  1. Hamilton for pole position and Vettel for the win.

  2. Just to clarify again, the pole time we’re predicting is the time set by the person who is quickest in Q3 right? Whereas the person for “Pole” is the person starting from pole position?

    Trying to recall how this is regarded, in the event that, say, Webber gets the quickest time in Q3.

      @czhihong @hamilfan Um, guys, isn’t the person who is the quickest in Q3 the one that starts from pole?

      1. @shreyasf1fan If Webber sets fastest time tomorrow, no. He has a 10 place grid penalty, so he’ll start 11th.

        This has happened many times before, even for pole position (Schumacher in Monaco 2012 and Hamilton in Spain 2012 come to mind immediately), but I can’t remember how this is sorted out.

          @czhihong Okay I hadn’t thought of that, I get your point now. But I guess Webber’s chances of being fastest are slim – especially with Hamilton, Vettel and Rosberg out there.

    2. @czhihong – It’s who gets pole, not the fastest lap. So Webber won’t be the right, even if he sets the fastest Q3 time.

      1. Webber can’t get pole so don’t pick him ! Did anyone actually plan on picking him anyway ?

        1. Yeah, I was! I know the chances are slim, but he did outqualify him here last year, and I was thinking that it was bound to happen at least once or twice in a season, so I was genuinely thinking about it.

          I trawled through the old articles to look for how 2012 Spain and Monaco were handled just to make sure since I remembered (wrongly) that the two incidents were handled differently.

          1. I know the chances are slim, but he did outqualify him here last year

            “him” who shall not be named. :)

    3. @czhihong

      6. In the event of a tie on points the winner will be determined by who is closest to predicting the pole position time correctly.

      I.e. the time belonging to the driver who starts from pole position.

      1. Thanks, Keith.

        I’m going to go for another shock Rosberg pole, just have a hunch about this one.

  3. Fairly standard prediction of Hamilton on pole; Vettel, Hamilton, Alonso, Raikkonen, Rosberg.

  4. Here’s what WILL happen:
    Hamilton snatches pole from vettel in the dying moments. great! i hear you say…
    Not so however: come the race, vettel slipstreams hamilton into turn 3 on lap 1 and cruises to a win. Alonso appears in 2nd and Kimi or Lewis prop up the top 2.

      Looks like you don’t need to watch this weekend.

  5. vettel for the win,then kimi (have a look at his long run pace!!!) ,ham in 3rd, alonso 4th , gro 5th.

    Hamilton on pole (1:37.692)
    P1: Vettel
    P2: Hamilton
    P3: Rosberg
    P4: Alonso
    P5: Webber

  7. Hang on a minute.
    What if i pick Webber to get pole and he somehow gets the fastest time in Q3 but because of his Penalty it doesn’t count as Pole?
    Does it not count as pole them?

    1. No it doesn’t. Pole is defined as the person who starts the race on P1.
