    Really?

    Alonso was fastest so why not him for pole?

    Because there's a very small gap between the two and Vettel when competitive will always get the pole. He can just put in that one lap. Also I don't know if Ferrari will risk multiple laps.

    Vettel was going faster before he caught pic. I don't see it as quite so simple though, especially with the top 12 seperated by 1 second. Can see maybe one or two bigger names going out before Q3, possibly from mercedes.

    Change to Hamilton's gearbox, he's got a 5 place grid penalty.

    I imagine it should, especially due to a very competitive top 5 this year...

    Ahhh, i didn't actually watch FP3 sos i didn't know the situation. Also, he didn't set a time on the faster tyre so should be better.

    I had Kimi down for pole but just changed it to Vettel.

    Hammy will qualify 2nd/3rd/4th because he is very strong in qualy, but I'm hoping he has the race pace to pass some of the cars in front of him on the early laps of the race.

    Vettel for pole, Kimi for the win. Last year Kimi had a weaker package at his disposal but still pushed Vettel for the win. This time he's going to go one better.

    I just checked the timesheets during the hour.

    Still undecided, I've put Alonso for the win but I'm unsure now...

    EDIT: Changed kimi ftw, might regret it but he came fourth and still managed 21 laps. Good tyre degredation.

    Same :five: originally had Alonso alonso Vettel. Going for a safe bet but after further analysis I can see lotus gave the better tyres. Rbr have issues with tyres, that complained to pirelli about them

    Quali starts at 12 so not long left

    Problem with Alo/Alo/Vet as a prediction is you'd end up with Kimi/Vet/Alo in the race and get 0 points.

    Haha I know!! I stuck with it. If I'd changed it and got it wrong, I would never forgive myself!
