:alright: Not to worry, Julian. F1 as we know and love it has been dying over the past few seasons anyway. But we'll have world class racing again as soon as Bernie and his clown/clone mobiles drive everyone into a stupified state.

meanwhile I'm pretending all the teams will line up Sunday and the race will be won by
Sebastian Vettel in the beautiful Red Bull Racing machine because it will make such a good story
second place will go to Jenson in his Braun machine, making his hold on the WDC almost complete
third place will be Mark Webber in the second Red Bull Machine to make a mockery of my claim last race that he always finishes five or six places behind his team mate
fourth will go to Rubens B. in the other Braun (unless he manages to COMPLETELY DESTROY the clutch at the start or in the pits)
fifth should go to the only driver on the grid that can deliver points for a Renault, namely Fernando, the Cute
sixth will go to the Iceman, making Ferrari's swan song at S-stone?
seventh will belong to Lewis Hamilton ... if he can keep his machine on the course and out of trouble
and the final point will be Nico Rosberg's in the Williams making Sir Frank feel a tiny bit better

the pole should be Jenson's by a sizable margin

I think they will turn up
My seeing eye of the future tells me ---

Winner : Mark Webber will finally break the egg, is very fast here

Second : Timo Glock, its timo for a surprise

Third : Nico Rosberg, also Nico for a surprise

Fourth : Jenson Button, Bad qualifying and off the pace :shock:

Fifth : Sebastian Vettel, dont know why they think he is so good he has only won 2 races, both in the wet. the rest of his record is very patchy

Sixth : Rubens Barrichello, same as JB

Seventh : Jarno Trulli, not his week

Eighth : Kazuki Nakajima, best of the rest

And not a red car in sight

Pole : Mark Webber, His weekend! :D
Maybe, perhaps, not sure

Sado-Max'll take a page from the France Family and give Hamilton "the Call"(in this case, a podium finish)..........speaking of throwing things, does anyone know where maksutov's death ray is? :twisted:

If Julian and the rest of you chaps are right, Kimilk might indeed be Seb. V.'s secret. If so, he's in for at least one WDC!
