  1. putting Maldonado 5th, hope it works out! :)

  2. Any news regarding DRS Zone at Malaysia GP ?

  3. okay, I’m trying now (honestly, I wasn’t trying before) so I should get 50 points this weekend :/

  4. Lewis, Schuey, Jense, Seb, Grosjean

  5. I got 1.Lewis, 2.Schumey, 3.jenson, 4.kimi & 5.Seb. But that was before i heard about the 5 place grid drop for kimi ggggrrrrr!!!!

    1. @scribbler You can still change your prediction, up until Qualifying :)

      1. Nah I Still think he has a chance. Plus im lazy and can’t be ***** ;-)

  6. He got destroyed last weekend, but I’m going for Lewis still. Then Vettel, Rosberg, Button and Webber

  7. Alonso, mschumacher,kimmi, button, rosberg. Because it will rain

    1. i wish that too

  8. Button Lewis Vettel Rosberg Schui….remember you saw it first here !!!

  9. Lewis, Schumy, Button, Vettel, Alonso…

  10. Lewis, Vettel, Button, Alonso, Rosberg
    Hopefully Webber doesn’t end up winning..

    1. And the reason for not wanting Webber to win?

  11. Lewis and Mclaren front row and race because I hate Mclaren and all associated with them so hope I bring them all the bad luck I bring sports teams and individuals I predict to win. The 2 of them coming together would be awsome and hopefully destabalise Mclaren until my beloved Ferrari can challenge again possibly as early as the turn of the 22nd century.

  12. Keeping the same old wishfull strategy… Come on Schumi!

  13. Can’t really go against Lewis this week. Especially after practise. Think he is too determined to let anyone past. Jenson will complete a Mclaren 1-2 in my opinion. I want to say Schuey to grab a podium, but I think the Red Bull will be too strong. So Vettel 3rd and Schumacher 4th. Even with that 5 place penalty, Kimi will have another strong race and finish 5th. Webber/Rosberg/Grosjean/Alonso may spoil the party though. :)

  14. I got nothing,totally oblivious ….

  15. Good lord I’m awful at this :(

    Rosberg for pole?

    1. There should be a competition of who is the most awesomely awful.

  16. Went conservative after only 7 points in Melbourne. I’ve gone for 2 Mclarens, 2 Red Bulls and a Mercedes (NR, but may still change that).

    24th March 2012, 0:05

    Lewis surely.

  18. Kind of funny that myself and 4 others in the comments have Schumacher splitting Lewis and Button for 1st and 3rd respectively.

  19. qualifying I think will be hami on pole, with jenson schumacher and nico all very close in 2nd-4th

    race I see jenson coming through to win with vettel 2nd. I’m going to say schumacher 3rd just because I hope he gets a podium and we all know he is the rainmeister

  20. yep, that is going to be what could throw a spanner in the works.
    with Vettel moaning about his car “I would love the car to be a bit more predictable and stable”
    i am not sure if he will be able to fend off some of the lower ranking drivers,
    personally i think this is going to be a shocker when the rain comes down,
    how many outsiders make better decisions will depend on how they finish.
    Hamilton Button Ricciardo Webber Alonso
    seeing any of the lower teams in the top 5 will be a shakeup,
    they can do it with the right strategy.

  21. Just guessing I swear I stress about this all week (and I don’t stress about anything)

  22. Dammit!! The site won’t let me enter predictions (2nd week in a row!)
    Firefox 10.0.2 (nothing else other than script sentry, and everything has been enabled and multiple refreshes.)

    Anyway, here’s my pred’s for everyone to see:
    Race: Malay
    PoleT: 1:40.2
    Pole: Vettel
    P1: Button
    P2: Ham
    P4: Alonso
    P5: Kimi

    Going with Rosberg on pole and Button for win…until i change it again. Just cant decide which way it might go.

  24. Hamilton,Button,Webber,Roseberg,Kimi

  25. Button to win. High chance the rain is going to scupper things up and I trust him more than most in the wet. I stuck Schumacher on the podium. Fingers crossed!

    1:36.077 pole time.

  26. again, like in oz, I can’t enter the competition for some reason.

  27. Well so far so good for me with pole-sitter, would have been damn close to pole time as well if Hamilton hadn’t locked-up in the last corner. HAM, BUT, VET, RAI, WEB for the race.

  28. Well, I’ve nailed down 2 points already for this week. Thank you Lewis, for the pole win. Now I just need … Hamilton, Button, Vettel, Alonso, Webber for a perfect score! Easy stuff!
