Just look at this:

http://www.formula1.com/race/result/...ap/765/24.html

The Hondas of Button and Barrichello are the slowest of all the front runners by a hige margin in straight line speed

Heidfeld's BMW was doing 216MPH and Button's Honda just 208MPH. That's a huge difference to make up in the corners and probably makes it very difficult to passa anyone.

The race is about to start - if either of the Hondas makes the podium, it will be a miracle.
