The season is over but still fresh in everybody's minds so I thought it would be a good time to ask what we would like to see in the 2013 season?

I would like, in no particular order:

-That Mercedes build a competitive car so that LH and NR can fight right up there.
-That SP does well at McLaren, challenging Button and getting podiums.
-That Williams improve their speed. PM seems to be a very fast driver and it would be nice to see them fighting closer to the top.
-I really wish Hulk does well at Sauber. He showed good consistency and promise this season.
-That Massa is able/allowed to take the fight to FA so that we can see more racing between Ferrari teammates.
-That teams get a quick grip on the new Pirellis so that they can focus more on pushing, less on trying to figure out tyres.
-That penalties take a smaller role in F1.
-Not been announced and don't believe it'll happen but would love to see changes in the parc ferme, and mandatory use of compounds rules.
-Would like to see aero changes applied to improve close racing.
-Would like FIA to be more strict with questionable moves like the one Ferrari pulled at Austin.
-That KK finds a seat.
-That Lotus gives Kimi a car capable of fighting for the WDC.
-More good circuits like Austin, less bad ones like Valencia.
-Japan, Brasil and Belgium to sign deals for the next 10 years.

Your thoughts?

Top of my list is the end of podium interviews by a celebrity. I'm tired of having to cringe instead of getting some insight into the race like in the old days.

WDC wishlist for 2013:

1. Maldonado/Williams
2. Alonso/Ferrari
3. Kimi/Lotus
4. Vettel/RBR
5. Hamilton/Mercedes
6. Button/McLaren
7. Hulkenberg/Sauber

All within 14 points of each other. Put that in your script Bernie!

Haha, hadn't seen Kimi's comment. It looked like something one could do in a PS formula game. Brilliant.

Mercedes and Hamilton in the lower midfield.
Red Bull's dominance broken.
Perez to beat Button.
Webber to retire.
Maldonado and Grosjean to find consistency to go with their speed.
Sauber, Willliams and Force India to win races.
HRT to survive.
At least one of the rookies to be very impressive.

- Vettel to win the world championship (because I like when records are broken)
- McLaren to win the constructors' (because I like McLaren, Button and Perez)
- Lewis Hamilton to win races (because, frankly, I don't want him to be another Villeneuve)
- Massa not to win any race (because I said he wouldn't win again for Ferrari after what happened Germany 2010 and I don't want to be proven wrong)
- Kimi to finish second in the championship (because I like him but I like records being broken more)
- Rosberg to beat Hamilton (because)
- Barrichello to come back (who doesn't want this?)

My wish list.

Bernie Retires.
Ferrari to have a fast car.
Mercedes to design another dog.
Rosberg to outperform Hamilton
Red Bull to have an equal good car.
Massa to win another race.
Perez to outperform Button.

At last.
Alonso to be 2012 WDC, and win his long overdue third championship.

Yay, wish list!

- RBR build a car that is not perfect and super, and it remains so for the whole season (resulting in, effectively, a season-long tantrum from Vettel)
- Webber gets the championship he so richly deserves
- More Alonso vs Webber greatfights at Spa :p
- Senna goes to Force India/another decent team and wins the wet race at Silverstone
- Mark wins Monaco again <3
- I never thought about it before but Schumi to NASCAR would be lol and great at hte same time

- Marcos wins an oval race!
- Marcos makes the Chase!
- Marcos WINS the Chase lol
- Mark Martin finally wins Daytona

- Craig Lowndes kicks booty at Bathurst again with Casey as his co-driver
- Craig Lowndes wins the championship :clap:

- Josh and Jason get chosen for Team USA at Worlds, kick some booty, and win back three spots for said Team USA
- while Artur wins the right to redeem himself for Russia, wins a silver medal, and proves that he really does have what it takes
- then Artur finally gets some favourable GP selections
- and Josh and Jason turn Senior for good with the latter finally landing the triple Axel

...whoops, sorry, motorsport.

Valtieri Bottas is as quick as his friday testing has shown, and that williams can sustain their upswing in performance.
webber do more than he has done with a car that has won the constructor's and driver's titles for the past three seasons.
ferrari have to deal with a fully functioning massa and the controversy that causes between him and alonso.
button fighting for the title again
will mercedes continue to underperform given their level of investment
a little more grip from the tyres over a little bit longer distance. just enough that the drivers can push a little bit more.

I'd love that!


I'd also vote for:

  • No more KERS
  • Kimi on the podium more.
  • Alonso or Webber WDC.
  • Vettel's index finger broken.
  • Lewis Hamilton out in Q2 regularly.
  • No more Bahrain.
  • No more KERS.
  • Bernie retires.
  • reintroduce refueling.

You can wish incredible things if you want, like the whole field being bunched together and many drivers winning races, competing for championships. But realistically it can get hardly better than it was this year. So more of the same please! Maybe if we had a couple of more title contenders in the final race like in 2010. So perhaps Button can get rid of his mid-season inconsistency, Lotus improve a little bit and join Vettel-Alonso gigantic title battle at the front till the last race.

Ferrari finally get payback and build fast car already in race one and win WDC, WCC as soon as possible. Don't care about title fight until last race because Ferrari was fighting like that, fans were pleased but the Team get absolutely nothing.

Anything but Vettel wining again.

I fear people will soon start to lose interest in F1 that happens.

He is starting to look Schumacher ish and that era nearly killed F1 if your honest.

- Whiting being replaced with fresh blood
- No more goofy "clarifications", be it technical or sporting
- Ecclestone to retire
- F1 sold to someone who is interested to see it as a sporting entity, rather then a token in Casino
- Torro Rosso being sold to an independent owner of RB
- Overhauling race stewardship system
- Stable Sauber
- Technically better AMG team
- Long term plan and stability in choices of racing tracks, so race promoters can do their job properly
- A new entrant purchasing HRT team, and ensuring sustained stability

- Removing Parc Ferme restrictions
- Tires out of headlines and in P4 in terms of importance on the racing grid
- 10000 km track related testing before a season kick-off (no more of races serving as substitute with underdevelopped cars)
- In-season regular track related testing to support ongoing car development

- May best man win (as long as Seb stays on the top of it)!
- Kamui finds a job and overhauls Perez comprehensively.
- No more Alonso/Button whines ("ask Charlie type") which are really embarrassing and tiresome

* RBR and Lotus are same pace-wise.

* If Mercedes still can't compete for wins, then at least a fair Williams vs Merc battle with Maldonado vs. Hamilton fighting for positions.

* Perez getting ownd by Button

* Kobayashi still in

* Rainy Monaco!!!

- Kobayashi to find a decent seat;
- Raikkonen, Hulkenberg, Hamilton and Massa to win at least once each;
- McLaren WCC, Button WDC;
- more races with drivers going for 1 or 2 stops and both being competitive;
- Perez to justify his seat;
- Michelin and Bridgestone to annouce their return to F1 in 2014.

This is what I want, right? In that case...

* Removal of all limits placed on KERS.
* No DRS.
* No parc fermé regs.
* No "both compounds" rule.
* No "start on tyres from qualifying" rule.
* Customer cars to be allowed.
* Freeing up of the technical regulations.
* More even distribution of prize money.
* No anthems on the podium.
* Single one hour qualifying session with unlimited laps allowed.
* Return to 10-6-4-3-2-1 points system.
* Removal of wings altogether or at the very least a spec low-downforce airfoil cross section.
* No more tarmac runoffs.
* Return to proper flags on the podium.
* No radios.
* Removal of testing restrictions.
* Get rid of the franchise model and allow anyone that meets the technical regs to try and qualify. Bring back prequalifying if necessary.
* Get someone with an ounce of common sense to rewrite the rulebook and get rid of the colossal number of grey areas.
* Single car teams allowed.

Not going to happen though.
