Well Honda didn't get either car out of the first session...in the wet. I was expecting them to do better with wet conditions.

Even in the wet Monza is a power circuit.

I suppose we should be careful what we pray for. My prediction... I hate to do it... Honda will place last.
In the upcoming races I think they will do a little better but still we need this season to end sooner than later.

Congrats to Vettel though. I feel this is Heikki's race to win. He will be the bread winner for Mac this time around. Lewis has to be careful of Kimi because we know he has little lose. With just two points LH needs a miracle on a track that is virtually impossible to pass on. Maybe they will go for a 1 stop strategy and hope... I personally think they should take a chance and run light. Let LH do what he does best, race.

Back to Honda, well, what to say. Wet or dry they seem dismal so maybe the best thing is a double retirement, dunno. Its not like the track can be used as a test bed or anything of the sort. This is a useless endeavor for them.

One piece of good news- If it rains tommorow, Honda can attack Hamilton as he only has no spare sets of full wet tyres, he used them all in Qually 1, infact most of the teams have hardly any fully wet tyres left except Honda

BMW must be kicking themselves for not putting Vettle in a permanent racing seat before red bull took him lol.

btw, what happened to kimi? i know hamilton was having some problems but couldn't find anything on kimi.. massa has a really big chance to get ahead of hamilton here.

I think the track conditions got worse as Q2 went on. The last few runs from some of the big names were way off of the pace.
