If it's a wet race, I pick Button or Hamilton... The Brits know a thing or two about driving in the rain!

if it rains this weekend, the teams running the diffusers will have the advantage again. they have more downforce in the rain. the teams that are runner the KERS, cant lay down the power in the rain.

if it rain im going to pick Barricello. hes faster then Button in the rain. Hamilton is no doubt fast in the rain, but at the time, Brawn has a better car than Mclaren. my boy Kimi is hurting right now.

but button raised the concern about how the BGP001 will react in rain...which they never tested in the rain...
like F2008 last year.....it was fast on the dry....but quite handful in the wet...

I would have predicted a win for Vettel but he's got it all to do with his grid penalty so maybe not.

Will be great to see him flying through the field.

that's what makes F1 exciting....there's so many variables to change the outcome of a race....

with the probably rain-drama....10 grid penalty might not be that bad....
hamilton was able to regained a lot of track position in Monza as well after fail to qualify in Q2....only if there's still rain....Hamilton can be in higher position in Monza 2008....

I'm just afraid if there's any carnage in the mid field, Vettel will be caught amongst it all whilst VirBrawnDa GP romp into the distance.

Carnage could be good or bad for him...

Vettel, penalised for racing incident, may try to be more cautious when passing others. Others knowing this may try to take advantage & pass him or might even take him or each other out in doing so.

Or, Vettel, knowing that people may think he'll try to be more cautious, may drive agressively & we saw how that ended up when Kubica tried a move last weekend.

Or I could just be worrying about nothing!

You just never know in F1!

I'm watching, but on DVR. I just have to stay away from these forums until after I watch it.

hmmm...could it be an electrifying day at the track? i'm sure they've accounted for that in testing, but you never know. hell, the pit crews need a light on the car just to make sure it's safe to touch it! i think KERS is a cool concept, but it only takes one accident to ruin a potentially cool thing...the question is when is the accident going to happen?

I won't be able to see it until late Sunday.

They've already announced a rule that if anyone at the track day has seen it and spoils it for the rest of us they're getting booted from the event.
