    Jeez…everyone thinks very highly of Hamilton’s chances on here!

  2. Ninad (@nin13) said on 14th March 2014, 13:55

    I think Vettel will win.
    He will only get better through weekend and get pole and 10th straight win. Perfect start to season and 5th WDC!!

  3. TMF (@tmf42) said on 14th March 2014, 14:27

    I just put in something random – probably the only chance to make big points this weekend.

  4. karter22 (@karter22) said on 14th March 2014, 14:28

    Wow… you could feed a village in africa with so much HAM on this prediction! LOL

  5. 01:27.625 – HAM
    1- HAM
    2- ALO
    3- ROS
    4- RAI
    5- VET
    6- HUL

  6. I am Brazilian here, but I seriously doubt Massa will be a contender. Williams will be a 5th constructor at best.

  7. Andre Furtado said on 14th March 2014, 16:29

    Average Prediction as of now:

    01:28.531 – for Pole (Ham 75%, Ros 17%, MAs 3%)
    1st Place – Ham 54%, ROS 28%, ALO 8%
    2nd Place – Ros 41%, ALO 16%, Ham 16%
    3rd Place – Alo 28%, Mas 18%, Ros 11%

  8. Klaas (@klaas) said on 14th March 2014, 16:46

    I have a feeling that HAM will have a DNF in Australia while RedBull will be mediocre and not make it in top 5.

  9. matt90 (@matt90) said on 14th March 2014, 17:12

    I put Bottas for a sneaky podium, although I already doubt it. I also guessed that one of the Mercedes might retire, so took a punt on that being Rosberg. I’m also betting on the Ferraris starting high up but falling back and out of the top 5 completely.

  10. SPIDERman (@spiderman) said on 14th March 2014, 17:22

    if vettel wins i will be very upset

  11. craig-o (@craig-o) said on 14th March 2014, 19:20

    Predicting polesitter is not too difficult really. Predicting all the top 5 positions however…

  12. Evren (@evrenu) said on 14th March 2014, 19:30

    “d. Double points will not be awarded at any round”

  13. Chris (@cgturbo) said on 14th March 2014, 19:43

    I will be VERY impressed if anyone gets 50/50!

  14. pxcmerc (@pcxmerc) said on 15th March 2014, 5:39

    I’m thinking

    1. Lewis
    2. Nico
    3. Alonso
    4. Button
    5. Vettel

    although this is the first proper race for this new formula, anything can happen. Also Button might get a podium, hes typically quite good here, and I dare say he runs a better race around Melbourne than Lewis. Nico also might win it, hard to make a confident call until a few races have been run at various tracks where downforce and fuel requirements vary enough.

  15. Bluetusk (@bluetusk) said on 15th March 2014, 5:47

    This is awesome. I hope Daniil K’s car is more manageable. I’m not tifosi but Luca M’s warning of trickery leads me to say Ferrari has very long sleeves. So Ferrari is 1,2
