2014 Australian Grand Prix start, Albert Park, MelbourneThe first race of the 2015 F1 season is just ten days away, and it’s time for our traditional attempt to guess what the year ahead might have in store.

Mercedes’ season of joy meant misery for most of their rivals in 2014. The season ahead is likely to turn on whether Ferrari and Renault reduce their engine performance shortfall, and whether Honda’s first turbocharged F1 engine in a generation can approach the awesome legacy of its predecessors.

World champions Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso begin new chapters in their careers. But at the back of the grid some teams are fighting just to stay in the game.

How will the 2015 season unfold? Post your answers to these 20 questions in the comments – and I’ll add mine shortly.

1. Other than Mercedes, which teams will win races this year?
2. Who will score more points: Sebastian Vettel or Daniil Kvyat?
3. What will be McLaren’s best result?
4. In what order will the three Mercedes customer teams finish in the constructors’ championship?
5. Lap times were 1.5 seconds slower on average in 2014 compared to 2013. How much will they change this year?
6. Which engine manufacturer will score more points: Ferrari or Renault?
7. How many points will Sauber score?
8. Who will win the FIA pole position trophy?
9. At which race will Max Verstappen score his first points (if at all)?
10. Aside from Alonso and Magnussen swapping places, who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race?
11. And who will take their place?
12. Which driver will collect the most penalty points for driving infringements?
13. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix?
14. Who will crash out of the most races?
15. Who will finish last in the constructors’ championship?
16. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided?
17. What will be the biggest political story of the year?
18. What will be the most entertaining race of the year?

  56. 1. Assuming another team wins a race, I’d say (most to least likely) Red Bull, Ferrari and maybe Williams. Lotus might get lucky or be better than we think.
    2. If the Ferrari’s good enough, Vettel should be ahead, otherwise Kvyat could do well once he’s adjusted to life in the “A team”.
    3. I’d like to have faith in their ability, having visited their HQ last October. Maybe a couple of 2nd or 3rd places if Mercedes have problems and they sort the car out.
    4. My guess is Williams, Lotus, Force India but the top two could swap if Lotus are really good.
    5. Based on Barcelona I’d say at least a second, as long as there are enough dry sessions to compare
    6. This is tricky. Sauber and Toro Rosso appear to have improved, but I’ll say Renault unless the Ferrari SF15-T is amazing.
    7. They should get on the board this year, but I’m not sure how many points. Maybe around 5 as I can see reliability being a lot better than 2014.
    8. I’ll go for Rosberg, unless Vettel can drag the Ferrari to enough pole positions!
    9. Arguably, one of his best chances could be in Australia – but if it’s not there I think it could be Malaysia or Bahrain.
    10. Excluding anything that has or could happen at McLaren and assuming there is a driver change, I think it’ll be Nico Hulkenberg or Manor driver (but only because of money).
    11. After a solid test in Barcelona, I think Pascal Wehrlein is a good candidate if he’s willing to leave DTM for it. Otherwise it’ll be someone with a lot of money that wants to get round the 2016 superlicence rules.
    12. Anyone other than Maldonado would be a big surprise
    13. I’d say Rosberg if it’s a dry race, otherwise it could be almost anyone (but probably still a Mercedes driver!)
    14. If it’s not Maldonado or a rookie, I don’t know!
    15. Manor will be last (if they make it at all), otherwise I think Force India and / or Sauber
    16. Now that double points have disappeared, it could be wrapped up in Brazil or even Mexico. However on this occasion I’ll go with Abu Dhabi.
    17. Financial trouble continued from 2014, Alonso’s winter test crash (how and why as I don’t think we’ve heard the full story yet), Germany and / or Russia being absent from the calendar, or more ridiculous rule changes (including the ban on significant helmet livery changes).
    18. I’d like to think this year won’t peak too early, so hopefully they’ll all be really good. Would be nice to see Silverstone host this year’s best race.
    19. Mercedes should walk this – I can’t see any other team being close, especially after visiting their HQ in December.
    20. History suggests it won’t be Hamilton, so I’ve gone for Rosberg

  57. 1. Other than Mercedes, which teams will win races this year?
    Williams, Ferrari, Red Bull
    2. Who will score more points: Sebastian Vettel or Daniil Kvyat?
    Sebastian Vettel
    3. What will be McLaren’s best result?
    5th
    4. In what order will the three Mercedes customer teams finish in the constructors’ championship?
    Williams 2nd, Force India 4th, 6th Lotus
    5. Lap times were 1.5 seconds slower on average in 2014 compared to 2013. How much will they change this year? 1 second faster
    6. Which engine manufacturer will score more points: Ferrari or Renault?
    Renault
    7. How many points will Sauber score?
    3
    8. Who will win the FIA pole position trophy?
    Nico Rosberg
    9. At which race will Max Verstappen score his first points (if at all)?
    Austria
    10. Aside from Alonso and Magnussen swapping places, who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race?
    Carlos Sainz
    11. And who will take their place?
    Dont know
    12. Which driver will collect the most penalty points for driving infringements?
    Max Verstappen
    13. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix?
    Lewis Hamilton
    14. Who will crash out of the most races?
    Maldonado
    15. Who will finish last in the constructors’ championship?
    (Manor) / Sauber
    16. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided?
    Abu Dhabi (Bottas)
    17. What will be the biggest political story of the year?
    Honda
    18. What will be the most entertaining race of the year?
    Brazil

  58. 1. Other than Mercedes, which teams will win races this year? Ferrari, Williams and Red Bull, because they improved their engine to close the gap to Mercedes.
    2. Who will score more points: Sebastian Vettel or Daniil Kvyat? Vettel, he will be most to score points and also win a race in any races.
    3. What will be McLaren’s best result? I believe 6th.
    4. In what order will the three Mercedes customer teams finish in the constructors’ championship? Williams to be 2nd, Lotus in 4th, and Force India 6th.
    5. Lap times were 1.5 seconds slower on average in 2014 compared to 2013. How much will they change this year? I hope 1 sec faster.
    6. Which engine manufacturer will score more points: Ferrari or Renault? Ferrari, they could win this race, and score some good points if they can.
    7. How many points will Sauber score? I think 14.
    8. Who will win the FIA pole position trophy? Definitely Hamilton, he is the strongest driver.
    9. At which race will Max Verstappen score his first points (if at all)? Probably Australia.
    10. Aside from Alonso and Magnussen swapping places, who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race? Maldonado
    11. And who will take their place? Palmer
    12. Which driver will collect the most penalty points for driving infringements? Maldonado
    13. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix? Hamilton, he wants to win there because it’s his favourite race track and for him the car looks very beast, hopefully we’ll see.
    14. Who will crash out of the most races? Maldonado
    15. Who will finish last in the constructors’ championship? Manor, they could make a big surprise return but they were slowly and not a team to score points.
    16. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided? We hope Brazil.
    17. What will be the biggest political story of the year? Saving the German GP, and Bernie hopefully sack.
    18. What will be the most entertaining race of the year?
    Maybe Abu Dhabi GP.
    19. I think Mercedes, reason is they could dominate again in F1 with their best engine, hopefully to break records.
    20. Well, it would be Hamilton, but for some reason there will be other rivals to stop him. Looks like car is beast but hopefully he doesn’t win the 4th title and be ahead of Vettel. But I think Hamilton is not that superior to win 9 races in a row just like Vettel did win 9 races in a row in 2 years. He dominated. For me, Hamilton is the 3rd-title man, and sportsman of the year 2015 again. The championship for Hamilton is not going to him next year.

  59. 1. Other than Mercedes, which teams will win races this year? Red bull, Mclaren & Williams.
    2. Who will score more points: Sebastian Vettel or Daniil Kvyat? Vettel
    3. What will be McLaren’s best result? 1st.
    4. In what order will the three Mercedes customer teams finish in the constructors’ championship? Williams, Lotus, Force India.
    5. Lap times were 1.5 seconds slower on average in 2014 compared to 2013. How much will they change this year? 1.5 to 3 seconds
    6. Which engine manufacturer will score more points: Ferrari or Renault? Renault
    7. How many points will Sauber score? 16
    8. Who will win the FIA pole position trophy? Lewis

    1. Williams
    2. S.Vettel
    3. Fifth
    4. Williams(2nd), then Force India(4th), then Lotus(7th)
    5. 0.8 sec. faster avg.

    14. P. Maldonado
    15. Manor GP(If they compete. If they do not, then Sauber)
    16. Abu Dhabi GP(More a wish than my actual opinion. I always want the WDC to be decicded in the very last race, you see, even if that’s at Yas Marina).
    17. Sauber, F.India or even Lotus going bankrupt through the season. Grid hits 16 Cars(!). Bernie doesn’t care. F1 Community riots against him. He’s replaced during early Autumn, by…………….
    18. Hungary GP(Last Year taught me something ;))
    19. Mercedes GP
    20. L. Hamilton or N.Rosberg. I’m willing to wait 9 more months to see the real Duel of the Desert, which 2014 didn’t offered us.

    And in the end, it doesn’t really matter who wins the Crown. Or who gets the most Poles. Or if Bernie goes shacked. Not as long as F1 still stands up, as long as we can cheer for these 18 best drivers of world, and enjoy all the intense drama and action each and every F1 Season has to offer, sitting on the edge of the seat, nail-biting, and all.

    Bring On 2015!

    6. Which engine manufacturer will score more points: Ferrari or Renault?
    Ferrari

    7. How many points will Sauber score?
    Some. Single figures.

    8. Who will win the FIA pole position trophy?
    Whoever gets the most poles. One of the Mercedes drivers.

    9. At which race will Max Verstappen score his first points (if at all)?
    Melbourne, quite possibly. Early, anyway.

    10. Aside from Alonso and Magnussen swapping places, who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race?
    Well, it’s obviously the as-yet-unnanounced second Manor driver. Unless they manage to sign a billionaire future world champion. Who’s also a woman.

    11. And who will take their place?
    Who knows? Someone with money.

    12. Which driver will collect the most penalty points for driving infringements?
    Maldonado.

    15. Who will finish last in the constructors’ championship?
    Manor.

    16. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided?
    It all depends on how dominant Mercedes are. If the others are closer, it might, counterintuitively, lead to an earlier decider because they’ll be less inclined to let Lewis and Nico race. But I’m going to say Abu Dhabi again.

    17. What will be the biggest political story of the year?
    Cash distribution, again. It still hasn’t been sorted, and it’ll carry on being a problem until it is.

    18. What will be the most entertaining race of the year?
    Canada‘s always a safe bet.

    19. Who will win the constructors’ championship?
    Mercedes.

    20. Who will win the drivers’ championship?
    Hamilton. Probably. I’d like to think Nico can come back stronger, but I don’t see it.

    1. Quite bold predictions here and there, @keithcollantine. (E. g. customer team final order, most crashes for a driver during the races.)

    2. Why don’t you think Williams can win races this year @keithcollantine? And why do you believe that Lotus are going to be in front of Williams. I think it is very possible that Lotus are going to pull “a Williams” this year, but it would be their first year in good form (like it was for Williams in 2014) and Williams will probably build on the previous season, don’t you think?

      1. @gordess Just a hunch that the ‘manufacturer’ teams will pull further ahead, that Williams have played it too safe, and that Lotus will have a good year.

    Vettel, but it will be close. He will win this battle on consistency.
    3. What will be McLaren’s best result?
    One or two podiums (3rd places) in the second half of the season.
    4. In what order will the three Mercedes customer teams finish in the constructors’ championship?
    First Williams, than Lotus, than Force India. But it will be close between the latter two.
    5. Lap times were 1.5 seconds slower on average in 2014 compared to 2013. How much will they change this year?
    They will be back at 2013 level, maybe even faster. James Allen’s blog says that Pirelli estimates improvements over 2014 of 2 to 2.5 s.
    6. Which engine manufacturer will score more points: Ferrari or Renault?
    That will be Renault. But this will be decided by the battle between STR and Sauber, not the one between RBR and SF.
    7. How many points will Sauber score?
    Eight. Most of them in the first half of the season.
    8. Who will win the FIA pole position trophy?
    Hamilton. He does not want to lose this again and he has upped his qualifying game. Rosberg had not much room for improvement left.
    9. At which race will Max Verstappen score his first points (if at all)?
    Australia or Malaysia. I suspect he has some very exciting performances early in the season, than has the regular successful-rookie-gets-overcondifent dip, and will be back in competitive terms later in the season. Unfortunately though, STR has lost the development race by then and is confined to 14-20th places.
    10. Aside from Alonso and Magnussen swapping places, who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race?
    The second Marussia driver. That seat will be for rent during their entire season (note the use of ‘their’ here: I doubt they will make it to the end).
    11. And who will take their place?
    Some unknown wealthy pay driver without a seat. But if it will be familiar face, it’s Ferrari giving Guttierez track time in return for discounts on PU’s.
    12. Which driver will collect the most penalty points for driving infringements?
    Maldonado. I haven’t seen any other answers on this forum yet.
    13. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix?
    Rosberg. Hamilton can’t have it all, and Nico is just too good around there.
    14. Who will crash out of the most races?
    See question 12.
    15. Who will finish last in the constructors’ championship?
    Manor with 0 points.
    16. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided?
    Race 16 in Russia. Will be the most boring championship decider of the year ;-)
    17. What will be the biggest political story of the year?
    Bernie stepping down. O no he isn’t. Or is he? Is he still alive anyway? Who are these people around his trailer? Is there anybody in charge of the commercial rights? Eventually Bernie will appear again, resign, have a deep fall and takes as much things along with him, doing way more damage than what should have been necessary.
    18. What will be the most entertaining race of the year?
    Spa, where one or more young drivers and rookies will put up a great fight that ends in tears in the penultimate lap.
    19. The constructors’ championship?
    Manor. Ha no! Mercedes obviously.
    20. The drivers’ championship?
    Hamilton.
