Going by the pre-season tests I think Nico Rosberg has a good chance to be WDC, and Mercedes GP WCC.

Honourable mention for best-looking car on the grid: Williams F36. Dat Martini livery...

Almost put money on Massa for multiple podiums this year..  Even though I don't rate him!

Just imagine Massa becoming WDC. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near Alonso in that case - low-flying F1 tyres thrown at the technical department are potentially dangerous.

I certainly think it will be a merc driver and given I have been a Hamilton fan since he joined I voted him but I think Nico has pretty much an equal chance. 

I would love to see Massa return to form! the battle he had with Hamilton in 2008 was amazing and I think living in Alonso's shadow has not helped is recovery since the accident in Hungary and seeing Williams return to the front would be great!

I think it could be a Mercedes driver. I voted Hamilton because i'm british and i rate him and Alonso as the best "drivers" on the grid.

This year though he'll have the car (hopefully) to win the Championship.

However, i wouldn't write Rosberg off, he's proven he has the pace to match Hamilton. It'll also be good to see him consistently fighting for wins/podiums as he deserves it.

for me as a long time massa fan, it would be a dream coming true. not only that alonso is prevented forever to become ferrari wdc, still massa was much closer to win wdc for ferrari in 2008 than alonso ever was.

hamilton thinks massa can do wonders for williams

 

"You have Williams, who look like they could be a competitive team, and you have Force India who could be much further ahead. Maybe Felipe Massa will take the Williams to the front!" Hamilton is quoted by F1's official website.

having said that, i still have my doubts. going fast in testing might mean nothing in race conditions. we will see.

Today I realised it's twenty years since Ayrton Senna's death this year. Has it really been that long? Damn.

Bottas will get podiums this year. And rightly so.
