Is it too early for some to make their prediction about this years F1 season?

Here are my early predictions. Mercedes and Ferrari are close, but Mercedes will again have the upper hand and win both championships. Kimi Raikkonen will win two or three races this year. Red Bull with their same line-up will be strong but will come under pressure from McLaren who will be much stronger runners with the works Renault power.

What do others think this early?

Hamilton for his 5th WDC, Merc for the constructors, then Ferrari / Red Bull / McLaren fighting over the rest, one thing I do know is most of the time I won't have the time to watch them live :lol:, the only time that happens is if I get to the British GP, still fast forward on the recordings does have its advantages ;)

Clever move by Red Bull putting the Honda engine into the Toro..but they have no other options.. Ferrari & Mec will not supply Red Bull engines.. If the Honda engine comes good & performs as it should watch it go into the Red Bull by 2020.. RB will dump the Renault Engine asap .
Meantime its too early to predict who comes out on top .. wait for the shake down tests & it will be interesting to see how the Renault F1 factory team shine or not.. they have the Hulk & very capable winner.
I wonder if Seb can keep his cool all season .. maybe another championship for him if he keeps focus, but the same can be said regards Lewis?
The genuine nice guys like Ricky & Valtery will play the supporting roll as always & never quite get to be champion.. unless one comes home second place in "every" race .. now that would be a good result.
Force India & Williams .. i hope they both do well on the limited budgets.
Mclaren .. Ron Dennis was 100% correct saying they will not win any championship without a factory engine.
The FIA should also give a point to the Fastest Lap in each race .. to liven up F1 & give something back to the Fans.
F1 should be free to air for every race or it will die.

Not too early, F1's been reasonably predictable for the last few years.
Especially since Merc got a heads up on what the engine regs would be two years before anyone else, or at least as rumour goes anyway. :?

Here's what my crystal ball says...


1st, Merc
2nd,Redbull
3rd,Ferrari

Williams will be nowhere.
Renault will be 4th or 5th but don't expect much.
Force India will be 5th or 6th.
McLaren difficult but dowt higher than 5th.

It's Looking ok for Torro Rosso with a year of development ahead, hopefully move forward during the year and could Spring a surprise.
Alfa (sauber) ?????

Alonso for the title after seb and winge bag Hamilton drop the ball. That would make a great year but sadly I think it will be more or less the same as last year with the only change being Alonso taking the odd podium instead of Red bull.
