I'm going out on a limb here. Last year, Nico couldn't get close to Lewis. This year, I feel he may turn it around.

This is still a power circuit and the McLarens and Toro Rossos will struggle to get on the pace.

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

Just how wrong I will be, time will tell. These are mine, what are yours?

Beyond thinking Ferrari will have the legs on Red Bull (they were similar at Spa, and Monza's more about high speed than anything else), a lot of guesswork:
Winner: Lewis Hamilton
Second: Nico Rosberg
Third: Sebastian Vettel
Fourth: Kimi Raikkonen
Fifth: Daniel Ricciardo
Sixth: Nico Hulkenberg
Seventh: Valterri Bottas
Eighth: Sergio Perez
Ninth: Felipe Massa
Tenth: Jenson Button
Pole: Lewis Hamilton

O.K. CMLean & Thaddeus, I'm throwing caution to the wind and expecting an exciting race and bad luck, finally, for Nico Rosberg. I'm not sure how he's going to slip up, but I'm pretty sure he'll struggle once he gets behind wild max in the red bull

Here they are:

1. Hamilton will scamper away from the pole and have an easy drive; everyone else will struggle --the times are so close overtaking is going to demand more than simple speed and Nico is O.K. as long as the wind blows his way, but not in real traffic
2. Vettel will just not be able to catch Lewis, but he should keep most of the trouble behind him
3. Raikkonen will fight his way onto the podium in the last stint
4. Verstappen will be flummoxed by Raikkonen returning the favor to him; if he's lucky, he won't lose it trying to get round the red car
5. Rosberg will limp home gamely probably because of some structural damage or bad pit work
7. Ricciardo will not be lucky this week
8. Alonso will keep McLaren in the points
9. Massa will soldier on and bring points to his team
10. Nico Hulkenberg will sneak just barely into the points

pole: Lewis Hamilton of course

I also would like to see an exciting race. Most this season have been start from pole and control from the front. As for Rosberg, he had his bad luck last year at this event and spent the the rest of the season trying to catch up the points to Lewis. My ideal would be for Rosberg to win this one and then the points are all closed up as we race to the end of the season.
