:D Can't figure out how I can be first! Am having provider troubles at home and having to use the local coffee shop to get access to net!

anyway, here's my picks and I don't even know what the weather forecast is for S-stone!

:1st: The Kimster rules in the big red Ferrari
:2nd: The little guy in the big red (#2) Ferrari comes home with some kind of excuse (like maybe he thought his exhaust system was faulty?)
:3rd: Lewis Hamilton in the big Merc with local support (for the second year in a row demonstrating that his ISN'T another Schuey, even tho' he is trying (in all the WRONG ways) to be!
4th: the fastest Pole ever, Robert Kubica, in the OTHER teutonic machine :burnout:
5th: the Teuton in the other Teutonic BMW [not so quick] Nick:up:
6th: Fernando Alonso in the French Machine (:alright: Sorry Jay Vee, but on the bright side if Fernando were driving a BMW neither Ross Braun nor Stefan D would be sleeping well!)
7th: Jarno T. in the Toyota showing the clever Easterners that drivers DO make a difference :maths:
8th: final point goes to Mark Webber in the Red Bull :up:
and the Pole is, naturally,
Kimi's :cheers:

Looking forward to another great race, even tho' the idiots at Fox Sports are delaying it till some time in the afternoon! Wish they would just leave it to the Speed Network who understand that racing is a matter best experienced in real time.

And I too am going for Raikkonen as I think he will have the upper hand on this circuit over Massa.

So here goes ...

Winner: Kimi Raikkonen (should be easy)
Second: Felipe Massa (will blame traffic)
Third: Heikki Kovalainen (should do well here)
Fourth: Fernando Alonso (the best he can get out of this car)
Fifth: Robert Kubica (yes BMW are not developing quick enough!)
Sixth: Lewis Hamilton (under pressure .... ......)
Seventh: Jarno Trulli (looks like Toyota is turning around ..... after all those years!)
Eighth: Nick Heidfeld (If Kubica is 5th then Heidfeld would be a few places behind!)
Pole: Felipe Massa (fast ... very fast ... good enough for pole)
I'm back and yes supporting Alonso "The Cute" in the Ferrari!

Winner : Kimi Raikkonen - since Kimi can have an engine change without penalty I will go with the crowd.

Second : Robert Kubica - The boy is good

Third : Felipe Massa - Almost there

Fourth : Heikki Kovalainen - Better focused than his team mate.

Fifth : Lewis Hamilton :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: can't totally discount him

Sixth : Jarno Trulli - Why not????

You have registered the following picks :
Winner : Lewis Hamilton - Master at home!

Second : Kimi Raikkonen - Dancing on /i/c/e/ water

Third : Robert Kubica - I don't believe BMW when they say the pace of development is less than the top teams

Fourth : Nico Rosberg - Bad forecast = Opportunity

Fifth : Heikki Kovalainen - Showing his worth in the wet

Sixth : Fernando Alonso - Cruising through

Seventh : Sebastian Vettel - Viva la lluvia!

Eighth : Rubens Barrichello - Experience, agility and the latest Honda aerodynamic parts

Pole : Kimi Raikkonen - If it is not too wet during qualifications

I expect it will rain during the race.
Left out:

Felipe Massa- I simply forgot him! Forgive me. Besides he has the flu.
Red Bull Racing- For some reason I don't think they'll be in the points this week-end. Though I did pick Sebastian in the Toro Rosso.
Piquet- Can't be that good at every race. But it is nice to see that he can drive after all.
Trulli- Yes, he can make it. There are only 8 picks!
Sutil- He did not prove he can repeat Canada yet.

:D :D Wow!

I really like jido's picks and reasoning!

Third : Robert Kubica - I don't believe BMW when they say the pace of development is less than the top teams

Fourth : Nico Rosberg - Bad forecast = Opportunity

Trulli- Yes, he can make it. There are only 8 picks!
Sutil- He did not prove he can repeat Canada yet.

If it turns out to your advantage you will deserve going to the head of the class! I have to admit that when I see so many people picking Kimi, it makes me nervous!

Good Luck and Good Racing (I love it in the wet)

Thanks.
But there is hardly any "reasoning", the picks are according to my feelings then I try to justify them when I come here :party6: :lol:
