Spanish F1 Predictions

Very difficult given the track temperatures vs the chosen Tyres.

1 - lewis
2 - Nico
3 - The ice man Kimi

NB Perez may be a dark horse!!!!!

I had an invite to attend but buying a new boat this weekend has scuttled my chance of attending

I still can't figure out why the Mercs just fall off the pace?????
I'ts not the drivers, so it must be down to setting the car up for racing and not just for qualifying.
Ross Brawn must be under a lot of pressure now!!

Has to be frustrating. Should be better at Monaco but challenges await.

The pundits believe the unusual rear suspension geometry of Mercedes FRIC system is the culprit.
That the multitude of former (and present) technical directors at Mercedes can't get on top of this problem makes a fundamental design flaw with this chassis likely.
