I suspect lighter fuel load on Renaults. If that is the case Alonso will try to fly at the start. With help from Fisichella, Renaults may extend the Alonso's lead as Fisi may block MS progress.

If the start is bad for Fisi then he will kicked out of Renaults!

It all depends upon the fuel they carry and again their pit stop strategy! MS looks carrying 3 or 4 laps more fuel. And goin by the speed traps measure Ferraris are the fastest here. Again a strong showing by Ferraris.

I hope Massa and MS takes on Fisi early, as Fisi has not shown nerves holdin his positions.

It is the start that is going to decide.

As per the commentators, last year Renaults has adopted 3 stop strategy coming into fueling afetr 8 lap last time.

If U see MS in the tail of Alonso by lap 2, please know it is MS who wins this race!

Rubens got the monkey off him! Button wil keep quiet here afterwards. But the problem with Rubens is that he squanders all the good position in the start of the race itself! Hope he keeps his position in the earlier part of the game.

McLaren?!

U know now why Franck Montagny kicked out of Renaults. He is not fast enough to be in a super team!

F1Racing.net can exclusively reveal that Robert Doornbos will replace Christian Klien after the Spanish Grand Prix weekend. The Dutch Red Bull test driver secured the seat after his sponsor paid a total of 15 million euro, making it the most expensive seat ever in Formula 1 history.
 

Although Christian Klien is showing a great performance this season the Red Bull team has apparently decided to replace him in favour of Doornbos' money. Doornbos was already paying eight million euro for his job as Red Bull's test driver, but his sponsor Muermans will pay an extra seven million euro to have the Dutchman back on the grid.

The last Grand Prix Doornbos raced was the Chinese Grand Prix in October 2005 with the Minardi team.

Liuzzi is not a happy man in the paddock as he would have expected to race for Red Bull when a seat was available. Liuzzi has been a Red Bull driver for many years, and shared a seat with Klien in 2005 at Red Bull Racing.


Doornbos to replace Klien

Another Midland but expensive one!
