FBC Staff Picks: Italian GP

1

You know that one driver and one team are dominant when all but one F1B staffer picks Hamilton to win and Rosberg to finish second. And the other staffer? They pick Rosberg to win and Hamilton to come second. Take that, everyone that’s not Mercedes! Of course, it’s somewhat difficult for anyone to make up ground in the staff championship when they’re almost all picking the same drivers for the top two positions.

Actually, the only staffer not to pick Vettel or Bottas for third is Dave, who’s going with Raikkonen. By this time in every season, the predictions through most of the top six begin to look quite similar.

Lewis, Nico and Valtteri make appearances in everyone’s top five positions, while the only one not picking Vettel in their top four is Dave, who’s gone all cheeky and picked the German as First Out. Raikkonen and Massa each figure into six of eight staffer predictions, while Grosjean’s recent comeback helps him to get three nods.

The battle for First out sees Maldonado picking up where he left off with three picks, the McLaren duo getting three between them and Perez and Vettel taking the other two slots. Will the status quo remain the same following Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix? Will most of the staff just be fifteen points further along following yet another Hamilton/ Rosberg one-two? Only the gods of Monza know for sure.

I guess I’ll join the bandwagon here and go with:
1. Hamilton
2. Rosberg
3. Vettel
4. Hulkenberg
5. Massa
6. Bottas
…and first out will be Raikkonen.
