    * Vitaly Petrov uses the number 13 because he does not consider it to be unlucky.

    ** Team Lotus lose legal battle against Lotus Cars and are forced to change their name. Becomes a Williams-style privateer “name” team, known as Air Asia F1 by Tony Fernandes to avoid confusion with Adrian Fernandez’s Fernandez Racing.

    *** Mark Webber retires at the end of 2012. He spends 2013 on hiatus, before purchasing Toro Rosso for the 2014 season, similar to the MW Arden teams that run in GP2/GP3.

    Because I screwed up, and now I can’t edit it.

    Massa would be at Williams. Chandhok at Sauber.

    Does anyone else think that it’s a bad idea to give McLaren another V6 Turbo? The last time that happened, they won all but one race. Admittedly, that was after years of development, but what if they persuade Honda to build engines again? Or if they get an American manufacturer such as Ford who simply doesn’t care about development costs if their engines win the Championships? The 2014 engine regs may lead to better racing and more teams, but I still don’t think that this has been thought out as well as it should be. Thoughts?

    * Both HRT and Mercedes pull out of Formula One by 2014. Hispania because they go bankrupt, Mercedes because of lack of success despite the budget and resources they have available.

    Even if Mercedes pull out of F1, I still think the Brackley team will be on the grid in one form or another. Maybe even as Honda.

    If Mercedes were to back out, someone else would probably acquire the team. It’s unlikely Mercedes would simply hold onto the team, given that they could make money selling it.

    OK. Michael Schumacher to buy over the Brackley team a year after he retires as a driver. Can you imagine the instant love and hate a team named Schumacher F1 would get?

    lol @ 5. Robert Kubica. Sorry, but that is way unrealistic. I think Kubica will have to work his way back up from another series
