2012 Spanish Grand Prix Predictions

It feels like the season is going to start to become predictable now. The timesheets from practice play almost exactly as I would expect them too, with Lotus now moving up the ranks and Ferrari still in the back, but in the top 10. On the longer runs, it sounded like the McLaren and Lotus cars have it figured out, but for some reason I feel that Vettel got a bunch of confidence from that last race and that he the Red Bulls were sandbagging it a bit. If they have gotten their stuff together finally, look for Vettel to come under fire, but hold on for the victory. Thus follow my predictions.

1. Sebastian Vettel

2. Kimi Raikkonen

3. Jenson Button

4. Romain Grosjean

5. Lewis Hamilton

6. Mark Webber

7. Nico Rosberg

8. Fernando Alonso

9. Michael Schumacher

10. Felipe Massa


2012 Bahrain Grand Prix Results

Turns out that only one protester was killed during the Grand Prix weekend. So all in all, not too bad for Bernie I guess, although F1 was marred by sharing headline space on the international papers with the goings on in Bahrain when they should have stayed out once again. No matter the result of this race, F1 did not gain any new fans.

Also, how freaking insane is this season so far? Four races and four different winners. I think next week might see the fifth if either Hamilton or Raikkonen can get to the front of the pack. Who knows? Anything seems possible this season. Hell, it’s so crazy I didn’t have even one position in the top 10 correctly called! Usually I can hit on at least one of them, but nothing is for certain in 2012. Also, if anyone noticed, the previous race featured an all Mercedes podium, while this one featured all Renault powered cars. And the race before that almost featured all Ferrari powered vehicles… well, not almost, but 2/3 of the podium isn’t bad. Seriously, anything can happen. Should be the slogan for this season. The Spanish Grand Prix is up next.
