    This week-end the F-1 Boyz are in Barcelona-Catalunya, Spain. This race is usually pretty predictable but because of all of the fake information being floated by teams before each race, prognosticators like this competition face a lot of unpredictability to work through to get a decent realistic podium selection down. Should be interesting as usual.

    Yep, top five are as follows:

    1 Vallateri Bottas Mercedes 1:17.284
    2 Lewis Hamilton Mercedes +0.049s
    3 Charles Leclerc Ferrari +0.301s
    4 Sebastian Vettel Ferrari +0.389s
    5 Max Verstappen Renault

    We have seen this before where the winner of the race could be either Merc.

    Tough call other than Mercedes being 1-2 of course, can't figure out which order they'll be in. It will be all about the start. Not sure if Bottas can match Hamilton for the full season but for this race he appears to have the edge

    Bottas
    Hamilton
    Verstappen
    Vettel

    Dammit. I really wanted to put down Hamilton for the win because he has gotten great starts lately. But that 6/10ths of a second fooled me. I figured that Bottas was just too strong.

    I hadn't heard that Hamilton blew his charging procedure in q3 and didn't have the juice to catch Valteri. They were way closer than it looked.

    Impressive run by Verstappen and Gasly. They look like they are getting it figured out. We may be looking at a Ferrari 3rd place in the constructors championship. They need to get their shit together quick. Bad strategy calls, big mistakes by their #1 driver and a "#2" driver who is clearly as good or better than #1.

    If Bob Kubica can go out and "race" every weekend even though he has no chance in hell, Retroram52 has no excuse for moaning about his low points tally.....
