    you make valid points... i've been on the engine blowout lookout too... you never know ferrari might hit a green patch or they may go down in a blaze of glory. Either way I like this uncertainty... this is what I call an edge of the seat season (just like 2k7)... any outcome is still possible.
    As @UK has pointed out several times now at cooler temperatures mclarens perform better than ferrari but I still say that even though ferrari have a couple of very erratic drivers they outweigh mclarens bunch (and I dont mean that out of spite I think its a valid point if you look at both the drivers as a collective) and I really do think ferrari, what with their backs against the wall now, might just have a showing here... no rain........ please no rain!

    Massa changed his engine for the Italian GP, the so called "joker" engine change which allows each driver to change the engine once during a season without getting a penalty. So his engine is one race old going into the next round while Hamilton will get a new engine for Singapore.
    The back to back engine problems Ferrari had were found to be identical and a result of one faulty batch. It would be cruel if the championship is decided by reliability. Mclaren haven't had a lot of engine problems recently so the law of averages can catch up with them too.
    I personally would hate to see either of the two championship contenders hit by reliability problems.

    A number of ways Raikkoen can help Massa from now on. For starters, how about he ram into him and take him out of the GP? On a serious note, the team will from now on pick the optimum strategy for Massa and get Raikkonen to work around it. Now that he isn't really in the hunt for the world title ,Raikkonen might be fuelled light for example to help him over come his qualifying woes , get to the sharp end of the grid and either control the race from the front of use him to chase down Hamilton, push him hard into making a mistake. Alternatively, he could be fueled heavy and asked to slow down the field if Hamilton is ahead of Masa by some margin, both having made their pit-stops. Raikkonen can artificially close the gap back to them. If say its a wet track that is drying up and Ferrari are unsure about going for inters or grooved tires, they can call in Raikkonen, have him put on a set of tires and see how he goes for a couple of laps before deciding about Massa. Etc etc etc etc

    P: S I didn't know it was an anti-clock wise layout. If Martin Brundle is right about it being a " Fast Melbourne" then we can expect tire problems for Mr Hamilton.

    If its rain I think we could see another amazing result thats for sure and because it is a street circuit even without rain their is some chances of having an un usual result.

    If by unusual you mean a Raikkonen win then all i can say is that a Raikkonen win in any race from now on when Massa is in the race and running in the points will only help deliver the title to Mclaren and Hamilton.

    Nah, what i meant by the one "joker" engine change was that whilst you have to make one engine last 2 races and in-case there is a need to change engine before that you incur a 10 slot grid penalty. This "1 joker" engine rule allows you to change your engine one time during the season without any penalty. For example if you did Monza with your brand new engine and felt the engine might have a problem for the next race, and you have not completed your mandatory two races with it but still haven't used your " 1 joker" engine change then you could use that without having a grid penalty. Hope that kinda explains.
    Kimi used it for the British GP after he had exhaust problems in France and the engineers were not sure it would last the whole GP distance although Kimi was supposed to use the same engine he used in France for the British GP, but he used his option and changed the engine without a grid penalty.

    It should go to Ferrari`s credit for making such a lovely car. They designed a car which is very gentle on tires, it doesn't use( eat them up) like other cars on the grid. It makes them run long stints in the race with peak performance without the tires losing too much. The flip side of having a car that is so gentle on it`s tires is its inability to get the heat into the tires quickly which is where Ferrari have had problems.
    This has not been a normal summer. We have had quite a few wet races and races where the track temperature has been very low compared to what was expected, Germany being a prime example.
    Mclraen on the other hand have a car which is very hard on it`s tires. If you look at any race where the track Temperature as been anywhere near normally expected, the Mclaren have not performed well and as the race has goes on the Mclaren loses more and more time.
    That`s the main reason why Ferrari have suffered and Mclaren have looked good in the wet. Having said that, Massa seems to be able to cope with it better than Raikkonen.

    It cant be done obviously or they would have figured out a way by now.
    One way would be to have a"loose" car, a tail happy car. That would get heat in the tires by scrubbing against the surface but at the same time destroy them quickly too.

    My explanation of why they have failed to solve this problem is some what different to others. If you look at the established greats of this sport they all had a few things in common. 1. That "X" factor. That something a little extra that others don`t possess. 2. An almost never ending hunger to win and compete at the highest level. 3. Work ethic, dedication to their chosen field. 4. A history, and almost always a successful history of competing in the junior formulae and karting.
    Taking the last bit first, i feel it makes a driver complete. That experience of racing with the same machinery and then having to make small adjustments to beat your rivals in identical karts/cars is something that comes with experience. Sadly, Raikkonen has very very little experience at the junior level. If my memory serves me right, he competed in a total of two open wheel races before he was picked by Peter Sauber. Thus his inability to work with the team and help them overcome this problem.
    Can you see any of the established greats, Senna, Prost, Schumacher, Stewart struggling with a problem like this for an entire season, a season where they were fighting for the world title? I think not.

    Mark Hughes on Kimi’s new deal

    Ferrari’s decision to extend Kimi Raikkonen’s contract for another year came as a surprise to many in the Monza paddock, given his inconsistent form this season and the Maranello team’s apparent interest in Fernando Alonso and Robert Kubica.

    So we asked our expert analyst Mark Hughes to offer some posssible explanations...
