Hungarian GP Predictions

All right, here’s what we know. We know that this weeks race takes place at the Hungaroring. We know that this track is similar in setup to Monaco, and we know that both the Red Bulls and the Ferraris were very quick there. We also know that there may be rain in the forecast. And finally, we know that the times show the Red Bulls and the Ferraris to be at the front of the pack on Sunday. I have a feeling about the top four spots in the points, but after that, its sort of a crapshoot. First off, you have Petrov super quick, while the McLarens and Williams and especially the Mercedes, are all off the outright pace. In fact, judging by the times, the Red Bulls and Ferraris are going to run away with this one! Those are the only two teams on track that have dipped into the 1:20 range. Everyone else is a lot farther back, and that is very surprising to see. Based on that information, here is what I think the points will look like.

1. Sebastian Vettel

2. Fernando Alonso

3. Felipe Massa

4. Mark Webber

5. Jenson Button

6. Robert Kubica

7. Lewis Hamilton

8. Vitaly Petrov

9. Nico Rosberg

10. Michael Schumacher

This is going to be an interesting race though because there are some other contenders that could get up into the points because of the nature of the twisty track. The Force India cars had a miserable week last week, and will probably bounce back, but they have never been really good on circuits that are not flat out, so I would tend to discount them. Also, the Williams cars could probably be put up in there (I think I could probably swap out a few names and put Rubens in there instead… I mean, he did go out and beat the lap time of The Stig!) but its just too tough to call, so I’m going with what I have. Stay tuned for Sunday.
