2017 Season Predictions

MBKF1MBKF1 Member Moderator
We've done these for the last couple of years, so let's have another crack. Interesting to see what we get right and wrong.

I would've put it in the F1 Stuff Thread but it'll get buried in piles of posts so at least this way it'll be easier to find in 8 months time!

Copy and paste the list below and whack your answers in.

1. Other than Mercedes, which teams will win races this year?
2. What will be the best result for Renault?
3. Which team will score more points: Williams or Force India?
4. Which driver will out-qualify his team mate most often?
5. Will Kimi Raikkonen remain on the grid for 2018?
6. Will Fernando Alonso remain on the grid for 2018?
7. Who will win the FIA pole position trophy?
8. Who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race?
9. And who will take their place?
10. Which driver will collect the most penalty points for driving infringements?
11. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix?
12. Who will crash out of the most races?
13. Will Pirelli resort to using their ‘backup’ 2016-style high-degradation tyres?
14: Whose engines will McLaren use in 2018?
15. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided?
16. What will be the biggest political story of the year?
17. What will be the most entertaining race of the year?
18. Who will finish last in the constructors’ championship?
19. Who will win the Constructor's championship?
20. Who will win the Driver's championship?

Tough one, but I'll say yes.

    1. Other than Mercedes, which teams will win races this year? 
    Ferrari and Red Bull.
    2. What will be the best result for Renault?
    5th.
    3. Which team will score more points: Williams or Force India?
    Force India based on drivers.
    4. Which driver will out-qualify his team mate most often?
    Hulkenberg. I can't see Palmer being able to match him.
    5. Will Kimi Raikkonen remain on the grid for 2018?
    If he has a season as good as Vettel and no one else really proves themselves then probably if he wanted to.
    6. Will Fernando Alonso remain on the grid for 2018?
    At the moment...probably not unless he gets another seat at a competitive car. I doubt he'll stick with Mclaren if they do as badly this season as they have in pre-season.
    7. Who will win the FIA pole position trophy?
    Hamilton
    8. Who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race?
    I don't think anyone will. Stroll maybe?
    9. And who will take their place?
    Is Lynn still their test driver?
    10. Which driver will collect the most penalty points for driving infringements?
    I'd say Verstappen but he could get away with anything so probably Vettel for getting angry about that.
    11. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix?
    Ricciardo if the cars as close as it was to the front last year and his mechanics turn up.
    12. Who will crash out of the most races?
    Stroll.
    13. Will Pirelli resort to using their ‘backup’ 2016-style high-degradation tyres?
    Probably if the racing is as dull as a lot of people predict it will be.
    14: Whose engines will McLaren use in 2018?
    Honda. At the very least they won't be limited on development. Surely they'll catch up eventually...right?
    15. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided?
    Final round
    16. What will be the biggest political story of the year?
    Something about someone not being happy with the new leadership or something. I'm never good at guessing this one.
    17. What will be the most entertaining race of the year?
    Spa or Montreal.
    18. Who will finish last in the constructors’ championship?
    Sauber
    19. Who will win the Constructor's champion
    Mercedes
    20. Who will win the Driver's championship?
    No idea, I hate guessing this one when we know sod all about the pecking order. I'll say Hamilton but he'll have to fight for it. Think Bottas will give him a tough time and Vettel will likely be right with them. Three way fight in the final race.

    T- "I don't consider you my enemy."

    K- "Oh? I didn't consider you at all."

    T- "Now that's just hurtful..."

    Maybe so, but by having it here the people who post on these forums more than anywhere else are able to answer them. And then at the end of the season we can all have a laugh together at how wrong some of us were, which wouldn't be the case on F1 Fanatic.
