New circuit, so a bit hard to guess. Enclosed, but looks to have some faster bits, so I'm guessing Williams may have the edge over Red Bull:

Winner: Nico Rosberg
Second: Lewis Hamilton
Third: Valtteri Bottas
Fourth: Sebastian Vettel
Fifth: Daniel Ricciardo
Sixth: Fernando Alonso
Seventh: Jenson Button
Eighth: Felipe Massa
Ninth: Nico Hulkenberg
Tenth: Kevin Magnussen
Pole: Nico Rosberg

:D Hullo Thaddeus! It looks like you and I are the only folks this year to keep up the conversation down under. I don't do FB so this is the place I like to make my picks (and reasons). This week, as usual, you and I have the mercs in front but in a different order.

1. Lewis Hamilton because I think he has got Nico's number now.
2. Nico will try, but not be able to keep up.
3. Fernando Alonso will drag his red sled up onto the podium again. I sure hope he finds his way to a real racing team next year.
4. Magnussen because he seems to have found his feet on this course.
5.Bottas, because I am sentimental about Wms.
6. Button, although he may end up ahead of his partner.
7. Vettel, and I sure hope he hasn't been drinking Ferrari koolade!
8. Raikkonen but he may well surprise us yet again
9. Kvyat, to please the local fans
10. Massa, although I think it's a toss up between he and Perez

Pole: Lewis Hamilton will be back on form this week.
My Racing Gods: Fangio, Vukovich; Senna & Mears --all racers all the time; graceful winners & generous in defeat, but never giving up!!

Got to say I'm still surprised there are so many people taking part in the competition and almost nobody commenting on the forum.
