Lewis Hamilton and McLaren FTW!!! Also I don't mind if BMW will win the constructors cup. :)

Look at F1.08...

My hopes is on Lewis and Mclaren. Second comes Kimi and Alonso. Something tells me, don't under estimate Force India.

I fancy Ferrari this year, and Raikkonen is more consistent out of the two Ferrari drivers and he has the experience required to challenge/win the title.

Kimi and Ferrari. This first race should be a good indication of what's to come.

I support Force India because it has an Indian owner! Actually though I really support BMW Sauber... Brilliant team!

As for a individual well... Massa for the title this time!

I also signed up for the league. Team Name: SauberIndia

I've joined the mini league.

Hope Hamilton does it this year. Also, anyone going to Silverstone? I am, Stowe is where I am sitting.

Guessing from the test results I think we will see the following pecking order within the teams (at the start of the season at least):

Ferrari

McLaren

BMW

Renault

Williams

Toyota

RedBull

Toro Rosso

Honda

Force India

Super Aguri

My pick for WDC? R?ikk?nen. He is fully integrated within the Ferrari team (unlike in the first half of the 2007 season when he was clearly struggling) and more consistent than Massa.

McLaren will be close to Ferrari, but not close enough.

I'd love to see a 4-way fight between Ferrari, McLaren, BMW, and Renault.

Specifically for the Grand Prix?

I would love to see Hamilton win it this year after coming close last year.

Yeah, I can't wait either. I just hope that the drama happens on-track not in some court room.

I'd love for Lewis to win this season but those Ferrari's are in the sweet spot right now.

Well, with a reliable car and making fewer mistakes than the few he did make last season he's got a damn good chance of taking it.

I'm supporting pretty much everybody but Alonso. :laugh: I want Lewis to win overall though. :p

I think Ferrari and McLaren are about equal. Last year tracks clearly suited one or the other team, but not both. Both teams think they've improved where they did poorly last year, so they should be equal now.

I think BMW have slipped into the midfield. Williams (and Red Bull slightly) have made good progress over the winter, while BMW have been struggling badly with stability.

This first race should be a good indication of what's to come.

Melbourne isn't a great example as it's a very unique track (look at 2007). I think after Bahrain we'll have a better idea as to who is where. The lack of driver aids will make it harder still to judge.
