The 2007 Canadian Grand Prix

Post by gkaytaz » Wed Jun 06, 2007 9:13 pm

With the Canadian GP approaching, I'd like to ask your opinion on the following:

1. Super soft compound: How many will crash at the final chicane?

2. FW28 and Rosberg: They have been eating dust last year at Montreal and Indianapolis but this year seems to be a tad different. How well would you expect the FW28 to perform?

3. STRs new aero package: Could it be that they will score their first point(s) of the season?

Ok, Lewis may win the WDC in 07, but Sato will beat him in 08.

With a number of rookies, I expect a few!
The wall of champions had a number of vicitims over the years.

Nico will be fighting for points. Not sure about Wurz though!

Doubt that STR can score points without major dramas up front and even then, Super Aguri will beat them

You mean in Monaco ?

Monaco is so different that results there can't be applied anywhere else!

I hope he doesn't, but with Lewis's aggressive style I half expect him to be the victim of the wall this year :cry:

Any others?

I tend to agree. Monaco is such a slow circuit the technical specs of the cars do not matter that much. Canada on the other hand is one of the fastest circuits. The difference will be noticeable I think.

Don't like the idea much but come to think of it I have to agree with you. I think Sutil may end up there as well.

So basically even though we shouldn't mention it... most of us have at least considered the possibility of LH meeting "the wall".... it has caught many good drivers in the past and I am sure it will be the downfall of a few this weekend. :wink:
