Shcumi drove a very good race indeed and sure he deserved to on top of the podium. the one thing that makes me wonder is how the race would have turned out if kimi had stayed. I'd say
1. Schumi
2. kimi
3. alonso,
since kimi sure would have overtaken fonsi in his "slow laps".

listening to this crap cant renault cram in hekki for the remainder of races to give alonso a taste of his medicine? i mean even he is a stormer.

that was outrightly pathetic. i mean even ferrari used to do it but then rubino wud slow down the whole field himself & not run down the stretch rubbing shoulders with schumi. everybody tries to take advantage of situations but how u do it what counts.

Yes, but to be honest, Schumi was never very close to overtaking fisi, i guess, he wasnt pushing the car to the limit, but was waiting for the opportune moment. i think he was sure that overtaking alonso would take place sooner than later.

Nonetheless, had the roles been reversed, there would have been a huge outcry over the negative tactics.....

As usual, put my money on Michael all the way..and also on Ferrari.

And rain is like a bit of bad news for Bridgestone runners this year, so would like to watch a clean dry race, but this time Flavio really getting the helemt blow on his face

And now, officially Fonsi blames Renault on Spanish radio
http://www.itv-f1.com/News_Article.aspx?PO_ID=37585

Like someone said, would love to see what he does next year when McLaren get even more plagued with problems.

Friday practice 2 timings.Track was declared wet for the session.

Top ten positions
Fisi 134.337
Massa +.071
Schumi +.228
Alonso +.526
Davidson +.569
Vettel +.575
Button +.665
Rosa +.727
Trulli +1.006
Kimi +1.030

I was watching the live timings, i could see that track was getting drier progressively and lap times were tumbling towards the end...

I think it is Schumi for now. It's his last chance to do it.
Alonso can do it next year and so can Kimi. So, Schumacher will try his best to make it to the Highest Podium this time.

And according to a wise guy named Flavio, it's already confirmed that it's Schumacher!!!!

The low downforce Suzuka track typically has favored Ferrari.

Michael has just destroyed the time sheets in Saturday practice.just finished watching live timing and he was a unbelievable 1.2 secs faster than anyone else and more importantly 1.9 secs faster than Cry Baby ("i:e fonso).

just wondering whether Renault are sandbagging, but it doesn't look so since even Mclaren were far off the pace.Even The Toyota was flying today looks like brigestone had got the upper hand.Massa didn't fare much better because he was caught in traffic on his last flyer.

Excellent performance from Ferrari P1 and P2.looks like Massa is running a little lighter than Michael,nevertheless and excellent lap from him.

and the ferrari tactic is going to infuriate Fonso further still and we can expect further comments from him.I dont think ferrari needed to do that but they may be trying to affect Fonso physiologically.

looking forward for the race tomorrow.

With his brother behind and team mate ahead, Michael has it all set. I just hope Ferrari do not goof up on any front as they have in some races this year.

Evidently the tyre advantage has switched within a week. Will be a race to die for.

A Comment from www.itv-f1.com

Quote:
The German was simply in a class of his own, outpacing Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa by 0.9s and title rival Fernando Alonso by more than 1.3s.

His lap time of 1m28.954s is, by our reckoning, the fastest ever recorded at Suzuka and sent shivers down the spine of Alonso and Co. at Renault.

Now the old master has joined the battle of his student.

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/54988

if according to him Massa is a little,a very little kid then his darling Fonso must be a 2 year old baby.

This duo are making too making accusations are making me mad now.
