FBC Staff Picks: Mexican GP

Share This Post

Three races to go. Just three. I’m thinking we should all start gathering our supplies and provisions to get us through the winter. But still, I suppose we do have the Mexican Grand Prix to get through, so let’s see who picked who.

For the first time since Germany, some seven rounds ago, one of the Top Three in the FBC Staff standings have gone with a different driver than their other two counterparts. Where as Todd and Tony are both going for Rosberg to repeat his victory of last year, Grace is picking Hamilton to double his current winning streak.

Johnpierre, who is slowly creeping back up on the front runners, is also going with the Brit, as are Paul, Tom and Dave. Andrew is the third staffer to pick the WDC points leader to take the victory this weekend. All staffers bar Dave are picking both Mercs on the top two steps of the podium, with Dave putting Ricciardo ahead of Rosberg. Danny, meanwhile, gets three picks for third, versus three for Max and one for Kimi.

Some Top Six guest appearance picks outside of the Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull teams are Perez, with three nods and one apiece for Kvyat and Massa. Felipe, unfortunately, is also one of three drivers who have been foreseen to leave the race first, along with Button and Grosjean. Gutierrez and Verstappen and Paul and Dave’s choices respectively. As we do indeed near the end of the 2016 season, Tony currently holds a fourteen point gap over his nearest rivals, but Grace could easily vlose that gap by having correctly predicted the podium on Sunday.

But if she gets it wrong and Tony and Todd at least get the top two correct, then she will definitely fall down the order, especially since JP will also sneak past her into at least third. So there is definitely room for some movement up and down the standings this weekend.

Learned my lesson there last time. This time, I’ll go with:

1. Hamilton
2. Rosberg
3. Ricciardo
4. Verstappen
5. Vettel
6. Raikkonen

…and first out will be Palmer.

….and after the dust settled from all the penalties, I would up with a huge 25 points!
