For those not aware, Daniil Kvyat and Max Verstappen have swapped seats. Daniil Kvyat goes back to Toro Rosso while Max Verstappen moves to Red Bull from the Spanish Grand Prix.

My picks are in and these be them.

Winner: Nico Rosberg
Second: Lewis Hamilton
Third: Sebastian Vettel
Fourth: Felipe Massa
Fifth: Valterri Bottas
Sixth: Kimi Raikkonen
Seventh: Daniel Ricciardo
Eighth: Daniil Kvyat
Ninth: Max Verstappen
Tenth: Romain Grosjean
Pole: Nico Rosberg

Following last years domination of this race and his current form, it has to be Nico home first. Lewis is under the pump at the moment and this race will just add to his frustration.

Ferrari will be represented on the podium with Sebastian Vettel avoiding any lap 1 mayhem.

I feel that Williams will do something at this race weekend and will finish in positions 4 and 5.

Then, Kimi. He still shows moments of brilliance but just isn't showing it on a regular basis. P6

Next is the battle of the red bulls. Ricciardo will finish at the top of this trio closely followed by Daniil Kvyat proving that he doesn't need the Red Bull under his bum to beat young Max.

10th could be any one of many but I have gone for the Ferrari powered Hass of Grosjean to again get a point.

Well, these are mine. What are your thoughts.....

Could be wrong, but I think Red Bull will be better than Williams at this circuit.

Hamilton's due to a hundredweight of good luck (for that matter, so's Vettel).

Winner: Lewis Hamilton
Second: Nico Rosberg
Third: Sebastian Vettel
Fourth: Max Verstappen
Fifth: Daniel Ricciardo
Sixth: Kimi Raikkonen
Seventh: Valterri Bottas
Eighth: Fernando Alonso
Ninth: Sergio Perez
Tenth: Jenson Button
Pole: Lewis Hamilton

If we leave Max(Torro Rosso) in from a previous pick do we get Max (Red Bull) or his Torro rosso alternate (Daniil)

The picks are calculated on driver rather than team so if a driver moves mid-season, your picks will follow his name, not his team.

Good question though.
