1. Who will be competing for the WDC in the final 5 races? Definitely Vettel and Alonso, maybe Button, Perez, Raikkonen or Hamilton
2. Who will win the 2013 WDC? Alonso
3. Who will with the 2013 WCC? Red Bull
4. Which team will under achieve (if any)?
5. Which team will be the surprise package (if any)? Lotus may fight for the titles, Toro Rosso might improve as they've now got James Key
6. Which rookie will impress the most? Bottas
7. How will Perez do against Button? I think he'll do just fine, he might even be better than Button
8. Who will win the Mercedes inter team battle? Probably Hamilton by the end of the season, Rosberg could be faster in the first few races
9. Will Massa be more competition to Alonso, or still be a distant number 2? I don't think it's possible to be any less competition than he was in the first half of 2012. Massa will be an adequate driver for Ferrari but will still be slower than Alonso
10. What will be the biggest controversy of the year?
11. Who will get most race wins? Alonso
12. Who will get most poles? Alonso
13. Who will get pole at Monaco? Vettel

1. Who will be competing for the WDC in the final 5 races? Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen, Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa :eek: (Although both Ferrari drivers fall out of running by India.)
2. Who will win the 2013 WDC? Sebastian Vettel :clap:
3. Who will win the 2013 WCC? Scuderia Ferrari :cool: (closely followed by Lotus GP Renault and Infiniti Red Bull Racing Renault)
4. Which team will under achieve (if any)? Force India (and maybe Mercedes GP if you had high expectations for Hamilton)
5. Which team will be the surprise package (if any)? Scuderia Ferrari and Lotus GP Renault (Both consistently competing for the front row.)
6. Which rookie will impress the most? Max Chilton
7. How will Perez do against Button? Badly (like Kovalainen vs Hamilton 2008)
8. Who will win the Mercedes inter team battle? Draw (like Alonso vs Hamilton 2007, with Rosberg barely edging it because of less DNFs)
9. Will Massa be more competition to Alonso, or still be a distant number 2? More competition. (He starts off better than Alonso, so by 2nd half of the season he leads, causing Ferrari to not apply team orders to let Alonso catch up.)
10. What will be the biggest controversy of the year? Monza 2013 (Ferrari has a chance of beating Sebastian to win the race with Felipe, but do not apply team orders, causing Felipe to finish 2nd when he finally overtakes Alonso in the pit stops and Alonso finishes a distant 3rd.)

12. Who will get most poles? Sebastian Vettel (by a large margin)
13. Who will get pole at Monaco? Mark Webber
14. Who will win the Belgian GP? Kimi Raikkonen
15. Will Lotus win more than 1 GP Yes. (They'll win 4 - all by Kimi, although Grosjean chips in with podiums.)
16. Will Mercedes win more than 1 GP? No. (Their highest placing will be 2nd. Twice each for Hamilton and Rosberg.)
17. Will Caterham close the gap to the midfield? No. (But Force India will slowly fall behind closer to Caterham and Marussia.)
