Either Bottas because he's completely race rusty, he hasn't started a race since 2011'

Or the other midfield rookie, Esteban Gutierrez.

Max Chilton will be planted to the backside of the field, he won't be able to cause much trouble.

First crash during a race in 2013?

Hamilton and Massa come together at the start. Or, at the start still, Perez and Grosjean.

In Practice - Bottas will hit the wall first
In Qualifying - One of the Ferraris will spin off first
In The Race - Grosjean will rear end someone into turn 1

Although, as others have stated, the rookies are at least equally as likely.

How about Maldonado into his teammate Bottas (or vice versa)?

In testing: probably Chilton in the Marussia

In racing: probably Bottas in the Williams

just guessing, new drivers in unbalanced or low-downforce cars

Not, unless he is being lapped by Vettel... just saying ;) .

The truth is, that can be anyone. There are of course usual suspects but nobody can be put out of equation in that regard.

It's got to be Grosjean hasn't it? Based on stats it's almost guaranteed to be him.

That said, I hope we have a relatively clean start. I'd rather everyone got to the end in the first race so we can see the pace of the cars and drivers.

That could be true but not you can't tar them all with the same brush, i don't recall many crashes for Pic last year, if any?

As the thread says first crash (but not necessarily in a race), I'd say in the first testing session. Maldonado

I think it will be Lewis.

Eager to impress in a Mercedes that isn't as fast as McLaren, Ferrari or Red Bull he'll try something exciting into turn one. Brake locks, wheel on the grass or similar and he takes out the front runners. Button wins the race.

But I hope not. I want a JB vs Kimi vs Vettel Vs Alonso Vs Lewis fight through the season. Hell, I'd settle for any two of them fighting it out on any given race weekend.

On paper most people would think Grosjean, Maldonado or one of the new drivers, in reality it will most likely be one of these as well.
Team Vettel, Ricciardo, Bottas and Button.

I have a horrible feeling it could be Hamilton... just because he'll be trying to outperform the Merc.

He outperformed the McLaren last yearquite often, and made no single contact.
It's more down to the starting pos, and the Grosjeans , Maldonados, who chrash and whipe out others

Not denying Hamilton had a superb year in 2012, and I want him to trounce the field with his Merc, but I can't help feeling he'll be the first big star crash of 2013.

I know Maldo has the Crashdonado tag well untruly branded on his forehead, but he hasn't been at fault many turn 1/lap 1 incidents so far. IIRC the only blatant one I remember last season was on De La Rosa at Monaco.

I've cursed him now

Lewis is no fool. He has no reason to go out aiming to look a hero in the first race. He'll get his head down and just work hard. I don't expect any poorly plotted moves designed to show the world he was right to move to Merc, not in the first race.

If the Williams is Mid-field. Bottas.

Or Webber reversing into Grosjean.

Grosjean kept getting involved in marginal incidents, only a few were blatantly errors. But sometimes statistics are the best.
