Actually the August break is really needed as a relief period for the teams. It's funny to see all these people all fresh and full of energy and friendly at the beginning of the season, then to see them at the end of the season walking around like zombies ready to bite each others heads off. Yep withoput the August break it would be even worse.

Ferrari and MvLaren are very close. We'll know more after the first stop (fuel loads). Should be a good race.


Massa denies Hamilton pole

Eurosport - Sat, 25 Aug 13:27:00 2007
Felipe Massa denied Lewis Hamilton pole position for the Turkish Grand Prix by the tiniest of margins with a stunning lap right at the end of qualifying.

Championship leader Hamilton thought he had done enough to secure his second straight pole as he snatched the top spot from the Brazilian with his final flying lap.

But Ferrari driver Massa, 26, had a surprise in store as he stormed around in 1:27.329 to steal his fifth pole of the season and the eighth of his career 0.034 seconds, ironically exactly one year since he claimed his first at the same circuit.

Massa's Finnish team-mate Kimi Raikkonen had held the top spot until the final minute, but messed up the final corner of his last attempt, meaning he slipped to third on the grid.

That left him one place ahead of world champion Fernando Alonso in Hamilton's sister McLaren.

Alonso, who is celebrating his 100th Grand Prix this weekend, had gone fastest overall in the Q2 but elected to fit hard Bridgestone tyres for his final effort. It affected his qualifying speed but could pay off in terms of race strategy.

The BMW Sauber team locked out row three with Robert Kubica ahead of Nick Heidfeld.

Seventh was Heikki Kovalainen's Renault, one place ahead of Nico Rosberg's Williams while Jarno Trulli's Toyota and Giancarlo Fisichella's Renault completed the top ten.

Britain's Anthony Davidson equalled his career-best grid spot in 11th, but the Super Aguri driver was cruelly denied a place in the top ten in the final seconds of Q2 when first Rosberg and then Trulli demoted him.

David Coulthard will start 13th in his Red Bull with Jenson Button 15th for Honda, but the biggest disappointment came from Ralf Schumacher, who was only 18th fastest in his Toyota after being third on Friday.
