:D Well, Friends:

I have slipped out of the top 100 (I was 'Monza-ed' by Ross Braun's brilliant strategy!), so I am picking this week based on my feelings and hunches; hardly any logic, since that seems to be mocked by the racing Gods!

So I am picking Jenson in the Braun to win :1st: --and put 'paid' to his critics.
Following him will be the Iceman in his Ferrari :2nd: --also making his critics gnash their teeth
and :3rd: place on the podium will go to the Hambone in his McLaren, if he can keep it on the circuit! :roll:
And, because I love him, I'm picking Mark Webber :bounce: for Fourth, ahead of his more beloved team-mate for a change...
Fifth Place will go to Rubens B. in the other Braun, victim of some early race bad luck (read, flubbed clutch pedal) :oops:
Sixth goes to Heikki in the other silver Merc (he's usually six places behind his team mate! :(
Seventh place will be Robert Kubica's --if the BMW engine doesn't fall out or the gear box explode :alright:
and the final point (for 8th place) will be Fernando's --in the :oops: :oops: Renault scheme-mobile 8) 8)

the Pole, for once, will be Jenson's :clap:

I wish I could say I was looking forward to this ridiculous parade in the streets at night!
