  1. Gah, I hate making these difficult predictions… It’s fairly obvious who the top 6 will be, but you’re banking on there being no big crashes! I remember getting lucky with putting Vettel on pole for Japan, and Button for the win..

    Next year, any chance of predicting the top 10 rather than the top 5? It’s so difficult…

  2. I am just SO glad I got a new laptop charger through the door in time. I’ve scored points in every race so far this year, and I don’t want to let that one go! Seb for pole (obviously) and Lewis for the win!

  3. Lewis for pole

  4. Vettel pole and victory.
    I believe that McLaren will have RB covered in terms of pace, but last time I voted for a McLaren driver for the win, he decided to crash into Kobayashi instead.

    1. so let’s hope that jinx works again, mate :D

  5. Ah, It’s too hard!! However Mclaren and Ferrari showed they have pace in Suzuka so why not in Korea? also some set up error would make the race very interesting.

    I normally scramble my choice among 6 drivers on this possible order:
    1. Vettel
    2. Button (or ALO)
    3. Alonso (or BUT)
    4. Hamilton (or WEB)
    5. Webber (or Schumacher)

    Sorry Massa, you’re never considered by my sensible mind… once I even rathered bet for Perez, Petrov or Diresta… but Massa? Come’on

    1. or rosberg occasionally in the earlier part of the season; but I hear you on Massa.

  7. Yeah i think i’ll wait till after P3 for my prediction, might be wise. If i was to predict right now i’d probably put Aguesuari, Buemi & Schumacher all in the top 5 so i think i’ll wait for some dry running. Seriously though i think this is McLarens best shot at a 1,2 so far this season, Seb might make it tough for them though if he sticks it on pole again though..should be intresting.

    Looking forward to a close race between the top 6 cars this weekend!

  8. Man its tough!!

  9. Lewis for Pole and Race Win!
