    Ooft that livery looks cool!

    In reply to @andae23 I have heard that Ferrari haven’t ruled out building a LMP in the near future! I’m also hoping for the same to go the other way around and have more manufacturers return to F1

    It is unnecessary. However, it’s infinitely better than the double points in F1. Because each of the 500-milers all are pretty special, and… Well… Longer, it’s not so bad, as oppose to Abu Double.

    @fastiesty That’s a great stat! It’s tough to remember that Massa was actually a very strong qualifier back then. I think it’s clear that Vettel and Hamilton are one and two in terms of best qualifiers on the grid but I wonder who we would all put in number 3? I suspect a lot of people would say Rosberg, but I’m going Grosjean!

    @steevkay I still play Super Mario World (and Super Mario All Stars) whenever it is possible! None of the newer ones have been as good imo. I’ve never fully finished a Zelda game so I may have to give ALTTP a go, especially as I believe it is being remade for the 3DS!

    Maybe not one based in the UK, but I am assuming there are some dedicated blogs over in the states with a good following. Keith does a great job covering the IndyCar on F1F Live when it is on though.

    The occasional Android game. Gran Turismo 6, Call of Duty, Fifa from time to time, and Pokémon X. I finished Tomb Raider not too long ago (might go for Platinum trophy), and a few others. I do hope to start The Last Of Us once I find a copy cheap enough.

    However my true passion in gaming lies in the classics. I’ll never grow tired of my SNES and GameBoy classics!

    For me to invest in a Codemasters F1 game for the first time since 2011 (I was given a free copy of 2012) there are major improvements required. A return of one-lap sprints (like in 2011), and general fun arcade-style things that you can do with friends, either in split screen or online multiplayer. Also being able to customise not only your own face but your own driver number and helmet and possibly even a car livery editor would be great. More classic tracks like 2013 is probably a must, although if they are ones that GT6 also have it will be disappointing. Commentary from either BBC or Sky would be great, as well as a proper podium. Also some variation in reactions and e-mails rather than the exact same thing over and over again. There also needs to be more online modes, Codies almost got this right with F1 Race Stars. The penalty system MUST be fixed. It has taken far too long for them to get it right.

    Oh, and the option to disable double points.

    No excuses now Codies. We have waited 8 years now for a game on the level of F1 06/CE. Time to deliver.

    I was then about to ask about that. It was also only showing news on the main page from a few days ago, but this appears to now be fixed. Thanks for that!

    I’m not going to predict the quali battles or finishes ahead (the latter being incredibly difficult to predict whether both cars will actually finish any race) so I’ll just voice who I feel will do better.

    Red Bull
    Vettel should easily beat Ricciardo, in the races. In qualifying I expect it to be marginally closer. Ricciardo didn’t really pull out the sort of performances in 2 years with STR that Vettel did.
    Vettel

    Mercedes
    I am hoping for Hamilton’s sake he finally gets to grip with the car and the team. Rosberg proved he is a world class driver against Lewis but if Lewis is on 2007, 2010 or 2012 form then he should beat Nico. Otherwise, I’m not too sure.
    Hamilton

    Ferrari
    Alonso wasn’t at his best last season, and especially Kimi, although I think the back issues may have had something to do with his latter performances. I expect Kimi to edge it in qualifying but Alonso to be slightly stronger in the races. Whether Alonso will finish ahead of Kimi though I’m not so certain. Kimi for me.
    Raikkonen

    Lotus
    No brainer. Grosjean.
    Grosjean

    McLaren
    I don’t know what to expect from Kevin, although the team seems really confident he is the real deal. I expect him to beat Jenson in qualifying (hopefully more convincingly than Perez did) but to struggle a bit in the races. Jenson may finish ahead on points but I do hope Kevin has a stellar first season.
    Button

    Force India
    Another no brainer. Hulkenberg. He beat Perez last season whilst in clearly a worse car.
    Hulkenberg

    Sauber
    It’s more a case of who is going to be less unspectacular really. Maybe Gutierrez will have the upper hand here, he did show some good pace towards the end of the season.
    Gutierrez

    Toro Rosso
    That Kvyat guy looks very good. JEV really needs to sort his qualifying pace in the dry out, or he could get beaten by a rookie. We’ve seen it can take GP3 champions a little while to get up to speed though.
    Kvyat

    Williams
    I expect Massa to be far happier here than he was in his later Ferrari days, and I expect Williams to hopefully bring out his strong points, Bottas showed last year he’s a very solid qualifier and managed to beat Maldonado on points. Could be close but I expect the Finn to be on top.
    Bottas

    Marussia
    Bianchi. I expect to see improvement from both though otherwise they could come under fire.
    Bianchi

    Caterham
    Probably Kobayashi. I expect Ericsson to be on a similar level to Chilton last season.
    Kobayashi

    I have a feeling Caterham might go for Kobayashi rather than Kovalainen, I suppose it depends who brings more $$$. No idea who will be in the 2nd car, what is VDG’s budget like?

    drivers will be asked to choose their race number, between 2 and 99, for the duration of their career in the FIA Formula One World Championship.

    Pretty certain that the number 0 won’t be used any time soon. Which is a shame, I like that number.

    Bryan Herta and Dale Coyne are yet to announce their drivers at all so I wonder who they will choose.

    It’s likely Bird will run Indy and likely some street and road courses, which would be good for him.

    I have heard (not sure where, on Twitter late last night) that Facu Regalia is looking for funding to run in GP2, I’ll try and find where I heard it but I can’t guarantee finding it…
