      weird the Ferraris went out on soft tyres that early in Q1.

      then, did they simply though Massa is safe and did not send him out for one more run ? they do miss Ross Brawn …

        Ferrari is fighting a guerilla war in 2009. You tell me how they are doing. Once they get their super diffusers it is game over. Massa and Raikkonen are clearly the sexiest guys on the track. they just need boob-jobs.

          I’m donating my 3 bottles of Mumms to someone who will buy it. My hope is that FW1 will set up an auction. I can’;t drink Mumms. It’s too expensive for my taste? I’m a reformed alchoholic? I would down those bottles inside of three minutes? All of the above.

          Ferrari will buy these bottles for 3 million dollars. 1 million dollars per bottle. The money will go for kids in Sudan. Only sponsered by Obama. You would be amazed by how fast I run to approve.

    Terrible mistake from Ferrari. Massa was in the garage when 4th but things were changing super fast. Just watching the sector times was enough to go out again. Forget the tires, just go for one more lap.
