Massa is the King of this circuit. He has had 3 pole positions in a row which is a 75% success rate.

Räikkönen didn't do as well as Massa, but Kimi may have more fuel. Heikki Kovalainen qualified second and this shows he did not suffer from the crash he had in Spain. Hamilton got third and he was on the primes, which [B]should[/B] be about 0.3s slower than the options, but he was only 0.115s slower. He did however admit during the post-quali press conference that he shouldn't have used the primes during Q3. Kimi is in fourth and he will be one to watch out for during the start tomorrow.<br>

Kubica did well, but Webber also did well, as he was just slightly slower than Kubica and Alonso was just slightly slower than Webber. Alonso said he could have gone faster.

Trulli beat Heidfeld, which is surprising, but Heidfeld seemed to struggle a lot, and Coulthard just settled for 10th, it is suspected that he is carrying a lot of fuel.

Anyway, will Kovy be able to win this race? Does Kimi have something up his sleeve? Will Massa just dominate as he has done for a few years now? Remember, this time, we are 3 months earlier in Turkey and the weather is unusually cold for this time of year which means that the tyre compounds Bridgestone have brought aren't ideal for this weather. Also, it could be rain and if that happens, everything gets tossed out the window! Let's hope for rain, eh? Always fun to see the cars slide around and without TC, it will be hilarious, mark my words. (Excepting if there are any serious accidents, which is [B]never[/B] fun.)

Anyway, I am rooting for Alonso and hope to see him at least getting some points. :)
