Honestly, take everything Marko says about Webber with a grain of salt. He seems to have it in for him.

for the UK viewers: suzi perri to be presenting this year... should be interesting. she has high shoes to fill - jake was really good.

i think she did motorbike racing (i dont follow it at all but have huge respect for those guys) and if memory serves me well she did an ok job with it.

...meh she is hot so its all good i guess.

hopefully mark makes marko eat his words!

Nice image

I'm looking forward to this one bit at a time. The car releases should be interesting.

Do McLaren still have their Vodafone sponsorship?

Just read that it expires at the end of 2013, but they'll probably renew it i guess.

Looking forward to seeing what the Lotus will look like, as well as the Sauber and to see if the McLaren has any Telmex stuff on it at all.

im looking forward to the caterhams' release. dat green and yellow paint-job makes it look the best car on the grid.

but respect to mclaren how they managed to avoid that ugly 'duck bill' nose. sleek lines= more speed! (similar to go racing stripes)

So what do we think we will see this year? Less step-nose?

i hope so, but i dont think so. they say to maximise aero and at the same time stay within the rules the only way to do it is to have the step-nose.

hopefully most teams go for the redbull approach, where it was a slope rather than the ugly mercedes which just suddenly started. it looked horrible. i guess paint scheme also draws more or less attention to it depending on how its done.

i say the mclaren engineers should just tell everyone how they managed to do follow the rules and avoid the step-nose, so everyone can just follow them

Good point simmy. It will be interesting to see which way McLaren go though.

There's a new rule this year which allows them to cover it with a 'modesty panel' or something like that.

Ah well remembered. Less step nose it is then.

Also middle of page two with no real championship predictions? C'mon...

WDC : Alonso
Runner up : Vettel

WCC : RBR

I think Massa will do well this year and Ferrari will run RBR far closer in the Constructors than anyone has of late.

I think Button will get a few podiums and a win or two, Perez won't win, but will finish 3rd atleast twice.

Hamilton will get it all together for one glorious weekend. Probably Canada. Other than that there won't be much, however he will have some great drives.

Webber will sadly play even more second fiddle to Vettel. He will grow beards quicker than any other driver though.

Maldonado will show a lot of pace and slightly better results. Williams won't improve much. Torro Rosso will fall further into the clutches of Marussia and Caterham, all three teams will suck though.

Force India will be behind Sauber and Mercedes.

He's the boss. (Apart from Dietrich) You think Red Bull would have trouble filling his seat if he don't comply? Webber is winding down to retirement, as much as I hate to say it and his results in the last three years have pigeon holed him. If you were a team boss would you still offer equal treatment considering the results of the last three years? **** no.

No he isn't. He's just an advisor and also Vettel's manager, I believe. Apart from running the junior team (of which Vettel was a part of, of course), he doesn't have too much say in the hiring and firing of drivers.

Sadly, I agree.

Hmmm, tricky. I don't want to see anything like "maintain the gap" again, but, I don't know.

I'd let them race equally - kinda keeps them on each other's toes and maybe perform just a bit better and stops them getting complacent within the team (I could be wrong though and that this could even hinder them).
Then when a clear leader emerges, focus towards them. Simple.
Especially considering Vettel still has his entire career in front of him, might as well "reward" your retiring driver with the possibility to succeed.
Let him go out on form, respectably.
