Grand Prix Prediction Game - Germany - Results In

F1 is back at the emasculated Hockenheim circuit this week for the German instalment of the season. We've finally found out why Red Bull are so fast in qualifying but don't have the same advantage in the race. Mclaren might have sorted their aero upgrades so could these take them past Red Bull in race trim?

Ferrari again claim they should have won in Britain if those pesky stewards hadn't got involved (cue Scooby Doo type laughter), will they come good in Germany? And what of Mercedes? Their home race and, if memory serves, they have bought up whole grandstands in the past for their employees to cheer on the Mclaren version of the Silver arrows. Wonder if they will do the same for this race?

For what it's worth I'm going for a Red Bull 1-2 with Webber leading home Vettel. Minor placings as follows:

1. Webber
2. Vettel
3. Button
4. Kubica
5. Hamilton
6. Alonso
7. Massa
8. Rosberg
9. Barrichello
10. Sutil

And where's the Red Baron I hear you ask? Sitting in the pits crying into his energy drink just after mid-distance.

Re: Grand Prix Prediction Game - Germany

1) Vettel (he's got to come good this time)
2) Webber (won't be able to beat home advantage)
3) Hamilton (best of the rest)
4) Schumacher (his best race of the season but a false dawn)
5) Alonso (will be up for it even more than usual but won't have enough)
6) Barichello (will continue Williams recent improvement)
7) Hulkenberg (following his team mate home with his strongest weekend of the year)
8) Rosberg (strangely quiet weekend)
9) Sutil (Another strong race on home soil)
10) Kobyashi (Another points finish)

Wonder if any of that will come true ?? LOL

Vettel is surely the most likely candidate at this stage. But if he does not get pole, whoever does will probably hold him off.

Hamilton can never be counted against getting a podium, and if Button can improve his qualifying, he could also be in the Champagne.

Webber is the other clear choice, but at Vettel's home Grand Prix, Mark will be very much the 'outsider' at Red Bull. (OK, so what's new?) :nah:

Do you want to predict a top 10 Cosicave? After the race we score them: 3 points for a correct position, 1 point for getting a driver in the top 10 but out of position.

There are virtual biscuits for the winner

Re: Grand Prix Prediction Game - Germany

As heavy rain is forecast, I'm going to predict that McLaren won't be able to test their updates effectively.
It will also be cool which suits the Red Bulls.

So, with that in mind, on with the completely inaccurate prediction.

1. Vettel
2. Webber
3. Alonso
4. Hamilton
5. Button
6. Rosberg
7. Kubica
8. Massa
9. Barrichello
10. Schumacher

Here's hoping for a wet race.

Re: Grand Prix Prediction Game - Germany

Well, although I'd agree Brogan, that some bad weather could scupper the test session of the McLaren EBL, I'm hoping that even with a wet friday they can get some decent info on the system with comparison runs and keep it for the weekend.

If there is a wet race, then I think the McLarens will continue to show the speed they showed in the wet in Malaysia, with those thoughts in mind I'm going for.

1.Hamilton
2.Vettel
3.Button
4.Webber
5.Massa
6.Rosberg
7.Alonso
8.Schumacher
9.Petrov
10.Koby

Knowing my luck, I'll be totally wrong again. I hope not!! :D

Red Bulls weren't spectacular in China when it was wet though were they?

Ooh questions questions :unsure:

If it's a thoroughly wet race, then, within reason; it will be a case of "he who dares wins". And that has to bode well for Hamilton…

If it is a wet race, then it has to suit McLaren, they've got the best person at going fast on a damp track (Hamilton) and the best person at making good tyre calls (Button, a Hock specialist to boot).
