Hamilton takes pole postion.
« on: Mar 15, 08, 04:24 »
What a start to the new season.

Kimi is already back to the wall as his car had a fuel pressure problem. The reliability which was haunting them in the 2007 is back again.

McLaren and BMW looks pretty much on heir own. And there is going to be a 3 way (If Ferrari able to up the pace) race this year.

Toyota's good showing is a relief and Honda's not so bad performance is also welcome. But Williams kept the promise by making to the Q3.  Obviously Nakajima still a liability to the Williams.

Tomorrows BMW performance will depend upon their fuel startegy. I feel Massa carried more fuel and may end up in the podium.

I cant wait for the race to start.

Vettel performance in STR is also comes as a surprise. His team's performance should be looked in the background of the struggle the Hondas and Toyotas are waging to put up a decent performance. I feel Vittal is on a very light fuel.

Disappointing is the Force India F1. After all the big expectation after the Fisichella's performance, it came as a cropper! Hope their 2 cars complete the race.
