    Formula 1 is back in Monza, Italy this Labor Day week-end for another race in the stretch run of the championship. Hamilton is on a roll and presently leads Verstappen and Ricciardo in qualifying. Should be a pretty good race.

    BoiseStateFan has already submitted his selections. They are:

    Hamilton
    Bottas
    Vettel
    Raikkonen

    Wow, Hamilton takes his 69th pole setting a new F-1 record. He takes the pole ahead of Verstappen, Ricciardo and Stroll. This qualifying was done in the rain, so the end result could be drastically different if things dry-out.

    Hamilton takes it followed by Bottas, Vettel, and Ricciardo. Vettel almost passed Bottas but ran out of time.

    Hank Kingsley: 6 points- Correctly selected Hamilton for the win
    forty_three: 0 points- No-show
    Retroram52: 7 points - Correctly selected Hamilton for the win and Ricciardo for fourth

    Season totals:

    BoiseStateFan is on a roll with back-to-back almost-running-the-table. He's on fire! Maybe you should just wing-it with your selections while going out of town every week-end race, BSF!!

    LOL! I couldn't believe how well I did, but then again this race was rather predictable. We are were pretty close, I just happened to have Bottas ahead of Vettel and that was the difference.

    I tried that one other time this year and that of course was the absurd Azerbaijan grand prix

    Singapore should be interesting though, that type of track can halt the Mercedes momentum and bring Red Bull into the fray, should be fun

    I'll just have to keep this going, I have a lot of ground to make up still from the hole that I dug myself
