Whoever manages to interpret the mood of the Pirelli tyres with the temperature, humidity, track conditions, et. al. of that particular day in Australia will get pole...

So i guess its down to who has the best "tyre whisperer engineer" in their team this year ?.. Didn't they widen the tyre operating window this year in order for less teams to fall through it and for 1 to completely luck out ?

They manipulated the tyres so that they become less durable, so that there are more pit stops, so that, supposedly, the races are more entertaining. From what I have heard during testing, teams still seem to be pretty confused about the tyres and, as ever, it will take them some races to figure them out. Don´t know about the wider operating window, I guess we´ll see in the first couple of races, but as far as the first race goes, yes, I think the lottery effect we had at the beginning of last season will be there this time as well.

Hamilton
Alonso
Rosberg
Button
Vettel
Raikonnen
Perez
Massa
Grosjean
Webber

Top 10 covered by less than 0.5 seconds. Think pole will be in the mid-high 1 23s

That was harder than I expected, to be honest this top 10 is probably a who's who of drivers that will feature, in some variation or another, at almost every race this year.

I see a lot of people going for a Mercedes pole position, if not then Grosjean.

Do Mercedes seriously look like they have awesome one lap pace? I can't really read much from testing.

In the past when teams have not shown there all in testing do we get to see there true speed in free practice or wait for qualifying?

FP1 doesn't show anything, mainly sorting out, FP2 gives long run indication, FP3 gives us the idea of quali pace due to simulation runs.

4 onwards.... who cares.

In the race Perez will take Seb out in the first corner.

And Valtteri will score point(s) in his debut.

Don't ever underestimate a forum members predictions before we have the facit, on the other hand I´m confident I will end with the 'prediction flag' on top.  ;)

Based on their record in testing the Lotuses will probably break before they can finish qualifying!

I think in mine I overestimed Grosjean and McLaren and underestimated Red Bull. I did have Perez for 11th, so even though the position is slightly wrong, I was kind of correct that he may struggle.
