Another "Ferrari" track and hopefully another repeat of France. And when I say a repeat I don't only mean Ferraris finishing 1 and 2 but also Lewis Hamilton getting no points as well. :biglaugh:

Well it isn't anything personal against Hamilton. It is just that he drives for the wrong team. And right now he is the only one that can screw Ferrari over so this why I want him to do poorly. Otherwise Lewis Hamilton is one cute good looking guy. :blush:

I'll always say if Lewis moved to Ferrari I'd love to support him. But he dosen't, he drives for the anti-christ. So I can't support him either.

Yeah, just if you wanna talk like that about Mclaren or Hamilton, there is plenty of other threads on this forum to cater to your needs. Let's keep this GP based... predictions yes but slagging not.

I personally recommend my own thread "Big Hamilton feeling the heat of F1 fight" if you wanna bash or praise him.
And the Mclaren FIA thread is perfect for Ferrari V Mclaren rumblings :D

Anyways i'll stop being a bit of a d**k.
I'm going yeah, it is gonna be great.

What do people wanna see happen at the GP?
Any aims and targets for the weekend?

I want to see Williams do well, i can see either Mclaren or Ferrari walking away with the race though with BMW nipping at their heels.
After that it depends on how is good on the day Renualt will be in the points but after that its a bit of a lottery really

McLaren will do better at Silverstone than they did last year. Maybe another Lewis pole or can Heikki disrupt the British party
