Honda reentering is the one thing I am looking forward to see. Also if red bull get their act together Riccardo could be a contender for the title

Cant see past another Mercedes Team win and either Hamilton/Rosberg for title. Probably Hamilton as he seems to be faster come race day.

 

Would not write off McLaren/Honda/Alonso but as its the first season back in the sport I think they will not be ahead of Mercedes or even quite matching on pace.

 

My outside bet would be Ricardo at Red Bull - currently 14/1 on Paddy Power:

 

L Hamilton 4/6

N Rosberg 2/1

F Alonso 10/1

D Ricardo 14/1

S Vettel 18/1

J Button 20/1

F1 is boring. Fastest car qualifies near front of grid. Gets to front of race early on and then eases to victory.

 

Scrap qualifying and rotate the grid each race, that's my suggestion for making it more exciting, none of this double points malarkey.

Would certainly make for interesting viewing when the grid was facing the pitwall or the grandstand.

Lot of sources saying Mercedes have found another 80+ hp.., it will be Hamilton vs rosberg again, hopefully mclaren with Honda and more importantly Peter prodromu will get close..

Ricciardo must be worth a wee each way bet. 

 

Unless Red Bull are about to start the slide down the rankings the way Williams did, from unbeatable cars with every innovation to mid table thinking about past glories with the occasional good result.

He's a good bet to finish 3rd IMO, but RBR could struggle, ranault engine, newey off building boats, prodromu gone to mclaren... They can't win it..

I thought there was talk of another race in the USA at New Jersey with part of the track going through a tunnel & a small part of the circuit in Manhattan NYC. What happened to that.

Lots and lots of people don't find it boring, and to say the cars drive themselves is nonsense.. Especially last season.

I miss Minardi. And Barrichello.

 

I used to be a huge F1 fan getting uo at all hours as a kid to watch the faraway races, but I just can't get into it these days. Especially not since coverage moved.

 

Going to Spa was definitely one of the greatest experiences of my life and I would encourage everyone to make a race at some point.

Some nice looking cars so far. Off to Melbourne this year for the start of the season. Cant see past Lewis again for the title, reliability aside he thrashed Nico last year (despite Sky trying to make it sound a contest)

 

Would love to see the Mclarens come into play

Shame its only temporary. Although I read that many car manufacturers have their road cars in a similar camouflage style livery when they are testing them.

 

Would love them to keep it

The biggest story from testing is the fact that straight out the box the Mercedes did the equivalent of 2 full grand prix in terms of laps run. Single fast laps don't really show if race pace is there yet.

I'd prefer McLaren to move away from the Silver livery. Looks to close to Mercedes.

 

McLaren orange or red and white would be quality.

Thats what Honda have said aswell. So id imagine it may change Test 3/Melbourne.

Thats why they moved to Silver back in 1997 as McLaren Mercedes(and West didnt want the Marlbough Red and White)

Mr. T

Force India have now effectively ended any hopes of Marussia being able to race this year because they voted no to Marussia using last year's car.

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/31158612

 

After all the huffing and puffing Force India did about the revenue distribution not being fair to the smaller teams, then they go stab Marussia in the back like that. Doesn't sit right with me.

Get an extra bit of money for them as they now get a share of Maurissas money
