1) Can Hamilton get his 4th pole and 3rd win on this track, this weekend? Well, I'd say no. Even last year was a bit of a lucky hit.
2) Who'll be on the race podium? Alonso, Massa, Hamilton ( prefferably in that order from 1-3 )
3) Will the tyres play out like they did last year? Pirellis are kinda unpredictable. Should be a hoot.
4) Will we still see Red Bull in the front or will this be a track less suited to their car? Can Ferrari outpace them? Ferrari...please make an effort. Make the bull rage.
5) What do you think about the FIA announcing 2 DRS zones at this track? This I'll answer with a photograph.

Unless he goes mad like in Monaco, it's a possibility.

2) Who'll be on the race podium?

Three drivers and a representative of the winning team.

3) Will the tyres play out like they did last year?

Some will literally drive their tires off the cliff and lose the race in the process. Who? No idea.

4) Will we still see Red Bull in the front or will this be a track less suited to their car? Can Ferrari outpace them?

Unless the team secretly installs an afterburner in Alonso's car, no.

5) What do you think about the FIA announcing 2 DRS zones at this track?

Really don't care, Le Mans is the bigger race this weekend.

Very possible, im feeling it as i wanna see him push his car to the pits again!
2) Who'll be on the race podium?
Ham, Vet and one of either of thier teamates
3) Will the tyres play out like they did last year?
Nope, its going to be completely different
4) Will we still see Red Bull in the front or will this be a track less suited to their car? Can Ferrari outpace them?
i see one RBR on the front row but thats it
5) What do you think about the FIA announcing 2 DRS zones at this track?
i think the whole track should be open to DRS no matter where they go (except like what they did in Monaco for safety)

1. Of course not.
2. RedBulls + Ferrari
3. Yes
4. Close but nothing dramatic. RB comfortably in the lead.
5. meh, DRS makes the race epic, as long as the overtakes aren't too artificial.

Do not think so - Red Bulls I am afraid.

2) Who'll be on the race podium?

Webber, Vettel and Hamilton.

3) Will the tyres play out like they did last year?

No idea, this is the area where an upset could occur.

4) Will we still see Red Bull in the front or will this be a track less suited to their car? Can Ferrari outpace them?

Prancing Horse - Not without a lot of wind tunnel work or a whole new aero package.

5) What do you think about the FIA announcing 2 DRS zones at this track?

The track can take that - yes OK.

Red Bull and Mclaren lead the way in EBDs...with Ferrari and Renault on their tails. If anything only the gaps bewteen cars would shrink..

Blown diffusers aren't illegal, its the engine maps that put fuel and push air when off throttle that they might ban. Haven't heard the official word on it though.

I'm looking forward to this race. I'm guessing that Vettel will just run away with it again, but I'm hoping for a surprise.

Yes, I think so.

2) Who'll be on the race podium?

Vettel, Hamilton, Webber but no idea which order.

3) Will the tyres play out like they did last year?

No.

4) Will we still see Red Bull in the front or will this be a track less suited to their car? Can Ferrari outpace them?

Absolutely no way for Ferrari to outpace them, but I think the McLarens will give them a hard time.

5) What do you think about the FIA announcing 2 DRS zones at this track?

I think it's a good decision, I hope it doesn't make overtaking too easy like we saw in Turkey.

The engine maps will stay untill atleast the British GP. There'll be a meeting sometime this summer where it will be discussed.

1.Ham,2.Ros,3.Vet

3) Will the tyres play out like they did last year?

Yep.

4) Will we still see Red Bull in the front or will this be a track less suited to their car? Can Ferrari outpace them?

RB fastest then Mac and Ferrari.


5) What do you think about the FIA announcing 2 DRS zones at this track?
