    So, we’ve had this thread for engines, but here is a new topic. Which country will score the most points in the national battle of the 2013 F1 season?

    Great Britain has four representatives, Germany and France have three; Finland, Australia, Brazil and Mexico all have two each. The remaining three drivers of the field are all from a different country each.

    Great Britain
    Jenson Button
    Lewis Hamilton
    Paul di Resta
    Max Chilton

    Germany
    Sebastian Vettel
    Nico Rosberg
    Nico Hulkenberg

    France
    Romain Grosjean
    Jean-Eric Vergne
    Charles Pic

    Finland
    Kimi Raikkonen
    Valtteri Bottas

    Australia
    Mark Webber
    Daniel Ricciardo

    Brazil
    Felipe Massa
    Luiz Razia

    Mexico
    Sergio Perez
    Esteban Gutiérrez

    The remaining three drivers are from either Spain (Alonso), Venezuela (Maldonado), Netherlands (Van der Garde) and represent their respective nations by themselves.

    Therefore — which country will score the most points in 2013?

    @mathers
    Most of your list seems reasonable, but I’d say that Finland and Mexico are very close and could certainly be swapped. Also, I doubt that Australia will beat Spain (Alonso).

    This has been on my mind for a while and Germany scored the most points of any country every year since 2008 so Germany is a safe bet for the country with the most points. My list would be like @sigman1998 although I can imagine it being very close between France and Australia and possibly also between Mexico and Spain but I’m expecting that to be the order by the end of the season.

    I have to say; Finland, Mexico, Spain and perhaps Australia are going to be mighty close.

    Here’s my best bet:

    1. Germany
    2. Great Britain
    3. Mexico
    4. Finland
    5. Spain
    6. Australia
    7. France
    8. Brazil
    9. Venezuela
    10. Netherlands

    Should be Germany – Vettel is likely to be very much in the title fight again, and I expect both Nicos to fight for podiums and perhaps win a race at some point.

    It will be between Spain, Britain and Germany I can ensure that much. Spain only if Alonso dominates the season, otherwise surely between Britain and Germany.

    I’m going with:

    Germany – Vettel will be in the championship hunt, and I expect the Nico’s to be challenging for podiums.
    Great Britain – Button should score most of the points, with Lewis chipping in with podiums and maybe a race win. A podium or two for PdR would be nice too.
    Finland – I expect Kimi to have a strong season. A number of wins and podiums to come close to the championship. Bottas may live up to the hype, but I’m not counting my chickens yet!
    Spain – You can never write Fernando off! I expect him to be close to Kimi.
    Mexico – I think Perez will score well, but I don’t think he’s a championship contender just yet. Gutiérrez may add a decent haul too.
    Australia – I think Webber will be the nearly man again this year! I think it’ll be his last year at RBR too. Riccardo will be under pressure to get points too!
    France – Grosjean just has to do better in 2013! Vergne needs to score some points this season!
    Brazil – I expect Massa to struggle again to begin with. I hope I’m wrong ’cause he’s a nice guy!
    Venezuela – Pastor should score some decent points. I don’t expect a repeat of 2012′s race win though.
    Netherland – “nul points”

    I reckon it’s going to be:

    1. Great Britain – partly out of patriotic pride, partly because I have a niggling feeling that this is Button’s year and partly because I think Hamilton will do better than his detractors think
    2. Germany – because of Vettel, obviously
    3. Finland – Close one between Finland and Spain, but I think Raikannon will do very well and I’m hoping Bottas will prove to be amazing. Also, I’m forlornly clinging onto the idea that Williams is about to reveal a 2013 car that will blow everyone else out of the water as I do every year
    4. Spain – Wouldn’t put it past him to win the whole thing, tbh, but I’m conservatively placing him, and Spain, fourth.
    5. Brazil – I think Massa is going to have somewhat of a renaissance in 2013
    6. Australia – Following the pattern of the last few seasons, Webber will show sparks of brilliance in a few races and then be underwhelming for the rest of it.
    7. Mexico – Perez will probably score a decent amount of podiums, and Gutierrez is in with a shot of winning some points
    8. France – Grosjean will probably do decently, although he has the potential to do amazingly. Vergne might get at least a few points and Pic will get 1 point, if he’s lucky.
    9. Venezuela – Maybe a podium or two for Maldanardo if he doesn’t kill someone first
    10. Netherlands – Van der Garde might score some points if everyone else on the grid dies in a freak accident. And even then it’s unlikely.
