if u can see in the future or have a crystal ball then tell me who will be champion, i would just like to know in the end the points standings.... dont need driver names... just the points would be enough

i mean its unpredictable who will be champion... i mean things can change so quickly in f1... 2009 proved it, jenson won 6/7 races at start and after that he collected 2-3 pts per race... u see the other teams catched the brawn and even overtook him..., its so unpredictable..., but i would like that it ends like 07, top 3 just 1pt --- would be awesome... but lets wait and see

A high proportion of the drivers who've won the opening race have won the title in the last 10-20 years.

An interesting point raised by Autosport:

Guess which one of the McLaren drivers was working his tyres too hard, ruining them and bringing them back to the pits with little grip left, whilst the other was perfectly managing his tyres, adapting his driving style to suit the degredation.

Yup, according to Bridgestone, Jenson Button is being too hard on his tyres and Lewis has them under control.

Interesting
