Well. Here goes nothing.
My picks for Spain '18

Winner: Sebastian Vettel
Second: Lewis Hamilton
Third: Kimi Raikkonen
Fourth: Max Verstappen
Fifth: Daniel Ricciardo
Sixth: Valtteri Bottas
Seventh: Carlos Sainz
Eighth: Fernando Alonso
Ninth: Esteban Ocon
Tenth: Kevin Magnussen
Pole: Sebastian Vettel

I'm still not sure where to place Valtteri Bottas. He is usually near the pointy end but the Red Bulls have been fast in the race.

I have also thrown a couple of Spaniards into the mix in the minor points positions.

:D :D Well, it's you and me again cmLean!! And, given the lunatic impulsiveness at Red Bull (no names shall be mentioned :oops: but you know what I mean, picking the race is a nightmare. There's a fast driver who can take ANYONE, or any combination of drivers OUT :evil: :evil: and so guessing the podium is a nightmare and the points down to # 10, who knows?? :ROTFLMAO:

so here goes :burnout:

1. Sebastian Vettel in his beautiful Ferrari all smiles as he takes the lead back from Lewis :D
2. Lewis Hamilton, the steadiest and canniest (except for Fernando) driver in the field in his struggling Merc
3. Kimi Raikkonen in his red machine, adding another podium to his collection :bouncec:

4. Reliable Mr. Bottas, "the other Finn" will tangle with Kimi and lose :|
5. Max Verstappen will leave machines in his wake, but his charge will be too late owing to trying to win in lap 4! :roll: :roll:
6. Daniel Ricciardo will not be able to get past Max and 'team orders' won't help him either :!: :(
7. Romain Grosjean will improve on last year's effort :clap: :clap:
8. Nico Hulkenberg will drag the Renault into the points, but not as far as last year's #6 :( :(
9. Sergio Perez will bring the pink car home :ROTFLMAO:
10. and Fernando Alonso, the UNluckiest F1 Champion of the era, will do his yeoman work and bring a point home to McLaren, a team one, at this point, can only pity :| :evil: :(

The Pole will be Sebastian's by a fraction of a second. :cheers:

Race should be full of fun! Looking forward to it.

I've loved racing since 1954 when I watched Bob Christie race a beautiful Curtis Midget with a V-8 60 Ford engine beat the Offies that came down from Portland from week to week and I saw both Foyt and Mears earn their 4th 500's during my years in Indiana. Maybe this year Helio will get lucky? :roll:
My Racing Gods: Fangio, Vukovich; Senna & Mears --all racers all the time; graceful winners & generous in defeat, but never giving up!!
