British GP is in a couple of days, Mclaren showing some early pace after Friday practice, so they could be quite a force this weekend. If Schumi and others don't get stuck behind another 'Trulli train' for the first 20 laps or so, we could see some exciting racing up front.

At the end of Sat. practice 2, Alonso heads the table, Montoya 0.051s behind, and Trulli third, 0.372s behind Alonso. Schumacher was seventh. Raikkonen stopped midway through a lap early in the session.

I remember reading a horscope of the drivers and their chances earlier in the year. They were all completely laughable as you would expect, but the one that really stuck out was Kimi's; it basicaly said his greatest asset was that he had luck on his side! Must have been comenting on the driver's love life, 'cause Kimi has none (luck that is) on track.

Confirmed Kimi will require an engine change. 10 position grid penalty for the second race in succession. Fanfuckintastic. :banghead:

At the end of qualifying, the top three:
1st Fernando Alonso 1:19.905
2nd Jenson Button 1:20.207
3rd JP Montoya 1:20.382

Kimi Raikkonen set the second fastest time, but will drop to 12th after an engine swap.
Schumi's lap started out great, but ended up only 8th after a disappointing last two sectors. Looks set to be a real interesting race.

Yeah Kimi is one better than France. Wonder if he can finish one better too? At least Montoya is ahead of Trulli so he may have a chance of keeping Alonso honest. Overtaking is hopefully not as difficult at Silverstone but with the new rules who knows? Schumacher Sr was actually tenth fastest but will be promoted to 9th thanks to Kimi's Merc.

If I were Kimi I'd be taking a long look into Norbert's eyes. I can't believe how little luck he has.

Montoya should win this one, I think he's on fewer stops than Alonso.

Sato's BAR stalls and he misses the start.
Good starts from the Macs, Montoya into the lead and Kimi up to 8th already.

RallyRaider

Safety car out. To clear Sato's BAR? If so why didn't they just delay the start? Oh that's right TV schedules. :rolleyes:

Restart. Kimi was 0.2 seconds behind Michael Schumacher on the last lap!

Alonso in second appears to be quicker than Montoya. Trulli has MS and Kimi bottled up, they also look faster but can't find a way through.

Trulli is holding up Raikkonen and Schumacher, good to see some things never cange.

RallyRaider
07-10-2005, 07:15 AM
Yup, he is costing Kimi two seconds a lap compared to Montoya.

Jimster

Klien is making a stop, doesn't look like a routine stop either.

Jimster

Both Jordans out in the space of just a lap.

Ho humm. We have a procession. Only pitstops and breakages can change the order.

RallyRaider
07-10-2005, 07:25 AM
Getting close to the 15th lap, any sign of three stoppers?

ales
07-10-2005, 07:25 AM
I think Alonso is going to try something soon. Kimi's really trying to get by Schumi.

Alonso has set the fastest lap.

Gotta hand it to Max, he has really improved the spectical of Monaco. All the tracks are virtually impossible to overtake on now, so Monaco seems less frustrating in comparison.

Phil, are you going to continue Max bashing in this thread too?

Button pits and comes out just behind Kimi/Schumi. Trulli finally pits

Jimster
07-10-2005, 07:33 AM
Was Trulli just in?

Only if it is appropriate. But when is it not appropriate? :lol:

IT's Montoya.

Montoya pits and leaves Alonso go by the backmarkers. Good timing by Montoya

Nice pass from JV on DC.

Very long stop for Alonso ... and Montoya just beats him out of the pits

Jimster
07-10-2005, 07:37 AM
Alons's in, Montoya got him on the exit.

Get that damn red thing out of Kimi's way!

Jimster

Schumacher's coming in.

RallyRaider

Finally!

RallyRaider
07-10-2005, 07:39 AM
But now Alonso is in the way.

07-10-2005, 07:39 AM
Kimi now third right behind the two leaders. Is Kimi on a 1-stopper perhaps?

Jimster
07-10-2005, 07:39 AM
Fisi's in as well. Now Alonso and Alonso are holding him up.

07-10-2005, 07:40 AM
Kimi by Alonso!

Kimi pits now

Did somebody just make a pass? :D
But pits right away.

Jimster
07-10-2005, 07:42 AM
Kimi's emerges ahead of MS. Fisi jumped Button.

RallyRaider

Kimi is the fastest man on track at the moment. But he has a lot of ground to make up.

RallyRaider
07-10-2005, 07:57 AM
Fastest lap of the race from Kimi. He will be on Button's tail very soon. Less that 20 seconds to the leader.

ales
07-10-2005, 08:01 AM
Montoya lays down the fastest lap of the race as Kimi's less than a second behind Button

RallyRaider
07-10-2005, 08:01 AM
Kimi has Button, can he make a move like he did on Alonso?

RallyRaider
07-10-2005, 08:02 AM
Monty is maintaining a good lead over Alonso. The race is his for the taking. :)

RallyRaider

Button pits releasing Kimi.

Followed by Montoya from the lead.

What the hell is Trulli doing?

Here is the business end of the race right now.

Kimi's coming into pit by the looks.

RallyRaider
07-10-2005, 08:08 AM
Short middle stint from Kimi. Fourth will be his result.

Jimster
07-10-2005, 08:08 AM
Fisi's fucking stalled it AGAIN.
