Greetings Fans! :beer:

Jay Vee, picking the Spaniard to win doesn't surprise me, but then M. Little did the same thing!! :clap::clap: I admire your hutzpah, but I'm standing in the Pole N 8 at 143 over all right now, so I'm willing to take a chance on the winner, but I think I'll pick one that has a chance:
:1st: will go to Sebastian Vettel, along with the pole. that's my pick for a surprise. Seb has the speed and the car and this place has a way of rewarding the lucky.:roll:
:2nd: will go to Jenson in the Braun; I predict he'll harass the kid, but the kid won't wilt, so he'll have to settle for the second step :burnout:
:3rd: Kimi will stand, again, on the third step --and I think he'll be staring off into the [retirement] distance :alright:
4th: will go to the Hambone; he's got the car, but not the momentum :zzzz:
5th: I almost picked Mark Webber to win this thing, but good sense prevailed and so I see him, like most #2's, three or four slots off #1 :alright:
6th: Rubens, for the same reasons as above :zzzz:
7th: Felipe, for the same reasons as above :bang:
8th: & the final point will go to well-deserving [??!!] Heikki K. :clap:

Pole, as I said above, will be the kid's Seb V. :crush:

Enjoy the race; expect some surprises, Jim Watt :drink:
My Racing Gods: Fangio, Vukovich; Senna & Mears --all racers all the time; graceful winners & generous in defeat, but never giving up!!
