Ferrari and Kimi show signs of a pulse (Alonso is always alive), can Monza bring a podium? a win?
Can MB jump back to the top for the first time since Germany?
It’s a speed track, MB teams will dominate, can Williams finally get Bottas to the top?
Will Hamilton continue to have an up and down year?
Will his frustration take Nico and him out?
7 races left and now Riccardo has a slim chance, can the Silver Arrows boys keep their eye on the goal or will they take each other out and give Red Bull it’s 5th championship in a row?

Might change my mind by then, but here goes!
Q Ham, Massa, Rosberg
R Bottas, Riccardo, Alonso
I do think Hammy will take Rosberg and Massa out at the start and Vettel will be close to or at the front but will succumb to Bottas and follow orders and let Riccardo go, but Vettel’s car will fail him again, letting Alonso onto the podium for a small Ferrari victory that will still disappoint he home crowd.
Crapp. Race after race I’ve expected Hamilton to crawl out of the hole he’s seems to be falling into and race after race something happens to him. I’m giving up and going with Nico, which means, of course, that the bad luck will finally go away and Hamilton will dominate Monza.
Q–Ros, Ham, Bottas.
R–Ros, Ham, Bottas
Riccardo’s having a heck of a season, but I don’t think that can overcome the Renault’s deficiencies at this track.
