Default GP San Marino Picks

This is a sad weekend, and I am reluctant to make any picks for this race, but, here goes:

1. MS
2. RB
3. Alonso
4. JPM
5. Raikkonen
6. Trulli
7. Sato
8. Webber

For some reason, I am not allowed to post attachments. I have several Senna pics that I'll post if I can figure it out.

RIP Ayrton, you are still my hero

Other then the red cars I have to go with absolutely no clue. I always pull for Monto, Webber, Alonso and Button. Screw it, anybody but MS, even Barichello if he wins it fair.

You're right...a sad weekend. And a wild card I think as far as the race. It always mixes up a little when they get back to Europe. As a Williams fan, I'm gonna go against the red and pick a Williams win, with Schumacher splitting the two Williams. I can hope...

Imola is cooler than usual, with a chance for rain. Both situations, unless it's some dinky drizzle, favor the Bridgestones. With that in mind:

1. MS (best driver, best car, best team)
2. JB (a surprising pick, but I think he's brimming with confidence right now)
3. RB (he'll find some way to mess up...)
4. JPM (will be fast, but not quite there yet)
5. FA (payback time, and he will be on form)
6. TS (Sato is maturing, and coming along)
7. JT (Trulli will benefit from the Renault's extra power)
8. DC (pit strategy)

It's just so difficult to argue against the red cars, until the European weather heats up, and Michelin has a chance. But even then, you have to wonder. Malaysia was a pretty compelling argument

How will Fisi benfit from the Renault's extra power? He drives for Sauber.

hmmm.... Here's what I'd love to see...

1) Kimi (after all the "kablamo's", it'd be great to see him win here)
2) JPM (a good fight between him and Kimi till the end)
3) JB (another podium would be )

but I think it'll end up more like this.

1) MS (sold his soul to the devil and nobody will win a WDC or a WCC until he retires)
2) RB (ever MS's bitch. will be leading but asked to move over for MS or "develop a small understeer problem" letting MS by)
3) doesn't matter after 1&2. 2004 is looking like 2002 all over again. Just what the sport doesn't need...

Here are my picks:

1. MS - Based on the season so far and that he won last year with inferior tires, its hard to not pick him
2. RB - the red guys are really just too fast so far for the season
3. FA - he'll get his qualifying demons worked out for this race and be the best of the rest, but not really close to the Ferrari's
4. JPM - a mental lapse will cause him to lose 3rd to FA
5. MW - won't be fast enough to catch FA or JPM and will weave back and forth enough to not let anyone else past him
6. JB - the podium streak ends of JB, but he still gets points
7. KR - will finally finsih a race, but the car will be so de-tuned that he won't really be competitive, 50+ seconds off of the Ferrari's
8. RS - he'll just show up and put in a lackluster performance to further hurt his value for next year.

Like the Bahrain race, I think the Ferrari's will run away from the start, but there will be some good racing behind them for spots 3-8.

Post Weather Forecast As Of Thursday Evening

Yahoo / Weather dot com forecast Rain in the morning on race-day... high of ~58F... pretty cold and wet!

No rain on Friday or Saturday... but highs in the low 60's... Looks like Bridgestone / Ferrari weather.

There's a shock...

Kimi starts from the back...not sure what exactly happened to him though.

And the real shocker, and BAR on pole. wow...could be a good race if Button can stay out ahead

Jenson Button is making me look like something of a sage, here. M. Schumacher's Ferrari was definitely faster, as evidenced by the hose-off and stunning recovery for P2. But that BAR is rocking and rolling, no question.

I just hope that BAR isn't on some wacky fuel strategy. That's a big gap between he and Sato, grid-wise. Usually, teammates, unless somebody really corked up their lap, are within a couple of tenths, based on a one-lap fuel strategy difference.

Kimi had to change an engine, and Fisichella had gearbox woes.

Tomorrow's race is going to be verrry interesting. Both Ferraris are on the dirty side of the track, and have Alonso behind them, he of the amazing "clutch control" starts.

Will Button tense up like Webber did from the front row? Will the dirty line matter? Will M. Schumacher simply pass Button and drive away? What the hell is wrong with Kimi Raikkonen?

Stay tuned for the answers to these and other questions, at the 2004 San Marino Grand Prix.

Button on the Pole!

We need another trading paint on Speed. Do it with Button and his BAR Honda and Solberg and his WRC Impreza at Like Sliverstone. Heck, David Richards could set it all up.

i backed Button for a win at the start of the season and its looking very much on the cards to come soon. The speed is genuine and even without Michael cocking up one corner i still think Jenson had pole, just, his last sector time was awesome.

Michelin are running their softer tyres for this race for the first time this year, so i think the Bridgestone advantage will not be present in this race.

JPM is going to hound Michael hard too, as i feel they ran with more fuel so JPM's speed is genuine too, which is what Jenson needs to help take some presure off.

Button is experienced enough now not to crack under presure, he is almost identical on race starts to the number Mansell had before his first win too, at 70 compared to Nigels 72 and the car was working brilliantly on the kebs and bad bumps at Imola, which is going to help his tyres survive too. So i am backing Jenson for a win.

With regards to Senna, i am going to go along with Barichello and think of the amazing things he did and not the tragedy that happened 10 years ago. Thats the best way to remember someone special IMHO.

My predictions are

JB
JPM
MS
FA
RB
RS

It's also a bit of a downer to see them run Tamburello with that chicane thrown in there, especially after watching all of the 93,94 recaps lately. That was a great old highspeed sweep!

FCTi
-would love to see Rubens win, that would be quite an emotional podium

Kevin - Nice pick as Jenson has grabbed his first pole! He is brimming with confidence, even if his car may not be brimming with fuel.

It will be interesting to see their race pace, and when JB, Micheal, and Juan Pablo all make their first stops. As you mentioned, Takuma qual'd 7th, which is about where I expected BAR's race pace to be.

And let's not forget that Renault also stepped it up for this race, with more hp, and a better aero. Fernando and Jarno's race pace has been very good so far in the 1st three fly-aways. That is why I picked Renault to finish behind the williams, and in front of BAR.

Michelin brought 3 dry compounds, and they said that all 3 choices will be in play amongst their 6 teams on race day. Renault can probably run the softest compound, but others may pay a price. If we see cars falling drastically off pace late in their stints, we'll know who went too agressive on tire choice. Can't wait to see if Michelin can finally meet the challenge on race day.

SPOILER for those who have not yet watched:

.
.
.
.
With all of those 2nd tier guys running very closely (JPM, Ralf, Alonso, Rubens, Jarno and Sato) there would have been some fantastic racing (on the track, not in the pits) if there were at least 1 decent passing corner.

Too bad.

Seems that over a race Schumi IS still that much better than everyone else. Rubens seemed to show us today that the car is not the star this year.

That's 4 consecutive wins for Schumacher. The record for consecutive wins in a season is 5 held by Mansell (1992), Clark (1965) and Brabham (1960).
