Melbourne, Australia Formula1 GrandPrix Race1 (Spoiler Alert in Advance)

Hey guys as some of you would know im a big F1 fan and looking foward to the first race of the season, my home race Melbourne!!

With only 7 days, and 20 Hours left..
Are any fanatics coming to the event? I am aiming to be there for the 4 days Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sunday


Also closer to the day (before any practice sessions) we can put in our Official Predictions.. for Podium standers(i usually include a 4th aswell ).. Fastest Lap.. and Qualifying Positions ...just to make it interesting..

Those who have me on facebook may be aware i post up my Official Prediction on the Wednesday before the race.. and im actually pretty good, if i do say so myself..!!



Peter

My Ride: BIG FALCON
AUSSIE POWERS PREDICTIONS

1st - Alonso
2nd - Vettel
3rd - Hamilton
4th - Webber
5h - Schumacher

Fastest Lap - Vettel
Pole - Vettel

I wanna make a bold prediction even if he isnt in my top 5, but for some reason i got this feeling Button might snag a win, supposedly the pirellis go off quick so watch for Button

Your dreaming if you think McLaren will be able to get a car into the top 5! They'll be lucky if they manage Q3 based on testing form!
Heidfeld in the Renault (black lotus) is the big dark horse in my book, that car is going to surprise a lot of people.

My prediction is:

1. Webber
2. Alonso
3. Vettel
4. Heidfeld
