Order :crush: :crush: in the Court!
Here will be my picks for the way I WANT the race to play out. Even though I have crawled back into the second hundred from my picks last week, I am going to go for the storybook ending here.
:1st: will go to Felipe Massa, who will WIN THE WDC! and the whole country will go nuts :updown: :updown:
:2nd: will be Kimi Raikkonen who will drown his team mate in Champagne! :up: :up:
:3rd: will be Fernando Alonso, two-time WDC, making a podium with Four WDC's on it! :up: :up: :clap: :clap: :clap:
4th Place will be Robert Kubica's, doing his part in denying the Brit his WDC, and managing to be cheerful about it :rolling: :rolling:
5th Place, the one Lewis HAS TO HAVE, will go to Quick Nick Heidfeld in the other BMW Sauber, a guy who knows what it is to be close, but no cigar! :light:
in 6th Place, even after a desperate last lap effort to overtake Nick, will be this era's Michael Schumacher, a brilliant driver that nobody loves, Lewis-- 'always a bridesmaid'-- Hamilton. :alright: & Ron Dennis will be in shock :cry: :cry: :cry: I mean SHOCK :cry: :cry: :cry:
7th Place will go to Heikki K., once again managing to do Nothing, or next to it, for his Team.
and the final point 8th Place, will be David Coulthard's, a fitting end to an excellent career! :up: :up: :clap: :clap: :clap: :gl:

The Pole will, naturally, be Felipe's

It's been an excellent season; let's hope it has an excellent finish.

Now. If someone will just do SOMETHING about the terrible :twisted: Mr. E. :twisted: before he manages to completely destroy F1!! :knight:
:wave: Jim Watt :cheers: See you next Year!

Well like Jim I am going for the way I want it to pan out..... I have to have something to believe in.


Winner: Felipe Massa ~ WDC

Second: Fernando Alonso ~ He still has the fire in the belly

Third: Kimi Raikkonen ~ He likes the podium

Fourth: Sebastian Vettel ~ the surprise packet of the year

Fifth: Mark Webber ~ Please have some luck

Sixth: Rubens Barrichello ~ He loves the home crowd

Seventh: Lewis Hamilton ~ Lewis will probably take out Coultard, Button on the first lap while trying to get to the front of the pack... be given a 10 second stop and go penalty.... then he will force Nelson Piquet off the track and get a drive through penalty and finally the team will stuff up his last pit stop causing Ron Dennis to pull out what is left of his hair and Lewis to be no longer Ron's number one!!!

Eighth: Nico Rosberg ~ Managed to avoid LH.

Pole: Felipe Massa
