1. Yes he will be.
2. No.
3. Yes, he will win this race.
4. No, solid points finish between 4th and 7th, nothing more.
5. Sure, everyone is beatable.
6. If it rains who knows, in the dry forget it :)
7. Not really, they have fallen back the last couple of weeks. Ferrai vs McLaren, then the rest. BMW is the best of the rest though.

Btw, this thread is a tad early isn't it?

I made it as the Singapore thread seemed to be dying off so I thought we might as well get the talk started.

True when its dry .. Both Mclaren and Ferrari would want to conserve their positions if they are in the top three to take the fight further. But if it rains like it was in Silverstone it would be fantastic !!
