1. Helmut Marko says Red Bull-Honda will win five races. How many do you think they will win? I'm a little skeptical of the Honda power being any better than Renault yet. I'll give them four.
2. What will Daniel Ricciardo’s highest race finish be? Third, maybe second.
3. Who will score the most points: Lando Norris, Alexander Albon or George Russell? Norris, followed by Albon, and then Russell (assuming Williams score ANY points).
4. Which driver will out-qualify their team mate the most? Raikkonen over Giovinazzi. Second pick would be Ricciardo over Hulkenberg
5. How many races will Charles Leclerc win? One.
6. How many podiums will be scored by cars other than Mercedes, Ferrari or Red Bull? Last year there was only one (Perez taking 3rd in Azerbaijan). Factoring luck like that one race, plus the mid-field closing the gap a bit, plus Ricciardo's move... I'll go with three.
7. Which driver will win the pole position trophy? I'll bet on what we've seen since testing began and go with Vettel. But if Ferrari lose pace in development or Vettel gets into a funk like the last couple of years, it'll be Hamilton
8. Who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race? Kubica. A dog of a car and someone who hasn't raced for that long aren't a great combination. Swapping Kvyat and Gasly could also be possible. I think Kvyat has more raw talent, and if he's cooled down and matured since his first go at it, it could be a really good move for RBR.
9. And who will take their place? I don't really follow reserve/development drivers and such, so I could be way off on this. Replacing Kubica, Ocon or maybe Sirotkin.
10. Which driver will collect the most penalty points? Grosjean.
11. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix? Vettel.
12. Will Esteban Ocon get an F1 race seat for 2020 – and if so, who with? Williams.
13. Spain, Britain, Germany, Italy and Mexico don’t have deals to hold rounds of the 2020 F1 calendar. Which of these races will get one? All except Germany.
14. How much quicker will this year’s cars be than last year’s? 0.3s
15. What will be the biggest political story of 2019? Claire Williams' leadership of the team.
16. Which driver will use the most engines (ICE), and how many? Verstappen with four.
17. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided? Brazil.
18. Which team will finish fourth in the constructors’ championship? Renault
19. Constructors champion: Ferrari.
20. Drivers champion: Vettel.

I'd say "replacements", plural. I doubt they'll be able to find one person to fill his shoes completely before the end of the season.

My answer is based on the leading times from the fastest team over the race weekend - the gap on average through the course of the season.

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!
