    Always fun to look back at these in November to see how wrong we were

      Vettel is nailed on as the best constructor though

    2. You believe there will be infighting at Ferrari, Charles will take 4 wins off Seb, and Seb will still become WDC? You have a lot of confidence in Ferrari’s pace.

      1. Pat Ruadh (@fullcoursecaution)
        10th March 2019, 17:57

        My misplaced confidence in Ferrari knows no bounds!

      2. Yeah, I was wondering about that too @gufdamm, @fullcoursecaution. To me, if Ferrari want to win it and especially if Vettel takes the pole position trophy, that leaves at best an oppertunity to win 1-2 races by Leclerc – either right at the start, if Vettel hits mechanical trouble or gets hit by someone else, or maybe once the championship is wrapped up.

        Sure, if the thing about Charles not obliging to team orders, and he takes a Monaco win that way it would mean he might win a lot. But in that case i seriously doubt Vettel has any chance of beating Hamilton (or in that case possibly even Leclerc) to the title. For Charles to win 4 it would have to be a Ferrari walkover where Vettel claims the title 5-6 races before the end of the year.

        But then, there would be no scope at all of Red Bull winning 2 races anymore, unless you expect Mercedes to wholly collapse and win only a race or two, Leclerc to get 4 wins and Vettel to bang in the rest of the wins. But that doesn’t fit at all with the title being resolved only in Brazil. And in that scenario it is highly unlikely that Mercedes would drop Bottas (because the difference between him and Hamilton wouldn’t be huge) for 2020.

        I was with you until that question though.

    3. I looked back last year prediction. How wrong I was to said “First half-year: Liberty keeps avoiding on telling the teams what the definitive 2021 regulation is.” They still do.

      1. Pat Ruadh (@fullcoursecaution)
        10th March 2019, 18:56

        Last year I said Alonso would have a high finish of 2nd, and that Sirotkin would outscore LeClerc!
        Time makes fools of us all

    4. Q12 is really a bold answer. If it comes true, that will be the biggest drama in recent years.

        11th March 2019, 11:07

        I just imagine the Mercedes board would like a German in their car, and likewise Renault a Frenchman, so if Bottas doesn’t perform, and Hulk measures up against Riccardo, I could see a part exchange deal as everyone is out of contract @enzoli

      2. @enzoli @fullcoursecaution
        I agree. very optimistic that one. i would personally love to see Nico at merc. But i don’t think they Bottas will be such a lousy under-performer. If replaced, that would devastate Valtteri’s confidence.
        On the contrary I expect Latifi to replace Kubica for the second half of the season.

    WCC – Ferrari
    WDC – Vettel

    1. So you expect it to be a fight between the two Ferrari’s for the throphy? There is no way the team would not impose a rule to help Vettel win at latest by the half season mark if Hamilton was still within reach of the title (and since you say Hamilton clearly outperforms Bottas, Lewis would presumably also win at least 5-7 if he is to be in the title fight), with 3 wins going to Red Bull, that would leave only another 6-8 for Vettel, depending on whether Bottas wins any races at all.

  5. 1 = Depends on Max. I think he is our next WDC when he finally learns to start a season slow and steady

    2 = I pray for a podium, but realistically, 5th/6th?

    3 = I have no idea – Russell

    4 = Kimi or Ricciardo – I’ll go Kimi.

    5 = More than Seb if Seb hasn’t got his head back together – 1, maybe 2

    6 = If the Honda holds together then 1 or 2.

    7 = Lewis

    8 = Stroll

    9 = Mr Magoo

    10 = We all want to say Max don’t we :) Please let it not be Max – I’ll say LeClerc, overambitious.

    11 = LeClerc

    12 = No

    13 = Germany and Italy for sure – hopefully Britain and Mexico – Spain I’m not sure.

    14 = Not noticeably.

    15 = Williams white-hot meltdown which has started before we even turned a wheel in anger!

    16 = Ricciardo trying to get something out of very little.

    17 = The one where a driver has so many points that he cannot be beaten.

    18 = Red Bull.
    I predict problems with the new engine/manufacturer teaming. With Max still being a crazy kid. With Gasly not playing support, and with a dysfunctional management going in three different directions at once.
    (OK I’m sticking my neck out on this one – feel free to copy/paste this and push it in my face at the end of the season)

    How Gasly out-banzai’d Max, resulting in over a dozen DNFs for both. However, with Liberty’s Fan Stewards Button, most were declared ‘racing incidents’. The Fan Stewards Button was Liberty’s answer to FE’s critically acclaimed Fan Boost. Also served as an aspirational cost-saving budget cap measure – no need to employ know-it-all former drivers, when know-it-all fans can make bad calls just as well for free.

    The next stage in cost-cutting and fan engagement will be the F1 Fan CFD App. Available on all platforms – consumes all available processing – not compatible with F1 Streaming App or Fan Stewards Button. The Fan CFD App will assist Liberty and Ross to develop designs that allow the cars to follow closely without grievous performance loss. This time for sure.

    Rumours swirled that the CFD App was just bitcoin mining malware designed to assist sagging share price and fulfil Liberty’s new revenue sharing agreement with the teams.

    8. Who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race?
    Although I believe some teams will want to replace, there is no real replacement option besides Ocon and he won’t drive a Red Bull or Toro Rosso… I doubt Alonso will demand to make a race in 2019. So, no one.
    9. And who will take their place?
    Highest chance is Ocon driving a Williams but still very very minimal chances to me, just answered this in case I get the previous one wrong ;-)

  86. I don’t know if it is just because I will only be able to watch highlights this year or just a lack of time but I have not followed the build up to this season as much as I normally do, but I thought I would try to answer these questions anyway.

    1. Helmut Marko says Red Bull-Honda will win five races. How many do you think they will win?
    Four
    2. What will Daniel Ricciardo’s highest race finish be?
    Third
    3. Who will score the most points: Lando Norris, Alexander Albon or George Russell?
    Norris
    4. Which driver will out-qualify their team mate the most?
    Verstappen
    5. How many races will Charles Leclerc win?
    Two
    6. How many podiums will be scored by cars other than Mercedes, Ferrari or Red Bull?
    Twelvty
    7. Which driver will win the pole position trophy?
    Hamilton
    8. Who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race?
    I don’t think anyone will be replaced unless due to injury, but given his history I should probably say Kvyat.
    9. And who will take their place?
    No idea.
    10. Which driver will collect the most penalty points?
    In the past I think I have chosen rookies for questions like this as you hope the other drivers have enough experience not to do anything stupid, but then you look at Grosjean last year. But I will stick with a rookie and say Albon.
    11. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix?
    Vettel.
    12. Will Esteban Ocon get an F1 race seat for 2020 – and if so, who with?
    No.
    13. Spain Britain, Germany, Italy and Mexico don’t have deals to hold rounds of the 2020 F1 calendar. Which of these races will get one?
    Definitely Italy, maybe Spain, Germany may go back to being held every other year, and Britain and Mexico only if Liberty drop their prices.
    14. How much quicker will this year’s cars be than last year’s?
    1-2 seconds.
    15. What will be the biggest political story of 2019?
    Deciding on the 2021 rules and the next Concorde agreement
    16. Which driver will use the most engines (ICE), and how many?
    Albon say 7, Honda will use Toro Rosso to experiment, so it will not just be reliability.
    17. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided?
    Hopefully the last race.
    18. Which team will finish fourth in the constructors’ championship?
    Renault.
    19. Who will win the constructors’ championship?
    Ferrari, I know you shouldn’t read too much into pre-season testing but I just think that we may see a change at the top of F1 this year.
    20. Who will win the drivers’ championship?
    If my prediction of Ferrari for the WCC is correct then I would go with Vettel, he may have been disappointing last year but you don’t become a multiple world champion by luck plus a change at the top of Ferrari may be what Vettel needs and I don’t think Leclerc will be allowed to challenge him at Ferrari.
