Not points predictions but just car pace predictions. Basically in race trim because it seems to be all that matters now.
It looks like Mercedes is faster than Ferrari in race trim already. After 3 races, they are probably qualifying ahead of Ferrari and are the true #2 behind Red Bull. I think Ferrari will improve their tire degradation a little bit and Aston Martin will eb down a little. It will be a dead heat between them for 3rd spot.
It remains to be seen how much staying power Aston Martin has. There were a few over achieving teams out of the gate in 2022 too. Alpha Romeo is doing it again this year. Williams is suspiciously strong as well. Aston clearly has more going for it than just that. But at the same time, it is doubtful that it isnt a factor at all. So to say that they will be in a tie for 3rd with Ferrari isn't underestimating them IMO.
1) Red Bull
3) Ferrari - Aston Martin
5) Alpha Romeo
