    I don't think I've picked a single winner, apart form the times I forgot to vote, so someone else can do the scores. Call me petty, it's true.

    Just thinking on the weather - tough enough race for CLC with the Jules Bianchi crash there. If it’s the same conditions as when he was killed, it’ll be even more tricky...

    The earlier forecast I saw had the Typhoon pass close by on Saturday, who knows, but if so could be a Sunday morning Qually.

    If it's as wet as they say it's going to be surely the smart money is on Nigel Mansails.


    On a side-note, it's the perfect opportunity to try out a reverse grid.

    If Ferrari had turned up like this from the start we'd of had an amazing season.

    That's one way to try and overhaul Hamilton, shed bits of your car and throw it at him.
