    Got a lucky dice? no idea who will win.
    I'd actually like to see more of Alonso making those hard arsed overtaking moves, take the championship, Ferrari to give Massa the boot and Mark to switch camps and move to Maranello for the remainder of his F1 career. Given the outcome of the season thus far.. could happen.

    Got a feeling Webber may surprise here - great record overall at the track, and while Hamilton and Button should figure very prominently, I just have a feeling Webber may come up with the goods.

    1 Webber
    2 Hamilton
    3 Vettel

    Grosjean and Kimi have both been showing glimmers of excellence. Could be the race where they finally get up. Though Schumi has won there 3 times and is in the midst of contract negotiations, so maybe it's his time to shine?

    It was a bastard of a session, Alonso didn't even set a time. It's no indicator of pace imo.

    Just read that. I loved the comment that he "was in talks with Ferrari, but knows everybody's shoe size at RBR". I lol'd.

    Hey Guys,

    Been looking around this forum and there doesn't seem to be anything on the 213 grand prix yet. Probably to early.

    I moved to Melbourne Australia from the UK 6 motnhs ago and used to watch the grand prix live back in the UK. I had a select ticket provider in the UK. However, looking forward I wanted to knwo if anyone has actually used this company for the grand prix melbourne?

    I haven't personally used them before. I have also inquired with a company called Foxtix. They look ok but cost a little more for the package I want.

    Good to get some feedback.
