    I won't make any ridiculous predictions about final positions for the race.

    Did anyone see Albers RUN OVER Schumacher (both in their cars) on his way to the grid? Absolutely ridiculous.

    I'm predicting

    1) Alonso
    2) Kimi
    3) Montoya
    4) Fisi

    Thats all I care about. ;)

    Apparently, you're not supposed to pass on that staging lap. Way to make Schumi start from the pits.

    And how about Sato jumping that start. "Great start, Taku!" over the radio. Hilarious.

    Alonso is definitely 3 stopping it. Look at how much faster he's pacing everyone. He's super light on fuel. His early lead is definitely misleading.

    I want nothing more then to see Alonso and Fisi crash and burn...HARD. I really hope Alonso doesnt win but I have a feeling he will.

    Looks bad for Mclaren after Montoya ran over that debris on the curb. Having an extra pit stop to change that front tire will slow him down a bunch.

    Alonso's lead thrown away by safety car out for loose drain cover on curb! Take that, 3 stop strategy.

    Doesnt mean much if Montoya is way the f*ck in the back. Sato needs to kamakaze right into Fisichella.

    Yeah, Mclaren is definitely cooked, with Montoya out after that curb damage. Unless somehow Kimi's ends up on the podium, but one of the Renaults doesn't.

    Yeah, seriously. Unless that was oil eater on the track, these guys are clueless.

    This race is taking forever though. If the safety car comes out once more, i think i might have to call it a night.

    This race is looking like a Nascrap race.....75% of the race has been behind the safety car. Screw this.

    Well, I guess I'll go ahead and say it....Renaults gonna win the Constructors champ too. :mad:

    For those who didn't already pick that up from your other posts... :p

    I actually thought it was a pretty entertaining race. It's always good to see a bit of spontaneity. I still don't understand why Michael spun. I'd say he's just not competent but I left my flame-retardant suit in the car. In all seriousness, it sounds like he just isn't in-tune with the Ferrari...


    ...Still!

    His brother certainly put in a good drive. I thought he'd lost it when he didn't pit during the safety car that second time but he held on for a good finish. Well done.

    As for Webber, he could do with a car with some horsepower. William's straight-line performance is about as brilliant as 128MB of RAM for OSX (I had to bring up Macs sooner or later). I hope the V8 is better. :)

    Absolutely horrible race! Reminded me of a damn Nascrap race...75% of the race was run behind the safety car. Bah.

    Ralph did surprise me, especially since he had been complaining about how crappy the car had been handling all weekend. Basically, this race summed up the entire season:

    Michael Schumi getting screwed, Montoya having AWESOME(sarcasm) luck, Kimi driving like a bat out of hell just for position, and Alonso having all the luck in the world.

    Just in case it wasnt clear before.....I absolutely hate Renault.

    Bah, and whats even worse is now we have to deal with V8s. Awesome
    :cool:

    The sound of a high revving V10 at 18k RPM is absolute heaven. I'm not sure I can say the same for V8s. Hopefully they will surprise me.
