After winning a tenner on the Lottery last night, and also correctly predicting that Scotland would beat France 1-0 in the Euro 2008 Qualifiers (but unfortunately not having enough conviction to put any money on that particular prediction), I’ve a feeling that I’ve become the new Mystic Meg.

Therefore, I feel it only right to turn my newfound powers to the matters in hand at FIA headquarters in Paris.

But to be honest, no matter how many times I’ve thought about it I can’t come up with an outcome that I’m even remotely certain about.

With the football game last night for instance, there can only be one of three outcomes - a win for the home team, a win for the away team or a draw.  Once you have settled on which you think is most likely then you can have a stab in the dark and try to predict the score as well, which is obviously harder but there’s always an educated guess (Scotland were never going to get into double figures against the losing finalists in the last World Cup, so 10-0 was never a sensible option).

There are two main problems with trying to predict the outcome in Paris - the first being that we don’t really know the evidence which obviously makes it difficult to judge whether anyone is guilty and if they are then how severe the punishment should be.

Secondly, the punishment will be handed out by the people in charge of motorsport who as we have seen in the past are incredibly hard to secondguess.  Even when we know the charges and evidence which are being considered, it’s nigh on impossible to have an informed opinion on what is going to happen.

So I guess I will just have to wait and see what happens later today (hopefully they won’t drag it on longer than absolutely necessary), but at a wild guess I will say that Ferrari will beat McLaren 5-4 on penalties.
