Given that there is a considerable possibility for rain during the race, the spectre of Hambone (ty, JM) and the Safety Car raises it's head.
Should Webber find himself astern of Hambone just as the SC board is displayed, perhaps Hambone should prepare himself for an off track excursion? Do not Australians believe in "Fair Pplay and Justice" 8)
As Nick has generally outperformed his teammate this season, I expect Kubica will arrive at the track with a beard, and out-qualify Nick.
Nico will be eyeing the vacant seat at McLaren, and will promptly dive off-track when either Mclaren appears behind him after a pitstop.
The FIA has appointed Scott Speed to ensure that both drivers are given equitable equipment and treatment at STR, and with the Ferrari "A +" engines, Alonso and Hamilton would do well to be nervously watching their mirrors in the opening laps.
Given the Downforce requirements on this bumpy track, Super Aguri will invert their aero kit, and simply fly over the lumps, yes?
How many times has Ralf S nerfed DC off track through his career?
Ralf should consider wearing a Michelin Man suit to minimise bruising.
Fisichella will complain over his radio, then complain, and complain, and complain. At race end he will return from 19th place to an empty garage containing only smashed headsets.
If Hambone wins the WDC, a large number of people will be maimed, crippled, and slaughterd by the Media Anglais in their "bovver boots', as they stampede towards the podium.
Which will cause the cancellation of the 2008 season.

:D :D Good to see so many with faith in my [Ice] man Kimi! :up:

I think it's time for Kimi to win this thing, having taken second in '03, '04 & '05 --plus I just can't wait to hear FIA explain how come the driver with SIX wins to the other chaps' FOURS still ISN'T WDC! :gl:

So Here goes for the last time this year:
:1st: Raikkonen in the Red Car will lead the field home with 110 points for the year!
:2nd: Fernando (if he doesn't take Lewis out in the first turn!) will score the second step, beating out the Finn by ONE point (111)
:3rd: :lucky: Felipe in the other Red Car will round out the podium --and try not to weep too much during the Anthems...
4th place, driving elegantly and solidly to the WDC :updown: will be Lewis :angel: Hamilton (111 points)... but wait, if he's tied with Fernando, doesn't he LOSE?
5th: Quick :burnout: Nick again
6th: :super: Robert in the other BMW
7th: :cheers: The other Finn, Heikki K.
8th: :alright: Because he seems to own the single point slot, Mark Webber will earn the last point of 2007 (and sell it to Lewis? or Kimi?)

the pole will be Kimi's :up:

And I will toddle off to sleep until March :zzzz: (tho' BMW/Sauber says they're unveiling the 2008 car in mid January!)

And I say a hearty :thankyou: to you all. This has been REALLY Fun this year! :clap:

Here are mine!

And Fernando becomes the youngest ever triple world champion :wink:

And he will have 5 wins (the same as Kimi - Jim) :wink:

Winner: Fernando Alonso - Racing on his own but still makes it!

Second: Kimi Raikkonen - 2nd again!

Third: Felipe Massa - Is supposed to help Raikkonen

Fourth: Lewis Hamilton - Oh no, how can it slip from my hands

Fifth: Nick Heidfeld - Well he has 5th locked

Sixth: Heikki Kovalainen - Continues to beat Fisichella

Seventh: Robert Kubica - Tough race

Eighth: Nico Rosberg - Tries his best

Pole: Fernando Alonso - Who else ?

Now I know it is difficult to move to second but these picks could do it for me :D :D

Enjoy the race everyone
I'm back and yes supporting Alonso "The Cute" in the Ferrari!

Due to the pending appeal by McLaren on the Brazilian Grand Prix results. The results for the Brazilian round and the final results won't be published until then.

The date for the appeal has yet to be set.

Maximillian the Mad will strut his stuff on Nov. 15.
However he recently hinted that the result is a foregone conclusion, effectively saying that the season is over, and we have a WDC.
