Slim Pickin’s…crazed star of “Dr. Strangelove” or the overall F1B staff results from the Japanese Grand Prix? Mark and Andrew…just a couple of guys who write for the world’s greatest Formula One blog or our very own versions of Fernando Alonso and Sebastien Vettel? Having once led the staff championship by a comfortable 14 points, Mark has now seen that lead, which he has held since Hungary, dwindle to a single point. By being this week’s sole staffer to correctly pick Vettel for the win, Andrew moves up into the DRS activation zone and tucks himself right under Mark’s rear wing. Meanwhile, by correctly choosing Button for 4th, Laura moves into a tie for 3rd with Todd, as Paul, having also picked the McLaren driver, remains in 4th, but now just 3 points behind them. With only 3 correct picks this week, all of which closed some gaps, things are really heating up as we get closer and closer to the end of the season.
