Should be a good race this one, Canada has a tendency to spring surprises on folk - Mansell's daft retirement in 1991, Alesi's only win in 1995 or Villeneuve into the wall in 1997(?). It's a notorious car breaker as well as Frentzen can testify after his excursion into the barriers following a late race brake failure in 1999.

A new surface for this year could help or hinder, the track is used so rarely that the old surface took a long time to come up to speed, the new surface however is a step into the unknown for teams and tyre manufacturers alike. Couple that to a layout which, as Flibster's map shows, has 6 heavy braking areas and we could see tyres being pushed to, and likely beyond, their limits.

So who's going to be there at the end? Certainly the usual suspects, McLaren wil undoubtably have learned from the Nurburgring so expect them to look to manage tyres. Renault will be quick if they get a good setup, lots of slow corners to use the torque of the narrow angle V10. Williams are a bit of an unknown quantity this weekend I think, there's a lot of friction between the team and BMW at the moment but if they can put that to one side and get on with things then look at them to maintain the momentum of the last few races. Ferrari, I think, could be the dark horse here, MS is always strong here so it's going to come down to tyres and possibly waiting until others throw the race away rather than outright pace.

Also - thunderstorms are predicted over the whole weekend - which unless the car is worse than we thought, puts Ferrari solidly in the frame for a decent result.

Renault should be able to do well - with the torque and weight of that engine pushing the rear end onto the track it should be able to squirt away from those slow corner very well. However - Renault are using their engines for the second race on a notorious car breaker.

The Champions wall will hopefully clame some victims as well this year for a bit of extra excitement *especially if you've placed bets on who'll hit it first. ;)*

McLaren are going to find it hard - Raikkonen's going out to qualifying 10th..big disadvantage - though it could have been a lot worse.
Also they have apparently had a massive engine failure *apparently one of the worst they've ever had..* while doing straight line speed testing - there are rumors that it was a 2006 V8 unit they were running in the car. That would surprise me though - Would have thought they were doing a shakedown for the Grand Prix instead.

The new surface is a jump into the unknown - no doubt they'll be speaking to some of the support race guys who go out before them. Hopefully they've used a softer tarmac to get more grip from it.

As for Williams - I don't think that they're going to be with BMW for much longer. Could you work with BMW after they've said all that? Also Williams have started fighting back. My guess - Would be surprised to see them running Toyota units in the near future.

Toyota - Not so much surprise of the year *thats Red Bull* but it's nie to see them doing so well. R.Schumacher is proving himself to be a tit yet again, but Trulli is driving superbly. Car seems reliable as well - the engine is showing superb reliability which is good - also rumoured to be the most powerfull engine in the pit lane.

Oh..ITV - show us the qualifying live you total ********!!!

This is a prime opportunity to use ITV2 for the live qualifying and then have a rerun on ITV1 later but no, what do we get on ITV2? A repeat of last week's who wants to punch Chris Tarrant.....

I used to wonder if ITV actually had a clue, it's been clear they don't for a while now.

Can you imagine what would happen if they treated the World Cup or some other crappy football event like this?

There would be so much crap over it...

F1 - one of the worlds biggest spectator sports? Sod all. :(

That one's been on the cards for a while but it will depend on a few of things.

1) If MS decides to retire I don't see Ferrari wanting 2 new drivers in one go

2) His Ferrari contract runs until the end of next year so some cash is going to have to change hands

3) Jenson going to Williams, it's a fair assumption that he'll not get the 75% of the leaders tally by the finish of the Turkish GP so he'll be free to go. There is another rumour that says Williams are contractually bound to take him and give him a race seat.

If all of those go the right (for BAR) way then RB is just the kind of guy that Honda want in the BAR if they're to make a serious push for honours in the next few seasons.

There was an article on the autosport web site early in the season which speculated about moves for next season, mainly it was very tongue in cheek but it's getting scarily close to reality. I've got the text in an email, gimme a minute and I'll whack it on to some webspace.

Quick question for you all - do you want me to hide the qualifying results until Qualifying is shown on TV.

Kind of as I used to do the qualifying 2 results?

I will be doing the practice times soon - just been busy playing GTA:SA ;)
