have to say about him parking his car at the very end..but as long as he's on pole

Fonsi is second...everything should be decided according to how they get off the line and hold it into the first corner. Only strategy can help anyone from gaining or holding a position.

BTW, Massa could be starting on a full tank of fuel, and maybe with a new engine as well...and could run upto lap 56 on a single stop strategy. Should be intresting cuz there is absolutely no other way he can make it into the top 10.
