Wow first again. Guess no one wants to commit just yet.
Ok I will lead the charge.

Winner: Fernando Alonso ~ Wants it badly

Second: Kimi Raikkonen ~ You can't discount him

Third: Felipe Massa ~ Keeping Lewis at bay

Fourth: Lewis Hamilton ~ Interesting to see how he goes here but he has been on the track before

Fifth: Nick Heidfeld ~ Always good

Sixth: Robert Kubica ~ again a gutsy driver

Seventh: Heikki Kovalainen ~ He has done well this year

Eighth: Nico Rosberg ~ I usually leave him out and then regret it

Pole: Kimi Raikkonen ~ Why not?

True, perhaps no one wants to commit but that's also cuz you have the time zone advantage jacfan :)

This time I have decided to have some fun. Mayhap I'll score a mere 20-odd pts at most but what the hey:

1. Raikkonen (cuz this is how I want it to be)
2. Heidfeld (cuz this is how I feel it to be)
3. Alonso (cuz this is how I think it will be)
4. Massa (cuz this is how I prefer it to be)
5. Fisichella (cuz this is how I believe it ought to be)
6. Rosberg (cuz this is how I like it to be)
7. Hamilton (cuz this is how I see it to be)
8. Schumacher (cuz this is how I pick it to be)

P. Raikkonen (cuz this is it)

I thought they said after the last GP that Lewis had been on this track before. Guess I should not listen to commentators.

Too late this season for me to start playing, but these would be my picks:

1. FA - superior aerodynamics and top speed on a track with a 1.5 km straight!
2. LH - ditto, but without FA's setup assistance will only get 2nd
3. KR - the best driver in the second best car.
4. FM - next best in red
5. NH - quietly getting on with the job
6. HK - making the most of a bad renault.
7. RK - not as consistent as NH, but as fast at times.
8. NR - williams is aways in with a shout.

pole - FA

MW and DC could even get into q3 :shock: , but reliability issues will prevent a good result :shock:
