So another race weekend is upon us and as the Times had it yesterday, “Don’t mention the phwoar”.
On the track you’d probably expect the Ferrari’s to go well here this weekend. They often do Massa got pole, fastest lap and won last year and they and Toyota were the only teams to test here during the off season. But actually it looks like Ferrari and McLaren might have traded circuits this year as each have shifted their wheelbases. So all is not certain.
The only thing that is crucial is that Massa get of the marks. If he doesn’t score any points before F1 reaches Europe his credibility will have taken a huge knock. Even Michael Schumacher (normally a fan) has said that Massa has already used up all of his jokers and he kind of reminded everyone that he’s always really preferred Vettel. I’m sure this has made Massa feel no pressure at all going into this weekend.
But where will everyone shake out? That’s the question for all of you. Qualifying is at 11:10 am BST tomorrow and before then we want to know your Pole Man and your prediction of the top eight for the race. Good luck.
