The 2015 F1 World Championship Thread

Well the 2014 season is over and done with Lewis Hamilton taking his 2nd World Drivers Championship and Mercedes it's 1st World Constructors Championship.

So will the Mercedes be as dominant in 2015 as it was in 2014 or will it's rivals be able to close the gap, and how will the returning Honda engine fair.

But we are sill in the silly season, who will be driving for McLaren next year, but it looks like two rules will be changed for next year.

The unpopular double points look set to be dropped and standing restarts (another unpopular move) look set to be scrapped before it comes in.

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/116953

And it looks like for the first time since 1994 there will be no nummber 1 on a car as Lewis wants to retain the number 44 which he is allowed under the rules.

Re: The 2015 F1 World Championship Thread

Ok, my not very bold predictions for 2015:

-Alonso won't win a race but Button will (maybe 1, late in the year) and their equal treatment will cause Alonso to leave again at season's end, maybe to retire.
-Vettel won't win a race, and like Jacques Villeneuve, may never win again. Raikkonen will win at least one race but Ferrari's problems will continue.
-Massa may win more than one race if Williams can build on 2014. He may be Best of the Rest.
-Lewis and Nico will be the leaders for much of the year but I think the confidence of a second championship will buoy Lewis to a third title.
-Red Bull will continue to scrape by. I would bet even money that Dieter will bail in another year or two if they continue to underperform. Ricciardo may steal a win or two.
Overall, I don't think 15 will be the Merc whitewash that 14 was. However, barring some major change in engine development regs, Merc and Williams are top of the heap right now.
Honda will certainly have a second team in 16. Maybe Sauber if they're still around?

Pre-season testing has started. So far Mercedes were straight in with a great performance, Ferrari look very much improved, McLaren-Honda a bit improved -ish, but haven't gone for a flying lap yet, and Williams and Red Bull pretty quick as per last year.

Well the 1st test of the year has gotten under way at Jerez, with Mercedes looking strong, but Vettel topping the time sheets. But how much are each team masking their cars true performance?

Loks like Alonso will miss the season opener following medical advice following a crash in testing.

Re: The 2015 F1 World Championship Thread

I'm starting to buy the "fumes in the car" rumor for Alonso. It would take time for burned lungs to heal. Wish the team would come clean on what happened.

I'm sure all will be revelaed in time, as the question likely won't go away until it is answered.

Re: The 2015 F1 World Championship Thread

Well with only a couple of days left to go before the season starts with Free Practice, the question remains who will drive for Sauber with two different courts ruling that Geido Van Der Garde does have a contract for a race seat. Last I checked 3 into 2 doesn't go. But there is an appeal on Thursday.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/31828900

The question if the appeal court upholds the previous decisions does Sauber go ahead with Nasr and Ericsson, in violation of that order? Should one or more finish could other teams appeal the result due the team being in violation of a court ruling? Should anything happen i.e a driver injury involving the Saubers how would that play out as they drove in violation of a court ruling. It's a potential legal minefield.

The question is to a pull an all nighter, or set the alarm early for the Australian GP.

I'm going to stream it in the afternoon. I can't enjoy it when i'm tired. Plus I like to drink beer when I watch it.
