:D Greetings Chaps! Doncha just love picking this year!! I'm still actually trying to figure it out. maybe the dart board for the next race: That said, here's me picks for The Grand Prix de Monaco

:1st: :up: Jenson Button in the Brawn-y/Merc. machine from the Pole! Can't argue with success, can you?

:2nd: :alright: Sebastian Vettel in the lovely Newey/Renault; sorry old chap, but you'll just have to get used to it: the Merc. has more torque!

:3rd: :wave: So much for the favoritism argument, Rubens in the best car will be in the third position: will the word this week be brake fade? :oops:

4th: just off the podium and hounding Rubens will be the ever unlucky Mark Webber who can't buy a break :roll:

5th: driving a :zzzz: race will be little Felipe Massa in, wha's at you say, a Ferrari? Really?? :unfair:

6th: the best driver on the course, Fernando Alonso, will be dragging the Renault around ten times faster than it ought to be! :cheers:

7th: Huffing mightily for his Oriental Masters, Timo Glock will bring the Toyota home [barely] in the points again :clap: :clap:

8th: but will anyone notice him? :gl:, will find Lewis Hamilton saved by his Merc.

The Pole, as I said above, is Jenson's :burnout:

Remember: I picked Kimi Raikkonen for Barcelona! To win. From the Pole :lol: :lol: I just hope I don't put the hex on Button! 8)
