    I don’t bother to play the predictions game, never have and never will. We basically all know it will be a Mercedes one-two (probably with Hamilton first), most likely with one of the Red Bulls third (most likely Vettel), however. If ever there was a season to start with the predictions, it was this one — it couldn’t be much easier.

      why resist the temptation lose out on a chance :-D . If you no longer go for a cap that exists, you are no longer a racing fan
      ;-)

      Maybe dont watch the race either why your at it.

      • knoxploration said on 5th April 2014, 17:06

        I probably won’t watch the next one. I barely watched qualifying today, and I’ve already told myself if there’s no sign of things improving (and especially, a sense of sporting fairness being returned to F1), I won’t watch beyond this race either.

    • knoxploration said on 5th April 2014, 17:08

      So I didn’t call the drivers due to issues for two individuals, but I called the cars. And that, right there, is the definition of what a predictable, boring farce F1 is becoming.

      I’ll call it right now: Mercedes will take the first two positions in qualifying followed by a Red Bull in both of the next two races. And Mercedes will win both of the next two races with a 1-2 followed by a Red Bull. All of the above being unless weather, safety cars or collisions affect the result, obviously.

    Just added my prediction and immediately thought it was unlikely to happen. Oh well.

    Ham – Ros – Hulk – Bot – But

    Hamilton friday afternoon time: 1:35.324
    Hamilton saturday morning time: 1:34.325

    I guess, Hamilton pole: 1:33:322, and Hamilton sunday fast lap: 1:32:323 :P
