Who will be 2018 champion?

Always do this at the start of the season, midway and then before the title decider, so let's do this...
Racing is living and everything that happens in between is just waiting.

Hamilton.

The only other likely one to win in my mind is Vettel, and that's presuming Ferrari and Mercedes are equal this year.

Sadly I think Mercedes will still have the edge and with it will go another title to Hamilton.
Not what I want but there is no reason to think otherwise at this stage. They will still have a big oil burn qualy advantage thanks to the FIA loophole not regulating oil burn to race levels in qualy. Plus they have now pretty much admitted their engines are North of 1000bhp. Ferrari are near or on 1000, but not as much as Merc. And to expect the Merc customers to get the same spec, regardless of what the FIA say, is a pipedream.

Chris sums up my thoughts quiet nicely, I think at this stage, the only person capable of stopping Lewis winning another title, is Lewis.

Räikkönen has only a chance for the title when the season 2007 will be repeated. Scoring points with consistency. Hamilton and Bottas taking points away from each other. Some DNF's, clashes, Vettel losing his mind... RBR not having enough pace.

Well... Britain voted for Brexit and America voted for Trump, so yes I can actually seeing something as bizarre and unlikley as this actually happening.

Agreed that it would be bizarre and unlikely, but yes.

What's bizarre about having good values??? :omg:

Anywho...I don't know who will win except it'll be the driver with the most points, eh? ;)

Daniel Ricciardo. An all-head decision. Ok, all-heart, but if Red Bull are anywhere on pace, I'm hoping for a Red Bull title win. It may or may not be Danny-Ric, but he has shown a great combination of speed and consistency in his career thus far. Maxy will no doubt be pushing for all-out victories, but the question begs whether he can reign it in just that little bit.

I didn't think my question was all that confusing. :roll:
If you have to ask, I don't think the answer will help but I'll try.

I meant that I questioned your examples of voting for Brexit and Trump being "as bizarre and unlikely as this". Get it? :huh:

Nope, not really. What does Brexit and Trump have to do with 'good values'?
