Yeah so do I. They are good rumours and I hope they are true.

The only thing I do know, is that my picks are stuffed.
Ok, Lewis may win the WDC in 07, but Sato will beat him in 08.

Is there any evidence to suggest Nico and Mark are running heavier than Fisi? Apparantly Fisi and Fernando were supposed to be on the same strategy but there was a problem with Fernando's rig. I can't believe he would have gone light :shock: It wouldn't make any sense. Jenson on the other hand is probably light but I wouldn't bank on it he probably has a little less than Fisi and was banking on being first into turn one and building a lead. :? That is unlikely now so I hope they have a plan B which they patently didn't have last week. :x

The author of the article in GrandPrix.com who is at the track, said that the Williams cars were clearly faster than the Hondas and said that the only reason for the big time gap between the front row and the rest had to be down to both fisi and Button being light. Sir Frank was quoted as saying that Nico was runnining lighter than MW :wink:

You wouldn't normally expect that sort of comment would you? It might be giving the oposition too much to go on.:shock:

I agree. MW has been consistently half a second or more quicker than Nico . . . so to have virtually identical lap times points to what, 4 or 5 laps more fuel . . . which is the kind of buffer you want between the cars to give you options when you pit either of them . . .

This will be a fascinating race though. I am in the mood for two Williams podiums tonight.
Today's mighty oak is yesterdays nut that held its ground. . . there is hope for us all.

What a weird grid for Malaysia.

Looks like my glory of 2nd place will be very short lived, unless Raikkonnen wins, MSchu 2nd, Alo 3rd, Butt 4th, Monya 5th, Web 6th, Fisi 7th and Rosb 8th.

Oh well, I think strategy is out the door for the next race...

Any why, i think every one including me can't predict the right race order :roll: but all can pick 6/8 and most of us have zero pole point -- other than button lover-- :evil:
5th in 2005 in 8 & Pole
18th in 2010 in 10&Pole
