Winner : Kimi Raikkonen -- no more crashing into competitors this time!

Second : Felipe Massa -- I am very optimistic for the Brasilian

Third : Heikki Kovalainen -- can't put the two Finns together, since I believe in a Ferrari one-two and I see Raikkonen fastest in the race

Fourth : Robert Kubica -- Still at the top!

Fifth : Lewis Hamilton -- I don't think the McLaren will arrive in front this time. And Lewis may want to take it easy after the last race incident.

Sixth : Jarno Trulli -- Will the redesigned Toyota do well in low-downforce configuration? How will it negociate the kerbs? I am optimistic

Seventh : Fernando Alonso -- Should be a solid race but not a great race for Renault, the new suspension is due later

Eighth : Sebastien Bourdais -- Seeing Sebastian Vettel's performance at Monaco with the new car, it seems not unreasonable to imagine a Toro Rosso in the points at Montreal

Pole : Felipe Massa -- Ferrari is fast! Massa too!
