Biggest Race Day of the Year!

With Sunday here, I know I'll be spending most of the day watching the Monaco GP and the Indy 500!

I thought I'd start a thread to talk about predictions, the live action, and the post race... Get pumped!

Monaco podium prediction:
1st - Hamilton
2nd - Rosberg
3rd - Vettel

Indy podium prediction:
1st - Andretti
2nd - Castroneves
3rd - Tagliani

Thoughts?

Rosberg takes it!
Red Bull places 2nd and 3rd

(For a car forum y'all certainly not into racing!)

Oh that isn't cool! But hey, at least you get to watch the 500!
Unless of course you are going to it! Are you?

I'll be putting indy on in a bit. I was a huge nascar fan but not so much anymore. Trying to catch as much formula 1 as possible that is just incredible racing. I follow the drags a lot more than I used to, going to Englishtown next weekend!

I always have mixed emotions on this day,all the racing is great but if I stay in to watch it and its nice out I feel like I wasted a day.

If it rains I don't feel so bad.

Guess what? its nice out.

I'll be rooting for the 24, but it's a long shot... he hasn't done as well as the 48. If I was betting money I would guess 18, 48 or the 11 wins this evening.

What a shame it had to end under caution. Still a great race though. At least a Chevy won. Top few I think.

Glad to see Tony win. I've been watching him race for many, many years.

Nice to see some old familiar faces too, Jimmy Vasser, Max Papis, and Alex "Jeeemy, what are Wheaties?" Zenardi.

Around 4 Zs drifting around (magnets?) and then it drifts onto a podium and it says Chevy Camaro.
