:D Well, CM Lean; it appears you and I are the only ones bothering to post our picks. :wink: Who knows what this means? Anyway, things are so tight these days I have to resort to history to justify my picks.

1. Lewis will win his fifth Chinese GP and begin to eat into Seb's points (and Seb's only won China 2 times most recently in '16) :evil:
2. Sebastian will lose the drag race to the first turn and repeat last year's China GP :cheers:
3. Bottas, if he can keep his machine in one piece, will get the last step on the podium after being beaten at the start by Vettel :roll:
4. Raikkonen will not be able to push fellow Finn Bottas into an error and be just off the podium :oops:
5.And, unless he figures out how to wreck his RedBull, Verstappen will shadow Raikkonen for fifth :clap:
6. Daniel Ricciardo will not be able to match his team-mate's pace and be lucky to get sixth (is he trying to convince Seb he'' be another version of Kimi next year?) :P
7. Nico Hulkenberg will continue to make Renault look like a contender (he's the driver Ferrari should be looking at!) :bouncec:
8.Carlos Sainz's Renault will nudge Alonso's Renault powered McLaren for eighth place and show how bad McLaren really is :bounce:
9.Alonso's smile will be strained all week-end and he'll wonder if the money was worth choosing McLaren when it was determined to follow Williams into obscurity and memories of past glory :( :(
10. I'm picking Gasley to add another point to his total for purely sentimental reasons :)

And the Pole will go to Lewis who should be really hungry by now :burnout:

Let's hope the race is as good as last week's and the weather co-operates to keep everyone safe.

Maybe people take it too seriously Jim and don't want others to know their picks. :D
