My unsavvy gut feeling is Bottas out qualifying Massa P1 and P4. Raikonnen P2 Alonso P3. Hamilton P5 Magnussen P6 Rosberg (edit)P7 Button P8 Kvyat P9 Vettel p10.

Crossing the chequered flag Vettel Raikonnen Alonso. Against all media odds Vettel winning his 10th consecutive gp, will be unofficially acknowledged as the MFWIC.

ThePaddock1: @@bluetusk i take it you forgot rosberg in your top ten as he has infact got a very very good chance of making the top ten!

My gamble is brake cooling affecting Force India or an incorrectly installed part. Bad luck is a cruel mistress

Rosberg is a Merc driver not Force India


My mistake. Not even 06:30 here.

I guess Mercedec with Rosberg for pole and think it will be even stephen between Williams Ferrari and McLaren, both internally and between the teams. Possible that Force India will be in the mix as well.

As a Ferrari and Aloso/Kimi fan, I do hope that they have been sandbagging and will leave the rest in the dust. Didn't they record the highest top speeds during winter testing? Hopefully they haver sorted their braking issues or was it rear down force :S

EdOz: The weirdest pat will be qually meaning next to nothing to a driver's race pace... can't remember last time that happened.


When has qualifying EVER been any indication of race pace? Honestly, peoples obsession with qualifying and pole position is utterly stupid. Their insistance that qualifying is a true indication of a drivers pace is even more ridiculous.

How is one or two laps on low fuel in any way, shape or form any indication of a drivers pace when the only way he can win points and the silverware is by driving 50+ laps on full fuel?

Its like saying that a boxer is the best in the world simply because he can punch the hardest. Utterly ridiculous!
