Germany 2008 - The race // Get involved as we watch the racing action from Germany

The weather in Hockenheim this morning is warm and bright. A quick look at the official webcam shows sunshine and blue sky.

Anyone hoping for rain (or snow!) will probably be disappointed by this, but I'm betting the Ferrari team are all smiles right now. The rubber that was laid down on Saturday should offer a nice grippy surface for all the drivers and the warm temperatures will likely benefit those who can make the best use of the softer tyre.

While all this means we probably won't have quite as exciting a race as last time out, the run to the first corner is a big one, and there's often been race ending accidents leading into the right-hander in the past.

Three RB4's line up 8th to 10th, so there could be an almighty scrap between these closely matched cars and while Räikkönen will be wary of those behind him, it's Alonso and Trulli in front that he'll be mostly focussing on. Further back, we have an out of position Heidfeld in 12th with Rosberg directly behind him. What kind of strategy will those two be running to jump them up the order?
