Round of Australia '08 - Picks and comments

Post by 8 n Pole Admin » Tue Feb 19, 2008 8:11 pm

As we've launched the 2008 8 'n' Pole Competition, we have created this thread for players to post their picks for the first race of the season in Australia.

You can submit your picks at ttp://www.newsonf1.com/8npole/submit.htm then paste your picks here and tell us why you think your picks will be the correct ones.

The deadline for submitting the picks for Australia is the 14th of March prior to the start of the first Friday practice session.

Good luck

I am sure we are all excited by the prospect of a new year. Unfortunately I won't be in Australia for the GP this year. It is our 25th wedding anniversary at the end of March and we are going to Phuket for a week in the beginning of March. My first trip outside Oz!!
I booked the holiday before checking the date of the GP.
Must remember to get my tips in!!!
Good luck to everyone.

Winner : Kimi Raikkonen
Second : Felipe Massa

Fourth : Nick Heidfeld
Fifth : Nico Rosberg

I think Ferrari and McLaren have the edge (based on pre-season testing), so I picked them to finish in the top 3. GO KIMI!!

Thank you for submitting your 8 'n' Pole picks for the Grand Prix of Australia.

Second : Felipe Massa
Third : Heikki Kovalainen
Fourth : Kimi Raikkonen
Fifth : Fernando Alonso
Sixth : Mark Webber
Seventh : Nick Heidfeld

The start of something new. Hammo (& McLaren) will win the season. Ferrari will be close, then Alonso will fight the rest for the last points.

Have a good trip Jacfan. 8)

Winner: Kimi Raikkonen
Second: Lewis Hamilton
Third: Felipe Massa
Fourth: Fernando Alonso
Fifth: Heikki Kovalainen
Sixth: Nico Rosberg
Seventh: Robert Kubica
Eighth: Mark Webber

Pole: Kimi Raikkonen

Im going with the conventional wisdom that Maccas and Ferrari are a cut above the rest, Alonso will be leading the best of the rest of which the biggest surprise is going to be Nico Rosberg, followed by Webber in a mildly competitive, reliable car.

Nick Heidfeld didnt feature in my (extensive and lengthy :roll: ) deliberations so I guess he must be going to have a bad day.

Looking forward to being proved wrong 8)
