:D Gho Gho beat me to the picks. I admit to some concern about Rubinho's new engine, but I'm picking Jense to finish ahead of him anyway; same goes for choosing Jarno over Ralphie

to get to it without any more unnecessary verbiage:

I picked Michael for the Pole Winner

1: Fernando (I'm going to keep picking him as long as he doesn't win!)
2. Michael (will probably win, but he needs the points more than I do, so I'm happy to pick him for runner up)
3. Kimi (if Ron Dennis ever gives him a car, watch out!)
4. Felipe (he'll be trying to help out his boss, but I don't think he'll be able to out drive Kimi on this track!)
5. Pedro de la Rosa (he needs to show something NOW, but I just don't see how he has a chance at anything better than fifth!)
6. Fisi (the backbone of next year's Renault squad: anybody for bets on how THAT works out?!)
7. Jense (I expect to see him pushing Fisi, in fact)
8. Jarno (on this track the Toyota's wobbly chassis might be an advantage!)

looking forward to the picks of the informed ones!
