Back to the subject in hand. Yesterday at Monza Massa played a cool qualifying in the driving rain and starts near the front while Lewis has a real job on his hands starting out of sight somewhere at the back. Will it rain? Will the full wets (or lack of them) play a part? Its going to be a good race so Im not going to Auto-Italia, instead will be watching the 1,000kms Silverstone and F1 race courtesy of the Gales with Steve while the three fair ladies rustle up some Sunday lunch. How bad is that!

Genuinely - given the list of cars you have in your fleet, stick any of them next to any Ferrari you care to choose, and I'd be more interested in your Sud, or 3P or Fulvia...

Well, it did rain and in the end nothing much has changed with just one point between Massa and Hamilton. Now comes the first ever night race in Singapore. Cant wait to see F1 cars sporting a bank of high powered spotlamps!

Sorry Peter but that sounds like a Ferrari supporter being a bit churlish, no doubt about it in qualifying yesterday, Mc Laren, Hamilton & his race engineer got it wrong and he went out too late & on the wrong tyres; but in the race itself, Lewis came from 15th on the grid to finish 7th, Kimi came from 14th on the grid to 9th, and much as I like Massa he finished in the same position as he started, Hamilton had everything to lose and drove a fantastic race to still finish 1 point in front of Massa, and if it had rained as forecast, and he hadn't had to come in for tyres he may well have been in front of Massa, but that's F1 for you.
But man of the race was Sebastian Vethel, what a drive, & with a Ferrari engine Grin

Singapore certainly sounds like fun, I wonder how they are going to manage that!

Like Ian, I'm not a great lover of modern Ferrari Road cars, the older cars, Yes, but I think there are nicer cars out there rather than the modern Ferrari Posing machines, technically brilliant though they may be.

 And while I'm at it, although I like the styling of Lamborghini's how many get driven any distance on the public highway? everything you see up for sale has low mileage, so I can't see the point of owning them other than for show. I hate to see them turn up to meetings on trailers, and then get driven a mile or two to the events as I've seen happen at Brooklands for Autoitalia.
At least the Maserati's are good looking AND get driven.

Sorry chaps, I love all things Lancia with a passion and some things Italian but I'm old and fiercly patriotioc (not so popular these days) and want to see Hamilton win the championship.

I'm with Brian on modern Ferrari road cars the pre 1980 models are much more my cup of tea.

Oh, and that's speaking from experience. Check this auction entry out, http://www.anamera.com/en/detail/car/30077/index.html?no_cache=1&ret=202 Owned one for 5 years in the early eighties and if I had to settle for just one of all the cars I've owned it would be a close run thing between it and Modestine. Nothing quite like a 250 V12 - tearing calico best describes it.

I'm just about to turn 42, so I don't know whether that makes me young or old (I guess it depends from which end of the telescope you are viewing Undecided) but on all things sport, at least, I am also instinctively patriotic, and I'd like Hamilton to win too.  Given his performances in the rain, I also think he is the best driver in the field, notwithstanding he has a decent (if arguably not the best) car.

Perhaps there should be some kind of interlock to stop the car moving until the fuel hose is completely released, F1 has been very lucky so far that the incidents of going off with the fuel pipe still attached, have turned into a major fire or a disaster.

What's the betting that Ferrari throw away the traffic lights and go back to the lollipop Embarrassed

Funny you should say that Brian.  I read today on teletext that Ferrari are abandoning the pit lights and are reverting to the traditional lollipop for the race this weekend!
