I'd probably say yes, its a very close one and both have great cases for that title- but I'd just give the nod slighly to Monaco.

I know about Monaco, but not Monza. I'd guess that means Monoco's more well known. When a stumble bum like me knows about it, it's famous.

In a very tight final qualifying session, Massa qualifies first on a circuit he doesn't like, funny how that works. Joining on the front row is Raikonnen followed by Hamilton to round of the top 3. The three of them all qualified within 5 hundredths of a second of one another.

With that qualifying on this circuit then the smart money is on a Ferreri win, and quite possibly even a 1-2 for them.

Yeha that wouldn't surprise me to see that happen tomorrow. You may well get that one right as he'll probably over try to hold onto the front 2.

last year he was very close at least 4 times! he risked too much! this year he is under pressure starting 3rd and in Monaco it's difficult to overtake and frustation-errors are normal.

Yeah I remember that last year- he really did put too much risk into it last year and I hope he doesn't do the same again this year as it won't come off for a 2nd straight year around the streets. The circuit will get the better of him this time if he puts it beyond the limit again.

The pressure is really starting to get to Hamilton. He was fine at the start of his career but now the expectations have rised, it's getting worse. And now that he's only in third, he's not a happy bunny, he needs to learn that he has to ignore the press if that's the problem, and start realising you can't win everything. When he does this, he will become a much better driver.

Hamilton had got upto 2nd at the start of the race over Raikkonen. BUT as Conchita predicted :applause: He's just crashed into one of the barriers, not bad enough though to be out of the race but he's had to change his tyre and lost a lot of time but luckily for him has only slipped down to around 5th place.

Yeah, he had a good start, especially as this is one of the hardes tracks to overtake on, but messed it up. What are the odds that he'll blame someone else?

Yeah he'll probably make out the driver behind just squeezed him a little too far wide at that point  :whistle:

Yeah, he's had a good comeback and used pitstops to his advantage, the rain could cause some challenging circumstances though.

Rain expected in around 2 minutes in Monaco- that could really spice it up! Fair play though to Hamilton for coming back so well after his early incident.

What do you think of my earlier post you guys? About Hamilton feeling the pressure and getting stressed and being a sore loser too easily?
