    Predictions on the gap between Mercedes and the rest of the field at the checkered flag?

    I'm going with 26 seconds...

    If it rains Hamilton will win. Otherwise I think Rosberg will because this is one of his stronger tracks in my opinion.

    Being a Hamilton fan, I've voted for Rosberg for the past 2 races, and I've liked the results, so I'm going to keep the same prediction :D

    Hoping for dry weather, because Williams have better performance. Also, both cars with points finish as minimum and maybe... just maybe... one of them on the podium.

    It will be interesting to see how Red Bull fare on this track compared to the likes of Williams or Force India. The first two sector's should suit them but they will probably be losing out big time on the third sector to Mercedes powered cars.

    Most important question of the weekend - will Chilton finish his 24th consecutive race?

    Not bad for Ricciardo, outperfoming Vettel 3-1 in qualifying and 5 tenths today, despite the latter being a 4xWDC. ;)

    Who said Ricciardo was crap? We only said Webber was, which has only been reinforced by Daniel this year.

    Also, he doesn't have the personality of a porcupine, so I'm sure everyone finds it much easier to like him than his predecessor.
