Well, I have considered, discarded my initial thoughts and then settled on this proposed result for the inaugural European Grand Prix in Baku.

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

My feeling is that this is a power circuit on which you cannot hide a lack of performance.
Nico and Lewis are so even in performance that the decision on the victor has been made with the driver with the greatest outright speed getting the nod.
Sebastian Vettel is fast in the Ferrari and will probably finish very close to the leading duo (providing they don't take each other out).
After Canada, Massa will be looking for redemption. With that, I think 4th will be as close as he can get.
Next are the Red Bull duo. Young Max is really getting under Daniels skin with his raw speed in practice. Daniel then chucks in a quick lap in qualifying to put the kid back in his place. The lack of raw speed from the Renault power plant will be the thing to hold them back.
Bottas will again finish in the points but will struggle a little on this new circuit.
Kimi...... His is in a great set of wheels and usually gets home in the points. This will be another of those efforts.
You can basically pick any 2 of the remaining drivers to finish in the points. I don't think that Renault, Sauber or Manor will be there so take your pick.

These are mine for Baku. What are yours?

Call me Mad Jack McMad, but I think the rubbishy mostly slow street circuit will suit Red Bull a lot.

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

Also, Perez is good on street circuits and it, relatively, helps McLaren as well.
