Not sure Williams will live up to their Austrian performance. They've got the power, but not the chassis. On that basis I also expect Red Bull to do well.

:D I agree with CMLean and Thaddeus that no one will be able to keep up with Lewis; He'll take the pole and fastest lap, too. So here are the rest of my picks:

1. Lewis Hamilton, Merc, (and this is the race where he closes up on his team mate, b/c I'm calling for a DNF for little Nico. 8))
2. Fernando Alonso (because he's simply the best driver on the grid and, evidently the chaps at Maranello have found some horsepower for him)
3. Ricciardo, RBR (this kid is the real thing much to Seb's dismay)
4. Vettel (he may get by the kid ahead, but he'll need to be VERY careful not to take the team out doing so! :oops: )
5. Raikkonen, Ferrari (but only if he manages a good qualification slot!)
6. Jenson Button (how embarrassing for Ron Dennis to be down in the lower points! :oops: :oops: 8))
7. Magnussun, (I like this chap's adaptability; he should get a car that's competitive :evil: ()
8. Bottas in his Williams should score points, but the last race was really an exceptional thing not to be repeated :( )
9. Massa (if his rebuilt car is able to get into the fifth or sixth row)
10. Perez (the Merc should pull him into the points)
Pole: Lewis will scorch his team-mate
My Racing Gods: Fangio, Vukovich; Senna & Mears --all racers all the time; graceful winners & generous in defeat, but never giving up!!
