Well, for the final time in 2018, here are my picks

Your Pick
Winner: Valtteri Bottas
Second: Lewis Hamilton
Third: Sebastian Vettel
Fourth: Kimi Raikkonen
Fifth: Max Verstappen
Sixth: Daniel Ricciardo
Seventh: Sergio Perez
Eighth: Kevin Magnussen
Ninth: Romain Grosjean
Tenth: Charles Leclerc
Pole: Valtteri Bottas

Bottas is deserving of a win in 2018. With that, I am giving it to him. I think Lewis may as well.
The rest seem to follow the season end performances. I have omitted the Renault's. Don't ask why but they never crossed my mind.

:burnout: :D :D Well, CM LEAN, it's been a lonesome year on this forum and, since I'm a Ferrari fan, a disappointing one. The Red Cars should definitely begin the next season with black stripes on the front wings. :evil: :evil:

I'm picking Max Verstappen to win at Abu dhabi (not that it matters much since the race is always so boring) :roll: :roll:
Second place will go to Lewis Hamiton who will graciously praise Max as step number one in next year's quest for Number Six :cheers:
the last step on the podium will be Valteri Bottas's, though he won't be gracious about it :oops:
Fourth place will be claimed by Kimi Raikkonen, just to stick it to Maranello, or maybe he'll even out-break Valteri and steal a podium place :clap: :clap: Fifth place will be Sebastian Vettel's a appropriate end for a miserable season of bad luck and poor team management :( :(
Sixth place will be Romain Grosjean's and he'll be all smiles for Haas :lol:
Seventh place will belong to Nico Hulkenberg, dragging the lousy Renault chassis into the points again :cry:
Eighth place will go to carlos Sainz in the other terrible Renault :cry: :cry: (Will the Renault Team show up next year??)
Ninth place will be Magnussun in the other Haas
and the last point will go to poor Ocon who, it appears, is out of luck as things stand today :(

The Pole will be, finally, Max Verstappen's :bouncec: :bouncey: :bounce:

Perez will end the season ignominiously and both Force Canada {?!?] and Red Bull teams will be wondering why they've put Perez and Gasly in their machines. I'm being quiet about Maranello which, I believe, is headed in the same direction lately taken by McLaren. :roll: :roll:

Actually, I'm wondering if by the time we get to Montreal next year, there won't suddenly be a seat for Estban. Merry Christmas!! :burnout:
My Racing Gods: Fangio, Vukovich; Senna & Mears --all racers all the time; graceful winners & generous in defeat, but never giving up!!
