2012 F1 season preview

Fernando Alonso, Ferrari, Barcelona, 2012

Will Alonso win more than one race this year?

The curtain is about to come up on a new season of Formula 1.

But before then we get to anticipate what might be for just a few days longer – and that’s part of the fun, isn’t it?

With that in mind, here are 20 question on the subjects that will shape the season ahead.

Post your answers in the comments and come the end of the season we can all reflect on how wrong we were. Especially me.

1. What will be the best surprise?
2. What will be the worst surprise?
3. How many different teams will win races?
4. Who will be the first driver to fail to qualify for a race?
5. How many races will Fernando Alonso win?
6. What will Kimi Raikkonen’s best result be?
7. Where will Caterham finish in the constructors’ championship?
8. Will Michael Schumacher announce a new contract for 2013?
9. How many teams will still belong to FOTA at the end of the season?
10. Who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted?
11. And who will take their place?
12. Which driver will receive the most penalties?
13. Will Robert Kubica start an F1 race in 2012?
14. Who will retire first in the Australian Grand Prix?
15. Who will win the United States Grand Prix?
16. What will be the biggest political story of the year?
17. What will be the most entertaining race of the year?
18. How many points will the winning driver score?
