    Fast straights, slow corners, only one fast corner that needs downforce. Which car is it good for? --> McLaren

    Bad news for Brawn though: (and good news for Red Bull)

    I just hope the rivals of Button get closer to him! Funny that as soon as he called himself the best driver of all time, suddenly everybody started to beat him LOL.

    Beat me to it. Funny, I was thinking the same thing, but I think the .357 suits it better.

    Well, I spect more surprises at Monza... the non test law will help. It is the first real "fastandnondownforce" circuit of the seasson.

    I suspect Ferrari will have some problems at Monza. For the past few seasons they've been struggling to get the car to work properly over the kerbs. They can't be as aggressive over the kerbs as for example McLaren has been able to. So I think Kimi won't be able to repeat his Spa performance. I think though that the KERS will be a great help at the start and Ferrari could have a strong points race.

    I think the Red Bulls and Brawns are going to come back at Monza.

    Well technically, even at the tender age of 16, he could have. But I suspect he is using the word drive in a loose form, being that he will be driven rather than he will drive. Unless he's starting out today and intends to use a 3 wood and follow his balls all the way to Italy. :p
