Chinese Grand Prix 2014: B/R Experts Predict Pole, Race Winner and More
Luca Bruno

The Chinese Grand Prix is upon us, and our Bleacher Report F1 team are predicting the key results in this year's race.

Mercedes have dominated the early season races, and many are expecting them to stay in front for at least the first half of the season.

But there could be rain during the weekend in Shanghai, and that could yet shake up the field.

Here are our best guesses:

How the scores are calculated

The right answer earns you one point, except in the case of total finishers where you can be two cars either side. However, if you predict the exact correct number of finishers, you pick up two points.
