    Bottas will do elton at the start, the Ferraris will get in each other’s way, Kimi go second and Seb stick behind the thicko. Verstappen will already have taken out Ricci as he tries to overtake on the main drag to the first corner, nerfing him into the gravel. Alonso will be sixth by the second corner.

    Eventual winner, Seb, Kimi a disillusioned third behind bottles, due to pit strategy

    I’d prefer Kimi and Seb, in no particular order, first and second after the first corner and romp on to a victory. I’m thinking one stop race, soft as far as they can, then supers for as few laps as possible (at the end of the race, the rubber laid down may take the sting from running on the supers later) as otherwise merc will have an edge at the end. Elton to dance with Maxine and get trashed

    The FIA confirms that Paul Di Resta will interview the TOP 3 drivers as soon as they get out of the car. NO MORE PODIUM interviews for the foreseeable future!

    So Di Resta "sticks to that reporting stuff" for now - to quote Kimi?

    Kimi still has to break his duck since returning to Ferrari. Maybe today?

    I guess Ham can't thank all of his fans in the greatest city for coming out to support him. ;)

    Verstappen for the win! He will take out Ricci at the start and rely on Ham self destructing into Bot before taking the lead. Kimi will do the usual and blame pit strategy for another mediocre performance. Then, after the podium, the FIA will declare max a nice penalty and gift the victory to Ferrari and Vet. It’s going to be a random afternoon I tell you!

    Just watched the second F2 race , the wind has dropped so not that easy to pass even with DRS.Plus quite high tyre degredation. Not the usual excitement.
