Hopefully these will give me another boost!

Winner: Sebastian Vettel - Hard to beat on home ground
Second: Mark Webber - Will try his best
Third: Rubens Barrichello - Gaining in confidence
Fourth: Felipe Massa - Seems the only one willing to fight at Ferrari
Fifth: Jenson Button - His confidence levels are back to normal
Sixth: Fernando Alonso - The only one who can make something out of the Renault
Seventh: Jarno Trulli - You'd expect more from the Toyota
Eighth: Robert Kubica - BMW at home
Pole: Sebastian Vettel - Difficult to pick anyone else!
I'm back and yes supporting Alonso "The Cute" in the Ferrari!

:crush: :crush: Well, Chaps, it seems like it's been forever since there's been a RACE to talk about. I think this one will be full of fun. Especially since it's going to RAIN! :TOTW:
It looks like Jay Vee thinks Jenson will fall back now (to make room for Fernando? Not likely; I'm afraid that's just wishful thinking. :alright:)

:1st: will go to the Braun GP with the British Driver :up::up:
:2nd: will go to the Red Bull car with the German driver --if he can get over the fact that for all his skill in the rain he can't overtake a faster car...otherwise he just might not finish at all! :oops: ...
...in which case his team mate will take the second step.
But I'm planning the bronze medal :3rd: (again!) for the Colonial with the broken leg in the Red Bull machine :super: ... which leaves...
4th place for the Brazilian Driver in the other Braun GP :knight: you know, the one who's always saying he should be the number one...
5th place will go to the ever ebullient :lucky: Finn, Mr. Raikkonen, in the once mighty but now slightly comic :roll::roll: red car from Maranello... and
6th place will go to his efficient partner in the other Ferrari ...altho' it seems that lil phil has his problems in the wet, too :roll:
7th place will go to the best driver on the grid in the least competitive machine (I think he could take 7th place in a Force India!), you know, the one from Renault. I mean the two time WDC Fernando Alonso :bouncec: :bouncec:
8th place will go to the efficient brit in the teutonic sled, I mean Lewis Hamilton, the defending champion. He may move up two or three slots depending on whether or not the previously named chaps can stay on the circuit. :drive:
It's on days like this that I actually almost miss Michael's Little Brother: just think how many contenders he could take out with him! :furious:

The Pole should be Jenson's with no sweat :wave:

Have a good Race!
and may the evil twins Bernie & Max be forced to change tyres for Juan Pablo Montoya (who looks like he will make the Championship Chase in the "NASCAR Moving Chicane - Joey Chitwood Follies"

I think this is the last F1 race I have to watch on Fox TV; I sure hope so! Jim Watt :cheers:
