  1. I am pretty confident that no one in the predictions will have guessed that!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. I guessed the last one :D

  2. Something tells me this weeks predictions championship is going to be a low scoring one…

    Can’t wait to see the fuel loads. Anyone who said there would be 2 BMW’s, a Toyota and a Force India in the top 5 would have been taken away.

  3. anyone notice on tv how glock got in webber’s way at the bus stop. so he abandoned his final lap. shocker from Red Bull. every time button does badly, so do they. i’d say button very lucky.

  4. Watching quali right now…totally shocked! Glad I didn’t sleep late on this Saturday morning (afternoon for most readers). Jenson, Lewis, and Fernando knocked out after Q2! This is shocking, but entertaining at the same time…
    …Wait, FISI AT POLE!!! Coming from a team that hasn’t scored a point this year! Wow. Wow. Shocked beforehand? I think just about fell out of my chair.

  5. Great stuff from Fisichella and Force India, and from Toyota and BMW Sauber, too. It makes me think, though: what in heaven’s name have these guys been up to all season?

  6. I have never been so shocked. EJ said Fisi on pole no chance! He’s clearly the mystic meg of f1;)
    Great to see BMW and Toyota moving forward and hope they do well

    Imagine if these teams had this sort of pace throughout the year everyteam on the grid would be challenging for podiums.

    This grid line up is very interesting as Button could get mugged by a KERS car or go wide at La Source or get caught up in other people’s battles. Red Bull though didn’t deliver but I’m still confident they can achieve something even from 8th & 9th. Fisichella well done amazing driving and team work for whole of Force India.

    BMW Sauber they just looked brilliant I actually think the F1.09B is an attractive car now , well when it was going at those amazing speeds & Toyota glad for them especially Trulli his showing his gonna be a key factor if Toyota want to ever achieve success.

    Kimi good work from him again and he could benefit massively on the first lap out of La Source bang KERS and who knows from 6th to 3rd or higher.

    & Last but not least Barrichello proving that his hungry for the title and showing us that Jenson actually aint all that and when the going gets tough he seems to crumble badly and Barrichello is in a great position to attack him.

  8. Italian 1-2! A bit early for Monza. When was the last time that happened?

  9. Trulli & Fisichella want so much Badoer’s seat !

    1. Isnt it strange that they manage to pull something out of the bag when there may be an extra something in it for them, a cynic may say that the effort pu into quali today is what toyota and FI pay for all season!!!!

    Dispointing for Mclaren and Brawn But the Mclaren should get off a good coz of Kers and should pick up a couple of places, Kimi should pick up places us well.

    Force india shocked every1 with pole for Fisi i actually thought one of the Toyota or BMWs but its good 2 have someone different on pole not like Regulars e.g Lewis Hamilton Button or Mark Webber

    The pace of the Mclarens and Brawns were absolutely poor even Brawn werent expected 2 do good But Mclaren at least Hamilton Should have made it to Q3 i dont how Mclaren are losing a couple of tenths cumming 2 sector 2 Its not only them its other drivers as well. Im hopeful Hamilton and Button should pick up to 1-3 points

    Red bulls still off the pace a bit despite being in their Strong territory, cool weather they thould definetly finish in points zone in 5th and 4th i think Vettel will finish 4th with webber 5th

    BMWs looking strong as well With Heidfield starting 3rd and Kubica 5th impressive but the question is will be drivers be driving in an F1 car next season?

    My predictions for finishing Grid
    1st Rubens Barrichello
    2nd Kimi Raikkonen
    3rd Jarno Truill
    4th Sebastian Vettel
    5th Mark Webber
    6th Robert Kubica
    7th Lewis Hamilton
    8th Jenson Button
    9th Nico Rosberg
    10th Nick Heidfield
    11th Giancarlo Fisichella
    12th Fernando Alonso
    13th Heikki Kovalainen
    14th Adrian Sutil
    15th Timo Glock
    16th Roman Grosjean
    17th Sebastien Buemi
    18th Jaime Alguersuari
    19th Kazuzi Nakajima
    20th Luca Badoer

    Sorry i will rephrase some wrong sentences

    1. Dispointing for Mclaren and Brawn. But the Mclarens should get off to a good start coz of Kers in their Cars espicallly when there on the Hill cumming out of Eau rouge

    2 The pace of the Mclarens and Brawns were absolutely Poor Thought Brawn werent expecting 2 look strong But i dont understand why the Mclarens Especially Hamilton i kept losing a couple of tenths cumming 2 sector 2 i kept panicking about where would he start and ended up 12th. i almost began 2 cry.Although i am very that Hamilton and Button will pick up 1-3 Points.

    3. The Red bulls Look a bit off the Pace despite being in their strong territory which is, cool Weather Both Vettel And Webber should Definetely finish in points 4th and 5th Respectively.

    4. BMWs looks strong for 2morrow’s race as Heidfield and Kubica starting 3th and 5th in order of Names.But the questions is are both drivers gonna be in an F1 car next season.
