A big majority on this thread staking their reputation on a Ferrari, Vettel. LeClerc win. I wonder are these predictions based on desire or informed impartial assessment.
How can you predict when testing has so many variables, surely the only way is when they hit the race track!


Can only speak for myself but after winter testing I felt Ferrari had the edge and with their momentum over the past few years I thought this would be the year they carried a big enough advantage over the year to hold off Lewis and Mercedes...

:lol: :blush:

(Early days though obviously but its pretty ominous looking from Mercedes)

I think I did it before FP3. I was impressed by Ferrari in testing but I'm not convinced by their ability to maintain an advantage over the season. I've never felt anything other than another Hamilton/Mercedes title, regardless of the winter testing results

Okay, let's say pole in Australia - assuming it's dry - will be 1.1 seconds faster than last year. A 1:20.0 dead.

Okay, I wasn't quite right. Who got the closest?

I said 0.7 seconds. Not for Australia, but for the whole season based on the fastest team.

I think that'll be correct early on, and wrong by the end of the year. We'll see how it works as an average! 8)
