The long break is, F1 is back with European GP at Valencia street track. It is time to start making some predictions. Here is round 11 of our prediction game.
When making the predictions remember there will be some new faces in the cars. Felipe Massa is still recovering from the injuries he suffered four weeks ago in Hungary, Luca Badoer will take his place. Renault will be racing in Valencia at the end after court of appeal overturned the the one race suspension imposed on the team by stewards in Hungary. But instead of Nelson Piquet we will see another rookie – Romain Grosjean.
The weather people expect hot and dry weekend in Valencia, take it into the consideration when making your predictions. But do not forget that there are concrete walls all around the track, driving errors may result in safety car deployments.
As usual you can wait till the last moment before the qualifying or make your prediction right away to make sure you do not miss the round (and change your prediction later if you feel like doing that). But do remember, the deadline is the start of the Saturday qualifying session ! So, make your prediction for the pole position, fastest lap and top eight finishers in the comments below this post. The results of round 11 will be published on Monday after the race. Good luck !
