I don’t see Vettel overcoming his problems with his driving and his car anytime soon. I believe Ricciardo or Alonso for 3rd, as I believe they will pull away from the rest of the pack whilst still chasing the Silver Arrows.
It isn’t the first time VET has come back at the 2nd half of a championship season, however, at this moment in time, it seems very distant. However, it is clear to me that the RBR is the best of the rest.
Dan is in good form at the moment and seems to be able to get more out of the RB10 over a race distance. he is also pretty handy in quali, so that’ll help him in the psychological battle against Vettel I think due to Vettel being seen as a one lap specialist in addition to his many other talents.
Seb will still struggle all year but looking better this weekend with the car, Dan looking real good and will just get better and is oozing confidence. Fernando is always a great racer, although could be better Saturday arvo, but again he doesn’t seem to have the car.
I would love to say Bottas for 4th really, next year maybe!
Ok, they may already be too far behind to finish 2nd by the end of the year, but I reckon they’ll be the second best team by then. In Spain they looked fairly quick, despite the car still looking a monumental handful! I reckon once they have it sorted, and the car fully refined, they can be second best.
