Posted by Carrot on July 22, 2011 | No Comments

Carrot’s Predictions

  • German Grand Prix 2011 Winner – Sebastian Vettel
  • German Grand Prix 2011 Pole Position – Sebastian Vettel
  • German Grand Prix 2011 Fastest Lap – Mark Webber
  • Other predictions – Rain at some point in the race

Some change this weekend, we revert to the Valencia specification exhaust systems and Karun Chandhok is replacing Jarno Trulli at Team Lotus. On the prediction front although Ferrari are still very strong on the basis of practice running, and Mark Webber is faster than Sebastian Vettel, I expect Vettel to do the business again. At his home race and after what must count as his worst race of the year in Britain, he’s sure to want to come back strong and break the spirit of the rest of the field if he’s got the chance. The entire weekend has showers predicted, if they come on strong during the race expect McLaren to play themselves back into contention.

Mark’s Predictions

  • German Grand Prix 2011 Winner – Mark Webber
  • German Grand Prix 2011 Pole Position – Mark Webber
  • German Grand Prix 2011 Fastest Lap – Sebastian Vettel

I have gone with Mark Webber to take the win in Germany. He has looked good in free practice this weekend and after being told to hold station behind Vettel at Silverstone, I think Webber will be out to put one over on Vettel.

Euan’s Predictions

  • German Grand Prix 2011 Winner – Sebastian Vettel
  • German Grand Prix 2011 Pole Position – Sebastian Vettel
  • German Grand Prix 2011 Fastest Lap – Felipe Massa
  • Other predictions – Ferrari will still be ahead of McLaren in the wake of the recent regulations debacle.

Its still hard to look past Sebastian Vettel at any Grand Prix weekend this season. It was no surprise that he put in the fastest lap in the reasonably priced car on Top Gear. Webber has been faster in practice but Vettel always looks more capable of getting a result when it counts. It will be interesting to see whether the decision to reverse the regulation changes at Silverstone will put McLaren back aead of Ferrari or whether Ferrari will continue as the second strongest team. Overall, however, the impact of the changes was probably over-hyped by the BBC and others.
