Let's start this ball rolling.

My picks for the Round of Spain '17 are.

Winner: Sebastian Vettel
Second: Lewis Hamilton
Third: Valtteri Bottas
Fourth: Kimi Raikkonen
Fifth: Max Verstappen
Sixth: Daniel Ricciardo
Seventh: Felipe Massa
Eighth: Sergio Perez
Ninth: Carlos Sainz
Tenth: Esteban Ocon
Pole: Sebastian Vettel

I can't imagine the chaos of last season with both Mercedes taking each other out on lap 1 of this Grand Prix.
Maybe a Mercedes and a Ferrari tangling I could see but, as they are in different teams and the points are relatively close, most teams will be aiming to get across the line in a points scoring position.

My feeling is that Ferrari were quick in pre-season and will again be fast. Kimi needs to have the car to his liking hence me demoting him to 4th.
Vettel, Hamilton, Bottas then Kimi are my first 4.

Now it starts to be difficult. We know that Max won here last year so I will give him 5th over Daniel Ricciardo.
Filipe Massa is doing a sterling job in providing points for Williams. This will be another bundle for him to lock away.

As has happened regularly this season, the Force India's should again finish in the points and I have chucked in the Toro Rosso to split them.

So, this is where I am. What do you say about your picks?

Winner: Sebastian Vettel
Second: Kimi Raikkonen
Third: Lewis Hamilton
Fourth: Valtteri Bottas
Fifth: Daniel Ricciardo
Sixth: Sergio Perez
Seventh: Felipe Massa
Eighth: Nico Hulkenberg
Ninth: Esteban Ocon
Tenth: Carlos Sainz
Pole: Lewis Hamilton

Pretty much guesswork. I think Raikkonen's being underestimate. Last race weekend he had the pace for pole, and it was the start that determined the finish, so he could've just as easily been first or second.

Red Bull apparently have updates, but they need to sort reliability too. I think they've had three DNFs so far.
