:D Now that the Singapore Farce is finished (F1 Rocks! Wow!! We got the snow peas (or something like that) and [breathless pause] BEYONCE! gag gag gag :oops:) we get to go to a real race course.

I'm sticking with Jenson, proabably because I'm stubborn, & I think Ross Braun may have something up his sleeve for the car... just a hunch. So the white car with almost no sponsor stickers on it & Jenson Button in the seat should be in park ferme in
:1st: place when the race is finished.
:2nd: will go to the OTHER Merc, the one with the defending WDC in it because I think they're getting a little wired in Woking! :lol:
:3rd: will go to a Renault powered car with a German driver: Seb. V. in the Red Bull (if he can just catch a break from the Stewards!) :cry:
Fourth Place will be Rubens B's ... as he begins to see his dream slip away :( :alright:
Fifth Place Should belong to Mark Webber, the only driver on the grid with worse luck than Kimi! :evil:
...but, at least, he'll beat the new Ferrari chap, wazhisname Fernando? who will be motoring around in his slickmobile -- 8) oops, I mean RAY NO! [another car with few sponsor decals] to take SIXTH
and SEVENTH PLACE will go to the well deserving Kimi Raikkonen, STILL my FAV driver (because, as I said, I'm STUBBORN)
I hope he goes back to McLaren --the evil silver 8) machines-- and finds his second WDC there. Now that Ron Dennis has been well and properly neutered, maybe Kimi will be given a car that actually is RELIABLe??
EIGHTH PLACE, the final point, I'm awarding to long-suffering Robert K. the Pole who pushes hardest.
I hope he finds HIS way to Rubens' seat with Braun next year. I somehow think the pecunious Ross Braun is unlikely to pay for Kimi!8)

oh, yes, the POLE? It will be the Hambone's

looking forward eagerly to some actual racing this week end.

:D Hullo Jac Fan!

You've picked Kimi to win!! But Ferrari has already admitted they're finished with this year's model... AND they're finished with Kimi!!

I hope you're right; any win by Kimi is cause for celebration from me --and it would be DELICIOUS to see the Ferrari rep on the podium with Kimi, trying to look like a team-mate!

But we agree, at least, on the pole. the Hambone has shown that he's a qualifier to be ranked with Michael S. Given a solid machine, he delivers.

Hmmm to be the top idiot..... good or bad??? :shock: :?
