before aussie quali its pointless. we will probably then realise how heavy and detuned the merc was in testing.

but you never know.


till aussie quali.

unless its wet and theres carnage then we might have to wait till race.

and if thats wet and carnage we still might not know.

one things for sure. by the end of the season we will definately know.

I am expecting mercedes to dominate again and i think redbull will struggle simply because i think the HP gap to the ferrari PU will be even greater than last season and i think HP will be even more important than last season too.

Careful, you might get splinters sitting on that fence. It's just a bit of harmless fun making predictions.

So screw it I am going out on a limb here:

WDC
1. Riccardo
2. Bottas
3. Verstappen

Hamilton gets disqualified from the championship for too many manic overtakes culminating in a Schumacher-esque Jerez 97 style do-or-die manoeuvre in Abu Dhabi.

WCC
1. Mercedes (they get to keep Hamilton's points despite his WCC DSQ)
2: Red Bull
3. Ferrari

:)

I know it's strange 8) but not as strange as Ferrari being regarded as being better than Red Bull & close to or also being better than Mercedes just after the 1st test being finished.

Mclaren could have lost the WCC in 2007 with both drivers 1st and 2nd in the WDC because the team did not score constructors points in Hungary which was 14 or so points. This was also later over ridden by their complete ban from the WCC after spy gate.

I'm going for JB winning both WDC and WCC after making a surprise return buying Manor and squeezing a Ford engine into a Dalara built chasis with no testing. :]

3. Raikkonen

WCC

Really difficult to predict right now. Ferrari look like they could be within touching distance of Merc, but I'd feel more confident in assuming Merc are holding back than Ferrari are, and Red Bull's position in relation to both is a huge unknown because it seems like the car they ran this past week is even further away from what they'll run in Melbourne than what Ferrari/Merc ran. Anyway:

1. Hamilton
2. Vettel
3. Bottas

1. Mercedes
2. Red Bull
3. Ferrari

I'd guess Hamilton has enough to win the WDC with Vettel just edging out Bottas, but the two Red Bull's scoring enough points to be right there with those two and ultimately lift the team above Ferrari in the WCC.

Interesting to see quite a few people backing redbull.
I think Ferrari have improved alot, but might be pushing a bit during pre-season as they seem to care alot more about how the team is perceived.

I think Merc are taking it easy. Not sand bagging but just taking it easy.
As for RB I think they were getting a base line on the chassis before adding the "extra" bits.
Anyway here's what i think.

WDC
1. Ham.
2.Ric.
3.Ves.

WCC
1. Red Bull
2. Merc
3. Ferrari
