I see at least someone is trying to change the subject....
It will be here before you know it, so might as well get it started.
Can Hamilton repeat, or will he continue to be snake-bit?
Another McLaren front row?
Will we see any penalty / sanction against Vettel?
Who will qualifying higher, Kimi or Grosjean?
What about Mercedes, will Michael continue to qualify well?
Is Masa still in a Ferrari?
What about Perez?
I would fancy a Mercedes or Lotus before RB. Race probably different.
I'm gonna put my money on Hamilton this time. Unless there are other than complete dry conditions. Would really like to see strong performances from Lotus/Kimi and Schumacher/Merc....
If it is dry race, i'm thinking Ferrari (Alonso) no higher than 5-7th....

Last year RBR made up enough time through sector 2 to make up for the lack of speed, but this year they don't have that cornering advantage. McL should be able to walk away with this if they can run a clean race.
In other news my bet with Mr. KFZ is looking dismal at best.
This is Hamilton's race for sure. I think he is feeling some frustration given the fact that his car has the pace.
If it is dry it will be:
If it is wet I would presume there will be another incident involving Vettel that will spark a 6 page thread between Nicky-baby and the MK1meister.
Yes. If Hamilton dominates Quali, look out for a good performance. Not gonna call a front row, but I expect a good showing.
Vettel, needs to be humbled... Growing a little face stubble does make you Flatbush Ave ready... Hit this sucka up already...
Kimi.... Grosjean, is still timid...not a limit driver...
I actually am dying to see MS back at the front... DYING!
Massa ship has sailed. Fcars PR is terrible...
Checo.....is good... Can be better, no Nico Hulk, but at least satifactory. I didn't put alot of stock in his fluke performance. The Williams is just a step up from last car...so we're seeing that play out in track. Even Kobe looks a bit "faster"
Oh boy.... Ms has traditionally done poorly at CHN
12-04, Retired-05, 1st-06, 10th-10, 8th-11.... What basis do you place your assertions on? I understand the MB GP 04 looks good, but they're limping on tire issues.
You do everything in your power to deny clear reasoning....
I agree, that if the driver ahead pits, and the driver behind was being held up and gets clear air, that yes, you can pass in the pits (the whole 'undercut' thing). However, there are so many other factors involved in that that are out of the driver's control. For example, problems w/ the equipment (jack, gun, etc.), or getting held up because another car is coming down the pit lane and you can't release your driver, or not timing it right, and getting caught up among other cars. Passing someone in the pits is more about strategy than it is racecraft / driver ability.
I don't recall Webber having any pit difficulties.
Also, you can't really make a pit strategy work if you don't have a driver to pull it off. Take a look at Ross Brawn and Schumacher and the strategies they pulled off thanks to Michael's ability to push that extra bit harder when it counted.
But whatever, I really don't feel like engaging in another pissing match with you. If you want to believe Webber is better than Vettel, go for it
I would still like to see the data behind your claim that most passes in F1 occur in the pits. You know, because you always present facts.
PS. No need to give me that snide bullsh*t at the end of your post
I'm making an effort to be civil and all you can do is continue to try and drag things out into a pissing match. Get over it.
Lewis will most likely pull another pole here... 3 in a row. Unless McL messes something up with tires/strategy, it should be his to loose.
I doubt Alonso will be able to pull off another miracle, but predict his lovely 5th place again.
Perez should shine again, unfortunately will be lower in the points rather than up. Most likely behind Schumacher/Rosberg. Should be a fun battle between them and Kimi.
Massa - LOL... doubt he'll be in points again.
Vettel/Webber will be in their usual form, but doubt Webber will be able to beat Vettel during qualifying, hoping otherwise.
Button for his second win of the season?
