FBC Staff Picks- Chinese GP

Following the Malaysian GP, in which every single staffer picked Hamilton for the win and, therefore, missed out on picking up points for the win, China brings at least a little bit of a change. While six of eight are still picking the reigning champ and current points leader to take the victory, Dave and Tony are going out on a limb by taking Rosberg to win out.

All eight of us are predicting a Mercedes/Ferrari podium, though Grace is picking Vettel and Raikkonen to fill out the podium behind Hamilton and ahead of Rosberg. Newcomer Merhri makes his debut with two picks for First Out, with Maldonado taking his customary position as FO pick leader. Grosjean, Alonso and young Max each get a nod, as well. Will the Chinese Grand Prix bring more surprises or will F1 be back to business as normal?

Whoa, Paul…you’re getting pretty risky there. :) Vettel on top huh? We’ll see, my friend.

Well, I did make these picks a full week before FP1. Besides, gotta take some calculated risk on occasion. ;-)
