Another Grand Prix. Another pole position for Sebastian Vettel.
I mean, I get it: the guy is at the peak of his abilities, and he’s driving a car that has been engineered to within an inch of its life. But this crap is getting boring, because another pole for VET basically means another win for him. His pace is so phenomenal that no one else has a prayer of catching him. Unless Hamilton gets a better start when the red lights go off, and manages to hold VET up for a few corners, this race is as good as done from the first lap.
In other news, it’s good to see Hulkenberg getting into the top 10 again. I honestly believe that Ferrari made a mistake going back to Raikkonen and passing over Hulk in the process. Don’t get me wrong: I think RAI is an amazing driver, and I think he’ll have a great year next year, but Hulk is an up and coming driver with amazing potential. I mean, seriously, look what the guy is doing with what could be argued as a back-marker car?
My prediction for the podium on Sunday: VET, ALO, RAI. In that order.
