I might as well lead the way.
These be my picks for the first British GP for 2020.

Winner: Lewis Hamilton
Second: Valtteri Bottas
Third: Max Verstappen
Fourth: Alexander Albon
Fifth: Sergio Perez
Sixth: Lando Norris
Seventh: Lance Stroll
Eighth: Daniel Ricciardo
Ninth: Carlos Sainz
Tenth: Esteban Ocon
Pole: Lewis Hamilton

It's going to be difficult to go past Lewis to dominate this weekend. He is home and he really performs well here.
The downside for him is that so many of these drivers have done their training at this circuit.
I expect his loyal deputy to back him up. Not that he wants to, it's just that second is what the other 19 drivers are racing for.
Probably the next best will be the Red Bulls. Again for the same reasons above.
I just noticed that I overlooked Ferrari. Wisdom says that Charles Leclerc should be in there but, oh well, thems is the breaks.

With the news that Sergio Perez will miss the British Grand Prix, if you have Perez in your picks, you will be scored based on the result of his replacement driver.

Following the driver replacement of Nico Hulkenberg for Sergio Perez, I have decided to update my picks.
It's not substantially different however I have taken the opportunity to also include Charles Leclerc.

Well CM Lean:

I'm happy to see you're supporting Danny R. but I think you're over-rating Charles LeC and under valuing Seb. Here are my picks for the goofiest season of F1 I have EVER seen!

1. Lewis Hamilton No question the best driver is in the best machine with the best team
2. Valteri Bottas is a deserving team member in the best team
3 Max V. I wish he could be in the best car with the best team and learn how Valteri Bottas feels
4. Alex Albon if the kid didn't have bad luck he'd have no luck at all. but maybe this week end the fates will give him a break
5. Lando Norris It's hard to believe that the Renault is in the top five but numbers don't lie
6. Carlos Sainz might ruin Lando's day, but I hope not
7. Danny Ricc in a lame Renault will still beat Maranello's best!
8. Vettel will drag his car across the line ahead of his "team mate" and be all smiles after
9. Charles LeClerc's luck is running out rapidly
10. Esteban Ocon deserves a point just for his driving a Renault.

The Pole will be Lewis's

Here are my picks :D

You have submitted the following picks:

Winner: Lewis Hamilton
Second: Valtteri Bottas
Third: Max Verstappen
Fourth: Sergio Perez
Fifth: Lance Stroll
Sixth: Charles Leclerc
Seventh: Alexander Albon
Eighth: Carlos Sainz
Ninth: Daniel Ricciardo
Tenth: Lando Norris
Pole: Lewis Hamilton

Friday practice times don't mean much and the weather will be much cooler today. Hard to see anyone getting close to Mercedes. Racing Point will do well, after all its the pink Mercedes :wink:

Verstappen will do an impressive job but the Red Bull has an aero problem.

The rest are all very close... Pity Ferrari are that far behind!
