Bets on first person into the wall of champions? Having said that I don't remember many in the last two years. Kobayashi early in the race in 2010, then Vettel in Free Practice in 2011.

I'm going to go on a limb and say it'll be Maldonado again, hot off the heels off a fantastic Barcelona and disastrous Monaco - he feels that he needs to prove he is a title contender this year, and goes pushing too hard.

i hope that if it is wet this time, like it was last year, the stewards are not so overly cautious. it was silly last time, we can all remember many wet races much worse where the drivers just got on with it - they are the finest drivers in the world and cannot show their skill in the wet behind a safety car - really hope that if it is wet there is none of that this time, or at least very very little of it

What rubbish! Even to an untrained eye, the tyre warming technique employed by each driver as they weave at 70mph on the straights behind the safety car is a work of art! :mrgreen:

I could see both Massa and Maldonado doing it, but I could also see Vettel - feeling he needs to re-establish himself over Webber and prove he doesn't need the best car to win - going in there once again.

I'll put my money on Maldonado. :)

Hamilton and Alonso haven't landed there yet have they? It's surely time that one of them met up with it.

Igor is a pretty good bet for me too though.

Calling someone Mr Wally Wall McWallWall because he parked his Ferrari at Rascasse that one time: OK.

Calling someone what you do, because of their physical appearance, is cretinous and inexcusable.

It's not because of their physical appearance, it's because of their mental appearance ;) You're the one drawing the physical parallels.

for me the true question is :will Schumacher beat Rosberg in qualy ? Rosberg was really good in qualy last year if I´m not mistaken .
But a AMG-Mercedes pole is a must
