I usually hate making predictions but here goes:
1. Other than Mercedes, which teams will win races this year?
Williams, Red Bull. Possibly Ferrari.
2. Who will score more points: Sebastian Vettel or Daniil Kvyat?
Vettel.
3. What will be McLaren’s best result?
Being a Mclaren supporter I want to say 1st. Realistically.... maybe a podium or two in third place if they develop strongly.
4. In what order will the three Mercedes customer teams finish in the constructors’ championship?
Williams, Lotus, Force India
5. Lap times were 1.5 seconds slower on average in 2014 compared to 2013. How much will they change this year?
About a second quicker than last year on average.
6. Which engine manufacturer will score more points: Ferrari or Renault?
Renault but only just.
7. How many points will Sauber score?
Tough one... Around 15 maybe.
8. Who will win the FIA pole position trophy?
Hamilton
9. At which race will Max Verstappen score his first points (if at all)?
Toro Rosso seem to have a habit of scoring in Melbourne and trailing off so I'm going to say the season opener.
10. Aside from Alonso and Magnussen swapping places, who will be the first driver to be replaced or substituted for a race?
The second Manor driver most likely if anyone. I doubt it would happen and I certainly hope it doesn't but if someone did get dropped though I have a horrid feeling it would be Hulkenberg for financial reasons.
11. And who will take their place?
Some pay driver no doubt.
12. Which driver will collect the most penalty points for driving infringements?
No doubt Maldonado is high on peoples lists! I'm going to go with Nasr though.
13. Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix?
Hamilton will no doubt be very hungry for this one with Rosberg winning the last two. Going to say Hamilton.
14. Who will crash out of the most races?
Maldonado just seems to obvious again.... I'm going to say one of the Toro Rosso drivers, most likely Verstappen.
15. Who will finish last in the constructors’ championship?
Think this is decided as much as the winner is. Manor.
16. At which race will the drivers’ championship be decided?
Mexican Grand Prix.
17. What will be the biggest political story of the year?
If Mclaren suddenly becomes a monster of a car then it wouldn't surprise me if one of the other manufacturers complain about Honda being allowed to develop their engine when they originally weren't allowed to.
18. What will be the most entertaining race of the year?
Spa is the safest bet.
19. Who will win the constructors' championship?
Hard not to say Mercedes.
20. Who will win the drivers' championship?
Could go either way again. I think Hamilton might edge it again but I really wouldn't be surprised if Rosberg won this year. He's got the experience of a championship battle now so he'll only be stronger this year.

The answer that everyone is giving for number 5 is very conservative considering all the teams up the sharp end of the grid in Barcelona testing were lapping about 3 seconds quicker than at Catalunya last season, at an engine power that won't even be at full whack yet.

Sky F1 have also just made a "Which driver are you game?"

http://f1.skysportsgames.com

On the WTF1 one I got Ricciardo, and on the Sky one I got Alonso.

Not a bad combo, but I really am the world's worst Vettel fan. 
I actually got Vettel on this one.


It's also funny that when you pick the most obviously mainstream commercial directed answers "save it for the podium", "social media", "Power Rangers" and "#yolo", you'll get Hamilton.


Also an interesting thing to do, is to choose the answers that are the complete opposite of what you'd choose. That meant that Romain Grosjean was my opposite driver.

wild rumours in spain that Alonso's career might be over :-(

don't know if its been mentioned here before but apparently he told the track side doctors he didn't know why he was in the car or where he was and was then sedated, he woke up in hospital saying he was a go kart driver and he wanted to be f1 champion as he thought he was only 13.

He's looking to get money from Sauber. They're obviously not going to let him race, being this close to the start of the season, so he's hoping they'll get desperate and pay him off.

The funny part is that everybody could've seen it coming, Sauber has a history of promising seats to drivers and then just act like it never happened, with Sirotkin as a recent example. It could now backfire though.

I don't rate the guy but if Sauber promised him a drive and took his money based on that promise then they should be honouring that. He has every right to take them to court over it. The reasons Sauber have given why he can't are poor at best anyway. By the same logic, neither of the Manor drivers should be allowed to race either. Magnussen to some extent too. It's not like Van der Garde has never driven an F1 car before and doesn't have a super license.
They've either got to pay him back everything he paid into the team to get the seat this year or let him drive.

It's not quite as bad as Lewis' dogs having their own Instagram account. But it's still pretty cringy.

Unlike Lewis' dogs though, the Mclaren engines will be dead by Sunday. And everyone knows you can't tweet when you're dead.

He already has but just wants money.
Kaltenborn is supposed to be a lawyer don't want her on my case!

I like the idea of banning helmet changes, but I think they've done it for the wrong reasons, never mind! The big teams need to learn to stop being greedy sods, because when the sport is left with just them and viewing figures fall even further, they'll begin wondering why on earth they're losing so much money.
I agree and today's race wasn't the most exciting either I think the last few years were pretty good race wise but today's was a bit boring in comparison to what I'd have expected. I'm not writing it off yet as it's only race 1 and I'd like to at least give it until we reach Europe but usually we see more action than that in the first race of a new season so it is troubling.
