    I pretty much made my mind up after the first Bahrain test that Redbull wouldn’t win a Championship this year. And although they have made massive improvements, i still don’t think they will. I also think Lotus in it’s current form will not be on the grid in 2015.

    @Iestyn: Found it, Youtube
    I must say Webber is an exemplary driver. Sub 5% body-fat, well there is nothing more he can do. But as Webber mentions, not all of the current F1 drivers are that fit. I can very well imagine Sutil being way up in bodyfat compared to MW and JB. To me Webber shows that it’s doable to be successful and tall.

    Maybe i’m a bit harsh now, but in my opinion drivers should just get on with it. Obviously it’s not fair, because of the height differences on the grid. But these are highly paid athletes. Just like a swimmer has ultra low body fat at the Olympics, a driver has the be slim for a Grand Prix. And since all drivers finish the race, it’s not too much of a problem yet. The smart ones like Rosberg go round eating potatoes before the race, it’s part of their job. What’s worst is that they need to face the media immediately after the race. They should get some time to recover first. But obviously, that can’t be done in show-biz, cause TV is live…

    Im amazed some still expect Redbull (Vettel) making the top5. In my view, they stand no chance, and are probably worse of now, than Mclaren was last year, and Ferrari the year before.

    1st – Nico Rosberg
    2nd – Lewis Hamilton
    3rd – Kevin Magnusses
    4th – Nico Hulkenberg
    5th – Jenson Button
    6th – Valterri Bottas
    7th – Fernando Alonso
    8th – Felipe Massa
    9th – Kimi Raikkonen
    10th – Sergio Perez
    11th – Sebastian Vettel
    12th – Romain Grosjean
    13th – Daniel Ricciardo
    14th – Adrian Sutil
    15th – Pastor Maldonado
    16th – Esteban Gutierrez
    17th – Daniil Kvyat
    18th – Jules Bianchi
    19th – Max Chilton
    20th – Jean-Eric Vergne
    21st – Kamui Kobayashi
    22nd – Marcus Ericsson

    Thanks for the link!

    Some funny numbers.. Maldonado #13, meaning the bad luck for those he crashes into. Also noticed Sutil taking #99. Vettel taking #5.

    Martin Withmarsh said Magnussen instantly got up to speed at the young drivers test at Abu Dhabi a year ago. If Mclaren are able to give him a car capable of podium place’s, there should be no reason why he can’t do what Hamilton did if he’s that good. F1-racing skills are a different matter, something which only experience brings. If his car isn’t up for the challenge and he finds himself stuck in traffic, than he could be in for a tough season. A bit like Maldonado really. But hopefully better. Much better. And improving.

    @Antonio Nartea, .. Just imagine Bianchi and Frijns in the same team. Boy that would give some fireworks after what happened in WSR 3.5, were Frijns pushed Bianchi wide to then take the title himself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pln1b3pGwW0

    1. Ferrari
    2. Mercedes
    3. Redbull
    4. Force India
    5. Mclaren
    6. Lotus
    7. Williams
    8. Torro Rosso
    9. Sauber

    Had a hard time chosing between Mclaren and Lotus. Grosjean obviously has improved alot, and I actually rate him higher now than Button. But Magnussen is a very highly rated rookie, and think he has way more to offer than Maldonado. Honestly, I think Maldonado is one of the worst drivers on the grid. So that made me put Mclaren in 5th rather than Lotus.

    I bet Vettel will choose #8, as it’s seen as a lucky number in Japan, a county which he loves.

    @Prisoner-Monkeys; Nobody said it would be the 2014 car…

    Alonso probably wouldn’t drive even if it was the 2014 car. He seems to really need a break after the second half of the season. And no wonder, his car has kind of letting him down. Vettel usually dissapears in the winter as well, so no suprice there.
