After 5 weeks off finally an F1 Grand Prix this weekend.
Really tough to know who to pick early I think.
Red Bull smashed the field last year, but either a McLaren or a Ferrari have won the previous 10 events.
Kimi Raikonen has won 4 of his last 5 starts here. 2 in a McLaren and 2 in a Ferrari. (in fact he has won every race he has ever finished here... 3 DNFs)
From what I have read Lotus, McLaren and Sauber think this track suits them well.
Button and Perez sound extra confident about their prospects.
Rosberg very consistent here and has never had the car the other drivers with top 6 averages have enjoyed.
One of the few tracks Webber has better stats than Vettel.
Alonso and Button have both DNFed more than 50% of starts here.
Perez put in a Q3 quali performance last year and is talking up his chances and the car's capacity this year.
I'm just not sure which way to go amongst the 4 favorites yet. Think there might be some early value in one of these as a backup if we can pick out the right one though.
Lewis Hamilton +300
Sebastian Vettel +400
Kimi Raikkonen +500
Fernando Alonso +550
Romain Grosjean +1100
Jenson Button +1250
Mark Webber +1300
