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!
