:D Greetings Friends: Since Everyone else thinks Lewis has it sewed up now, I feel the need to go out on a limb and predict that the title will not be decided, fully, till Brazil (I cd be wrong here, not taking the time to tote up the numbers and see if Lewis can lock it up with five points in China), be that as it may, I am hoping for a sunny race in Shanghai. If the track is dry, as Lloyd pointed out, this is a red car circuit. So....

:1st: KIMI will win going away, causing them to dance in the streets of Maranello!
:2nd: Felipe will follow him in ANOTHER red car (if necessary, by pulling over. Team orders? Oh no, nothing like that!!)
:3rd: the (defending) WDC FERNANDO ALONSO will be :lucky: enough to make it to the podium ahead of his team mate
4th: Lewis the :angel: will be all smiles (He is SO like Michael, it's SPOOKY, ain't it?)
5th: :super: Nick the Quick will be hoping that back at BMW they are building next year's car just a little faster...
6th: Robert Kubica will be hoping ditto :burnout:
7th: And :lucky:HEIKKI will be hoping that Flav has a speedy car coming for him next year, too
8th: Finally --:smokin:-- Here is my wild card pick. I think it's time for Jarno Trulli to be a little lucky this year. After last week, anything is possible, remember...

POLE: :wave: KIMI will be smoking!

This has been, (Nigel Stepney aside) just an excellent year; one to talk about for years to come. So I'll be watching with my friend Simon Kenyon (a Williams fan) and enjoying the chance to get even with him for last weeks' playing of his national anthem!

:drink: Jim Watt :cheers:
