I was talking to Guy Smith (former Le Mans winner for those who don't know) on the Roger Albert Clark Rally which he has competed in for the past couple of years and he said that he thought that rallying had helped him as a driver, so it will be interesting to see how Raikkonen feels about that.

It's silly to show your hand early and then simply fade away, so Raikkonen and Lotus better have some more in reserve if they're going to put up a fight against the other top teams.

Friday will be soaking wet, but Saturday and Sunday looked dry. We are in for a sizzling race.

As soon as I read that line I thought "This will definetly become a headline"... :) But really, this isn't much of a prediction coming from Kimi. We will still have to wait and see!

I was thinking about latest tests. Grosjean set fastest time at 4.30 and 5.30pm.
Another day Raikkonen was faster than Alonso but 2h later (on comparable 2-laps run). Lulu did his best on a 7-laps run so no comparison.
I would bet on Kimi finishing in top 3 with Alonso and Vettel.
