Brazilian GP: practice

Today’s second practice session didn’t go well for either McLaren, and if this is a sign of things to come in Sunday’s race, then Lewis’ title dreams are in trouble.

But, stepping back from tabloid like drama creating for a moment, Hamilton left the pits with only minutes to go, hoping to blitz a quick time in the dying seconds. Only it didn’t work, he had a huge wheel lock up at the first corner, then it started raining, and that was that for the day.

It was a huge contrast to the earlier practice one session, where he was dueling title rival Felipe Massa for quickest time, just losing out in that battle.

In the afternoon, besides the McLaren’s poor form – Lewis’ teammate Heikki Kovalainnen finished way down in 15th – Fernando Alonso saved his best for the end of the session, posting the quickest time of the day.

Alonso’s ahead of Massa, then Jarno Trulli – who had a great afternoon and topped the sheet for a large part of it – Kimi Raikkonen, Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel, Nelson Piquet, Nico Rosberg, Hamilton and Nakajima.

Let us know what you think for the pole shootout tomorrow.

Lewis will want to win the title without heikki getting involved but mclaren might have other plans.

Hopefully hamilton will be as eager as ever to win the race and go for the title in all it’s glory in the way that we all want him to!!!!!!

I think Mclaren should fuel lewis light so he can get on pole. He’s a lot less likely to have a first corner incident if he’s in front (except Fuji). Although it will compromise his race stratergy, after the first pits he is unlikely to be bunched up. So he can spend the rest of the race alone and just bring the car home.

The winner of a formula one race depend on some more than what just racer is doing at his part and even the mood towards him in the pit matters even if there is a slight spec of discomfort in it one can fail so as far as Lewis Hamilton is concerned he will not do good in his young ages as most races do alone with the politics involved in a F1 team and then beyond also participating in the game as much as what Lewis Hamilton Does although he can turn and do throttle control the engineers with a hump of ego can stop the engines revs in a corner even if they are not approving Lewis Hamilton to get a win and if that continues which it will Lewis Hamilton will might break records at about when he is in his late twenties or early 30s since at the end of the day F1 is a great team game even greater than that popular so called football thing that’s one lot ugly to start with. If Lewis Hamilton was a engineer to start with he might have won before now though since its not the racers fault to not win a race since he only plays a 1% work in a win although they are too cheeky after winning one as if they did it by themselves.

the thing lewis has to do is get out there and go for it. Thinkin in the frame of mind of being fifth and staying away from the ferraris is the wrong attitude. you have to aim for 1st or you will lose. be positive not negative.

I want Massa to win the title, but if it is because someone takes Hamilton out, I will be annoyed.

Hamilton seems like a great guy, the only thing I have against him is that he doesn’t drive a Ferrari. ;)

But with a good chance of rain tomorrow, anything could happen.

Ghosts, tyres, fuel, team… let’s see which excuse will british supporters use tomorrow.

Good luck and as a brazilian supporter I wish you good luck with the british heavy rain that we had in silverstone this year so you can try to take a piss tomorrow.

Will Mclaren make it tomorrow? I’m sure Hamilton cannot do it.

BFG, have you ever heard of a period? your post was complete, run-on sentence nonsense. i know this is just an internet blog, but come on.

and to say the driver is only 1% of the equation…seriously? so why do the top teams bother paying big money for great drivers? if theyre only going to make 1% difference, why not save some money and put Sutil or Webber or someone like that in the McLaren?

and I guarantee you Lewis and all the other drivers in F1 have a better understanding of engineering and fluid dynamics, and the application of those things, than most new engineering graduates. you cant be a driver at the level of F1 if you dont. it just doesnt happen.

uh Leo Lebkuchen, you and the other Massa fans are the one’s who need to pray. remember he is 7 POINTS DOWN. Lewis only needs 5th, no matter what that troll Massa does in front of his silly home crowd.

i’m actually glad quali happened the way it did, so that you and that disrespectful brazilian crowd have their hopes way up, just to be crushed tomorrow when Lewis gets the title.

GO LEWIS!!!
