I'm hoping Ferrari have a decent showing this year and Alonso can push Vettel for the championship. Button is an outside chance as well, provided the McLaren can perform well enough for him, and Hamilton doesn't crash him out of races. It's good to see Raikonnen back in the series, but I feel he'll do as good as Schumacher has been doing. Oh, and hopefully Webber can win a few races.

I noticed that the odds for Raikkonen winning the championship have plummeted from 50/1 to 16/1, Lotus have looked really quick in testing, apparently.

They finally booted the italian Trulli. Caterham couldn't stay with that pairing any longer. Petrov should be a fresh breath of air for this team. For F1 sake, let's hope they move closer to the midpack.

Trulli claimed he'd had offers from Ferrari he couldn't take when he was under contract to Toyota. I'd be willing to bet it was a test/3rd driver slot.

Well well, the first race of the 2012 season will soon begin and the F1 circus will travel the globe to select the best driver/car combo on the planet.

I wouldn't fap over the testing times as they really do mean fuck all as a bench mark since the fuel loads, engine mapping, tyres etc... all skew the result. You only have to look at Williams as proof and look how shit they were last season and everybody was saying how quick they looked during testing, same with Toro Rosso. For all we know Mercedes are faster than both RBR and McLaren.

Some say Lotus are looking quick, some are saying it's just a glory run to get more sponsers as they usually do, unlike the front runners who will sandbag until Quali 3 next Saturday. Kimi will have to get past the likes of Rosberg and Schumacher, with Mercedes bigger budget and resources improving the car.

Ferrari are really looking in the shit at the moment, I'm not sure if they are just pretending to be but why would they silence both drivers on the matter if they were not in the shit this year? Even Pat Fry is saying they're unlikely to get on the podium, why go self destuct mode with sponsers if it wasn't fact?

McLaren are looking strong, stronger then RBR car wise IMO, Seb was already rating their long distance pace and they haven't made any major changes to the car. The only problem McLaren will have if they're the best is that they wont be able to support two world champion drivers "100%" over the season or face another 2007 even RBR cut it close in 2010 trying to favour both.

Seb is the defending World champion and it's highly likely RBR will favour him as the reputation of having the "youngest triple world champion in history"... BEATING! Ayrton's Senna's record by about 6years?. He would also become 1 of 3 men in F1 history to go 3 WDC's in a row: Fangio+Schumacher---???Vettel???

McLaren look the best to take the WCC since they got 2 highly rated drivers while Mark could fail to keep up with Sebs pace over the year and I dont expect him to challenge Seb for the WDC.

I reckon 2012 will be a ugly fought WDC title win, Jenson and Lewis will start to bring the daggers out and will look after themselves very early on, refusing to give any space for an easy overtake if they're faster. Lewis I reckon will on purpose refuse to sign another contract with McLaren unless he gets what he wants.

Something on the lines of: "Number 1 status or I leave for Mercedes or Ferrari next year even if I win this year" and holds McLaren to ransom towards the end.

My WDC Prediction:
1st: Vettel
2nd: Lewis
3rd: Jenson
4th: Webber/Rosberg

WCC:
1st: McLaren
2nd: Red Bull
3rd: Mercedes

Good write up Crab paste. The season is looking like another RedBull championship however I'll keep an open mind on this as I think Button and Alonso will take some wins.

My breakdown:

Championship will be down to 3 drivers like always.

1. Vettel has to be favourite because he broke Webber's will to win.

2. Button has the mentality to challenge and Lewis has a few loose screws to tighten before he gets back on a complete season. Lewis is good but for a whole season I don't think he can hold it together.

3. Alonso just because of Ferrari. With all the money they spend and receive from the FIA how can you leave them out. Ferrari will only be competitive because they are good at getting the FIA to BAN technology that they can't mimic.

Outside shots that I'd like to see.

1. Kimi getting a win somewhere and putting lotus back on the map.
2. Rosberg getting a win just to put mercedes in contention

Season is too close to call. Will be sad I only get half of the races in full. I'll probably just watch foreign streams, though.

As for the winner, too tricky to say who will win. Testing doesn't mean anything. But, predictions are fun.

1. Vettel. Clear favourite.
2. Lewis Hamilton. I don't think Jenson's consistency will match up to Lewis getting the occasional podiums.
3. Mark Webber. Think he'll pick enough points to eclipse any other potential challenger.
4. Jenson Button. Can't see the others being fast enough.
5. Fernando Alonso. Think they'll have a solid finish to the season

this season is, like everyone else is saying, too close to call as there is too many teams that are showing relatively good pace in testing....may be wrong with this but i think ferrari may be sandbagging here to get people to underestimate them.
I feel that it will be a battle between vettel, hamilton(if he gets his act together), button, alonso and potentially raikonnen depending on the lotus. also think that the force india could be one of those teams to look out on getting consistant top 6/10 positions this season
