The picks you have entered are:

Winner: Sebastian Vettel

Second: Fernando Alonso

Third: Lewis Hamilton

Fourth: Mark Webber

Fifth: Felipe Massa

Sixth: Kimi Raikkonen

Seventh: Jenson Button

Eighth: Sergio Perez Mendoza

Ninth: Nico Hulkenberg

Tenth: Romain Grosjean

Pole: Sebastian Vettel


Form will depend largely on updates, but I'd be surprised if Red Bull can be stopped now. Whilst not a Ferrari/Alonso fan, for the sake of variety I'd prefer him to taken the title. Vettel's very likeable, but it's time for a change.

Winner : Mark Webber- using the rules of probability hes due for a decent result so why not the win.

Second : Fernando Alonso- He was Mr consistant for most of the season.

Third : Sebastian Vettel- I'm going to regret the order I put the red bull drivers :$

Fourth : Felipe Massa- CMON MASSSSSSSSSSSAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Fifth : Jenson Button- Mr reliable

Sixth : Kimi Raikkonen- Almost didnt have him here but again Mr reliable

Seventh : Sergio Perez Mendoza- Too inconsistant for me

Eighth : Romain Grosjean- Only Spa and Suzuka was his fault and maybe Monaco.

Ninth : Nico Hulkenberg- I like this driver.

Tenth : Kamui Kobayashi- Getting ready to bow out at the end of the season I think.

Pole : Sebastian Vettel :oops: :oops: :oops:

Massa FTW

I did too well last round (3rd position :D) so I am taking corrective action ;)

Last races Red Bull was unbeatable, who's turn is it now? Personally I hope for Lotus as you can see below 8)

I also hope Fernando Alonso will beat Vettel to keep the title race alive.


Winner: Kimi Raikkonen

Second: Fernando Alonso

Third: Sebastian Vettel

Fourth: Romain Grosjean

Fifth: Lewis Hamilton

Sixth: Felipe Massa

Seventh: Sergio Perez Mendoza

Eighth: Mark Webber

Ninth: Nico Hulkenberg

Tenth: Nico Rosberg

Pole: Fernando Alonso

I'd really like to see a Raikkonen win, but I'm not sure it'll happen.

Alonso beating Vettel would keep the title interesting. If Vettel wins again it's hard to see anyone else taking the title.

Can't see Grosjean winning, particularly as he'll still, probably, be ultra-careful at the remaining starts.

I agree with Thaddeus. I can't see either Grosjean or Kimi winning at the moment.
Grosjean certainly has potential but needs to calm down a bit especially at the start of the races. To be first at the finish first you need to finish.

Kimi has changed, hasn't he?

In his McLaren days he didn't care in how many pieces his car would cross the finish line. All he cared was how fast he could make it go.

But maybe it's Formula 1 that changed, nowadays it is all about tyre management. You can't just push all the time.

I think Kimi was good in his Mclaren days but then he went to Ferrari and fizzled out. My first memory of Kimi was in 2001 in Austria in the Sauber when he came 4th I believe.

I think Grosjean has a lot of potential and Kimi has just lost his appetite (referece to his famous ice cream in the middle of the rainstorm in Malaysia 2009)
