Its interesting, at the 'ring the Michelins delivered on Saturday and failed, along with Sir Frank's strategy, on Sunday. What will happen at Silverstone? For mine, Michael won't make the same mistakes again and Williams won't be as dominant. My intuition rarely makes up for my lack of good judgment, but I still see a Ferrari front row.

Juan Pablo has shown at the last three real races that he is very quick. He'll be quick here too, but I believe that Schumacher (the racer, not the other one) will, and Barrichello might, be quicker. I also believe that the McLaren's are working their way back from the wilderness, both Kimi and David will be trying to build on their recent performances and we may see a McLaren up near the pointy end again. If so, it will be Kimi, who, while not as experienced as David, is prepared to push harder.

As far as the 'other' championships are concerned it is almost all over bar the shouting but in the real races it is still wide open. Juan Pablo is breathing down Michael's neck in the quali-points table (latest standings) and with spoiling actions from their team-mates and the two McLarens it will be a long time before this is decided.

Fisichella, Villeneuve and Irvine failed in Europe. Fisichella won't fail here. Villeneuve is unpredictable and Eddie is just plain hopeless. Look for both of them to be in the running for an Also Ran to add to the one's they already hold.

Yoong will put in another mighty effort to win the last spot, and he might even get further up the grid, as long as someone else gets their times disallowed. Someone needs to explain to him that 22nd doesn't mean that it took 21 other drivers to beat him.

Trulli, Salo, Heidfeld and Frentzen will all acquit themselves well and Webber will again show why he is our undisputed Qualifying Hero.

What isn't clear, and won't be until Saturday is whether the jolly fat Frenchman will again relegate the lesser Bridgestone lights to the back end of the field..
