2010 Belgian Grand Prix (August 27-29)

The King is dead, long live?

To make a long story short, F1 arrives at Spa once more and, besides the huge WDC and WCC battles, there is also the vacant throne. King Kimi is gone.

Who will become the next King?

I voted for Newey, but Hamilton stands an outside chance if McLaren hit the sweetspot with their EBD MP4-25.

Alonso, who knows? He will have the most help form the pit box and on the track, if needed.

It was wet and damp all day long.
I find it hard to draw any serious conclusions, except that Alonso seems fine.

Alonso looks pretty good after practice but you never know, those Red Bulls always seem to find several spots between practice and qualy. Anyone know if rain is in the forecast for qualifying?

the whether is always constant in Spa and can best be described as changeable, with some very local differences.

Invariably variable weather, whether localised or everywhere.

23 24 Timo Glock Virgin-Cosworth 1:51.669 5.563 10
24 20 Sakon Yamamoto HRT-Cosworth 1:52.001 5.895 13

Looks like Hamilton is in good shape as well.
Good to see both Saubers up there, as well as Hulkenberg. Not his fan, but it was about time he figured how to drive that Williams.
Mercedes should probably give up on 2010, if they didn't already.

im really surprised that Massa hasnt been quicker than Alonso except maybe once or twice this season, Although he's been at ferrari much longer and should know how the car works better, and yet he wants equal treatment with more than 60 % of the season gone.

Im hoping for a battle between Alonso and Hamilton.
