    I think Mercedes will win it comfortably, with Ferrari in a close second. Mclaren will get a comfortable third. Though Redbull will struggle in the first half, they will come strongly in the second half to claim forth.

    Fifth, Sixth and Seventh will have real fight between Force India, Williams and Lotus. However showing little partiality to put Force India at top than Williams, and Lotus struggles and finishes at seventh.

    The lower middle order will be a fight between Sauber and Toro Rosso, and occasional surge from Marussia. Unfortunately Caterham will end up in the last position this year too.

    I really think hope Marussia and Caterham get few points or top 15 finishes in few races.

    1) Rosberg
    2) Hamilton
    3) Alonso
    4) Button
    5) Kimi
    6) Vettel
    7) Kevin

    16) Guti
    17) Vergne
    18) Kvyat
    19) Bianchi
    20) Kobayashi
    21) Chilton
    22) Ericcson

    It’s very difficult to do most of these predictions now!We’ve seen so little helpful testing.I will be uploading a re-do of this after/during the Bahrain test.

    Having now seen most of the first Bahrain test it is time for me to re-do
    mine.

    Drivers Championship

    1.Nico Rosberg – 247 points
    2.Kimi Raikkonen – 234 points
    3.Lewis Hamilton – 226 points
    4.Jenson Button – 214 points
    5.Fernando Alonso – 197 points
    6.Sebastian Vettel – 192 points
    7.Daniel Ricciardo – 147 points
    8.Romain Grosjean – 145 points
    9.Kevin Magnussen – 129 points
    10.Nico Hulkenberg – 112 points
    11.Pastor Maldonado – 93 points
    12.Sergio Perez – 91 points
    13.Felipe Massa – 77 points
    14.Adrian Sutil – 62 points
    15.Valterri Bottas – 39 points
    16.Esteban Gutierrez – 35 points
    17.Jean-Eric Vergne – 28 points
    18.Jules Bianchi – 16 points
    19.Daniil Kvyat – 13 points
    20.Max Chilton – 7 points
    21.Kamui Kobayashi – 4 points
    22.Marcus Ericsson – 1 point

    The championship is very close throughout the season and both Mercedes drivers, both Ferrari drivers and, for a while, both Mclaren drivers were in the running.Vettel was in it until he retired for three races on the trot.Red Bull also startes on the back foot but almost won it at the last moment.Rosberg takes it off Lewis with a double-points win at Yas Marina.Kimi was in 4th until he won at Sao Paulo and came 2nd at Yas Marina.

    Constructors Championship

    1.Mercedes – 474 points
    2.Ferrari – 431 points
    3.Mclaren – 343 points
    4.Red Bull – 339 points
    5.Lotus – 238 points
    6.Force India – 203 points
    7.Williams – 116 points
    8.Sauber – 97 points
    9.Toro Rosso – 41 points
    10.Marussia – 23 points
    11.Caterham – 5 points

    The constructor’s is initially split into sections of close competition:
    The battle for 1st between Mercedes and Ferrari
    The battle for 3rd between RBR and Mclaren, a close battle
    The battle for 5th between Lotus and FI, not the closest but still competive enough to provide entertainment.
    The battle for 7th between Williams and Sauber, quite a close and
    competitive battle.
    Then you have STR and Marussia who are battling for 9th, but it isn’t really close enough to be worth following
    And finally, Caterham who are dead last.

    Obviously, points are a little out of the blue :)

    Now that the testing is done, I’m going to redo my predictions

    1. Rosberg – 204
    2. Hamilton – 198
    3. Alonso – 196
    4. Raikkonen – 194
    5. Bottas – 181
    6. Massa – 165
    7. Vettel – 158
    8. Button – 127
    9. Hulkenberg – 112
    10. Ricciardo – 108
    11. Magnussen – 97
    12. Perez – 94
    13. Grosjean – 69
    14. Maldonado – 62
    15. Sutil – 22
    16. Kvyat – 18
    17. Vergne – 12
    18. Gutierrez – 10
    19. Bianchi – 2
    20. Kobayashi – 1
    21. Ericsson – 0
    22. Chilton – 0

    1. Mercedes – 402
    2. Ferrari – 390
    3. Williams – 346
    4. Red Bull – 266
    5. McLaren – 224
    6. Force India – 206
    7. Lotus – 131
    8. Sauber – 32
    9. Toro Rosso – 30
    10. Marussia – 2
    11. Caterham – 1

    The championship is mainly fought by the Ferrari and Mercedes drivers. A good result from the double points race in Abu Dhabi for Bottas allows him to close the gap, while massa falls slightly behind his teammate. Rosberg wins the final race and secures the title while Hamilton beats the Ferraris for second. Raikkonen retires in Abu Dhabi, which sets him back to fourth place in the standings. Vettel is the best of the rest after a poor start to the season from Red Bull. He is able to score many points during the second half of the season, but still can’t match Ferrari and Mercedes and has a hard time with Williams as well, who had an excellent start to the season, but wasn’t quite able to keep up with Ferrari and Mercedes in the development. Meanwhile McLaren enjoy a decent first half, but Soon Red Bull passes them and they fall back slightly in the second half. Force India have success, but aren’t able to fully challenge any of the front runners. Lotus is in their own category. Although with a decent car, they have too much reliability problems to challenge the other teams. Sauber and Toro Rosso are having their own battle, which goes to Sauber due to the early season reliability problems for Toro Rosso. Both Caterham and Marussia are able to score their first points early in the season when not many cars finished the races. Marussia takes the top spot with two points to Caterhams one. Overall, it is a good season, which is only ruined by the double points race, which gives the title to the a driver, who wouldn’t have won it without it.

    I can’t help feeling that yours is the most accurate so far.
    I could be wrong, of course…

    To elaborate on my gut feeling in today’s article:

    1. Alonso
    2. Hamilton
    3. Raikkonen
    4. Vettel
    5. Rosberg
    6. Button
    7. Magnussen
    8. Massa
    9. Ricciardo
    10. Hulkenberg

    General gut feelings:
    – Ferrari to have a poor start, kick into gear when the season hits Europe, with Kimi and Alonso fighting for wins, Hamilton and Rosberg as well. Hamilton somehow with more consistency than Rosberg. Vettel to strike back in Asia. McLaren does well, but will fail to win more than 3 races.
    – Midfield teams score a ton of points in the beginning of the season, but development pace means the end of the season sees a return to the status quo.
    -Hulkenberg to nearly win a race, Grosjean and Magnussen win races. Perez to get a nice share of podiums, like Ricciaro and Maldonado.
    – Caterham and Marussia fail to score points, Caterham announces its leaving F1 around the Italian GP.

    Order at the beginning of the season:

    Top teams:
    Mercedes
    McLaren
    Williams

    Midfield:
    Ferrari
    Red Bull
    Force India

    Outside of top 10
    Lotus
    Sauber
    Toro Rosso
    Marussia

    Backmarkers forevermore
    Caterham

    End of the season:

    Ferrari
    Mercedes
    Red Bull
    McLaren
    Williams
    Force India
    Lotus
    Sauber
    Toro Rosso
    Marussia

    Just to see if I can get any more accurate now the season has started:

    Drivers Championship

    1. Lewis Hamilton – 274 points
    2. Nico Rosberg – 268 points
    3. Fernando Alonso – 209 points
    4. Sebatian Vettel – 197 points
    5. Daniel Ricciardo – 179 points
    6. Nico Hulkenberg – 155 points
    7. Kimi Raikkonen – 126 points
    8. Felipe Massa – 104 points
    9. Kevin Magnussen – 98 points
    10. Sergio Perez – 93 points
    11. Jenson Button – 86 points
    12. Valterri Bottas – 81 points
    13. Romain Grosjean – 47 points
    14. Adrian Sutil – 32 points
    15. Jean-Eric Vergne – 27 points
    16. Pastor Maldonado – 22 points
    17. Esteban Gutierrez – 19 points
    18. Daniil Kvyat – 17 points
    19. Jules Bianchi – 3 points
    20. Max Chilton – 1 point
    21. Kamui Kobayashi – 0 points
    22. Marcus Ericson – 0 points

    Mercedes dominate throughout the season, until late Europe races, where Ricciardo takes a win, as does Fernando, who begins to build up consistent 3 to 5 place finishes. Hulk takes a shock win at Austria, in a crazy wet/dry race where both Mercdes retire due to contact with Maldonado.

    The battle for 7th is really close between Toro Rosso, Lotus and Sauber. Toro Rosso get conistent 7 to 12 place finishes and begin to build up a lead over Sauber, who hold onto 8th from Lotus. Once we hit Europe, Sauber score points a little more regularly, with a highest finish of 7th. Lotus begin to get more level with Sauber and STR after Silverstone and a late season surge from Romain gets them into 7th.

    Marussia are usually ahead of Caterham and get their first points at Monaco when Bianchi, who finally gets going to his 2013 form, finishes in 10th. Chilton gets a point at Austria and Bianchi gets more points at Spa and Brazil, Caterham have a best result of 11th from Kamui at Austria.
