Mine is
Webber >>>>> Barichello > Button > Vetel

Red Bull >>> Brawn

Its a bit complicated for me. It seems I prefer Red Bull but not so much Vetel. But at the moment Im chearing for Red Bulls and Vetel to close the gap but if the last race is between Button and Vetel, I would lean towards Button in that case although Brawn (Ros Brawn) is not my favorite.

what about you guys?

Well, a lot of the guys here are pro-Vettel because apparently he's the new Schumacher/Senna/Messiah and they're all a bit 'Lewis who?' now.  ;)

I'm Button/Brawn all the way. Rubens is getting on my nerves with his constant whinging and I just wish it was possible for him to fall further down the WDC standings without hurting Brawn's chances for the WCC.

BGP definately all the way

Usually i never support anyone and I like when there are multiple different winners but this year I just want more and more of Button. So ATM its a bit dismal

At the beggining of the season I had wild fantasies that Button will win all 17 races, than in China it evaporated. I still however beleive he can beat MSC 11 races record, although it will be tough, he still needs 6 wins and there are only 8 races left.

I think the problem with Rubens is he has a victim complex. Maybe it's justified. But he has a terrible habit of blaming everyone and anything for his circumstances. Micheal, hell even Jenson, when things sucked they got on with the job. When times were hard - like Michael's engine failure at Suzuka in 2006, they are sanguine.

Rubens perhaps is too sensitive for this sport. I tend to forgive his odd moments of indiscretion on account of all he did for Ferrari during his time there. But that outburst on Sunday was completely ridiculous, petulant even.

That's why he's off the screen for me :)

Webber>Button>>Vettel>Barrichello
Red Bull >= Brawn

There is an element of supporting the underdog for the WDC there with Webber, followed by a slice of realism on the prospects for the others. Rubens hasn't done as good a job as the others so far and isn't impressing me with his post-race outbursts.

Both teams are worthy of respect this year. Red Bull just edge it for having the most attractive car this year!

Rubens >>> Webber >> Button > Vettel

I don't care enough about WCC to choose between the teams. A few weeks ago I would've said Red Bull because they seemed like the likeable underdogs but the shoe doesn't really fit after all so... *shrug*

Button. I think his perseverance and loyalty deserve to be rewarded. You won't find many drivers who will endure two difficult seasons for an uncertain future when other, more solid teams are offering drives. Vettel has the makings of a future champion, but I think he's still a little too inexperienced to be truly great. Hopefully he and Button will become a new kind of Schumacher and Hakkinen.

As for Constructors' Champions, I'm backing Brawn, but I think they'll have a harder job of defending it than Button will of his Drivers' lead.

I think Webber WDC would be a fantastic fairy story of a champiopnship, he gets my vote. I only half like Jense for some reason, just not that special or a bit spoiled perhaps, Vettel has a lot of time to come and and I don't really know him yet - but if he's faster than Webbo then he'll deserve it.

Newey for WCC - talent wins as it should in F1; Red Bull does a lot of fun things, it would be great from that point of view too.

The dream would be for Webber to win the WDC.

If he doesn't do it, I'd also be quite happy to see Vettel win it.

And if he cant, then I'm not unhappy seeing Button or Barrichello take it. I'm not big supporters of them, but I certainly dont dislike either of em in the least.

The great thing is that we're almost certain to have a new team and driver take the WDC and WCC this year, no matter which of them it is.

I'd like to see Webber win it, as he's a top Bloke, and my dad worked with him more than a decade ago, if he doesn't win, then as long whiney Rubens doesn't win I don't care.

God I hope Brawn win the WCC. What a fabulous turnaround that would be for 500 employees who were worried about paying there mortgages in December.

As far as the championship goes, anyone but that ungrateful cry baby Barrichello.

But I think it will come down to a fight between Button and........... Webber.... and that couldn't be more perfect as far as I'm concerned.

Hamilton and McLaren with many 1-2s in a row, but that's impossible and won't happen.

From the other guys: Barrichello>Webber>Vettel>Button and Red Bull>Brawn.

Of course, that's what I wish, not what I expect.

Button>>>>>>>>Vettel>>>Webber>>>>>>>>Barrichello is more likely, just as Brawn>Red Bull.

dammit I missed 2004 season completely as I was nowhere near civilization

so it means he'll have to win all remaining 8 races to beat that.

no way. But I0ll still support him as long as there is a chance

Vettel and RBR for the WDC and WCC,respectively.Head and shoulders above the rest,as far as preferences go.

I can speak only for myself,but I don't think choosing Vettel has anything to do with the next big thing bandwagon: I did so because I've followed his career for quite a while (from the MS connection) and do think he is the real deal.Age on his side,3 wins already,very good in the wet: how many similarly talented drivers in the past that've accomplished all this not gone on to become future champs? I daresay Webber wouldn't have been performing as well as he is this season if it was DC in the other seat-Vettel really has forced him to up his game.

Not a fan of any of the mentioned drivers, but if I had to choose it would be Webber + Red Bull.
I like the way Red Bull operates in F1. Open, informal and inventive. Their PR and Communications are the best.

Button>>>>>Webber>Vettel>>>[cut for brevity, imagine 843,532 ">"]>>>Barrichello

Button clear favourite, tough call between Webber and Vettel but Webber edges it as Vettel will have many more chances I'm sure, Rubens last by some margin.

BGP=RBGP

Brawn fairytale (from nearly not making the grid to championship contenders) is superb, but Rubens is an arse. So honours even.

Logic tells me Button WDC and RBR WCC

If it has to be (choicewise) between the obvious it would be Vettel and RBR.

Wishful thinking (drivers in no particular order) Kimi/Massa/Vettel and Ferrari. :love:

I like Red-bull and iam a great admirer of Newey the genius. I would love Webber to take it for he seems to be a more like-able character than Button, who reminds me of his moanings nearly every race when he didn't have a winning car :mad:

My preferences are:

Webber-Rubens-Button-Vettel

Logic tells me unless Brawn screw big time like they are screwing Rubens it will be

Button-Webber-Rubens- Vettel

Red-bull will take the WCC.
