International The Official: Formula 1 2013 - The Silver Arrows fly ahead!

So its 2013, which means A NEW SEASON OF F1 IS UPON US and I thought it would be best to start a new thread about it!

A few changes in the grid and line-up but nothing too drastic overall. Schuey leaves and Botas enters. Im looking forward to seeing how he copes after showing decent potential.

My prediction: Vettel or Alonso for drivers championship (too close to choose one) and Ferrari for constructors championship.

Wildcard: Mercedes for constructors championship and Lewis for drivers championship. (you never know with Lewis/ Nico + Boss Brawn, they might just pull it off )

and Kubica better return in 2014.

Thoughts? Ideas? Discuss!

one can hope/ dream!

perez for wdc? interesting, you never know, the mclaren was fast last year and now they are just developing one type of car suited to buttons driving and perez can adapt fairly well. he will win a few races but wdc might be asking a little too much form him.

I don't mind who wins as long as it isn't Vettel, and that the racing is as good as last season

I'm more interested in seeing a competition between Lotus and Mercedes than the actual championship. Hamilton and Raikkonen doing a few nascar love-taps.

Also, absolutely no confidence in McLaren.

First page.

I will remain a Lotus fanboy, Kimi and Romain are my homeboys.

And if Bianchi gets his Force India seat, I'll become a Bianchi fanboy too.

Here's to a (hopefully) competitive and entertaining 2013 season!

Hold up! Thought Don was on new thread duties?

Never mind, I just hope that Merc doesn't end up a massive disappointment AGAIN and that SOMEONE stops Seb Vettel from making it 4-in-a-row.

I think he might sign to BMW for DTM or something, I read something about it not to long ago but I'm not sure.

I remember him saying he had a certain contract to drive in F1 this year.


Guess that didn't work out then.

Guess not. Oh well, that's one less person in competition for Bianchi's seat at Force India so. Btw, does anyone know when they're going to announce who gets that seat?

Their car launch is on the 1st of Feb so my guess is sometime before then. Unless they just have a guy with a paper bag with a question mark on it stand next to PDR

Plot twist:

Their new driver is going to be The Stig.

Who knows?

71 days 8 hours 42 minutes and 40 seconds left until Melbourne FP1 as of now; let's get this season started already!
