Here we go again, time for my favourite question of the new year!
I’ve asked this same question ahead of the 2010-2012 seasons as someone with an interest in manufacturer involvement in F1: Which engine will score the most points this year?
Here are the contenders:
Renault – Red Bull, Lotus, Williams, Caterham
Mercedes – McLaren, Mercedes, Force India
Ferrari – Ferrari, Sauber, Toro Rosso
Cosworth – Marussia
There are no changes compared to 2012 (although HRT have dropped out of the Cosworth stable).
In 2012, Renault came top for the first time since I ran this poll (although most people predicted Mercedes at the start of the year).
Renault – 839 points
Mercedes – 629 points
Ferrari – 552 points
Cosworth – 0 points
In 2011 Renault were ahead for most of the year, but finally the most-popular pick Mercedes eventually won by just 8 more points.
Mercedes – 731 points
Renault – 723 points
Ferrari – 460 points
Cosworth – 5 points
In 2010 almost everyone correctly predicted Mercedes would come out on top.
Mercedes – 736 points
Renault – 661 points
Ferrari – 453 points
Cosworth – 69 points
