Well, I think that the 2 main combatants in this years championship will again rise to the top.
Just which one will triumph, we will have to see after the race.

So, here are my picks for Azerbaijan '18.

Winner: Sebastian Vettel:- At home with his car
Second: Lewis Hamilton:- Struggling but will get the best out of it
Third: Kimi Raikkonen:- Kimi seems to drive well when his car suits him. This is where he is at at this time
Fourth: Daniel Ricciardo:- Hot off the heels of his last win and the currently the only winner of the Azerbaijan GP, this is as good as it gets
Fifth: Max Verstappen:- Max just has to finish
Sixth: Valtteri Bottas:- Just doesn't have the aggression to consistently run at the front.
Seventh: Kevin Magnussen:- The Haas is a much better car and KMag is ahead of his teammate mentally
Eighth: Fernando Alonso:- The McLaren does have some short comings. It wasn't just last year's power unit
Ninth: Esteban Ocon:- Force India ran well last year.
Tenth: Carlos Sainz:- Renault is on the improve but so is the entire mid field. It's so much harder to get to the front of he pack
Pole: Sebastian Vettel: It will be a Ferrari on pole. Will it be this one?

So, here are mine, what say you?

:D Dear CMLEAN:

I'm in agreement with you about most of the picks, but I think Romain Grosjean will be quicker than Kevin for this race. Here are my picks:
1. Sebastien Vettel will manage his tyres this time and the team had better manage his pit stops! :oops:
2. Lewis Hamilton will start from 2cd and finish 2cd, but the Merc will struggle on this crazy circuit
3. Kimi Raikkonen may well win this race; if he can manage the pole :bouncec:
4. Valteri Bottas will manage to challenge for the podium, but the Ferrari will handle better. 8)
5. Daniel Ricciardo was lucky in China; he won't be lucky in Azerbaijan like he was last year though :x
6. Max Verstappen will drive carefully and get points for RBR for a change :cheers:
7. Nico Hulkenberg will beat Fernando again :bouncey:
8.Fernando will drag the McLaren into the points again; he's the equal of the first five, but his car is NOT :|
9. Carlos Sainz will almost match his team-mate and Renault may well surprise RBR in this race! :D
10. Romain Grosjean will have the handle at last, but last year's Ferrari engine isn't good enough to beat Renault :x

The car on the pole will be Sebastian Vettel's.

Let's hope it doesn't RAIN!! If it does, all bets are OFF
My Racing Gods: Fangio, Vukovich; Senna & Mears --all racers all the time; graceful winners & generous in defeat, but never giving up!!
