As in past years, here's the chance to predict who the WDC and WCC
winners will be before wheels turn in anger...

...but we have a problem. So far we have 17 predictions but only 5
variations:

Hamilton/Mercedes: 9 people
Vettel/Ferrari : 4 people
Vettel/Mercedes : 2 people
Verstappen/RBR : 2 people
Alonso/McLaren : 1 lunatic ;-)

So...I am going to propose that people predict the 1-2-3 for both
drivers and constructors. In both cases, the points will be:

2 points for correct driver/constructor in the right place
1 point for correct driver/constructor in the wrong position
1 bonus point for getting all three (any position)
2 bonus points for getting all three in the right position

That way, there is a good chance that one person will actually "win".

Any interest?

I think this is a more interesting challenge, but I also don't see too many variations.

Fuck yeah!

Drivers:
Ham
Vet
Ver

Constructors:
Mercedes
Red Bull
Ferrari

Also looking for prediction threads for:
First immediate-retirement-causing on-track collision
First/most blown engines
Number of weekends where Coulthard wears white jeans
Number of weekends where Jordan wears a strobe-inducing stripy shirt
Most absurdly wrong apportioning of blame for an incident by a rasf1-er.

I might as well persist with my lunatic suggestion. At least on that basis
I'm likely to be the only successful participant, when in reality no matter
what I pick I'll just be one of many unsuccessful participants!

WDC
1 - Alonso
2 - Verstappen
3 - Hamilton

WCC
1 - McLaren
2 - RBR
3 - Mercedes

I'm imagining McLaren have been sandbagging all along, the Renault turns
out to have reliability advantages over a surprisingly fragile Mercedes
power unit, Ferrari self destruct as usual, and Ricciardo comes of worse
from a handful of in-race clashes with his teammate.

Meanwhile, Alonso podiums at most races, with a small handful of wins and
Vandoorne finishing consistently 4th / 3rd to support the McLaren points
tally, with Hamilton showing the usual flashes of brilliance when the car
doesn't give up on him with 3 dominating wins in the season, but far too
many DNFs.

Let the lunacy commence!

I hope this is separate from the driver / constructor pool already started!

P1. Sebastian Vettel
P2. Lewis Hamilton
P3. Daniel Ricciardo
