Webber qualifies well AGAIN , but will be out by Lap 10 .

Webber actually did very well, out doing the BMWs is no mean feat, especially since they've been handling nicely around the Principality. Be interesting to know their fuel load though, if they've gone heavy to maximise their pit window in case of (the expected) rain, we could see a rather interesting podium.

What time's the race on over their Yiktin? I'd estimate late night/early morning-ish. Do you watch it live? Or get it on taped delay?

Live when able . Sorry for the late reply, I have just awakened and turned on the TV . Webber did quite well last year @ same course too .

Yeah he might do well, his popularity in the UK has probably fallen for getting in Lewis Hamilton's way.

I did think that Raikkonen's choice of parking space for his sick Ferrari was ironic, if Massa had hit him I think it would have been kharmic justice for last year.

I recently saw an episode of Top Gear in which Messer Webber was a guest. They handed him a T-Shirt that procclaimed *I am the Stigg* .

He represents himself well in the public eye but hear she can be QUITE the Prima Donna behind closed doors....... maybe if we could secure him a more consitent car he would shine, Alas I fear this will never happen ...

Cest' La'Vie ....

Yeah, most of the upper slots and manufacters' teams are booked up with drives, McLaren and Ferrari won't be changing their line-up in the next few years, BMW look to be sticking with their combination as well. There'll be a space at Honda when Barrichello retires, but Honda's form moves between the extremes. The nearest thing there'll be to open places will be Prodrive, but the rumour mill states that both the McLaren testers are going there.

Webber seems to be moving towards the end of his top flight career, and hasn't really done much.
