Last season I made quite a few F1 predictions on Twitter, including the obvious Vettel/Red Bull championship, I also predicted podiums for both Grosjean and Pérez and a first win for Rosberg, with a few stats to back up the claims. Now it’s time for some predictions on the 2013 season.
My first prediction is that Nico Hülkenberg will win a race in 2013, making him the 8th German driver to win an F1 race and the 6th with at least one win, pole and fastest lap. The second prediction is for Force India to finish below Williams and MAYBE Toro Rosso in the Constructors’ Championship, so either 8th or 9th for them.
The third prediction involves both of the GP3 Champions on the 2013 grid, Esteban Gutiérrez and Valtteri Bottas, a podium for Gutiérrez and possibly one for Bottas too. Next prediction, either a win or a pole for Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes, but only the one.
As for the championship predictions, in the Constructors’ I can’t see anyone but Red Bull winning, however in the Drivers’ Championship I think Alonso might just do it, but I’ll probably be wrong and we’ll see Vettel win a fourth, almost definitely one of those two anyway.
One last prediction, and the one I’m not too sure about, no poles for McLaren. Neither Jenson Button nor Sergio Pérez are great over a single lap so I can’t see it happening unless the McLaren is incredibly dominant.
That’s it for this year’s predictions, hopefully at least a few will be right. If you’re taking part in the Badger Fantasy GP this year and think you can predict better, why not join my friends league? The name is Stat League and the passcode FfAh0P.
