Race Prediction: Monaco Grand Prix 2009

24 hours ago I was predicting Lewis Hamilton would get his season back on track with a podium finish, possibly even a victory. Of course that is almost impossible now that he starts from the back of the grid after crashing in the first qualifying session yesterday and needing a gearbox change. The hopes of McLaren sit with Heikki Kovalainen today as he starts from 7 on the grid.

The Ferraris seem to back on form with Raikkonen 2nd on the grid and Massa 5th. Somehow Jenson Button managed to pull an amazing last lap out of the bag to get his 4th pole position of the season as Brawn GP team mate Rubens Barichello (happy birthday for yesterday) in 3rd, as Sebastian Vettell fills out the top 5 in 4th. The last person ahead of Kovalainen is Nico Rosberg in 6th.

So, race prediction…

1st – Kimi Raikkonen

2nd – Jenson Button

3rd – Sebastian Vettell

6th – Heikki Kovalainen

12th – Lewis Hamilton
