Finally we come to the final race of the season... at what is quite possibly my least favourite of all the races... I can't quite put my finger on it but for some reason I always preferred Rio for the GP back in the '80's. Bit late with this thread... there's only an hour to go before the start of the race... so quali predictions go out of the window for this race! Biggest surprise is to see Schu down in 18th, after a big accident in 2nd practice yesterday which resulted in him having to have a replacement engine (he's actually using the the mule) and as such demoted 10 places down the grid! Rubens had a simply storming lap though... and upholds the Scuderia's honour!! Both Monster and Kimi look very, very strong here... but I'm guessing on Kimi being stronger in the race than Montoya, knowing McLaren's preference to run more fuel at the expense of the best grid position... expect Montoya to stop a lap or 2 earlier than Rubens and Kimi. Anyway... according to the F1 site, there's 80% chance of rain due at 2.00pm local time, meaning that it's due right at the start of the race... hopefully it'll totally pi$$ it down to give Schu a helping hand and spice things up abit... but either way if it stays dry I hope he does more of a Monza than a China!! Race prediction. Dry 1. Rubens (finally wins his home GP) 2. Raikkonen 3. Button 4. Montoya 5. Schumacher jr. 6. Schumacher Wet 1. Rubens (finally wins his home GP) 2. Schumacher 3. Fisi 4. Kimi 5. Button 6. Alonso Thoughts??
