This track is Monaco-like. A few of us picked Webbo, looking at the group results for F1Idiots........... :up:

Hamilton and Alonso would do well to keep an eye on their mirrors for kamikaze moves from team-mates.

The Brawns should be able to generate tyre heat here. The Barra will be on a charge, or eat his own words.

Kimi will have the elbows out.
That longer start straight will have the KERS cars bunching the field at turn one, it could get very, very messy.

Rosberg will be out to impress McLaren/Mercedes/Haug.

Glock and Sooty might have an interesting race, and the Torro Rosso drivers will be under orders to stay apart.

Webbo has just re-signed, and the leg and shoulder are getting better by the day, while Vettel has a point to prove.

After a reasonable round in Germany, it is time to take more risks in the hope of moving further up :D

Winner : Mark Webber - He now has a win behind him. Should be an easy one
Second : Jenson Button - He'll be happy with second
Third : Fernando Alonso - You'll start seeing Alonso up here from now on
Fourth : Sebastian Vettel - Stunned by Webber
Fifth : Heikki Kovalainen - Should be a good track for McLaren and Kovalainen needs to prove himself
Sixth : Nico Rosberg - Wants to impress McLaren
Seventh : Rubens Barrichello - Something must happen to this guy :(
Eighth : Jarno Trulli - He does well here I think!!
Pole : Mark Webber - He'll do it easily!
I'm back and yes supporting Alonso "The Cute" in the Ferrari!

:D Greetings Mates! Can't say how glad I am to be still in the lower end of the second century and hoping to keep or improve that status with the following picks:

First: Mark Webber in the RBR. --Happy to be picking one of my long time favorites, too!
Second: Seb. Vettel in the other RBR --Learning a little from his cagey mate
Third: Lewis Hamilton in the reborn McLaren ... and, you know, with a little luck Lewis could actually win this thing!
Fourth: Nico Rosberg in the lovely and quick Williams ---hoping Nico gets a faster ride next year, too!
Fifth: Jenson Button --Don't think Ross has any more development money; hope he finds someone to help him next year. Now he has to hope that Seb and Mark cancel each other out!
Sixth: Felipe Massa in the Ferrari --still a good driver and a decent machine
Seventh: Rubens in the other Braun machine --unless Fernando can figure out how to get in front of him!
Eighth: Fernando Alonso --the fastest and most skilled driver on the grid!

Pole will be Mark Webber's --the man deserves no less!

Looking forward to practice tomorrow and the week end, too!

Will be skipping the NASCAR circus in my home town this year; last year was even worse than the famous Michelein meltdown for F1 a few years back.

cheers and best of luck,

Jim Watt

I don't think anyone here is good enough. We all bow to the Angel.
