  1. Just a quick note, the Full-Season poster highlighted above is no longer in stock (though more may become available before the end of the season). There’s still plenty of other A3 posters for the winner to choose from next week though, and as usual I’ll give the winner a heads up.

    Good luck everyone.

  2. Hamilton and Vettel seem to out in front at the moment, in qualifying pace at least, so I went for HAM VET ALO. Next up, Button should get on the pace, so BUT fourth and then it could really be anyone. Webber in the other Red Bull doesn’t like this track, so I went for DIR in fifth, as the Force India seems to go well here, and DiResta had his best race here last year.

  3. Alonso and Vettel have never finished outside of the top 5 here, in 4 races.

    1. One of Alonso’s “victories” here was a highly manipulated race. Strangely enough Teflonso wasn’t punished for it, despite his strategy being highly illogic, unless he and his race-engineer knew what was going to happen.

  4. Can I suggest introducing a new element of the predictions championship –
    Who will Maldonado drive into?

    I pick Massa

    1. ;-)
      How about Grosjean – he is back this weekend, hopefully a little more cautious, but we don’t know how cautious, till after the first few corners.

    2. Irony would be if someone else drives into MAL, I would prefer Perez to do that! :-)

  5. I tried Vettel-Alonso-Hamilton podium :-)
    Can we get this time?

  6. I predict that Jerome D\’Ambrosio to win take pole position and win. It’s possible, apparently. :P

  7. Vettel-Hamilton-Button-Alonso and finally Maldonado as a shot in the dark surprise.

  8. I would dare to put Maldonado in my Top 5 if the chance of him crashing or being sent a couple of rows back wasn’t so damn high.

  9. I have a feeling it’s red bulls weekend but have a strange feeling that Lewis won’t finish the race so I didn’t include him in my top 5. I think it’ll be Vet, Alo, Web, But, Rai.

  10. Hamilton, Vettel, Button,Alonso, Weber

  11. Button, Hamilton, Vettel, Perez, Alonso

    Vettel to take pole

  12. Vettel. Who else could I go for?! I’ve also gone for him to win as well. I reckon at any other track they would probably lose out to a McLaren but this place is so tight I don’t think many will get a chance to overtake, especially if Vettel is quick off the line and escapes the DRS zone.

  13. And I still don’t receive an e-mail confirmation of my predictions.

    Could the fact that I use Opera browser matter in this case?
