    1. How many drivers will be classified as finishers in the Australian Grand Prix? = 11
    2. Who will win the FIA’s new pole positions trophy? = Hamilton
    3. Where will Sebastian Vettel finish in the championship? = First
    4. How many races will Kimi Raikkonen win? = 1
    5. Who will score more points: Valtteri Bottas or Kevin Magnussen? Bottas
    6. How many pole positions will Ferrari score? = None
    7. How many races will Williams win? = 3
    8. What will Daniel Ricciardo’s best result be? = Third
    9. What will be the top speed recorded in the speed trap at Monza (in kph)? = No idea
    10. Who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race? = No drivers to be replaced.
    11. And who will take their place? = No replacements
    12. Which driver will collect the most penalty points for driving infringements? = Maldonado
    13. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix? = Vettel
    14. Who will crash out of the most races? = Maldonado
    15. Who will finish last in the constructors’ championship? = Caterham
    16. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided? = Final race

    19. Constructors Champion = Mercedes
    20. Drivers Champion = Sebastion Vettel

    Although pre season testing seems to suggest Red Bull are in trouble, I think the car itself is quick and when they sort they problems out they will come back strongly and Vettel may will another title, after the last few seasons I just don’t think I can write Red Bull and Vettel off yet.

    Whoever does win the Championships I have a bad feeling that the they will be decided because of the double points at the last race.
