2018 AZERBAIJAN GRAND PRIX Revised Top 10 Prediction

1. Sebastian Vettel 2. Max Verstappen 3. Daniel Ricciardo 4. Kimi Raikkonen 5. Lewis Hamilton 6. Valtteri Bottas 7. Nico Hulkenberg 8. Carlos Sainz, Jr. 9. Sergio Perez 10. Esteban Ocon

People should seriously start paying me to put cars they hate in my revised predictions. This time I moved up Verstappen (DNF), Ricciardo (DNF) and Hulk (DNF) and added Ocon (DNF) and Perez (actually didn't DNF, but finished so high up I got zilch for him anyway). Literally 80% of the cars I added or moved up the list DNF'd, and the shocking part is that's about par for the course for me so far.

Oh well, at least I'm so far out of contention now I can just play around with it...

PICK 10 COMPETITION (6 wins, 18 podiums):3rd in 2016 TOP THREE CHAMPIONSHIP (No Limit Excedrin Racing):Champions in 2015 & 2018 | 2nd in 2017 & 2019 AUTOSPORT GP PREDICTOR: 2017 USA & P-F1 Champion

You're original picks would have scored 60 so that's a net loss of 23 points making it 82 points lost so far with strategic late picks, which would have put you in 10th place if you played the game as intended, just saying...........

What I find quite amusing given that you'd forgotten about your original picks, is how different your second picks are like it's some kind of chaos theory?

As you can see I have great faith in my predictive abilities!

Having said that you won last time out and lie 3rd in the champs so it doesn't say a lot for the likes of me.
