    It is now race week. The two weeks (and 3 weeks by they time they race again) seems like eternity.

    1. Redbull/Mercedes - was last race a omen for Mercedes or lost opportunity for Red Bull. Is Perez better than Vettel? Will Red Bull issues with their car (rear differential, power issue) hamper them? Will Perez be in position this race to give Red Bull some strategy options?

    2. Alpha Tauri - how will Gasly handle the pressure from Tsunoda

    3. Ferrari - looked much improved, will they make some noise

    4. Mclaren looked strong in Bahrain, and Ricardo should have good vibes from Romagna race last year.

    5. Aston Martin - Vettel, Vettel. It can't get any worse can it for him?

    6. Alpine - Ocon/Alonso are looking to bounce back. Renault is investing a lot of money and would probably like to see return on that investment.

    7. Williams/Alfa Romeo - Not much to watch, except to see how much George Russell can pull out of his Williams car.

    8. Haas - how many spins will they have this week?

    My predicted race finish

    1. Hamilton
    2. Verstappen
    3. Perez
    4. Bottas
    5. Ricardo
    6. LeClerc
    7. Norris
    8. Sainz
    9. Yuki
    10. Vettel
    11. Gasly
    12. Alonso
    13. Stroll
    14. Raikkonen
    15. Ocon
    16. Giovanazzi
    17. Russell
    18. Latifi
    19. Schumacher
    20. Maz-a-spin

    It's still early days, but they are predicting rain for Sunday. One can only hope!
    May the forza be with you

    When was the last time we had a wet race in Imola? I actually cannot remember ever having a wet San Marino GP.

    That is because the last wet race was in 1995. Really all the rain was over before the start. Not a propper wet race, rather drying conditions

    Mercedes flexed their muscles in FP1 and FP2

    FP1
    1. Bottas (1:16:564)
    2. Hamilton (1:16:605)
    3. Verstappen (1:16:622)

    FP2
    1. Bottas (1:15:522)
    2. Hamilton (1:15:561)
    3. Gasly (1:15:629)

    Red Bull struggled with Max car breaking down in FP2 and Perez crashing out in FP1.

    Winners
    1. Mercedes - did you really think they wouldn't have an answer

    2. Alpha Tauri - Gasly at 3 and Yuki at 7
    3. Ferrari

    Losers
    1. Red Bull - they are seeming to have reliability issue each week, Perez is underwhelming.

    2. Vettel - rumors they may have short lease with him
    3. McClaren - were very Ho-Hum

    Mercedes dug deeper and found gains after being “stung” by Red Bull – Allison
    Looks like the battle will be for Red Bull and Ferrari for #2
