:D Right Mates:

Unless there is a SANDSTORM of EPIC PROPORTIONS, the following should be the order of finish in Bahrain:

:1st: Jenson in the Ross Braun, getting back in stride! :woohoo:
:2nd: Seb Vettel in the Red Bull, pushing to the end :burnout:
:3rd: Rubens in the Ross Braun, anchoring the podium :maths:
4th: Webbo in the second Red Bull, wondering what the gods have against him giving him such a good car --and such a GREAT team mate :alright:
5th: Timo Glock in the ugliest car on the grid, but one that can finally move up from the rear :roll:
6th: Fernando in the funny French machine, wondering if he will ever get with the right team & equipment again :oops:
7th: Lewis Hamilton in something in silver, finally learning a little humility even? :cry:
and for the 8th & final point: Nick Heidfeld, who has had a pretty good run in the desert, finishing fourth the past two years (when the red and silver cars were carrying the day) :wave:

Looking forward to, I hope, a race that lives up to F1 standards of thrills and skills, one without the slapstick energy of Harold Lloyd or the cheap tricks of the finally absent Mr. Dennis :twisted:
:cheers: Jim Watt
My Racing Gods: Fangio, Vukovich; Senna & Mears --all racers all the time; graceful winners & generous in defeat, but never giving up!!

I wish that I could give my reasons as succinctly as our Jim but the brain is fuddled and I basically agree with MLittle... throw the darts and hope they stick.
Having said all that my tips are as follows...

Winner : Jenson Button

Second : Sebastian Vettel

Third : Rubens Barrichello

Fourth : Mark Webber

Fifth : Felipe Massa

Sixth : Nick Heidfeld

Seventh : Lewis Hamilton

Eighth : Timo Glock

Pole : Jenson Button

and basically just praying for some points. At least the likelyhood of rain drenching the track is unlikely but then again it might be their one day of rain for the year!!!! :oops:

Ok, I think the Red Bull will be very strong in Bahrain with Renault narrowly behind.
Brawn will start falling behind but they will also be strong in Bahrain


Winner: Sebastian Vettel - He is on a roll
Second: Fernando Alonso - Double diffuser works in the dry :D
Third: Jarno Trulli - Didn't Toyota test in Bahrain ?
Fourth: Mark Webber - I am hoping he can do better
Fifth: Jenson Button - The others are catching up
Sixth: Rubens Barrichello - Behind Button Again!!
Seventh: Robert Kubica - Trying to recover from the shocking result in China
Eighth: Heikki Kovalainen - Not so fast but consistent

Pole: Fernando Alonso - Another low fuel run I suspect :D
I'm back and yes supporting Alonso "The Cute" in the Ferrari!

I predict another sweeping victory for Brawn GP!


The picks you have entered are:

Winner: Jenson Button - double diffuser goodness

Second: Rubens Barrichello - eternal second?

Third: Lewis Hamilton - Eh? Really? But *new aero* *KERS* why not a podium?

Fourth: Sebastian Vettel - great package

Fifth: Fernando Alonso - new aero should help once again

Sixth: Timo Glock - still having some faith in the Toyotas. Either him or Trulli gets points.

Seventh: Nico Rosberg - I hope Williams does better than last round :oops:

Eighth: Adrian Sutil - That would be interesting... With some luck and a good strategy it would be possible.

Pole: Jenson Button - Fastest

I have factored in tyre friendly cars, circuit temperatures, dust problems, aero updates, kers, double diffusers, fuel consumption data, team strategists, brake wear, driver weights, their girlfriends/wives birthdays, phases of the moon, consulted chicken entrails, and have decided the only logical thing is to borrow MLittles dartboard. :conf3:
