Spain 2009 - The race - Can Barcelona avoid the processional races of the past?

Published by Christine

It's all about Brawn GP, Red Bull and Ferrari this weekend, as their relative starting positions will create the interest of the race. Barcelona has been known to throw up a procession and we'll be hoping to avoid that.

Weather update

The weather looks as though it should stay as it has for the majority of the weekend - sunny, if a little cloudy. Perhaps the wind will play a part, but it's unlikely we'll see rain. (Famous last words.)

One to watch

There's no doubt that Massa is the one to watch, as he's starting fourth with a favourable fuel load but the addition of KERS will help him out. Alonso is running light and starting from eighth, but without KERS he may not be able to make it up very far.

Predictions please

Will the standard Barcelona practices apply, and the polesitter will take the win? Can Vettel shake things up? What can Kimi do from 16th? Will Alonso make it to the end of his home race? What will the podium look like in a few hours time?
