I'm doing something that I don't think I have done before.

My tips will ride for a third successive grand prix.

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

I'm still not real sure of the Williams progress. They may come back with a better package than before the break. We will see.

Hello Friends:

I'm picking Kimi to win his FIFTH Belgian G.P. and frustrate all the nay sayers :D

Lewis will be right behind him from Lap 1 to the finish :bouncec:

Valteri will frustrate Vettel all race long which might end with them both crashing out but I hope not 8)

in fourth and watching his WDC slip away will be our man Sebastian Vettel :roll:

Fifth Place (if he can manage not to wreck himself and his team-mate will be wunderkind Max V :oops:

Sixt place points will go to always grinning Ricciardo (unless Max takes him out again) :?

Seventh place will go to the Hulk if he can keep the machine from breaking :evil:

Eight place points will be awarded to Carlos Sainz :bouncey:

Ninth place will go to the best driver on the grid Fernando in another failing McLaren/Honda :shock:

and the final point will be awarded to the guy who gives all the pointy end of the grid nightmares, Estaban Ocon in what is that car again? :P

The Pole will be Lewis's but he'll have a bad start and it won't do him any good. :wink:

I expect a fingernail biting Qualification session tomorrow that will put some of the boys in unfamiliar grid spots, but the race will come down to the drivers with the capacity to ignore the temptation to try any line that isn't on the very edge of adhesion.
