10th Place was difficult - based on Last year, Schumacher, Barrricello, Petrov were regularly around there plus a couple of others.

Based purely on last year Vettel was my "safe" selection for pole and fastest lap

I think 10th place will be an interesting one to pick and should get some very varied answers.

Vettel for Pole and fastest lap should be a banker for most people I expect given last years results.
No entries by any of the hosts, very disappointing.

Since FP2 was well under way when he posted the entries, no wonder. He's cheating already I tell you!

The F1Weekly Spreadsheet department were up all night correcting the problem.

Standings after Australia. I don't think the result is changed in any way by the Sauber penalty and subsequent appeal.

The Spreadsheet department has been notified and paid extra zeros to work Sunday. In the mean time, here you go.

Not the best start to the year. Sorry.

Let's put it down to a lack of testing and hope the next round fares better.

RE: Prediction Competition 2011
Sweet! I have adjusted my wing and sailed past Yaaay into 12th place. I feel like Nick Heidfeld. Sorry for the potty mouth earlier. My daughter had a sleepover last night and I was a little sleep deprived. I told my wife that it was very inconvenient to be having a sleepover party what with the F1 opening round and everything. She didn't quite see my point.

I get the same problems with a lack of understanding. It seems obvious to me that watching races is more important than decorating but it seems to fall on deaf ears.

It took me 10 years, but my wife finally understood that F1 races are more important than gardening, going to the swimming pool and most of all having long conversations. Now I just have to convince friends that having their child christened on a F1 day is not a good idea.

I've been trying for over 10 years, there is definitely no hope. I managed to get the F1 race watched this weekend as I taped it and got it "out of the way" early. It also helped that she was sleeping off a hangover. The main problem for me is if the race is later in the day or there is a lot on a single day like yesterday when I didn't get a chance to watch any of the WSBK races.

Hmmm... get the wife drunk before the race is on. Now there is an excellent idea!

It only works if the race is early though, otherwise you just end up with a moody hung over wife and no race to watch as compensation. Plus extra chores round the house while she feels sorry for herself.

RE: Prediction Competition 2011
Mr Yaaay, where do I file a complaint with the FIA? I went to look at the PM I sent for entries and I had sent you Alonso, Vettel, and Hamilton for the podium. But when posted on the forum, my official Hamilton entry was changed to Heidfeld. I smell subterfuge! Please launch an official investigation immediately to see how this could have happened. I suspect Flabbio teeny-weenie bikini is behind this.

I've been married once, and I dissagree Tongue Wink Granted F1 wasn't the problem there as when my magazine purchases were culled, F1 racing was an example of a magazine I can still purchase.
