My picks ....

Winner: Felipe Massa - he has the momentum
Second: Fernando Alonso - just give him a decent car!
Third: Kimi Raikkonen - on the third step again
Fourth: Robert Kubica - just misses out on the podium but remains in the hunt
Fifth: Heikki Kovalainen - just about where he usually finishes, the failure goes to his teammate this time!
Sixth: Sebastian Vettel - has to put him somewhere in the top 8
Seventh: Jarno Trulli - finishes in the points every once in a while
Eighth: Mark Webber - another points finish
Pole: Felipe Massa - not hard to figure out!
I'm back and yes supporting Alonso "The Cute" in the Ferrari!

:D Already it's time for Shanghai!

and THIS YEAR it will be Kimi's turn :cheers:

The Podium will feature

:1st: LAST YEAR's WDC by a single point Kimi Raikkonen in his go for broke Ferrari which he'll drive the wheels off!
:2nd: ROBERT KUBICA who will muscle Lewis into the off somewhere and take his points :up: :up:
:3rd: LEWIS HAMilton who will finally learn how to apply the brakes :roll:


4th:FELIPE in the other red car watching his WDC fade in the west :alright:

5th: FERNANDO, driving like the two time WDC and pushing his French Machine beyond its limits! :burnout: :clap::bouncec::clap:

6th: Little Nelson P. driving for his seat like crazy :twisted: :drive:

7th: What happened to :super: Heikki everyone will be asking --not least Mr. Dennis

...and EIGHTH PLACE & final point goes to: Sebastian V. in the Toro Rosso Ferrari up: :up: :cheers: :clap:

The Pole: K.R. finally, of course; why shouldn't his season end the way most of his races have?? :roll:

It's been a GREAT season for the most part and I am already looking past Brazil and Winter Testing to a whole new and better one next year (even tho' the French G.P. will need to be replaced by a race to be held in one of those weird venues like that obscure Emirate, Ecclestonia!) 8)
