A thread for 2013 season discussion while we're waiting for it to begin.

I predict that 2013 will be an unpredictable year of racing. :wink:

Here are just a few of my other predictions:

World Drivers' Championship - Vettel, Alonso, Webber
World Constructors' Championship - Red Bull, Ferrari, Lotus
Most Race Wins - Vettel (Silverstone, Singapore, Yeongam, Buddh)
Other Race Winners - Alonso, Webber, Massa, Raikkonen, Grosjean, Perez, Hamilton, Gutierrez
Most Pole Positions - Vettel (Shanghai, Bahrain, Germany, Budapest, Singapore, Yeongam, Buddh)
Most Podiums - Alonso and Webber (12 each)
Grand Chelem - Vettel at Yeongam
Surprise 'Overachiever' of the Year - Sauber (Gutierrez and Hulkenberg grab a podium each as the team winds up 5th in the WCC)
Surprise 'Underachiever' of the Year - Kimi Raikkonen (wins in Sepang and Abu Dhabi but has a big drop in consistency from 2012, finishes 6th in the WDC)
Race of the Year - Monaco GP (Alonso, Vettel, and Gutierrez finish within a second of each other, as Gutierrez gets the surprise win in a rainy Monaco GP)

Other Surprises - Massa finishes 5th in WDC, Glock finishes last in WDC (still picking up four points along the way), Caterham finishes 8th in WCC (Force India and Toro Rosso will struggle with reliability), Vettel and Webber finish the year separated by less than twenty points

This thread is for the posting of silly season and 2013 calendar rumours as well as your predictions for the upcoming year of F1 action! :)

Well the silly season is almost set, the only real question is who will partner Di Resta and his massive ego at Force India
