Penalty for Le Clerc,

Good point, John!

Bear in mind when doing your predictions, that Ferrari say LeClerc will be getting a ten-place grid penlty as they'll be using a new engine.

Well, "I'm totally innocent, Your Honour"... angel

Young Charles gets indeed a ten place grid penalty.

That could translate into bonus points if he gets to the chequered flag, that is... if not, my advantage points could seriously be 'watered down'. We'll see I guess... sad

I suppose Claire wouldn't be smiling reading Iqon's comment above... frown

I must say that I'm absolutely 'immerged' with my PSS Sabre build at the moment, so thanks again for the reminder, John P.

Cheers

Chris

Well I figure if I have same driver as Chris, we'll score same points, ain't going to catch him that way, so stuck with my team, and why not, it's my predicting that's the problem. Some rain would be good. wink

As it isn't a secret that I have Young Charles in my team, if you have too, our scores - if he finishes - could be similar. It will then depend on your other team members...

... and on our predictions obviously. I think there resides my biggest problem as I've had lousy results lately.

Good luck to you and to all.

Cheers

OK, no comments please on the actual qualifying yet as the channel 4 folks haven't seen it yet.

But...

From one of the helicopter shots they used in qualifying, I spotted something out of the corner of my eye that looked like an F1-replated mural on a wall. So after a brief search on google streetview, at this location I found it;

interlagos.jpg

Bernie holding the trophy, with Lewis and Nico sprinting to the finishing line, ahead of (I think) Alonso and (presumably, given the year) Stoffel Vandoorne?

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it!

... just for John S's peace of mind > the quali predictions & the added bonus of my teammates gave me the supreme result of zero (=0) points... crying

Great start of a weekend!

@ John P > did Stoffel had a beard in 2016... question

Frustrating - just 10 points in the bag so far. Once again I've correctly predicted the drivers for the first three quali positions - but not necessarily in the correct order - let's hope they just shuffle around a bit during the race!teeth 2

I've no idea, Chris!

My Portugese is somewhat (totally!) lacking, so I've no idea what they're saying in this video, but it appears to be the work of Henrique Crivelari - known as Kinho, and was originally a much bigger work with lots of other drivers where the demolished section of wall is now...

Still open to offers on the ID of the drivers!

I'll have a bid on your driver's caricature, John.

As he 's 'blond-ish' and wearing the same outfit as Alonso, I'll go for Jenson B... indecision

Cheers

You're probably right Chris!

I was getting a year ahead of myself... embarrassed

Of course, 2016 (the mural is dated 11/11/16) was Jenson't last year at McLaren. For some reason I was thinking of 2017 when Vandoorne was there!

I noticed that, John... but I decided not to 'interfere' to avoid bringing you out of balance... angel

Indeed Robin is still very much in the running, but Ade should need a full platoon of his 'octopi' to reach up that much... wink

Cheers
