Spanish GP 2017

With the Spanish Grand Prix approaching, here I present the forecast for the qualifying and race results. For some not-so-clear reason, the model seems to favour Daniel Ricciardo to start 2nd with Hamilton starting as low as 4th. This could due to his crash last year with Nico Rosberg; the model might have thought that it was Hamilton’s fault after all! Surprisingly enough, Verstappen is expected to start only 6th despite his impressive win in 2016.

I think that Lewis is going to get the pole, locking up the first row with Bottas. I expect the Ferraris to push but only manage a podium while the Red Bulls will struggle a little bit. I’d also keep a close eye on Massa and Sainz!

  1. Pretty arguable results :). I would put Hamilton somewhere in 1-3, Ricciardo after merces and ferraris (and maybe after Verstappen). And I will put Sainz in top 10 because he is Spaniard and it his home track . But will see soon.

    1. Very interesting race although my predictions were not as good this time 🙂

      You were right about Sainz (P7)!
