Looks like I'm first to post picks for the Round of Bahrain.........................

1st} Lewis Hamilton(who's this Alonso character I keep hearing about........... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :mrgreen: )
2nd} Nick Heidfeld(proving BMW-Sauber's for real this year....... :shock: :shock: 8) )
3rd} Felipe Massa(that's what I keep thinking, Hamilton......who is this Alonso anyway? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: )
4th} Fernando Alonso(.........why I am stuck in 4th this week? :evil: :shock: :shock: :shock: )
5th} Heikki Kovalainen(......at least Hamilton won this week........... :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :P )
6th} Jarno Trulli(................. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: ..............)

8th} Robert Kubica(hey, somebody's gotta' finish 8th......this week its' Kubica's turn!!! :lol: :lol: :shock: )

And for pole position..............Kimi Raikkonen




Now, I know what you're thinking..........he's gone off the rails; he didn't pick Raikkonen for a points-paying position? There's a simple reason...........everyone has a bad race every so often..........this week its' the Iceman's turn. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

You have registered the following picks :
Winner : Lewis Hamilton
He seems eager to come to Bahrein, I think he'll have the pace.

Second : Kimi Raikkonen
The champion cannot do worse than second... He will be flying at the end to try and take on Lewis

Third : Felipe Massa
A solid third for Ferrari

Fourth : Nick Heidfeld
The other BMW inviting itself in the front posts after Kubica last round

Fifth : Heikki Kovalainen
Not a great race for Heikki, tyre problems

Sixth : Fernando Alonso
The other champion does quite well indeed. The circuit offers overtaking opportunities!

Seventh : David Coulthard
Red Bull Racing is in good form, experience counts on the Sakhir

Eighth : Jarno Trulli
Trulli ends in 8th place after brilliant qualifications and a good race in a quick Toyota

Pole : Felipe Massa
Ferrari impresses in qualifications, with Massa leading the charge

:crush:
What's Up, Here? No Jay Vee? No Julian?? I hope M Little's wrong; Kimi has three thirds IN A ROW in the desert; I think he's MORE THAN DUE :furious:

So. Here's me picks:

:1st: The Kimster finally gets a Bahrain Top Step (just hope he remembers that it ain't Champagne they're spraying. He'll have to wait till he gets to the garage :drink:

:2nd: His Loyal Little Friend, Fast Phil in the other Ferrari (that is if he can keep from spinning his speedy ride into a sand dune! Indeed, he'd BETTER. Or the Maranello Men will be looking for another chauffer! They're in a WAR this year with McLaren and can't afford to throw away points any more!)

:3rd: Cool Lewis will get McLaren some podium glory :drive:

4th Place: Speedy :super: Robert K. in the BMW/Sauber!

5th: Der Neat Nick H. in the other BMW/Sauber :updown:

6th: Two-Time WDC Fernando Alonso will D-R-A-G his Ray NO across the line on sheer talent! :ladysman:

7th: trying to get to the pits as soon as possible, the OTHER Finn Heikki in the other McLaren, picking up a couple of points --and der Ron Dennis VILL NOT BE HAPPY with the junior driver :evil:

8th: Jarno Trulli will try to save Toyota again and once again dip into his skill and luck bag :lucky:

the Pole (at LAST!!) will go to the Kimster because Felipe will still be nervous about his rear end stepping out on him

I am READY for Formula One to find its way back to Europe and some actual circuits that really test driver and machine!

:oops: :oops: :oops2: :oops: :oops:

I just got my picks on my email and I discovered that I lost my nerve at the last moment and put Felipe in for the Pole!

I hope I am wrong about that; I REALLY REALLY want Kimi to beat him in the qually game.
