    Not looking so silly now, huh? :P
    Nope, looks fairly decent. Althoguh he'll still have to get past Vettel. (Assuming Hamilton blasts past them both)

    You can always count on Maldonaldo! With this atypical grid, I think we might have a few overtaking attempts going sour. Also, I think it will be a miracle if the two Saubers will be able to finish the race :rolleyes:
    That's true. Watching Alo/Rai/MAS/BOT cut through the field will be awesome until they smash up cars on the way past. WE'll also have the Marussia going backwards from 12th.

    What do you reckon? Agree with the list?

    Canada 2011 was awesome. With changeable conditions a possibility tomorrow it could be another JB masterclass.

    Heh, slim chance of any overtaking points from the Maurissia's today!

    You can have the same podium. That's why we have the tiebreakers.


    You're both crazy though. Where is rosberg?

    Interesting, so you went for what you hope will happen, not the most likely outcome?

    I prefer to go for the rosberg win on the prediction games so then if he wins i'm still a bit happy and if he loses i'm also happy. Yours is more of an all or nothing style approach.

    :eek2: That's exactly what i thought... :holmes:

    Unless someone rams into him or he has a TERRIBLE pitstop or mechanical failure he'll be able to just control the whole race from the front...

    He's definitely likely to have an average start if you look back at the starts he's made this season. Hamilton has been much better off the line and tbf I expect him to clear the other cars infront of him with ease. He might have trouble though getting past Hulkenberg maybe. Alot of straights and overtaking opportunities at Silverstone :beard:

    Yeah, I guess I'd rather have a prediction being in line with what I'd like to happen. Don't want to end up cheering Rosberg

    Yes but an average start against Vettel /Button is fine. If Hamilton was alongside him i'd agree he could easily be beaten in T1 but not from 6th...

    I reckon after 3 laps it will be Ros, Vet, HAM and it'll end up ROS, HAM, VET as he'll get past vettel after a while but by that time Rosberg will have a 5 second lead he can just maintain to the end.

    How is overtaking here?

    Iirc it's tough on the hanger straight due to fast corners beforehand meaning it's hard to stay close in the dirty air.

    not so much the pit straight, thinking more the hanger straight and the straight after the arena complex!

    Well it looks dry which is good for the mercs. Rain may have helped lewis come through a bit though.
