As a long time reader and contributor to this site, I decided to look back through my comments to see what rubbish I was spouting about a year ago out of interest. As predicted, most of my comments/predictions were way off the mark. However, the odd one sometimes comes true and so I am establishing this thread as a place to gloat about your own F1 predictions (on anything) that have come to pass and you wish to share with the gang.
I’m not naturally one to gloat, but I feel in some way I must let it be known that I had this thought almost a year ago and now it has happened. I’m interested to hear your F1 fanatic top gloats here… can you top this one? I challenge thee!! The more shameless the better!!
F1 may be on free-to-air television in Britain at the moment but we cannot take for granted that will always be the case. […] Ecclestone would surely love a more lucrative TV deal with Sky to help pay the CVC bill.
I can totally see Hamilton leaving McLaren at the end of 2012. Maybe to a younger team with a bit of potential, like Brawn perhaps. Lewis might not win another title for McLaren in the next three years or so and will probably get frustrated and will want a fresh start.
Also, I think Ross Brawn should tap up Rosberg for next season too. I think Nico and Lewis would work well together in the future in 2013, which is four years away from me posting this and certainly not next year or anything.
In seriousness, I can’t find it but back when the question of Kimi going to Lotus was first raised, I said that I thought it was a mistake for Lotus to sign him and that I thought Kimi would be either rusty from his time away or not motivated enough to make it work.
