I might as well put out my best guestimate. I haven't done that well so far this season.

Winner: Max Verstappen
Second: Lewis Hamilton
Third: Valtteri Bottas
Fourth: Sergio Perez
Fifth: Lando Norris
Sixth: Charles Leclerc
Seventh: Carlos Sainz
Eighth: Daniel Ricciardo
Ninth: Pierre Gasly
Tenth: Sebastian Vettel
Pole: Max Verstappen

The big question is 'When will Red Bull stop shooting themselves in the foot?'
Sure, they are leading both championships but they have left so many points on the table.
Time to finish what you have started before Mercedes get their act together.

Greetings CM Lean (and thank you for guiding me back! I am posting my ny picks late because I only had time last night to submit them and no time for the forum. Here are my picks & reasons:
1. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) Now Michael Schumacher won the French Grand Prix 8 times (Eight!) so Lewis Hamilton won the last two (2018 &19) so he HAS TO win to have any chance to make it even half way to Michael's record (I am assuming he will only race a couple more seasons)
2 Max Verstappen always assuming his tyres don't fail! Indeed if Max didn't have bad luck, we wouldn't have any l;uck at all!
3.Valteri Bottas --unless his pit crew falls asleep again (Toto: is the company too cheap to field two decent crews?
4. Sergio Perez You know already how lucky and good he is. And he could do a black to back!
5. Fernando Alonso --is Renault really back?! Or was he running Nitro on Friday? [just kidding]
6. Daniel Ricciardo (I still haven't given up on Danny!
7.Charles Le Clerc (I love the red cars and wish anyone driving them well ... but in F1 Reality Rules!
8. Esteban Ocon I'm still not sure about Ocon. (I just widh that Nico Hulkenberg had somebody sponsoring him lile Lando!)
9. Lando Norris This kid is better than his record and this race could be the one for him to move into the top five, but is the team good enough?
10. Pierre Gasly The Honda power makes me wonder why Pierre has had such bad luck so far.

I'm skipping the emoticons and so on because I just wanted to supply anyone bothering to read my picks (oh yes, speaking of picks, I chose Lewis to win the pole and by God he almost did!

looking forward to a good race tomorrow and hope it rains! if it does Lwwis and Max will lap more than half the field and maybe Seb Vettel will get some more points!

cheers, jim watt in Durango, Colorado
