F1B Staff Picks: Monza

With eight races still to go in the 2013 Formula One World Championship, Monza marks the final round in Europe before the teams head east and then finish up the season out west. Along with the usual suspect of Sebastian Vettel, who gets three nods from F1b staffers, three others are going with Fernando Alonso to win on Ferrari’s home soil. One pick each for Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen round out this week’s potential points paying victors.

Pretty much everyone’s podium is filled, in some order, by Seb, Fred, LewHam or Kimi with the exception of Dave, who is throwing his pick favorite Webbo into the mix and Chris, who is going with Rosberg for third. For First Out, both Grace and Chris feel that Ricciardo’s recent good news might overwhelm him, while Andrew and Dave see championship leader Vettel losing a few points early in Italy. Grosjean gets his usual couple of picks, while Bottas, Webber and Chilton take one apiece. And while Grace is currently running away with our own championship, the battle for second has five staffers separated by just twenty-one points. Certainly manageable, unless maybe you’re a pay staffer whose place on the grid is paid for by your own government. But that doesn’t really happen at the highest level of blogging…does it?
