    That was a WONDERFUL qualifying from Rubinho. It’s the best thing he could’ve hoped for for the race, with Button in 14th and Vettel down in 17th.
    Buemi was pretty good too.
    Tomorrow will be exciting!!

      Totally, even better with HAM and KOV behind BUT. I reckon they have the same fuel strategy as BUT, but a better starting history. It’ll be very interesting.

  3. I would say it is almost certain Webber has more fuel that Rubens. I reckon he is the tip for the race provided he can keep it together (which I reckon he can).

    Webber to win Brazil GP.

    As long as Barrichello has a bit of fuel in the tank and he doesn’t bog down at the start, he should be in a good position for the win. Having said that, Webber’s chances are pretty good too.

  5. Maybe some consolation news for Vettel. Liuzzi WILL take the five place grid drop for a changed gearbox!

    Moving Vettel even closer to his WDC rival.. so to speak.

    Should be an exciting race and hopefully will still be a three horse race for the WDC in Abu Dhabi.

    Anybody else think that Kimi will take out Sutil again? Eh? Anybody? :)

    • Kimi take out Sutil ????? Oh, surely not….LOL :)

      Not to wish anyone bad luck, but I could almost hope Kimi WOULD nudge Sutil round a bit at the Senna S, nothing big enough for a safety car mind you, just enough to scramble the cars behind.

      Then we’d see Rubens & Webber pull well away from the field, and have a grand time watching the two “old guys” fighting it out. Might be the most interesting racing of the season.

      And have your earplugs ready for the finish if Rubens does win it….Rubens wins with Massa waving the checker(he is still doing that, yes?) … my gracious, the fans will blow the roof off the place!

    Here’s a stat for you Keith ;)

    As far as I’m aware, this is the first time in the new qualifying system that all the cars are actually in time order despite the three different sessions. Looking down the timesheets you normally expect to see Q2 times faster then the final session but because of the rain, it was all up in the ir (quite literally).

    Now, if next year we could have a whole season like the second half of this one, I’ll be pretty satisfied.
