It is very quiet in here. Anyone making some 2014 F1 Predictions?
Do you think Vettel can achieve 5 in a row?
Will Alonso and Kimi get along?
Will Riccardo be able to keep pace with Vettel?

I think Vettel will still be strong and will have a good shot at #5. Alonso and Kimi will never get along, especially when Kimi out performs Alonso from the very first on track session. The power delivery of the new engine package is going to be so different that I think we will see some surprises. Some of the top five current drivers won't adapt well, and some others will rise up. The rookies may have an easier time because they are not having to un-learn previous generation car habits.

from what i've read, many people seem to think the changes wont hinder Vettel's train of success.

What are your guys's thoughts on the double points in the last race? I think its the dumbest shit in the world, there's so many things that are out of everyones control that could end up completely screwing the leader at that point. I think if they want to add some extra points up for grabs, give out some points for fastest qualifying and fastest lap in the race. Itll be spread out over the whole season and anyone can get an extra point here and there (my friend came up with that idea, i thought it was great)

I have a suspicion that newey is going to have a few tricks up his sleeve to get the absolute most out of these new regulations. Also if they actually did have TC for the end of last season and it is still compatible with all the updates should be another easy win for Vettel.

If Vettel wins the championship this year I will sh*t my pants. I cannot stand RBR (perhaps because they are so good) therefore I would really like to see Kimi or Alonso win this year. then I will be super chuffed :)

The driver line-ups are interesting. I never thought Sergio would fit at McLaren. And now Jenson has the unfortunate motivation to win for his Dad's memory (RIP John Button). Kamui back in F1 could spice things as he is willing to take the chances to advance. Very excited to see the new cars and see the progress the teams have made. If they wanted a double points race, have a lottery at each race to draw the double, and once it is done, forget about it till next season, otherwise, $hitcan the idea. Autosport did a double points last race scenario over the entire championship era and only found five or so champions that would have benefitted. Of course my loyalties fall to the Maranello boys, maybe Luca kicked enough ass in the off-season to get the results needed for another constructors champonship!

Sorry, I didn't read your post. The double points thing is rather stupid. But I like your friends idea of having points up for grabs for fastest qualifying, fastest laps and maybe even most places gained in a race. Maybe it will give the drivers more incentive to actually pass a bit more. So if a driver started 13th and finished 7th, they should give the driver 5 points extra, what you guys think?

I like the idea, maybe a point for each place is a bit much, maybe something along the lines of whoever has the most places gained gets 2 points.
Not quite as many points but any amount counts.
It'll be great even for the development teams that are all fighting to get into the top 10.

I think all these ideas of extra points are vastly better than just arbitrary double points.

Definitely some different interpretations of the rules. Lotus have asymmetrical nose extensions which other teams say violate the 'spirit' of the regs. Since Lotus are missing this test, we won't know for awhile. Apparently the RB10 just passed the crash tests days before this first test. Looking forward to more....Kimi on top of the timesheets!

I'm loving the diversity in the front wing design.
Also I had my doubts with the sound of the engines, but after hearing a few of them now, I think they sound great
