conchita, remember what happened last year? I think Hamilton was 13 points clear with 2 races to go and that all changed, so don't jump to conclusions!!!
last year the rivals were Alonso and Raikkonen, this year the rival is Massa. It's like Manchester United trying to win last year against Arsenal and Liverpool and this year the rival is Pompey. it's better to admit defeat, Shanghai is a very easy track, last year Hamilton won in Fuji-rain and Interlagos is quite difficult.
if your parents went to 1 race and Alonso won, tell them to go all races!!  :rofl_2:

Very true!!! I'm hoping to get the chance to go to Donnington Park when the British GP gets moved to there, as I've been there for Renault days so it'd be a good experience.

what are the Renault days?? It's sad Silverstone will not remain in the claendar, first and second section of the track are amazing!! Donnington is ok! but the last and new section it's a parking lot!!! I think GBR deserves a new race track for F1!

Once a year they have a day at Donnington Park where there are different races and there are displays, e.g we went one year and saw the Renault F1 car, and there was a feature where you could join in a wheel changing challenge to change the wheels of a Renault as fast as you could. This year it was in Silverstone though.

Some tough questions they are conchita! My parents come back tomorrow and will get here Wed morning my time. We did see some older Renault cars but it was a while back now. It was very good watching the tyre changes. I spoke to them as often as I could, they told us all about what had happened and they'd got Kangaroo TV to watch it whilst there, look it up on Google! I had to fill them in on ITV though, the pit walk Martin Brundell is classic!!! Bernie Ecclestone said he could talk to the Prime Minister of Singapore so he shoved Martin right into his path and you could tell talking to the PrimeMinister was the last thing he wanted to be doing! And he was pulled over by the boss of SingTel who asked him what he thought of their logo in the dark and he replied "Well it looks much the same as it does in the day!" Very funny stuff. My favourite place in Singapore is probably one of the funniest too, the Jurong Water Park, I was just a kid and I loved it!!! And the zoo and Bird Park hold some good memories too! A great holiday destination.

The Canadian Grand Prix has been dropped from the 2009 Formula One calendar with the season remaining at 18 races.

The International Automobile Federation issued a revised calendar with Turkey moving from August to June to allow a summer break for the teams.

There will be no North American round after the US Grand Prix at Indianapolis was dropped this year.

I agree! it's terrible, no Indy, no Montreal, no new urban f1 circuit in USA, I expect Montreal to fight against the rule and try to save the race as they did 3-4 years ago.
Montreal was one of my favorites circuits, mur de quebec, long straights, famous hairpin, nice location - ile notre dame-. legendary track, more than 25 races there.
what do you think of the new area-market?? next year new gp in abu dhabi (uae) + bahrein-sakhir circuit (and moto gp in qatar-losail circuit).

I agree with all of that with what you say about Montreal and North America in general. Such a huge area without a GP is a very strange move. What you say about the new area F1 is very much expanded into of the Middle East and Asia. Well those places are clearly in because of the money aspect. Not only can they pay huge amounts of money to the F1 Governing body and get huge sponsors involved- they can also afford the best and most upto date circuits and facilities. Thats for sure why F1 is getting into the areas like UAE, Bahrain, China, Singapore. Its brilliant to have it such a worldwide sport and going to all these places but I just hope we don't see too many included and the traditional places and circuits being dropped.

the only circuit I like in Asia is the one you didnt mention!
The Jungle of Sepang, the original new one of the current new crap. -including Valencia-
I dislike Shanghai layout, hate Bahrein layout, both boring -long straights and slow corners to make it easy to overtake, like karting tracks, but not originality in layouts, interesting corners. Singapore was special, but it was mega slow with a thousand corners, the great urban circuit in Asia is Macau -legendary guia circuit with incredibly funny layout but too risky for f1 cars. Fuji no comment, you can not imagine how much I miss the big wheel of the amusement park in Suzuka. Albert Park race is in trouble.

Hamilton takes Pole Position in Japan

Lewis Hamilton boosted his chances of extending his world championship lead at Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix by taking pole position in Fuji.

The McLaren driver produced a late flying lap of one minute 18.404 seconds to claim his sixth pole of the season.

But Ferrari rival Felipe Massa, who trails Hamilton by seven points in the title race, endured a disastrous qualifying finishing back in fifth.

Kimi Raikkonen was second for Ferrari ahead of McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen.

Also starting ahead of Massa on the grid is Fernando Alonso, a surprise winner for Renault last time out in Singapore, as he continued his run of good form to qualify in fourth.

BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica posted the sixth fastest time ahead of Toyota duo Jarno Trulli and Timo Glock. The Toro Rossos of Sebastian Vettel and Sebastien Bourdais rounded out the top 10.

"I'm very happy," said Hamilton, who is three races away from a maiden world title. "The team have done a phenomenal job.

"It was pretty straightforward. The last lap I put all the sectors together and I was able to bring it home.

"We will push forward with the strategy on Sunday. It's going to be a tough race because Kimi is right there but we will take as many points as we can."

McLaren team boss Ron Dennis described Hamilton's 12th career pole as the "best of his life" adding it came at a "critical time".

With both the drivers' and constructors' titles at stake, the Woking-based team are determined to adopt a cautious approach to the title run-in especially after the calamitous close to the 2007 season.

After claiming victory at last year's Japanese Grand Prix, Hamilton held a 12-point lead in the title race only to surrender the title to Raikkonen, who at that stage was 17 points adrift.

When asked if he would allow Hamilton to race for victory in Fuji, Dennis said: "We don't want to pass over any victories that might come our way, but who knows?"

Diasterous start for Hamilton! Poor getaway left him vulnverable at the first corner, which saw him slip to 6th, behind Massa but ahead of Raikkonen, but then a couple of laps later he tries to pass Massa does so but Massa comes back at him and clips the side of Hamilton's car which sees him spin and at the back of the field in 18th place, with 2 drivers already out.

Drive through penalty for Hamilton for forcing Raikkonen off the track on the 1st corner.
Drive through penalty for Massa for forcing Hamilton off the track on 9th/10th corners on lap 2/3.

Massa was 6th and slips down a bit now, whereas Hamilton is still at the back and it seems almost certain he won't pick up any points at all this week!
