I think that my tips for this weekend will definitely give Jim Watt a good and hearty laugh.
Not sure why I think the Kimster can pull a win but there it is ..... and I am not one to question the ancient art of F1 tip picking.

:D :D Well, JacFan, I had a hunch Kimi could win in Brazil, and, since I have fallen to overall rank of 139, I even considered picking him. But then I checked the weather in Sao Paulo. They're showing R-A-I-N for the entire weekend, so...

I think Seb. Vettel :1st: will pip Lewis H. for the win. In order to win the WDC, the German has to win both in Brazil and Abu Whatever [Bernie E's :evil: latest WUNDERTRACK :roll:] so he will go all out; Lewis will probably just be out done by the kid. :burnout:

So that makes a Silver Merc/McLaren :2nd: on the podium (I can't wait for Kimi to come and play J.P. Montoya to Lewis's Mikka H.! :lol:)

:3rd: will go to the local fav, old man Rubens Barrichello in his RossBraunMobile :woohoo:

and behind him, just off the podium, in Fourth Place, will be the OTHER Braun/Merc, driven by Mr. Drama himself, Jenson Button :roll:. Will that be enough to clinch his WDC? I hope not, for Seb's sake.

Fifth Spot, if he can keep the car on the track and keep the engine running, should go to the Hard Luck King, Mark Webber in the other Red Bull.:drive:

Sixth, because he's not the best rain meister will be :super: Kimi Raikkonen in what they persist in calling a Ferrari :alright:

Seventh place will be Fernando's :shine: ... will there be ANY sponsors on the Pariah mobile? Maybe a [Diet] Pepsi Cola sticker? 8)

and the final point for Eighth should go to the Hard Luck Prince, Robert Kubica in whatever Peter S. is calling his machine these days. I just hope BMW remembers to bring some engines to Brazil....8)

The Pole will be the :lucky: Hambone's; I predict he'll be behind Seb V. on the track and just pip him at the end. :clap:

Looking forward to some excitement for a change and sincerely hope JacFan's crystal ball is good!

Jim Watt :cheers:
