    Although using the betting odds to determine the overall placement isn’t a direct correlation, as the odds are on an individual winning the Title, if you go with the highest odds placing the highest and lowest odds placing the lowest, this is the “The Odds Makers” predictions for the Drivers Championship. I am most surprised at how optimistic they are on Alonso, and pessimistic on Massa and Raikkonen.
    1. Lewis Hamilton
    2. Nico Rosberg
    3. Fernando Alonso
    4. Daniel Ricciardo
    5. Sebastian Vettel
    6. Jenson Button
    7. Valteri Bottas
    8. Daniil Kvyat
    9. Felipe Massa
    10. Kimi Raikkonen

    How the “Odds Makers” stack up the Constructors Championships. They really like Fernando and the new Honda/McLaren Partnership. I have a feeling some of this is affected by the sheer unknown factor of the new Honda power unit.
    1. Mercedes
    2. McLaren
    3. Red Bull
    4. Williams
    5. Ferrari
    6. Lotus
    7. Force India
    8. Toro Rosso
    9. Sauber
    10. Caterham


    Going to go out on a limb and make some super early predictions.
    My Driver Championship Predictions:
    1. Lewis Hamilton
    2. Daniel Ricciardo
    3. Nico Rosberg
    4. Fernando Alonso
    5. Sebastian Vettel
    6. Nico Hulkenberg
    7. Valteri Botas
    8. Daniil Kvyat
    9. Felipe Massa
    10. Jenson Button
    11. Kimi Raikkonen
    12. Sergio Perez

    My Constructors Championship:
    1. Mercedes
    2. Williams
    3. Ferrari
    4. Red Bull
    5. McLaren
    6. Force India
    7. Lotus
    8. Toro Rosso
    9. Sauber
    10. Caterham

    Personally I am pulling for an amazing year for Williams. I want them to pull off a Constructors Championship so bad, but I see it as a huge challenge to take out Mercedes. A few other random predictions:
    1. Williams will win a race.
    2. Red Bull will win a race.
    3. Sauber will score some points, but not many
    4. Nico Hulkenberg, and Daniil Kvyat will make at least one podium appearance.
    5. Vettel will win a race.

    I can agree with everything up to #4, I don't think Kyvat will podium, and Ferrari are still behind the curve even with the engine development loopholes that they and Renault have opened.

    Looking forward to car reveals and testing starting soon!

    The new nose is interesting, and that front wing has a whole lot going on!

    Glad they revised the nose. Can't wait to see the other teams unveil their cars.
    Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.

    Lotus have posted pictures of the new E23 on twitter. No twin tusk affair, thank goodness. Also, Williams have some pics of their stubby nosed machine, looks interesting.

    Sorry for the multiple posts, just feeling a strong sense of excitement!

    Alonso is out for the Australian GP! Looks like Kevin Magnussen will take his place for the race. I feel like it is a very long shot that Honda comes in with a winning combination straight away, but anytime a big name driver is out, it makes me wonder about the Championship ramifications.

    How about Sauber? Van De Guarde has sued them, and won! It appears that Sauber must allow him to drive? That has to be AKWARD! I am still scratching my head wondering how that could happen!

    I've never been a Ferrari fan, Shumacher killed Formula 1 for me for years. It was no fun watching him walk the field every week, and for his team mates to have to make way for him. Now, Vettel, who I have always been a fan of is in red! What is a fan supposed to do?

    Mercedes is looking dominant again! Ferrari is back! Will be interesting to see the Torro Rosso versus Red Bull this year! If you haven't seen qualifying, go watch it! It's about to get GOOD!
