Race Preview - Spain, by Jack Lowe #KeepFightingMichaelPosted : Wednesday 9th May 2018 16:56:21 pm GMT

Agony and Ecstasy in Azerbaijan

Lewis Hamilton won his first race of 2018 around the streets of Baku. He inherited the win after his team-mate Bottas suffered the misfortune of a puncture driving over debris just a few laps from the finish. The other Finn of Raikkonen came home to take second whilst Sergio Perez finished an excellent third for Force India.

The chaos started on lap 1 with the clash between Raikkonen and Ocon, resulting in the French driver being forced to retire. Sirotkin was another first lap casualty whilst Alonso limped home to the pits after suffering a double puncture. Somehow he managed to finish the race, lending credit to the quality of driver more than anything. It was another nightmare scenario at Red Bull with their drivers crashing, resulting in their second double DNF in 4 races. Other retirements included Hulkenberg and Grosjean - in a rather bizarre incident behind the safety car. Many will be hoping for better luck this time out.

Top 10 - 1. Hamilton, 2. Raikkonen, 3. Perez, 4. Vettel, 5. Sainz, 6. Leclerc, 7. Alonso, 8. Stroll, 9. Vandoorne, 10. Hartley.

Spain

Last year it was Hamilton who claimed victory ahead of Vettel and Ricciardo. It was a close fought battle between the two title contenders and it looks similarly matched this year as well, with Ferrari perhaps having the edge. Traditionally Spain is where teams bring their first major upgrades of the season. McLaren are supposedly bringing their 'B' car which they hope will propel them nearer the top 3 teams and clear of the rest. Who will be the winners and losers from this first round of the in-season development war?

2018 podium forecast - 1. Vettel, 2. Hamilton, 3. Raikkonen

Fantasy Game

Hamilton's first win of the season saw him claim top honours with a return of 286 points for those who kept faith with the British driver. He has now closed the gap to Vettel in the overall standings to just over 100 points and with over a 200 point margin to Bottas in 3rd. Which of the big hitters will you back to deliver the goods this round? Perez's podium saw him enjoy a healthy 176 points to the delight of the 57 players who retained the Mexican. Alonso's consistent start to the season continued with 136 points. Sadly Hulkenberg failed to deliver on my tips following his retirement from the race, with just 19 points to show. With Bottas and Verstappen also retiring I hope to give better advice this time! My tips - Hamilton (£16.53m), Alonso (£9.25m), Vettel (£15.87m). Enjoy the race and don't forget to make those bonus picks!

Shanghai Sensation

Daniel Ricciardo produced some stunning overtaking manoeuvres to take victory in China. His pass on Bottas for the lead the pick of the bunch. The other Finn of Raikkonen completed the podium positions. It was a race to forget for Vettel and Hamilton who finished 8th and 4th respectively, Hamilton benefiting from a penalty applied to Verstappen because of his rash move on Vettel. Other notable performers included the ever consistent Hulkenberg and Alonso whom finished 6th and 7th and have both had impressive starts to 2018.

Top 10 - 1. Ricciardo, 2. Bottas, 3. Raikkonen, 4. Hamilton, 5. Verstappen, 6. Hulkenberg, 7. Alonso, 8. Vettel, 9. Sainz, 10. Magnussen

Azerbaijan

The 2017 race contained the most infamous incident of the season with Vettel colliding with Hamilton under the safety, ultimately to the detriment of both drivers in the race. Vettel was given a penalty whilst Hamilton suffered with a freak incident with his headrest whilst leading the race, being forced to make a pitstop and thus conceded a likely win. Amidst the drama it was Ricciardo who emerged victorious ahead of Bottas who pipped Stroll in the Williams at the death to clinch second spot.

2018 podium forecast – 1. Bottas, 2. Vettel, 3. Hamilton

Fantasy Game

Ricciardo’s triumph sees him take top honours this round with a total of 316 points aided with his second fastest lap bonus of the season. He is emerging as the budget pick of the frontrunners as I predicted in my initial selections back at round 1. Will more of you consider picking the likeable Aussie this time round? Vettel’s price has lowered following his disappointment in China, will you be tempted at £15.94M? Hulkenberg and Alonso represent solid investments too at £8.97M and £9M respectively. My tips – Bottas (£13.91M), Hulkenberg (£8.97M), Verstappen (£9.87M)

Enjoy the race and don’t forget to make those bonus picks!

Under The Lights In Sakhir, Bahrain

Back to back victories for Sebastian Vettel makes it the perfect start to the 2018 season for the German driver, advantage Ferrari at this very early stage. He was put under immense pressure by the charging Bottas but didn’t falter as the Mercedes closed in. Hamilton did well to salvage what was looking a tricky weekend to claim the final podium position, and performed a fantastic triple overtake on his way. It was double disappointment for the Red Bulls’ who both retired early doors as well for Raikkonen after a horrific pit-stop incident ended his race early. Thankfully the news is positive for the mechanic who was badly injured, we wish him a speedy recovery.

Pierre Gasly rightly won driver of the day with an incredible 4th place finish for Toro Rosso-Honda, he looked on it all weekend long from Friday practice, a corner well and truly turned it seems. Magnussen made amends from Melbourne with a solid 5th place whilst the 2 McLarens' were in the points once more, 7th and 8th. Top 10 – 1. Vettel, 2. Bottas, 3. Hamilton, 4. Gasly, 5. Magnussen, 6. Hulkenberg, 7. Alonso, 8. Vandoorne, 9. Ericsson, 10. Ocon

China

It was Lewis Hamilton who claimed victory in Shanghai in 2017, ahead of Vettel and Verstappen. A repeat result in 2018 on a circuit which Hamilton always goes strong on would be just the tonic to make for an enthralling start to this season.

2018 podium forecast – 1.Hamilton, 2. Bottas, 3. Vettel

Fantasy Game

Vettel’s victory from pole ensured he earned the most points this round, 307 to be precise, and a price increase to boot – now £16.39m. Is the Ferrari man a must pick after such early season promise? Magnussen duly delivered on my tip with a good haul of 147 points, proving good value for money. Gasly was the star of the show however in that department, his 230 owners will be delighted with the 157 points return for their investment of £5/4.69m, a snip. My tips – Hamilton (£16.02m), Grosjean (£8.07m), Gasly (£5.51m).

Don’t forget to make those bonus picks! Enjoy the race!
