Let's get this show on the road.

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

Lewis is going to bounce back after a fairly distasterous European Grand Prix.
Nico seems a lot stronger mentally however I feel that he will fail to finish at this circuit on the top of the podium for the third successive year.
Sebastian Vettel will be the next best. The power unit is strong and the Ferrari upgrades will come into their own.
Kimi - Which one will turn up this weekend? The racer or the points gathering machine.
Ricciardo seems to get the best out of his Red Bull when it seems nigh on impossible for him to do so.
Bottas seems more in tune with his Williams at this moment so I will go for him over Massa to be the first of these home.
Young Max, after falling from hero to zero at Monaco, seemed to drive well within himself at Baku. Maybe he has heard that you have to finish to get some points.
Nico Hulkenberg, with his Mercedes power, needs to start showing some of the quality that earned him the seat at Force India. This will be the start.
Young Sainz, while quick, seems to get the car home near the points. After Toro Rosso failed to get either of their units home in Baku, there is increased pressure to show that this was an anomily in their program.

Pole. Has to be Lewis.

These are my picks and thoughts. What do you have to say?

Nice work with your Baku picks, cmlean.

Here are my guesses:
Winner: Lewis Hamilton
Second: Nico Rosberg
Third: Sebastian Vettel
Fourth: Valterri Bottas
Fifth: Kimi Raikkonen
Sixth: Nico Hulkenberg
Seventh: Felipe Massa
Eighth: Sergio Perez
Ninth: Daniel Ricciardo
Tenth: Romain Grosjean
Pole: Lewis Hamilton

Interesting to consider how the upgraded Ferrari engine will perform. Also, the Williams/Force India battle. After a weak start, Force India have been going pretty well recently.

Thanks Thaddeus.
There were some decent scores in the round of Baku and I am slowly dropping out of the top 10. Not to matter.
