So far 10 'n' Pole players are predicting a close fight for the win between Hamilton and Verstappen. At the time of writing, 46.67% of players have picked Hamilton to win while 42.22% have picked Verstappen.

You can check the picks for all positions here

Always difficult to predict at the start of the season. Yet to consider mine!

Well, I might as well skew the tipping towards Verstappen.

Winner: Max Verstappen
Second: Lewis Hamilton
Third: Sergio Perez
Fourth: Valtteri Bottas
Fifth: Daniel Ricciardo
Sixth: Pierre Gasly
Seventh: Lando Norris
Eighth: Charles Leclerc
Ninth: Carlos Sainz
Tenth: Sebastian Vettel
Pole: Max Verstappen

Following the pre-season testing, I feel that Red Bull and Verstappen will finish on the top tier on the podium. Lewis will overcome some of the Mercedes shortcomings that reared their head in the test but will not trouble Max this time out.

I'm really unsure of the Valtteri/Sergio/Daniel picks. They could end anywhere. Daniel the racer, Sergio can graft out a result and Valtteri will just bring it home with the minimal amount of fuss.

Rumours have it that McLaren were sandbagging and given the loophole that only them exploited they could be up there!

I just find it hard to believe that Mercedes have gone backwards given that the rule changes were relatively small but always hoping for a two way or even a 3 way battle .... we can dream!
