    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.

    Bam!!! Kimi out with an injury. Shades of last year bailing early on Lotus or legit? With Ferrari having difficulties this year, will this stir the pot? what if the team improves? What does everyone thing about the 18″ wheels that are being tested? so far just on the Lotus test car and with the normal brakes that fit in the 13″ rims, what could the lower profile tire, larger brakes mean to racing? Other than the 10″ fronts on Tyrrell’s P34, it’s been 13″ since the early 70″s (not sure if they 60’s cars had them, but the older 50’s and older wire wheel cars had to be bigger than 13″, right?) I kinda like the 13″, but wish they would change to the profiles and stance of the 70’s, back then, they almost looked like shifter karts now, smaller diameter, medium wide fronts and big fat rears, stretched out to at all four corners. And bring back a choice between sports car noses or single element front wings. All the layers of crap, flaps and barge boards, yeech! I can deal with gills, fins and vents, even wings, but there’s too much crap tacked on on these cars.

    Even thought qualifying is broadcast later (at least on Comcast it is), picks are still due before actual qualifying at 8 am eastern.

    Well, Williams has throw a monkey wrench into it. I think I have to change up things, Qualifying: Ham, Rosburg, Massa and Race Ham, Massa, Rosburg.

    Dude, thanks for starting it off this race, been swamped, nice title and comment Juan David. Personally, I like Monster, white can zero carb. It was great to see the MB total domination halted at Canada and you have to wonder when Vettel will get off the snide. Early picks are, Qualifying: Rosburg, Ham, Ric and Race is Ham, Vettel, Alonso. Gotta wonder what’s going on at Red Bull, Riccardo finishes well most of the time, Vettel, not so much, anything that can go wrong, does, but yet is in fifth place, 80 points behind Rosburg, who has proven he’s the tortoise/hare hybrid. With 12 races and 300 points left, can Vettel start finishing on top and average 6 1/2 points per race more than Nico? Does Red Bull start team orders in favor of Riccardo with only 19 more points? I wouldn’t say no, but for either one, but unless something changes now, it’s a two horse, oops, Bull race and with Hammy’s rep, Nico is my favorite for the title.

    Remember, starting with Monaco, everyone who posts a current set of picks, get 5 bonus points JD, PH and GD all gain 5 posts for posting for this race. Also, remember you can edit your pick up to the start of Q.
    I’m going with Hammy, Rosburg and Vettle for qualifying and I think Vettle’s luck, will change and finally get him to the front, Race: Vettle, Rosburg, Alonso. 5 points for me!!!! eh?

    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

    Top scores in China for JD and Jim, 63 points.
    McHale scores his first points with a strong race result.
    Little bit of a break ’til the next one as they return to Europe next month.

    We have 5 picking Rosburg for his second win, 3 for his teammate Hamilton to win and one with Vettel getting his first. Does Riccardo get his first? Maybe Alonso? Can the Merc and Red Bull teammates play nice and follow orders or will they take each other out? With only a 10% chance of rain, it’s going to benefit drivers who do seem to have a handle on the wet yet and the start could see again some huge passing and maybe a big wreck to jumble up everything. Maybe Massa jumps forward and gets a podium? Can the Iceman get it together with a 2 stop race and take the fight to the front with avoiding the start carnage? I’m not staying up, so I’ll wait to watch the DVR. Good luck everyone, and Welcome McHale.
