As I'm watching the Q session, I'm amazed at Alonso's Q3 P2 performance. Assuming the equipment isn't quite up to Ferrari/McLaren standards (not to mention it may not be up to Sauber standards) that was an amazing lap from Alonso.
Getting a Renault to within .091 of Riakkonen and faster than Massa is a great accomplishment, and Alonso can fight during a GP so he'll not be easy to get around for those behind him. Plus, he's shown patience and restraint, so he may be able to take advantage of any mishaps Raikkonen might have. We'll see.
It's sad to hear about Super Aguri. Money problems are always a show stopper and they were a great team to watch (when they weren't causing problems by being in the way, but that was two years ago now).
I was underwhelmed by the BMWs, I hope they shave some time during the GP.
The other big news IMO is Kovalainen. He's the real deal, every bit as capable of a great GP as (gasp!...) Hamilton. This may make Hamilton look less divine this year, but it's the truth and it's life. I'm glad Renault let him go, he'll have a better future IMO at McLaren.
