OK. Qualifying for Belgium is tomorrow. What are the predictions/speculations?

I'll go first. Sebastian will qualify at the top of the field with a Lotus right behind him. Lewis will split the Lotui with Jenson immediately behind them.

The race will be a different matter. Alonzo will finish somewhere in the top 3. If it rains, he will win going away.

Opinions based on rank speculation.

Ok George I'll play. But your predictions have too many conditions! Pick one pole and your podium!

Mine:

Pole: HAM
1: HAM
2: ALO
3: RAI

Qualifying is over. Jensen surprised us all.

In our private pool, Boxer is the provisional leader since he at least mentioned Jensen in his results list. (I make up these rules as I go along. They are arbitrary and capricious and based on momentary whim.)

Not only that, but MAL gets a 3 spot penalty that puts him right next to HAM!!!!

Seems Lewis and team made the wrong wing choice. Hopefully less of a factor tomorrow when DRS use is limited. But he doesn't seem hopeful.

Great job by JB, he walked it. The MP4/27 looks very quick, so the updates must be working.

t-shirt: I agree.

JB: Amazing job. The season is just 1/2 over. Plenty of time to win it all with that kind of pace.

I am a Grosjean fan, but Sunday was ridiculous. This is at least the third time he's crowded others off the track on the first lap (Australia and Monaco come to mind, if I'm remembering correctly). Banning him for Monza is justified.

Great predictions Boxer!

Great race for JB. I'm glad to see him get back on top again. I was worried about him after a series of bad finishes. Sadly SV coming second and MW finishing in points doesn't help McLaren's gain on RBR for the Constructor title!

JB is a great guy and it is good to see him doing well again. Both Jenson & Alsonso are class acts and able to keep cool regardless of the situation. Hamilton seems to have the maturity of the average 12 year old (Tweeting telemetary?????) and Vettel's Princess Stampy Foot routine when everything isn't going right really is funny.

Agree, Maldonado should have been given a 1 race ban as well as a serial repeat offender. Only suprise is that his jump start did not cause a huge pile up.

I'm glad you said Alsonso. For a second there I thought you said Alonso was a class act. ;)
