Well it's all about the tyres really. Canada became an interesting race because the tyres made such a huge difference. Cars were on completely different strategies, some struggling badly when others were flying on a new set of rubber.
This year in Valencia Bridgestone will supply the medium and super soft, just like at Canada. Last year they brought soft and super soft.
And yes, considering McLaren won their first race of 2009 here, I guess they will be pretty strong again. Alltogether this is a track with rather long high speed "straights" as well.
