I foresee a good showing of the German parts here....

You have registered the following picks :
Winner : Lewis Hamilton - Lewis needs confidence as much as anyone else. The victory will have given him that.

Second : Robert Kubica - Back to optimal conditions for Robert, plus BMW-Sauber are near their bases.

Third : Kimi Raikkonen - It has been a while he showed how to win. Maybe after next race?

Fourth : Felipe Massa - Maybe on a different strategy?

Fifth : Nick Heidfeld - Another BMW, I really hope Heidfeld can confirm his form

Sixth : Nelson Piquet Jr - Wouldn't that be a surprise? But it would show that Renault is really picking up speed

Seventh : Heikki Kovalainen - No excuse for not coming into the points. He needs to catch up with the others though.

Eighth : Fernando Alonso - Hey, he can't allow any lowly team to take that point!

Pole : Felipe Massa - Fast in qualifications

Winner : Lewis Hamilton - on a run

Second : Felipe Massa - don't tell me about the last race, he was third in monaco in the rain. maybe no super-consistent all-rounder, but damn quick most of the time

Third : Kimi Raikkonen - why not

Fourth : Robert Kubica - wish i could put heidfeld here instead

Fifth : Heikki Kovalainen - not yet brilliant, but never too bad

Sixth : Fernando Alonso - quick even with a french engine

Seventh : Mark Webber - should've put him in front of alonso, rbr is on the up

Eighth : Jarno Trulli - could also be 4th or 5th, good to see them improving

Pole : Lewis Hamilton - thrashing the lot of them
