The season officially starts tomorrow with free practice in Australia, so let’s do some summary of what we know and what I expect.
We know what the cars are going to look like – here can see each teams’ 2007 F1 livery, including the newly launched Super Aguri SA07
We can expect Ferrari, McLaren to lead pack, Renault and BMW chasing them. Williams should be better than last year, Honda will be better than they look now. Toyota will struggle. Super Aguri will move up to the middle of the pack. Red Bull and Toro Rosso will not be anything special and will continue to draw more attention off the track. Hopefully they will not force DC to be a Superman again. I would expect the constructors championship to go to Ferrari, second to McLaren. Third place will be decided between Renault, BMW and Honda. The rest will form the midfield and Spyker will be the backmarkers.
Drivers championship will be close call between Alonso, Massa and Raikkonen. Alonso may benefit from Massa and Raikkonen stealing points from each other until the clear no.1 in Ferrari is determined.
The first team to replace the driver this season will be Toyota or Toro Rosso unless some other drivers get sidelined by injury.
Will check back on October 21 after the last race to see how right or wrong I am
