Welcome to the 6th round of the second season of the first Oppositelock F1 fantasy selection game known the world over as Formula Oppo! This week we’re heading on down to where the old money meets the new money and the house still takes it all. That’s right folks we’re going to the old Monte Carlo factory on the other side of town.

Last time out Nico Rosberg edged out his teammate for the pole and then ran away with the victory. So good news! Nico is no longer on suicide watch. Lewis tried to make a show out of it after fucking up his start and losing position to Vettle and suffering through a long pit stop and managed to come away with second and a dominant lead in the championship points. Kimi couldn’t get the hang of the latest areo updates to his car and reverted back to an older set up and finished fith and behind his fellow countryman Valtteri Bottas, who jumped ahead of his Williams team mate in the points. Speaking of, Felipe finished 6th. All of the Red Bulls got past the finish line and didn’t explode their engines. Romain was lapped but still got 8th while Pastor collided with him early in the race and broke his rear wing and eventually retired after Fernando Alonso’s brakes gave out forcing him back into the garage. But what about this week?


Three different people have won races so far, equal to that of last year. Could we see a different winner? The assembly line at the plant makes for a parade with the pole rider normally winning, but there have been times where this hasn’t been the case. Will this week be one of them? Will Lewis remember to pack his eye drops? Will either McLaren or Manor score points? Will some sun bathing babe accidentally flash her tits on live TV again? Can Pastor Maldonado make it to the finish line unscathed? Will Chevy ever bring the full Monte back?

Here be your drivers which will probably drive in the race:

Lewis Hamilton- Mercedes

Nico Rosberg- Mercedes

Daniel Ricciardo- Red Bull

Daniil Kvyat- Red Bull

Felipe Massa- Williams

Valtteri Bottas- Williams

Sebastian Vettel- Ferrari

Kimi Raikkonen- Ferrai

Kevin Magnussen Fernando Alonso- McLaren

Jenson Button- McLaren

Nico Hulkenberg- Force India

Sergio Perez- Force India

The Wee Baby Max Verstappen- Torro Rosso

Carlos Sainz, Jr.- Torro Rosso

Pastor Maldonado- Lotus

Romain Grosjean- Lotus

Felipe Nasr- Sauber

Marcus Ericsson- Sauber

Will Stevens- Manor

Roberto Merhi- Manor


My bold predictions?

Q: Nico Rosberg

1. Nico Rosberg

2. Lewis Hamilton

3. Sebastian Vettel

Curse: Pastor Maldonado will eat the wall.

The rest of you have until Q1 to make your picks or else they’ll be thrown into the harbor. Also be mindful that several of you have now missed 4 races and missing one more will land you out of the competition for the rest of the season.


With that said, have a pleasant race.
