Third: Max Verstappen
Fourth: Alexander Albon
Fifth: Charles Leclerc
Sixth: Sergio Perez
Seventh: Lando Norris

Well, I'm gussing CMLEAN posted his picks before Danny Ricciardo's crash. And I have to say it's pretty tricky picking the 10npole this year! Indeed, it's easier to pick the pole than the race!

After much head-scratching, here is my go at the second round in Austria

1. Valteri Bottas: I see no reason not to pick Valteri. I'm pretty sure the curb problem has been solved by the team and Valteri i clearly more at ease with this circuit than Lewis.
2. Lewis Hamilton: Lewis will probably challenge Valteri and maybe even get past him, but after the pit stop, I expect Valteri to finish the race in front.
3, Max Verstappen. I can't believe they haven't fixed whatever was wrong with the computer last week.
4. Alex Albon: wouldn't it be fun if Max got a little careless and Alex beat him?!
5. Carlos Sainz: So happy to see McLaren getting back in the flow again. Just their luck to be changing engines next season now that rhe Renault is really working!
6.Sergio Perez Sergio may very well mix it up with Sainz & Albon and end up higher, but he'll do no weres than p.6!
7, Lando Norris I'm only putting Lando down here because of that worrying problem with chest pains while braking (after all he just missed the podium last week!
8.Charles LeClerc. Now this may well change if we're racing on wets; in that case I think Charles (and Sebastian!) may well end up chasing Lewis and Max ... all of them being great in the wet!
9. Esteban Ocon I expecct the Renault to continue to out perform the Ferraris and McLarens in the long run, and, in the wet he might get even luckier than last week when he got p. 8
10. Pierre Gasly I think the Alpha T. guys will embarrass Sebastian this week and snab the p.10. I sure hope Seb can get a ride next year with Honda power. I'd love to see he and he and Fernando racing one another again.
And the Pole will be: Valteri Bottas's second Pole of the season (and probably his last)

lookining forward to Qualifiocations and the race on Wets, in which case all bets are off!
