2. Juan
3. Jenson
4. Rubens
5. Takuma
6. Jarno
7. Ralph
8. Kimi

Monaco was a great race. Here's hoping for more excitement.

Here are my picks for this race:

1. MS - I think the last thing the rest of field needs is an extra-determined MS after the Monaco tunnel incident
2. JB - He'll be fast but still 30+ seconds behind MS in the end
3. RB - Will be nipping on JB's heels the entire race
4. JT - having a great season in a damn good car
5. RS - He'll make the most of the FW26 and put on a decent show for his home race
6. FA - Won't have the pace to get by Ralphie
7. JPM - Will be lapped by MS and he'll not be able to do anything about it
8. GF - another point for Sauber!

1) MS - Revenge from Monaco

3) TS - BAR finally have both cars finish
4) RB - Right on the butt of Taku
5) JPM - Determined to win
6) JT - Renault down on power
7) FA - Both Renault's in the points
8) CDM - Eating leftovers

McLaren's out w/ engine/chassis problems
Sauber's just not up to speed

Yeah, all these dates are great! I can't wait for Montreal! Hopefully all the teams have enough time to prepare for all of these consecutive races.

No love for Coulthard? Thats ok, I dont think his car will make the par either

I think we will see the Renaults on top, they got a good cornering chassis. As long as Alonso doesn't go happy-go-lucky with all the passing that will go on he should do well. Michael "The Freak" Schumacher will probably pull off the win again, this is a drivers' circuit and he is the best there is. Takuma Sato will do well if he doesn't get stupid and not finish, teamate Button will be up there if the engine holds.

We sure are picking a different bunch than we were five races ago! I think this is the first time I haven't had DC in my picks in more than a year.

I almost left JPM and Rubio out completely. Scenario: Rubio takes out JPM and self; Team Orders...

Hopefully in this race we won't have any 'backmarkers' involved in any incidents with the race leaders

I still say JPM will win!
After Ralf goes wide in a turn and smacks into the brother -or- races his brother into a turn like he did to Alonso

Talking It's Gettin' Interestin'!

After race a like Monaco, it's getting harder to pick 'em!

Here's my wild guess:
  1. Michael - Car and driver are reliably fast!
  2. Rubens - Car is reliably fast, driver is fast!
  3. Jenson - Car is fast, driver is reliably fast!
  4. Jarno - Should be a dogfight for the podium... a Renault may grab it, as both drivers and cars are very fast, but Honda seems to have more grunt, which is important here
  5. Juan - Williams still not working well on the narrow front Michelins, but Juan will muscle the car up
  6. Fernando - This is wrong... I don't know what I'm doing... it'll be a fluke if Alonso is this low in the points!
  7. Ralfie - He's driving angry, and may be faster than his team-mate, but his bad karma, and inability to pass or be passed on the track will bite him in the butt!
  8. Takumo - Bad luck is the only reason that Takumo will finish this low. Otherwise, Giancarlo's Sauber grabs this point!
P.S. I'm an idiot, and reserve the right to change my picks before the first practice on Friday!

Monaco was a fluke, I'm thinking. This weekend will mark the return of the Big Red Machine, but Barrichello won't hold up his end of the bargain. With that said,

1. MS (he has something to prove...watch out)
2. JB (the BAR is fast, no fluke)
3. RB (Barrichello just doesn't have the mustard)
4. JPM (he'll find some way to wrestle that car into the top five)
5. JT (big Monaco comedown)
6. DC (strategy will help him)
7. FA (he'll run afoul of R. Schumacher again)
8. TS (Sato is fast, but not consistently fast)

They have been talking about changing it for next year. The latest suggestion, which I'm not too sure about, is to have two 1 hour sessions, back-to-back, with aggregate times.

For whatever reason I can't get into making picks this year. I've seen every lap of every race, but I can't get interested in trying to predict the qual/results.

I hope they change the quailifing format before the USGP. I heard it is just damned boring to watch live. You are there for almost 3 hours and see each car go by twice. I think the format of last year was not great but at least it worked better then this one. I would also like to see them be able to adjust fuel loads before the race. Seeing the cars fat with fuel on a quali is just not that interesting to me.

What are you referring to?

If you are able to surf the internet while watching the live broadcast, you can always hit Formula1.com to see the official FIA lapchart, lap and sector times feed in real time that all the teams get on the pit wall.

Ahem....(from AutoSport) Too late for Indy, but it is changing.

New qualifying format for British GP
Return to low fuel flying laps as qualifying receives shake-up


One lap qualifying will become a thing of the past from Silverstone. Hurrah!


Formula 1 will have a revised qualifying format as of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on July 11. Replacing the existing single car format will be a one hour session split into two 20 minute sessions with a 20 minute break in between.

Each car must complete six laps in each of the sessions with the fastest time from each period aggregated to produce the overall grid time. Both sessions will be run with free fuel levels, meaning that once again we will see a return to flat out qualifying with cars in their optimum specification.

The parc ferme rules will continue but teams will fuel the cars after qualifying in preparation for the race. Many of the teams are believed to have pushed for the second session to be run with race fuel levels but Ferrari's Jean Todt pointed out that if fuel conservation was a factor, drivers would then crawl round on their in-laps having set their quick time, leading to potentially hazardous situations.A prime consideration has been a simple format that is easily understandable and any aggregate system could be seen to fly in the face of that, but timing equipment is considered sophisticated enough not to make this a problem.

That is great about the return to flying laps.

This past year and a half has sucked.

I actually really enjoyed one lap qualifying at Indy last year. It was the best part of the weekend for me. The Foster's might have had something to do with it though.

Excellent! They are gonna liberate the fuel loads for qualifying!! Qualifying will again indicate something about a car's abilities and a driver's skills, as it had in the past. That is much, much better!

Thanks for posting that Kevin!

Raikkonen set the fastest time for the 2nd practice. How come he barely gets into your top 8 predictions?

Are you serious? Look at how McLaren have been doing this year. I think putting them in the top 8 at all is now questionable.

I'm don't think a McLaren is going to win the race, but since they seem to be doing ok in practice Kimi might get in the points.
