    Wow, Heikki Kovalainen actually has some speed this weekend, nice to see that Hamilton might actually have some support out there on the track.

    I get the impression Massa was light... but it's going to be interesting without a doubt - I wonder how late Alonso's going to brake into the first corner with a couple of McLarens in front of him. :D

    I'm hoping it rains like the chances suggest but Hamiltons in it now; that first corner is going to be vital for everyone especially if its wet.

    Massa looks like he is definitely carrying less fuel than Hamilton, going to be an interesting race.

    Massa had to be on pole for the chance of winning the championship. From there he can drive away with a light car and try and build a gap. I think Hamilton could be trying a strange fuel strategy.

    I think Hamiltons just gone ultra-conservative to reduce the risks of safety cars and rain. Should be a good race though, I can't wait!

    Just for once I'm actually hoping for a dull, processional race. Looks like Ferrari are going to take the constructors championship tho. I wonder if Kubica will be able to recover far enough up the field to hold onto third? He's 6 points clear of Kimi, so it's possible, but he really needs to get into the points to make sure.

    :) Excellent, I wonder which version of Massa we will see, lights to finish? Or Silverstone again?

    Normally I'd say rain = good for Lewis and very bad for Massa but I have this horrible sinking feeling especially with at least three Ferrari's out on the same track as Lewis.

    Silverstone, hopefully, that was hilarious :D I swear that the cheering when he came round right at the back after the first spin was louder than when Lewis won the race...
