2011 Predictions - Round 9, Britain

This weekend will see the Formula 1 World Championship return to Silverstone. Home Grand Prix to three drivers, and the majority of the teams.

This is the first Grand Prix at the Northamptonshire circuit since the opening of the new paddock complex, and now with the introduction of much talked about rookie Daniel Ricciardo, it will be the first Grand Prix for several decades that two Australian drivers lined up on the grid together.

The European Grand Prix last time out was rather successful for the Formula 1 Results Predictor. We managed to make six correct predictions, and our guest predictor got the podium correct! Read about Valencia here.

This weekend, we are pleased to introduce as guest predictor, popular F1 blogger Gary Marshall.

Gary runs his own blog, Marshall GP, giving his views on all the goings on in the World of Formula 1.

Once again, our guest predictor has also tried to predict which drivers will fail to finish! This didn't work out too well at the last race, as all drivers were classified. Surely this can't happen in consecutive races?!

Gary has suggested that a return to form may be on the cards for Fernando Alonso, but it is not expected to be too great a race for the British trio.

4. Nico Rosberg - Mercedes
5. Lewis Hamilton - McLaren
6. Kamui Kobayashi - Sauber
7. Felipe Massa - Ferrari

22. Vitantonio Liuzzi - Hispania
23. Daniel Ricciardo - Hispania
24. Jerome D'Ambrosio - Virgin

Interestingly, the Formula 1 Results Predictor has offered a very different idea of where Alonso may finish. Gary has suggested a race win, whilst the F1RP doesn't think the Spaniard will even score points!
The only matching prediction is second place for reigning World Champion Sebastian Vettel.
Both sets of predictions also expect Rubens Barrichello and Kamui Kobayashi to score points on Sunday.
