F1-2007 Prediction Update

I had scribbled some of my F1 2007 Season prediction at the start of the year, but was more of a post for fun, but for the last couple of months at every race weekend I planned I will write one, but as we all know it never came through. So here’s my mid-season prediction as to how the season will end (and this ones been thought over a lot of times)

Well lets look at the standings at the end of Turkish GP.

In the drivers championship its still very much even-stevens with anyone in the top four in with a chance. I wont dare pick the order, but I feel it would be Lewis Hamilton who will take home the honors.

Whereas in the drivers Ferrari have come in striking distance (just 11 points) but I have a deep feeling whatever the points situation now be, Ferrari will take home the constructors trophy. And that wont be because of what they do on the track, but off it, and to be precise in the court room over Stepneygate Spy Scandal. Ferrari will make sure that McLaren at least loose all the constructors points.

As for the rest I don’t see much changing. Maybe Nico Rosberg moves up the ladder a bit in the drivers championship and make the world take notice of him (which I believe he already has).

Please do share your thoughts on how you see the season unfolding.


F1 Predictions

AHAA…. It’s the time of the year when you place your bets! Put your money where your mouth is!

OH ya, the F1 2007 seasons is just 3 week away from kick off or flag off to be precise. So, it’s time for some random F1 predictions and a series of foolhardy bets with fellow F1 friends, who for some bizarre reason think they know more about the F1 formbook than me!

Of course, that’s the best thing about this time of year if you’re into F1: you’ve been studying the testing times, reading any and every nugget of information about Renault’s new-improved-and-revolutionary-gurney-flap or whatever, and you’ve no doubt misinterpreted the lot. I’m sure I have.

Anyway, here’s some soothsaying from me. Feel free to reply with your own predictions…

Red Bull Racing: Recent testing has been a disaster. Their pace is slow. The drivers can’t fit the car without a tub of Vaseline and spoon, and Mark Webber having a general strop about anything and everything. This, of course, is a clear case of sandbagging and Adrian Newey has, in fact, built a car that is at least two seconds a lap faster than the opposition. Sadly, the car will break down in every race.

Ferrari: Convention-shunning long-wheelbase car will be the class of the field, but Massa and Raikkonen will offset any advantage by generally driving into each other and handing the championship to a surprised…
