Your top 3 for the championship after 2 pre-season tests

Post by DJDisco » 13 Feb 2011, 17:50

So after two pre-season tests, I think it's time to guess for the first time who will win the championships this year. So this is what you need to do just do your top 3 for both of teams and drivers.

So i will start -

DRIVERS

1. FERNANDO ALONSO (FERRARI)
2. JENSON BUTTON (MCLAREN)
3. MICHAEL SCHUMACHER (MERCEDES)

TEAMS

1. MCLAREN
2. FERRARI
3. MERCEDES

So who do you think we will be the top 3 after 2 preseason tests??

Well make your guesses before Friday

Way too soon. Only after a few races will there be a more clear indication.

I agree that it's way too soon to start speculating for the championship, but my gut tells me:

1. Hamilton
2. Vettel
3. Alonso

1. Red Bull
2. McLaren
3. Ferrari

Absolutely impossible to say. Testing times say nothing. Especially the fastest times.

We can only make predictions after Bahrain qualifying.

For me its not so much predicting the cars, because from what I gather the RB7 is much faster than the opposition. But its the drivers. Alonso & Hamilton, I believe, are far superior drivers to Vettel & Webber. Alonso beat Webber in a far inferior car and Hamilton was very close despite several moments of bad luck. However, Vettel will only improve and he was also besotted by bad luck.

I don't believe Webber or Button will be in the top three and Mercedes don't appear to be capable of challenging for the title seeing as they are still the same team that produced awful cars from 1999 to 2008, bar a few.

If I were to predict now, I'd say it will be very very close bewteen Vettel, Alonso and Hamilton but I cannot predict the order.

As for WCC, I think McLaren. Very good team and with a better car they can win it easily. They were only about 40 points behind Red Bull last year after all.

This is pretty pointless, it's like asking who is going to win the English Premier League football championship after they played two pre-season friendlies.

I wouldn't write off Button just yet. With high tyre degradation, his smoothness could come in handy and I'm sure we haven't heard the end of him.

As for the rest, I refuse to make any predictions! Remember how we had that pre-season predictions last thread and pretty much everyone was dead wrong about everything. :p
