Here are my picks, a very small chance to make it into the top 10 of the Idiots group ? (even though my picks aren't too different from mliittle!!)

Winner: Fernando Alonso - Double World Champion and many more to follow
Second: Giancarlo Fisichella - Having a good day!
Third: Jenson Button - Cute, me ? Thanks Jacfan!
Fourth: Felipe Massa - Too much pressure in Brazil
Fifth: Kimi Raikkonen - Can't wait to get in the Ferrari (not realising he will still break them!!)
Sixth: Jarno Trulli - Knows how to finish in the points by holding up those behind particularly Ralf!
Seventh: Rubens Barrichello - A bit less pressure in Brazil
Eighth: Nick Heidfeld - Has to finish in front of that Pole!!

Pole: Fernando Alonso - As always!!
I'm back and yes supporting Alonso "The Cute" in the Ferrari!

I can't believe it's my last time to post my picks for 06!

It's been the kind of season, though, that I love. And this week, as JayVee noted, the curse has been lifted, I don't have to pick the driver in the first blue and yellow car to win --and thereby hex him, because I did that last week AND HE BLOODY WON!

Of course, the up side was that it boosted me back into the third century and this week my picks are designed to move me into the second maybe!!

So with much ado here I go:


:1st: Michael Schumacher in the BIG RED MACHINE to win his EIGHTH WDC!!

:2nd: Kimi Raikkonen, next years WDC in the sleek silver merc engined McLaren --to celebrate Ron Dennis's first season in how long ??? without a win!!!

:3rd: Felipe Massa, to insure Ferarri's Constructor's Championship for 06

:up: Fourth: just off the Podium and the highest placing Spaniard, Pedro delaRosa (for his probably last F1 start)

:up: Fifth: Jensen, our boy J.B. --to further confuse the Honda Wallahs

:wave: Sixth: the Polish Prince, Kubica in his spanking Sauber!

:wave: Seventh: Rubens B, proving once again that his home circuit is cursed. He'll probably lead the race at one point... and then... what? a seventy second pit stop while they look for another wheel lock?

:clap: Eighth: Mark Webber (Is that blue and white car a Williams? Really?!? Then why hasn't the transmission fallen out yet?)

:clap: Pole? No Question. Eight Time WDC Michael Schumacher

And no. I'm not permitted to tell you what happens to the Gallic entries

cheerio, mates, and many thanks, JuliAn, for your kind reminders that I can't spell any better than I can pick 'em!

Jim :wave: :drink: :cheers:
My Racing Gods: Fangio, Vukovich; Senna & Mears --all racers all the time; graceful winners & generous in defeat, but never giving up!!

Two players top scored this round with 48 points.

ScrapDealer and Steven Pazin top scored this round. ScrapDealer was the earliest to submit their pick for this round.

The average score was 29.74.

Please give us your comments on how you've managed such a stunning pick!

Your Score for this round is 35 and your Rank for this round is 106 (Top score this round:48)

Your Total score is 460 and your Overall Rank is 427 out of 2013
Didn't do too bad in the final round. Still a miserable score overall! From 29th last year to 427th this year :( :(

Next year I will be back. Promise :D
