  1. Still backing up Williams, hoping for some revival.

    1. If could be interesting between Williams and McLaren next year with both using customer Mercedes engines. Since the days when these teams dominated F1 in the early 90s it has often been a case of one having a top works engine whilst the other doesn’t with Williams dominating with Renault and McLaren having a long run of success (though not always titles) with Mercedes and Williams having a brief spell of moderate success with Mercedes.

      With both having the same engines next year and with entirely new car designs being required it will be a straight fight between their engineers which should be a good indication as to whether Williams has still got it.

      In terms of the other variables it’s also quite close, each has an experienced driver with race wins and a title fight under their belt both of whom are considered top drivers but not all-time greats. Both are backed up by young hot-shots (Bottas clearly will have more F1 experience but McLaren clearly think that Magnussen is something special and with major technical changes existing F1 experience may not be as useful as normal).

      1. *Williams having a brief spell of moderate success with BMW

  2. “Mark Webber had left F1”

    You’re just pouring salt on the wound aren’t you?

    J/K, but the gird just wont seem complete with out him. :-(

    1. Yeah, he was so good. Now, with Massa no longer with Ferrari, there won’t be a top team where one driver is hammered into oblivion by their teammate.

    2. meh…doesn’t bother me

  3. I’ll keep stubborn about this and skip the season. I’ll see it again when it becomes F1 again, not a reality show.

    1. @omarr-pepper Oh come on! if there is one season you don’t want to miss is this one, new engine for the first time in years, new driver lineup in every team except Mercedes, a pair of highly talented rookies, intra team rivalries in Ferrari, Force India, Mercedes, maybe even Red Bull?

      Don’t let a ridiculous rule spoil the fun, anyway If you are like me in the end you’ll just give up and watch the races again, the question is how long you’ll last? :P

      1. @mantresx this will be for me tougher than the movie “40 days and 40 nights” but let me try ;P

        1. You won´t make it @omarr-pepper !!!! As soon as you read a newspaper or visit F1fanatic you´ll know you are missing out!!! It will be interesting just beause of the engines alone!!

          1. man, i’d kill myself if i missed 2014 after enduring the entirety of 2013.

    2. What would make it more interesting is graphics showing how each car could perform if it had enough fuel and if the tyres allowed the driver to actually race . It would allow me to moan incessantly with a far greater degree of accuarcy.

      1. +1, LMHO…

  4. The season starts so soon. It’s weird not having to wait month upon month, before being able to see F1 cars!

    Less than a month till the first Jerez test! I wonder when the teams will start announcing their launch dates, it’ll be interesting to see the 2014 cars. However, with such drastic changes I’m sure the launch cars will be very different to the ones they test, let alone the Melbourne ’14 spec cars.

      In previous years some teams waited until the second pre-season test to reveal their new cars but that won’t be possible this year. I’m excited that EVERY team will be rolling out new cars in just a few weeks.

    I’m psyched for the 2014 season. I really hope to see plenty of elbow’s-out action

  6. We still have to wait for this…

  7. That’s what I’ve been searching for with no results… Nobody seems to want to show us what the cars will look like… Could they possibly bolt the V6 in the ’13 cars and run the first test?… Obviously kidding but you never know whit those guys…

    Do you have any ideas Keith???

  8. “Mercedes will supply an extra team next year in the shape of Williams”
    Justo to clarify a bit, it should say: “this year”
    I guess you probably took it from a draft you had already written when 2013 was ending… :s
