I hope it rains tomorrow and especially during Sunday race.This will make the race more interesing.Hope that at least one Red Bull or one McLaren retires and the likes of Mercedes,Lotus and Ferrari gain some good results.This would make the championship closer.

We all know that the rubber thrifter, Button, will do Hamilton come Sunday, regardless. Either that or McLaren will mess up his pit-stop once again and the end result will be the same.
Hamilton ought to give serious consideration to swapping seats with Rosberg.
Rosberg, to a lesser degree, is another rubber thrifter, bound to flourish under Whitmarsh, a snake charmer desperate to banish the ghost of Ron Dennis, the founder and original snake wrangler, no wimpy charmer, who groomed and cast Hamilton in his own image. Button is Whitmarsh's man, without a shadow of doubt.
Under Brawn, Hamilton will get the exact same support he got from Ron and with Schumacher leading the team, the car is bound to be set-up to suit his aggressive driving style more, not just for one flying lap. In addition to that, he'll get to learn the dark arts first-hand from the last of the old guard, a dying breed of hard chargers.

Brawn is a snake wrangler himself, who totally appreciates aggressive drivers and with Schumacher now in the twilight of his illustrious career, he'd be well placed to take over the number spot, having then gained the necessary experience to lead the team.
Everyone wins and the fans get a nice little subtext of England v Germany, the old enemies in bed together, a truly mouth watering prospect. It's unlikely, but logical.

I did say, it's unlikely but logical. No need to get worked up. It would be boring if we all agreed or used the same language. What good is a forum then?

Lewis looks good for pole, but the top times are very tight.
Pirelli is predicting significant tire wear and probably a three stop race, provided it doesn't rain, requiring wet rubber, or become slightly damp, which would be manageable on softs in this heat.
If it stays dry, the top three race finishers will likely have hit the tire wear cliff a little later than the others. If it rains, Button, MS, Fernando might have the advantage, depending on their respective track position and how soon they can make the necessary tire changes should it pour in the middle of the race.
I just hope we don't have a downpour that demands the teams queue up in the pits waiting to make a tire change. I'd rather see the race either begin in the wet, or have a wet track develop over a few lap's time.
Regardless, it will be interesting.
And I am surprised HRT is within the 107% rule, having not tested or run in Australia.
