As the Mercedes juggernaut continues it’s reign over the current state of Formula One, some interesting things occurred during the first round of F1B Staff Picks. While four staffers went home from Australia with big goose eggs, all five that correctly picked Hamilton over Rosberg for the top two steps of the podium scored at least fifteen points.
Andrew and Tom both took things a step further by choosing Massa for 4th. However, this week’s big winner was last year’s big Last Placer, Grace, who got the whole Australian podium correct. That’s not all that strange, though, as Grace was the staff champ just two years ago. What is strange, however, is what happened in regards to First Out. Was it the fact that Pastor Maldonado took that honor? Not at all. In fact, it probably should have been somewhat expected considering his history. You see, the thing is, for the first time since the Chinese Grand Prix of 2013, not one single staffer picked “Chrashtor” as First Out! Mind blown.
