Spain GP Predictions...

Mine are...

1. Vettel
2. Button
3. Hamilton

Might be stretching it a little, but it would be pretty cool to see Hamilton finally podium this weekend.

1. Vettel
2. Button

Seriously though:
1. Vettel
2. Button
3. Kubica or Rubens

Playing devil's advocate here, but I'm picking:
  1. Massa
  2. Button
  3. Alonso (no idea how he'd do it with that Renault, but I'm a homer this weekend)

Me and the baby will still be pulling for Robbie, but I don't think the BMW's stand a chance, unless their 'upgrades' include a time machine or something.

Dont think the McLaren will make it on the podium. Seems their cars isnt setup for this type of track.

WRONG!!!! It's because he wasn't able to do the laptimes he needed for a 3 stop race. Listen to Button's radio transmission early in the race, you can hear him say "Rubens you can go faster than this". He was saying this in regards to Rubens needing to go faster.

Your conspiracy theory holds no water ... back to the drawing board

If he would have started to conserve fuel when they told him to around lap 11 he would have only had give up one. There was ~30 seconds between him and Alonso but since he decided to waste fuel on Vettel for 10 laps he had to coast to the finish.

If Ferrari wouldn't have f'ed up the strategy to begin with, yet again, he wouldn't have had to give up anything. Between this and repeating the same qualifying fiasco twice in a couple races I'm amazed they haven't started public floggings back in Italy.
