Alright, I'll fire the first salvo here. Here are my submitted picks for the round of Germany.

1st:Kimi Raikkonen(he can't have three blown engines in a row)
2nd:Michael Schumacher(his luck's got to be getting better...)
3rd:Fernando Alonso(his run of success has to stop occasionally)
4th:Juan Pablo Montoya(again, no podium for JPM)
5th:Jenson Button(as in Britain...like this'll keep him at BAR for 06')
6th:Jarno Trulli(once again, Toyota loses to Honda...just like in the States')
7th:Rubens Barrichello(this time, Ferrari'll score more pts. than Renault)
8th:Nick Heidfeld(hey, someone has to take the last pt.)

Pole:Kimi Raikkonen(maybe this round, the engine won't have a catastrophic failure)

These will probably change, but for now :
JPM....The initial inertia caused by his weight converts to mass on the move=energy, giving him a power advantage, which when coupled with the moveable ballast he carries, enhances corner exit speed.
Alonso....has the best Renault, even Villenueve could qualify it second.
Button..... The BAR engineers have replaced his bladder with a secret fuel reservoir.
Webber ....most of the aerodynamic aids fall off on the first corner, and he gains half a second a lap.
Nick..... BMW give him a "special" engine for the German GP, but his aero aids don't fall off.
DC.....Threatens the Ferrari engineers with "Grevious bodily harm" , so they give him Schueys engine, saying...." he was going to get it when Schuey retires after this race anyway".
Trulli...the Toyota runs out of fuel as he crosses the line.
Karthy...instead of eating Tendulkars bananas, he shoves them in the fuel tank, and gets a 20% power boost
Sato....would have done better but forgot about the "engineering changes" and went to the toilet before "Q"
Kimi...actually sets fastest time, but bad luck comes in threes.
