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

I don't see that Mercedes will have the same catastrophic failures again. It was 1955 when both Mercedes failed to finish due to mechanical issues.
The normal equilibrium should return however there are numerous connotations that could still occur.
Red Bull, with their Renault's party mode, could qualify closer to the front.
Haas are on the pace and Leclerc still manages to finish in the points.

:D Well, CMLEAN and I are in total agreement on the podium. And I agree that Ferrari can't count on another failure from Stutgart! 8) Indeed, a look at history suggests it will be a 'ho hum' weekend indeed: Mercedes Benz has won the British Grand Prix at Silverstone the last five years in a row and the last four have been won by Lewis Hamilton.

In those five years the best Ferrari has managed is:
in 2013: Fernando Alonso finished 3rd and Felipe Massa finished 6th for Ferrari
in 2014 Lewis and Valteri finished 1-2 & Fernando Alonso finished 6th (Kimi Raikkonen DNF)
in 2015 Lewis Hamilton & Nico Rosberg finished 1-2 and Sebastian Vettel finished 3rd; Kimi Raikkonen was one lap down in 8th
in 2016 Lewis was 1st & Nico 3rd (Max Verstappen in a Red Bull was second); Kimi Raikkonen was fifth and Sebastion, 9th
and last year, 2017, Lewis and Valteri were 1-2, Kimi was 3rd and Sebastian 7th

In fact, you have to go back to 2009 to find Sebastian's only win at Silverstone --and it was in a Red Bull!
Only Kimi has won Silverstone recently in a Ferrari ---and that was in 2007 when 2cd and 3rd were taken by Alonso abd Hamilton in McLaren-Mercedes cars.

So here are my picks --and I hope I don't fall asleep watching the race (maybe it will rain really hard and get interesting? :bouncec: :bouncey: :bounce:

1. Hamilton MERC
2. Bottas MERD
3. Raikkonen FERRARi
4. Verstappen RED BULL
5. Vettel FERRARI
6. Ricciardo RED BULL
7. Perez FORCE INDIA
8. Grosjean HASS
9. Magnussun HASS
10. Ocon FORCE INDIA

Pole: Hamilton

Austria was actually fun to watch, but don't hold your breath on sunday
