    Current standings after Spain:
    1-J Derrig 309 perfect score: max points and max bonus, takes over the lead
    2-JD Gomez 307
    3-P Hir 287
    4-G Dzielinski 257
    5-L Andrews 251
    6-G Nelson 210
    7-F Brun-Wibuax 194
    8-J Martin 144
    9-K McHale 108

    Ok you guys, this is a lot of work figuring this out each race and I don’t have time to work out a spreadsheet (maybe next year or later this one), so from Monaco on, there is an instant 5 pt bonus when you make a post for the race. If you want to stand pat with your usual picks, that’s fine, but make a new post of them for each race. You want to change to new ones, great!! It’s almost getting boring with Hamilton, Rosburg 1-2’s, lets hope Vettel’s great progress in Spain is the new trend and bring some life to the podium. After all he started 15 and got 4th, passing Bottas, Alonso and the Iceman in the final stint. Could he have won if he started 4th or 5th? Will crashes and attrition play a big role? Could a survivor win, maybe Massa or Bottas for Williams, or the Ferraris?

    Q:RIC-HAM-ROS

    R:RIC-HAM-ROS

    This race would be a testament that Red Bull still has the best chassis.

    Alonso stirring the pot! 1/2 sec faster than Hammy after rain in the 2nd practice. Race day calling of cloudy, chance of rain or meatballs?!

    Qualy:

    Hamilton

    Rosberg

    Riccardo

    Race:

    Hamilton

    Rosberg

    Ricardo

    Monaco is a unique track with a history of being a one-off race that shakes up the usual order.  Power advantage will mean less (Mercedes loses advantage) and aero efficiency also means less (usually an advantage for the Newey designs, i.e., Red Bull), but despite this I gotta stick with what got me here.

    Q: Rosberg, Hamilton, Ricciardo
    R: Rosberg, Hamilton, Alonso

    Hometown race for Rosberg, and he’s the 2013 Monaco GP winner. I say he finally gets Lewis this weekend.

    Q
    Hamilton
    Rosburg
    Alonso

    I’m thinking Hammy will start to run off at the start but make a mistake and crash, Alonso will get the lead in the pit stops and Vettel will fight with Nico, but not be able to pass or get advantage in the pits. Riccardo 4th.

    R
    Alonso
    Rosburg
    Vettel

    Of course if it rains Alonso, Vettel, Botas

    First race I’ve seen all year.  Not great, but not bad either.  Kind of fun to watch Vettel act like an entitled dooshbaby, stoked to see Ricciardo doing well.

    Not sure why DirecTV doesn’t even see the races in the search results…

    Thanks for doing the points Greg!  :)
