JPMs car was 3mph slower than Kimis in the trap, something they dismissed on Friday when JPM complained about some power loss..maybe an engine change for Malaysian round? Was hoping to see a whole lot more from Honda since they have one of the best cars right now, but then Barichellos third gear broke..Button wouldve probably made podium if it werent for his clutch. The only cars slower than Toyota were Aguri & Midland..i think i remember reading somewhere that Ralf & Jarno blamed the Bridgestones having no grip. Nico seems to be very promising, scoring a point on his debut race, as well as posting fastest lap (but he did make that huge mistake in 1st lap 1st turn). Massa is a chump, wreckless & punky. Congratulations to Fernando Alonso (dont EVER dance or sing ever again, stick to your dayjob) The race itself wasnt that interesting, but none of em have been in a while anyway (not counting Suzuka last year, well always have that <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> ), this probably is just a result of my hatred for flat circuits<br> <br> <br> <br> <br>One more thing..Knockout..1st 15min session all the cars are out, no fuel or lap restrictions, slowest 6 cars are eliminated & will take the last 6 grid spots, no times will be set after the checkered flag is waved. 2nd 15min session the remaining 16 cars run in the same format, no fuel or lap restrictions, slowest 6 cars eliminated & will take the 2nd to last 6 grid spots, no times will be set aftr the checked flag is waved. 3rd 20min session the remaining 10 cars shoot for pole, no lap restrictions but will begin the session with the maximum fuel they intend to use at the start of the race, laps can be completed after checkered flag is waved. Remaining 12 cars can use the amount of fuel they wish at start of the race. Now whats so hard to understand about that?<br> <br> <BR><BR>

Nothing is really concrete about JPM's motor. It could be a mapping or sensor problem. If it was the motor, it wouldn't have lasted half of the race.<p>But JPM was also complaining about grip issues and could have used more wing. This would explain the 3mph gap.

If Renault mechanics had taken half a second more in second pit stop, Schumacher probably would have won the race. As said, this will be one of the most interesting seasons of last years.

Mclaren anounced today that there was no problem with JPM's motor. It was all in his head LOL. The problem was the setup and tyre selection. There will be no motor change for him.

They filled up Alonso's gas tank twice. He said it was something wrong with the filling machine, but i think there was just two much people not properly concentrated in his job this morning LOL. If it's true, he will go to one stop tomorrow, that's not good because his tyres will suffer too much with the heat. I say he will be third or fourth. Also, Kimi was 6th, i don't know if he had a problem or not.

I wouldn't say too easy, I'd say Renault and Alonso are the best combination still... Maclaren still needs to improve the car but I'm sure its got great possibilities. Honda, Ferrari and Toyota are not too far behind and although I doubt they are really competing for constructors championship, they can scare renault and maclaren till the end <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Montoya got married and forgot how to drive... hope he gets things going soon, or I think he's approaching the end of his career and can now go back to a private island in the atlantic ocean in colombia and live off his money for the rest of his life.<p>Doubt he's ready to do that, surely he can stilll demonstrate better?<p>Button is impressively good this season actually <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>One thing though, the fact that Button had to stop before the finish line so that the team wouldn't get an engine penalty really shows that some rules in F1 are just beyond common sense. Better than last year, but still pretty pointless. <p>Pity Webber isn't in a better car either. he cant shake his bad luck off so far, and I want to see how he really drives....

Yes, having Webber in pos 1 for some laps had to be really exciting there, wasn't it?

Fine with me, exactly like last season, having KR chasing FA right till the end. I'm sure Kimi would prefer to do just like Alonso: always on the front.<p>You also seem to forget that Alonso was just having a nice easy ride the last ten laps, with his engine running 1000rpm lower than the limit. Until that moment, he got the fastest lap. I remember he had more than 20 seconds of advantage when the second pace car came out.....that's only middle race!. Besides, it does not look wise to make your fast lap in the last one when you positively know you are not gonna win and you have to do another race with the same engine, does it? <p>To finish, chances are that Kimi will have more DNF than Fernando, if we look at statistics. That's something that not even you can deny. The fact is, Fernando Alonso is the boss in F1 today.

Alonso started from pole (how???), with Schumacher right behind him. First 2/3 of race with Alonso leading and Schumi one second behind but not stressed at all. Second pit stop, Schumi stays in three or four laps more than Alonso, so he takes the lead easily and just fade away in the distance. Last ten laps, Alonso struggling to maintain his position against Massa and Raikonnen.<p>

Come on, that's not how you win a championship. <p>And what about the Fisico-Villeneuve affair on saturday?. A show-off to save his ass! Alonso is making the car better than it really is and GF is pressing himself too much trying to do the same.

yeah, what the hell was that all about. Villeneuve was like 3-4 lengths ahead of him. was even too much to have some slipstream, something that would actually have made him faster. He was really full of it, and looks very frustrated that he can't keep up with Alonso.

But even if you give him the tenth back to his time, it wouldn't mean he would move to the next round of qualifying.<p>Problem is GF puts all his eggs on one basket. FA, JPM, MS, KR and many others have enough fuel to bang out two speed laps if need be. GF rather run less fuel (about a tenth saved per lap) and bang only one good lap. If something goes wrong, he's screwed.

Yeah, it makes sense, but Alonso had to go in anyway because he was running out of fuel, so Ferrari could have saved the trick and taken the lead at the first stop. All this means that the 248 is probably the best F1 car right now.

When they said Ferrari is getting a new V8 next race, did they mean a different/improved engine <I>or</I> just the same engine, but one that hasn't been worn out from previous races?

Just mildy improoved. The first one had piston melting issues. Both pistons and rings were redesigned on the b-spec. RPM's went up to about 19300 to 196000. The c-spec (3rd type) got some things new but the HP level is about the same. I think they fixed a balancing issue with the motor.

Alonso was a big boy too & didnt go all JPM on Schumi (god i miss those days) on the post-qualifying interviews when he was going on & on about inadvertently locking up (even though the feed obviously showed him positioning the car just outside the apex). Flavio was fuming. So both Ferraris at the very end, should be interesting. <p>Its actually very easy to pass at the Nouvelle (which is the only good chance to pass), just got to have proper instincts & the ability to not be too eager & pull an Alonso 2005 on it<br> <br>

Shame on MS, a 7 times world champion is supposed to be an example to follow, not the opposite. Well, we already knew since his first title that he just wasn't a fair player. I think that he just can't take that there's a new chief in town even without last year's problems.
