Default 2010 F1 Istanbul - Turkish Grand prix

Seventh race of the season.

Things are getting exciting.

Redbulls are giving everyone sleepless nights.

So is Michael Schumacher's old found form

He might get to the podium many times this year soon.

Force India are now amongst the top 10 contenders, its time they find a couple of podiums this year.

Istanbul park is a high speed circuit, most suitable for the Redbulls. Must see who stops the raging bull this time.

Practice 1 10:00 - 11:30
Practice 2 14:00 - 15:30

Rightly said :-
I think Ferrari or Merc will have to do something extra to beat Red Bulls.
But, the drivers & team standings r in perfect shape. No one has big advantage at this stage.
I just hope Schumi comes in TOP 3 this time atleast.
Will Button bounce back to top of the standings ? or Alonso will go on top ?

Its exciting and more exciting now onwards !!!!!
Cheers !

One thing am sure about!

If Massa fails here then he can start packing his bags from Ferrari!

Question Agree

Yes indeed !
He has been disappointing all along this yr.
Didn't expect him to loose all the aggression after the accident last yr !

But, then - who next for Ferrari ? ;-)

i am pretty sure massa has already packed his bags he is in awfully bad form and Luca realizes he has made the mistake by dumping kimi lol!!

Imagine Kimi and Alonso in one team man that would have been too good

agreed .. Kimi could have been a better option.
M sure Ferrari engineers would do their best to re-engineer their cars for next season. Otherwise, similar to last year they r loosing advantage this year too. (From Engine / performance perspective).

Its not only Kimi, the conspiracy theory around Ferrari says they lost Michael Schumacher for Massa.

Why would a racer like Schumi confirm a comeback for Ferrari , test drive for them and later says not making a comeback. And 3 months later the Dude's driving the Mercedes GP

Ferrari's loss was Mercedes Gain.

Massa has infact lost agression, but still a good racer, but thats not enough.

I guess massa has lost the backing he used to have when micheal was there; which in turn hampered their own chances of developing the car to kimi preferences (who was obviously faster of the two drivers) and lost one championship for sure that is 2008

Kimi clearly showed his speed when Ferrari stopped developing the F60 from Hungary!

Even Michael was forced to retire back in 2006 by Luca for various reasons.

Its history anyway!

Some of you guys above are extremely optimistic to have predicted many podium finishes for Schumacher.

I think the time has come for Vettel to fight back and reclaim his top position at Red Bull, so I'm expecting him in the front row for both Saturday and Sunday. Alonso looked really strong with his Ferrari at Monaco, so barring any unforeseen circumstances, he is definitely a podium contender. And who knows what Webber can pull off again, maybe another podium finish if not a race win?

McLaren seem to have lost their momentum mid way into the season. It would be exciting to see another Hamilton vs. Alonso duel, now that both the cars look evenly matched.

A powerful engine is a good advantage in Turkey.
If the Mercedes engined cars are not on the front row, then we'll atleast see a lot of overtaking.
Bring on the Hamiltainment, I say!

It's extremely hard to imagine anyone other than Red Bull taking the top two steps. They really are head and shoulders above the rest and I think reliability is the only hurdle which stands between them and utter domination.

I really hope someone puts an end to the Redbull domination.

It is getting too predictable to watch qualifying these days.

Actually its cars that do well on high-speed corners that will excel here. Outright engine power would be needed at high speed circuits like Monza and Spa. RBR, Ferrari should do well at Turkey. McLaren know that this kind of circuit is usually their Achilles heel and have improved this year. How much remains to be seen.
