Can't always depend on a dry race. Your engineering department needs to find out why you guys haven't been doing so hot on Qualifying when it counts especially in changeable conditions.

Even with a mild precipitation presence, the exhuast emissions from an average 20000 ( spectator/crew ) vehicles to the track would probably add an extra precipitation weight, a factor whether heavy enough to tilt the balance in the favor of some rain, is a risky one to bet on.

Me thinks mclaren/lotus seem to have gotten it right with a dry-race setup!

All the teams will have noted it should be a dry race, so they will have used dry suspension settings and do the best they could in wet qualifying. Should be very interesting, but Mercedes look strong with their top speed. C'mon Schumi.

Once again Alonso + team use their brains and Hamilton + team don't use their brains (do they have any?). The obvious thing to do was to pick up a new set of tyres half way through Q3 to have the best tyres when then conditions were best. Alonso thought of that but for some reason (as always) team Hamilton completely missed that trick. Hence no improvement at all in the entire second half of the session while everybody else was going faster.

A win IS unrealistic unless one of the Mclarens gets a crazy start and picks up at least 2 places right there.

You have to laugh at all of these arm chair formula one racers! They know everything about the drivers and teams yet we never heard or seen them on any grid unless it is a play station! can someone say LOSERS!
