      3 cars on the same slot? Maybe they can try a pile-up ala Maldonado style.

  2. 86 points in the first 12 races. Then 152 in the next 6. Really wish I had got my act together earlier.

  3. I prediction Hamilton car failure, Rosberg wins race and chamionship, the internet explodes.

    1. That’s funny, I predict a grand chelem for Lewis after Rosberg fluffs his start, gets a puncture and loses the front wing in the lap 1 melee. Drops to the back leaving Lewis to lead every single lap and cross the line with at least 30s to Bottas in 2nd with Vettel in 3rd (I think Rosberg makes it to 5th in the end.)

      Or not…

      1. Pole for Lewis, Rosberg does a ‘Spa’ and wins the race :P

  4. Tipped with my heart on this one!
