Default Predictions: F1 European Grand Prix Nurburgring

Qualifying is done and the grid is set. Rain made things topsy turvy but in the end Webber put it on pole. Hamiltion is back in the top ten and the Mclaren seems to have performed better with the new aero package. Force India broke into the top ten this weekend and Adrian did a good job of putting the car on 7th. Both the Ferraris are at the botton end of the top 10.

I predict a Red Bull win and Vettel should do well in case it rains but the Brawns are in front of him. My order

1. Vettel
2. Button
3. Webber

Hope to see the Ferraris climb up the order as well.

I think this one will be Vettel's race. The Brawns will be lucky to be in the top five because they are really light and if it rains, their tyres just don't work for them. So hopefully Lewis Hamilton can sneak a podium.

No one talks about Adrian Sutil ! come on guys this is his best chance to win. I m expecting a top 5 finish from him. As I see his strategy is to pit late in the first.

Ah man I am trying hard, formatting it to make it really very readable but it aint working sorry guys !

After 130 attempts, Webber has made it on pole. I wish he wins today!

The aero package of the McLarens seem to be better than what Ferrari managed to develop. Ferrari seem to be stuck perpetually in P8, P9 and P10 positions in qualifying.

Should be Webber or Button. I am rooting for either.

Bari is just going to have another another round of disappointment. :(

A Force India ahead of the Ferraris. Today is the Day!

Anyone other than Button, Hamilton or Webber. Though I'd love to see Massa or Kimi.

I think Button will take this one. He's just been most consistent among the front runners.
Would love to see Hamilton on the podium too. Maybe even a Force India. Probably being optimistic.

What a race!
Very happy to see Webber win. He truly deserved it. Pole position, penalty and still got the victory. Well done Mark!

What a brilliant drive by Webber inspite of a error in judgment by the stewarts to give him a drive through.

Its going to be Red Bull Vs Brawn this season going forward.
