Are they dumping quali in favour of starting in alphabetical order?

Promising in testing - lacklustre in the race: Lotus - got a sneaky feeling that they may sink back into the midfield.

First reprimand: Gutierrez - for having outrageous eyebrows

Will Hamilton make it into Q3?: Yes

Will Massa carry his recent form into Melbourne?: Nope - but Melbourne has not really been a happy hunting ground for him in the past anyway.

First bungled pit-stop: Webber conveniently has a slow stop when ahead of Vettel.

Boring race or exciting?: Exciting - they don't do boring down under

First collision will be between: Sergio Perez, trying to make up for a poor qualifying punts Nico Rosberg into turn 3 on the first lap.

Pole Position: Vettel

Winner: Jenson Button

Top 3: Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso

Extras:

First Person to moan about the tyres: Webber
First person in the wall in practice: Gutierrez


Going out on a limb here...

Qualy Prediction:

1-Vettel, 2-Button, 3-Webber, 4-Alonso, 5-Hamilton, 6-Maldo, 7-Rosberg, 8-Hulk, 9-Perez, 10-Raikkonen 11-Lotus #2, 12-Bottas, 13-Massa, 14-Di Resta, 15-Force India #2, 16-Ricciardo, 17-Pic, 18-Vergne, 19-Gutierrez, 20-Glock, 21-Caterham #2, 22-Marussia #2.

Race

1-Button, 2-Vettel, 3-Alonso, 4-Hamilton, 5-Maldo, 6-Hulk, 7-Raikkonen, 8-Massa, 9-Lotus #2, 10-Bottas

Promising in testing - lacklustre in the race: Lotus. Not everyone who competed at the front this year will be able to do so again. I predict Lotus will be the one team who really falls bac.

First reprimand: One of the Caterham drivers will get fined for speeding in the pits, but a reprimand? Hmm... Maybe Maldonado.

Will Hamilton make it into Q3?: Yes. He'll qualify P6, but will struggle to hold onto that in the race.

Will Massa carry his recent form into Melbourne?: Ish. He'll get through to Q3 and finish top six.

First bungled pit-stop: Perez will get his taste of things to come.

Boring race or exciting?: So-so.

First collision will be between: Rosberg will qualify 8th, make a sluggish start from dirty line, and get hit. Not sure who by though. Potentially Grosjean/Kobayashi/whoever is driving second Lotus.

Pole Position: Vettel

Winner: Vettel

Top 3: Vettel, Button, Webber

Someone should come up with point system for this, and create a spreadsheet with our answers and a prize should be given to those who score the most.

Promising in testing - lacklustre in the race:

Mercedes

First reprimand:

Hamilton, after a fast start he will wear the tyres out and have a collision trying to defend his place.

Will Hamilton make it into Q3?:

Yes but only just. Qualifies 7th

Will Massa carry his recent form into Melbourne?:

Sort of. Not as quick as Fred but in the top 10. Finishes 6th

First bungled pit-stop:

HRT - They will make it onto the grid but half way through the first stop they remember they couldn't afford another set of tyres.

Boring race or exciting?:

Exciting, mainly because the pace of the teams will be difficult to predict

First collision will be between:

First corner between Bottas and Force India's as of yet unconfirmed 2nd driver.

Pole Position:

The finger gimp.

Winner:

As above

Top 10:

Vettel
Button
Alonso
Webber
Perez
Massa
Kimi
Hulk
Rosberg
Maldonado




Being specific, so I look dead smart next March, innit.
