If Chilton keeps up his record of finishing every race, he may actually get points in the early part of the season.

Well, I'm putting £10 on Button for the championship...

 

All depends on the car, stranger things have happened however :) He is a points hover...

We have no idea what's going on and what will happen. However, I'm going to go with Alonso's long-time, constant, honored appreciation:

I had a dream last night which may shed some light on things. The big surprises were that Mark Webber appears to have rejoined Red Bull, and the first race has been changed to Canada. Anyway, on the penultimate lap the order was Vettel/Webber/Hamilton, with a massive gap between Webber and Hamilton. For some reason the Red Bulls had to do a pitstop before the final lap, but tripped over each other in the pit lane, eventually emerging behind Hamilton with Webber now in front. So first race result (in Montreal) will be Hamilton/Webber/Vettel.

Whoever said that Mercedes engines may have an edge and Renault engine be behind others, may have a point based on first two testing days. After all, this state of game were vaguely rumoured before tests already.

 

However, I think the big difference is whether we are predicting early season pecking order or end-season WCC standings.

My 5 cents is that even though Red Bull-Renault could struggle early on with engine issues and they may indeed be 4th or 5th like some predict, I would still put them comfortably into WCC top 3 by the end of the season. By the end of the year things will get back to "normal" as will Renault catch up better with other engines. Of course, if they award double points for the last three races, it will help RBR even more and the early season stuff barely counts as we speak...

They will only gain ground back if they have a performance edge and great reliability... If the engine is down on the Mercedes, they are going to have to push the limits to make up the difference which could turn the car into a bomb all year long.

Red Bull - Their car will run so hot that Koveleinien will get his come back once again, this time as the fire truck fire fighter.

Ferrari - WCC material if Pirelli hears their whispers.

Merc - WCC material if Pirelli puts out tires that can handle their monster engine.

McLaren - Wanted to try something different with their rear suspension, expect a breakdown every race.

Williams - Fights for 3rd in the WCC.

Sahara Force Índia - Same as team willy.

Lotus - Declares bankrupcy and with Genii as the biggest loaner Lopez takes the PDVSA money and runs.

Sauber - Same as team willy.

Marussia - 8th in WCC.

Toro Rosso - Same as Red Bull, but lacks resources to put out the fire. Inherits the Burn sponsorship from Lotus.

Caterham - Loses the Airbus sponsorship, the corporation stating 'not enough air, too much bus', DJ Malloy pulls out of the circus, goes kingfishing.

My predictions

 

1, Ferrari. Not as quick as Mercedes, but drivers making the difference.

2. Mercedes. Quickest, but driver lineup not as good as Ferrari. Driver champ between Alonso and Hamilton.

3. McLaren. Merc engines best but drivers not as good as Ferrari or Mercedes.

4. Red Bull.Will start the year badly, but be best or near to best by the end of the year.

5. Williams. Merc engines and Pat combine to create the best of the rest.

6. Force India. Hulk makes the difference in midfield battle.

7, Sauber. Could be higher if not for such a lacklustre pay driver lineup.

8. Lotus. Renault causing problems, in addition to poor driver lineup.

9. Torro Rosso. Renault causing problems.

10. Murussia. Bianchi will once again make the difference.

11. Caterham. Renault problems combined with driver problems.

By the end of the year things will get back to "normal" as will Renault catch up better with other engines.

Except, engines will be freezed after the winter tests, so that won't be possible.

I'd have those two swapped. Rosberg has proven in the last two years to be mighty around Monaco and Hamilton, well. As long as the car is not a donkey he is a god around Hungary (in fact he has proven he is still a god when the car is a donkey 2009, 2013)

That's not entirely true, they can still develop for installation, cost and reliability reasons. The engines will be frozen gradually, see Appendix 4 to the Technical Regulations:

I think each driver has tracks where they really excel at, for Seb it's hard to choose from but I'd say Suzuka, Abu Dhabi also for Lewis, Jenson for Australia, Nando seems to do well in Spain,

I doubt Vettel will only win one race this year (according to Jimisgood's list).

 

I am actually really hoping for a Hamilton vs Rosberg showdown. That would be epic considering they are mates.

Right, so testing is now done and our predictions are no longer quite so blind, so perhaps it is time to update them, and maybe we can revisit this thread at the end of the season to see how stupid we all look when Red Bull romp to their fifth title on the trot. Anyhow, mine...

 

Mercedes.

McLaren.

Ferrari.

Red Bull

Force India

Williams

Sauber

Lotus

Torro Rosso

Caterham

Marussia

1. Mercedes

2. McLaren

3. Ferrari

4. Williams

5. Force India

6. Red Bull

7. Lotus

8. Sauber

9. Toro Rosso

10. Marussia

With the changes in Sprint Cup rules, I can't see anyone else than Johnson winning the cup this year. Incidentally, due to F1 rule changes I'm more excited about Nascar than about F1.

What turns up at the first race of the season maybe completely different by the we get to Europe. Melbourne predictions only.

1. Mercedes
2. McLaren
3. Ferrari
4. Force India
5. Williams
6. Red Bull
7. Lotus
8. Sauber
9. STR
10. Caterham
11. Marussia

I have a sneaky feeling Caterham may score their first point in the first few races. Might be 6 laps behind but I don't think they will care.

5. Button - 1 win

6. Hulkenberg

7. Magnussen - 1 win

8. Vettel - 1 win

9. Perez

10. Massa

 

I'd switch those two. Otherwise, not a bad prediction and I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be fairly accurate.

Melbourne GP....

The Merc and Ferrari powered teams will battle eachother and all run out of fuel. The Renault powered teams will then be left to fight a battle of attrition, with the massive sidepod Caterham finishing/winning...

The podium will be filled with the 2 Maurussia's (which completed the most laps prior to running dry).

No one else finishes...

I am really glad we have Nico Rosberg in the second Mercedes. If it turns out that Merc are indeed dominating the field, he should still be able to fight Lewis and produce a good spectacle for the WDC, unlike Red Bull in 2011 and 2013.

Watching pre-season interviews it's also nice to finally see him as one of the most possible title winners, not just a midfield driver that has no chance to grab the trophy as I used to receive him previous seasons. I also hope his career goes up from this point on.

Well if Merc are streets ahead I wonder if they've made it harder for themselves by having two top drivers that will be taking points off each other, the only other top team in the same position is Ferrari.

If they're streets ahead, it won't be a problem.

It might be a problem if they will find themselves with a slight advantage over a team that is focused around one driver.

Which is only Red Bull really, so no worries for Mercedes at the moment.

Well after two test sessions it's beginning to look like a Mercedes and McLaren front end. The top midfield will be very close Williams, Ferrari, force India, and yes I will put red bull in there with them. I imagine a very mixed first half of the season ala 2012. Which is probably good for red bull while they catch up. I foresee the final battle being between Mercedes and McLaren , with Ferrari and red bull running up close behind them.

So testing is now over, and what do we see ? Well as many of us predicted, Merc seem to be the Top Dog amongst the manufacturers, Williams have pulled something magic out of the hat and have posted the second quickest times with good reliability, and of course Red Bull are having a nightmare. I'm sure that they shall pull it back eventually, but so much ground will be lost by then. I think that Massa will start well, but fade towards the middle of the season when it is clear thast Bottas is much faster then him, allowing Ferrari to steal second place in the WCC. Merc will romp home to win with a healthy margin. The title is theirs to lose.
In past years Ferrari have won championships because of driver number one preference, but with Kimi on board, I just don't see this happening, certainly not to the extent that Massa was treated, so if they are a bit slower then Merc and Williams it might be a bit harder for them to gain ground in that way.

Why does everyone think Massa will fade and Bottas being much faster?? This is bases on absolutely nothing. If any, based on testing times, the only benchmark we have so far, Massa is the faster of the two.

They were around the same considering the fact Bottas has done his best time on softs, not supersofts.

 

You seem to get very outraged each time somebody places Bottas above Massa. But you should be aware that it's understandable to believe that a driver who was below 50% of his team-mate's points for 3 years in row is not going to set the world on fire.

Well, with testing over I predict...

Mercedes and Ferrari gunning for the titles.
A tight group fight between Williams, Force India, McLaren and eventually Red Bull, for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th.
The best Red Bull can get for the end of the year is 4th IMO.
Marussia will beat Caterham, by virtue of reliability if nothing else.
Lotus are going to have a dire year, just keeping up the back of the field in front of Marussia and Caterham.

2014 may be about Alonso vs Hamilton, with Rosberg and Raikkonen staying in the mix.

I think the first couple of races will be tremendous spectacles, even if it is because cars are breaking down left, right and centre.

 

After that, I think people may start to tire of races being too much of a lottery, fuel saving being too extreme and labelling F1 boring.

 

Then by the early stages of the European season, the leading teams will be right on top of fuel economy and tyres and a clear pecking order will emerge, with quality and speed winning each time over reliability and fuel miscalculations etc.

 

Can't wait.

Now that testing is over, I'll use my brain rather than a random number generator to decide my pecking order.

 

1. Mercedes
2. Ferrari
3. Williams
4. Red Bull
5. McLaren
6. Force India
7. Lotus
9. Sauber
10. Toro Rosso
11. Caterham
12. Marussia

 

Mercedes looks extremely mighty which I think everyone can agree on.
Ferrari says they're not where they want to be, but they're still always up there.
Williams is a wild card, but everything seems to be going their way for 2014.
Red Bull I think will be experience their worst start to a season since prior to Vettel joining.
The rest? I'm going to suspect that they'll be about the same as last year, with McLaren and Force India fighting for the "best of the rest" outside of the top four.

I think AUS will be an anticlimax. Mercedes will blow the opposition away (similar to how Mclaren did in 1998). Ferrari's situation will turn out to be worse than anticipated, and they will get outqualified by Red Bull.

You forgot about Perez.

I did, thanks for pointing that out. I had him quite high but then changed my mind and must have omitted him. I have amended my list. I shall bring this up at the end of the season, mostly to show just how bad I am at at predicting the future, because I don't really expect the season to end up anything like as I have predicted. It's just a bit of fun & I don't mind being shown up.

November 2: USA - Rosberg

 

 

Good list in general, but this one made me scratch my head. Lewis was stunning at Austin in 2012, and pretty good in 2013. I would say in equal machinery, he holds an edge over Nico at that track.

My blind prediction is this.

 

For the WDC my head is firmly in 3 minds. I see a decent argument for Lewis and Nico, but I also find it hard to totally discount Vettel/RB. My heart is firmly hoping Lewis pulls it together and secures his long awaited 2nd WDC.

 

I will go with my heart, and say Lewis win be WDC, as there is no fun is sitting on the fence all the time.

 

WCC? I will go with Mercedes, as 2 of their drivers make up the 3 drivers I think have the best chance of becoming WDC.
