  1. Its goin to to be ferrari this weekend

    1. Two consecutive wins would be amazing and a serious wake up call for the red bulls, but remember, Alonso would have not won if it wasn’t for that mistake in the pits… good luck Ferrari or anyone other than RBR.

        Alonso would have not won if it wasn’t for that mistake in the pits

        How do you know? Even C. Horner said Fernando Alonso would probably have passed Seb anyway. There were two circumstances at Silverstone favoring Alonso more than the long RBR pitstop: the blown diffuser rule and the intermediate tyres (instead of a mandatory stint in the hard ones). And btw the first pitstop of FA was also way too long.

        1. And even when Vettel broke free of Hamilton, Alonso was still pulling away from him.

          1. Yes exactly..i think many people acknowledge that ferrai and fernando just plain down had the pace at silverstone..vettel horner and webber have all come out and said fair play to ferrari they beat us and wer faster on the day wen it mattered.i jus hope this weekend we have another good race on our retirements for the top 6 and jus a fair fight for the win…i hope its an FA win followed by massa n webber..i dont think macca has gr8 pace…i do hope they show up on sunday n take points away from the red bulls tho.

    2. Nah, I think Webber will upset Seb and take his first win of the season here.

  2. Wonder if it’ll rain in quali?

    1. mwahahahaha….

    2. Well if it rains in qualy or race it wil affect the ferraris as they dont warm up there tyres aswell as the others..besides it seems as tho everytime it rains nowadays in f1 we end up being stuck with watchin the safety car for a monotonous amount of laps, its weird coz before i wud pray for its the opposite.instead of spicing things rather jus makes it abit boring i rate.

      1. same here


  4. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if it was a wet race and there was a few incidents up front so we ended u with a podium without any of the top 3 teams drivers on? I would love it. For example – 1st Heidfeld, 2nd Kobayashi, 3rd Schumacher.

    1. That would certainly juice things up! And I completely agree with Kobayashi and Shcumacher deserving a podium finish anytime soon, especially Kobayashi, there have been so many times when I thought that he had a serious chance at a podium step. In particular, the Monaco Grand Prix, I just had this feeling that the struggling Vettel was going to defend too hard against an aggressive Alonso and that the three leaders would plum it into a pile up letting Sutil (I think) and Kobayashi take the podium.
      Although, personal preference, I would like to see Petrov win a race before Heidfield.

      Alas, Underdog Victories are always the most enjoyable races.

    2. I’d rather watch Heidfeld and Rosberg battle for the win. It’d be great if one of them broke their duck tomorrow.

      Unlikely, I know. But Fisichella did win at Interlagos in 2003 :)

  5. Webber=pole, Webber, Vettel, Hamilton, Alonso, Button

  6. I don’t know why i go on playing this game… I always end up with 7 miserable points…

    Predicting the outcome of an event which has such varying parameters is nothing more than wishful thinking and makes that outcome only wild speculation at best. Foolish as it is yet somehow compelling.

  8. Anyone else pick an all HRT front row? :)

  9. i really am just guessing know…. based on my performance so far i don’t even trust my self to predict when i am going to go to bed.

    I love this sport

  10. Webber pole, Fernando win.

  11. My heart says Webber or Alonso, head says Vettel. Head won.

  12. Vettel can win only if he manages to clinch pole today. Ferrari s are improving at a great pace, jus hoping it s not too late.


  14. Rain Rain Rain !
    Schumi Schumi Schumi !

    (pointless post)

    1. Yes same here! Alonso win, Schumi on podium!!!

  15. Keith i entered my Prediction with 3 mins to go and it says it may not be counted….Please Help!!

  16. That´s twice I am exactly 160 thousands from Mark´s pole. Had Seb for both, but.

    i think it will be webber, followed by hamilton, vettel and alonso. webber easily has the speed to win. hamilton will not be quicker than those behind him, but simply get in the way. ferrari will probably make a ridiculous mistake, as they usually do when they need a good result. thats just my feeling on it anyway.
