It's gonna be very interesting if it's a wet race on Sunday! I put my money on Button. But who knows at the end of the day, we'll have to wait till qualifying

Thanks for all the pics E90Slam, you're a great source

Don't forget Vettel won his first race in a less competitive STR in 2008.

So where did this unfounded opinion that Hamilton sucks in the wet come from? Because I disagree.

There was a lot of speculation that their big revision to the car body and exhaust in the pre-season didn't actually help anything and possibly made the car a mess.

So they may be trying both revisions of the car out to directly compare.

I wouldn't say Hamilton sucks in the rain, but his poor decision making skills last season lost him a great opportunity in the Canadian GP.

Exactly. We've some brilliant drives by him in the rain (Spa, Silverstone '08) and some pretty poor ones, too (Canada, Hungary 2011, China '07)

Doesn't matter how good schumi WAS or still is in the rain, he doesn't have the car to win.
