@kingshark Indeed Mercedes seems so confident and what’s they are requesting or presenting putt them high in the order. Can’t putt them anywhere else than at the top …
@vettel1 Good mention about electrics. Next year’s car will probably host much more electric device and managing than previously and the best team to take advantage of that is probably McLaren (and next in line Mercedes) with their huge knowledge in the matter. However I have not yet heard what is left to the team concerning ERS and that could play a part for McLaren and a bit against RedBull.
For the rest, general feeling is that Lotus will drop a bit but not that much, they still exploited people without paying them for this year and probably having a good basis for next year.
I expect RedBull to start not that strong but coming back to the lead through the year thanks to big development.
I hope ForceIndia will catch up to Lotus.
No real position for the rest, if I had to give an order, that would be (at the start of the season) :
Mercedes, McLaren, Ferrari, RedBull, Lotus, Force India, Williams, Sauber, Toro Rosso, Caterham and Marussia
