There goes those Mercedes Engines back to the top with Mclaren Mercedes taking top spot at the hands of Lewis Hamilton.
Sutil Almost did take pole again but had to settle for 2nd.
Kimi & hekki thereafter.

I am sure Sutil would had been on Pole if he hadnt made that mistake in sector 1 on the final attempt, nevertheless P2 is not bad either for FI, this also proves that there SPA victory was not a fluke, some serious work and upgrades have got the FIs up. P2 and P7 is huge.
FI is rocking.

Wow,

Its just great to find Sutil on P2, anyways KERS will sure help catapult him to P1 on the podium if he keeps his nerves

I am now loving F1, and its only because of Force India cars.

Wow... Force India is really rocking. With the kind of progress this team has made this year, Max Mosely's stand on cost cutting seems vindicated. If FI, with their measly budget can pull this off then maybe there is some sense in the budget cap.

Force India cars dont have KERS.
I believe Kimi and maybe Heiki too might overtake him by the second corner purely due to their KERS system.

Great acheivement by Force India. Its special to see the tri-color car starting from the front row. Mallya's dream is getting real, I hope atleast now the Indian govt. starts looking at this sport seriously!

In tomorrow's race, I feel the BrawnGP cars are going to give us the surprise. They are considerably heavy and Button did show the speed of the Brawn cars in Q2!

During the start, the FI car is starting from the dirty side of the track whereas Kimi is starting from the racing line with KERS. If there is a clean start we can see Kimi getting a pass over the FI car and Heikki might get a good chance too by 1st corner! The Ferrari has shown very good race pace and is slightly heavy by a lap than Hamilton & Addy! Should be an interesting race

I am predicting a BrawnGP car win for tomorrow!

This race is going to be a battle of the strategies. The top 3 are much lighter compared to the rest, which clearly indicates the different strategies at work here. Lewis, Sutil and probably Kimi are one 2-stop strategies while the rest are on 1-stoppers. Brawns will have to get ahead of Heikki before they can think of winning this.
Sutil can afford to lose a place to Kimi but not Heikki. If Heikki gets ahead of Sutil at the start, his race is gone.

My bets for tomorrow:
Kimi
Lewis
Rubens

I dont think they can deploy Kers that early in the first lap itself !!

Well, Kimi got ahead from 6th during the start at the 1st corner with the help of the KERS in Spa. Monza, long straight... First corner! Perfect recipe for KERS to meal on others

I really dont know whether he used Kers that time. Maybe the formation lap captured sufficient energy. But then until some thing like a restart happens just like Spa I guess Adrian does have a good chance.

Of course they can deploy! Watch the on board video of starts of Kimi/Lewis etc

Sutil will lose place to Kimi at the start definitely unless he tries to defend hard and causing damage to both cars. If he manages to hold Heikki back, he would have done a good job.

It seems there is a possibility of rain tomorrow, that would throw all strategies out of the window!

This should be renamed Mercedes F1. With 6 teams having Benz engines they taken over from everyone. If its not Brawn Mercedes its Mclaren Mercedes if its not them its FI with the Mercedes engines.
Williams might shift to Benz too..???

@pavan, Force india does not have KERS but unfortunately for them, all cars around them have KERS. i.e P1-KERS, P3-KERS, P4- KERS. So Sutil will have a tough time holding them up with genuine pace to bank on.
Sutil has always had an incident with Kimi in the past whenever hes tried to go to the top of the chart. Hope Kimi doesn't mess with him today.
As I reckon, Sutil may end up letting the KERS cars go ahead eventually to fight around in 5th place. lets see. I'd definitely want to take back those words and I hope Sutil proves me wrong.
