Kubica did very well also especially after his crash at Montreal a few weeks back. I think he could be a challenger in time for the title.

Raikkonen is garbage in a very good car

In general the McClaren cars have been m8ch better than the ferraris this year.

If it wasn't for a slight slip up from the grid and poor tactics from the McClaren team yesterday, Hamilton would have been second.

Hope he wins at Silverstone now though! :PRAY:

Teams tend to use free practice to tinker with settings on downforce, brakes etc ahead of qualifying so I wouldn't take too much notice of either the morning or afternoon times.

Personally, I love a bit of rain in F1 every now and again. The FIA seem desperate to have races in places where it's less likely to happen these days (i.e. Bahrain rather than Belgium), but I think it adds to the test of both the driving ability and the team grasp of strategy.

Just think back to the Hungarian GP last year and Button's win for an example of the mayhem and excitement changeable weather adds to a GP.

Qualifying tomorrow will determine who wins the real thing for me.

If you're on pole at Silverstone it is all in you own hands.

If you drive mistake free it won't matter about the rest.

Come on Hamilton! :D
