Spain 2010: Round 5 Results


A big congratulations to Fisichella on winning in Spain! Its his first win since Singapore last season and his first for Red Bull, the team he made his debut with back in 2005. Fisi was one of the players to beat in the second half of last year and with a much better start in 2010, he has to be considered one of the key contenders for the championship.

The result sets up an epic battle for the lead in the championship, with no less than five players tied at the top on 41 points. NEA takes the top spot with his two victories to Fisichella's one, with American UnclePeJay and the Ferrari duo of Revs and Karan close behind. Its going to be fascinating to see which of these five leaves Monte Carlo with the best result and the championship lead.

Its a similar story in the teams championship, with Red Bull and Ferrari tied on 82pts apiece, Red Bull holding the advantage thanks to Fisichella's Spanish victory. Lotus are next up in third place whilst another strong showing from Mercedes pairing Montie and McMerc sees the German marque jump another two places to fifth.

Next up: Monaco. Gentleman, place your bets!

Come on Pete, how about spreading the love a little with POW's!? ;) I thought Massa at P6 was a rather good prediction.

I'm rubbish this year! F1 is so unpredictable (well, for me heh). Hopefully things will come around later.
