I may revise them ahead of the Grand Prix-
You have registered the following picks :

Winner : Kimi Raikkonen -- "Nice sights on this track"

Second : Lewis Hamilton -- "I loove the roller coaster"

Third : Heikki Kovalainen -- will he be able to stand on the podium with a magistral pain in the neck

Fourth : Nick Heidfeld -- Outpacing his teammate at least once this year

Fifth : Fernando Alonso -- we are getting there

Sixth : Robert Kubica -- need to refine that strategy

Seventh : Felipe Massa -- bad luck

Eighth : Jarno Trulli -- the 2008 Toyota seems to work well, I expect some points

Pole : Robert Kubica -- loved the Pole in pole, will it happen again?

Fifth: Nico Rosberg :?: (Come on, NICO!)

Sixth: Jarno Trulli :P (Nice!)

Here we go....arbitrary wild guessing will get me to the top. I am thinkin Heikki will be a little shaken up. That's why he is not up there.

Fourth : Fernando Alonso - More than capable of doing it
Fifth : Lewis Hamilton - The title is becoming more of a dream
Sixth : Nick Heidfeld - Getting seriously worried about the Pole!

Revised picks:

Fourth: Nick Heidfeld -> Fernando Alonso

Fifth: Fernando Alonso -> Robert Kubica

Sixth: Robert Kubica -> Nick Heidfeld

Seventh: Felipe Massa -> Jarno Trulli

Eighth: Jarno Trulli -> Nico Rosberg

Following the revelation that Heidfeld suffers from hayfever, thus a 4th place is more unlikely, also it does not make much sense to have Felipe in 7th so I eliminated him altogether from my picks.

Now watch Heidfeld finish 4th :shock: :shock:

It has happened so many times that you almost feel it is on purpose!!

Felipe should do well or retire with a spin so I think it was sensible to take him out completely :wink: I still think he will dominate.

Mmh, my original picks would have done better. I picked Massa as the "unlucky" guy and it was Kovalainen instead :party5:
