FBC Staff Picks: Canadian GP

Like the Monaco Grand Prix two weeks ago, Canada often gives us exciting and unexpected races and is often a favorite of both drivers and fans. The top four in Staff points are now separated by just thirteen points and the bottom four only have fourteen points between them. A sense of normality does appear to be back in place following Max’s Red Bull win two rounds ago, as all Winner picks are once again split between the two Mercedes drivers.

Hamilton leads with five nods to three for Championship points leader Nico Rosberg. Does he F1B staff feel that the tide has turned in the reigning champ’s favor? It does appear so. Everyone has the two Mercs finishing on the podium…except for Grace, who has Rosberg coming home in 4th. Ricciardo or Vettel muscle their way into everyone’s podiums, sometimes in 2nd spot, sometimes in 3rd.

The only staffer to buck the system is Tony, who has Verstappen stepping onto the bottom step of the podium. Now that Maldonado is off the grid and Haryanto hasn’t filled his shoes as being the king of the lap one exit, First Out honors are once again pretty much across the board. Palmer is the only driver with two picks, while one apiece goes to Button, Guiterrez, Massa, Nasr, Raikkonen and he fore mentioned Haryanto.
