Hmm let's see. Let's go with the dead ringers for starters.
Honda will still suck. Nick Fry will still be leading the team. And some people had the nerve to claim BAR/Honda sucked because of JV. About time you faced the fact that it's the team who sucks.
Toyota will also still suck. Their "radical" new car will look and drive as crappy as all their previous cars. No one will care.
RBR will again blowup consistently. That's the only thing they can do on a regular basis. Webber will toss the steering wheel out of the car, and DC will put in some gritty midfield performances only to come 9th for all his troubles.
McLaren will put in a repeat of 2006. Hence the curse of the Star Trek Odd Numbered Movie Curse. McLaren will continue to experience the even numbered curse they have endured for many years. They had good years in 2003,2005 and 2007. Lewis will say something he shouldn't to the press, only to have Uncle Ron mop up the mess. Lewis will get his on JibJab web animation in honor of the greatest flip flopper of all, John Kerry.
Williams will have a great year with Nico scoring a podium. For reasons that are not clear, Sato will still be Japans premier F1 driver. The love/hate relationship with him will continue.
BMW will make some headway, but still be in the same position they are this year. Kubica will still drive erratically and yet somehow keep it on the road. Nick will emerge come the beginning of 2008, with the greatest beard F1 has ever seen.
Renault will appear in an even more ugly paint scheme than this year. The crystal ball is too murky when it comes to this team. Too many other factors at play.
Torro Rosso will beat RBR in reliability. Bourdais will get a little Scott Speed love from his team, but will show his class by the end of the season. Vettel will get a haircut.
Ferrari will cleanup both championships with Kimi being the champ. Massa will have a little sulk, but will toe the party line. Brawn will be hired by the team but like Schumi, will retain a position with no name and or function.
Force India will surprise a few with their car liverly but will experience reliability problems. The crystal ball is also a little murky on this team too. But should Luizzi score a drive there, he will put in some good performances.
Super Aguri will again beat Honda on the track. Sato will put in a couple of awesome overtaking moves right on the heals of spearing off one of the Toyota's from a previous race. The love affair with Sato will continue. How can you love something that is so bad you wonder? You won't care.
"Obviously I am pleased to have many fans. Who would not want? But to be honest, I have no idea why people like me."
"Do you really think I would be here if it was just about money?" Raikkonen hit back. "I do enough fun things in my spare time than to have to listen to this bullsh*t."
"There is always a lot of talk about the motivation but nobody really knows what I do or what I think except for myself, so I don't really care about what people say."
"There's always talk about my motivation, written by people who don't know me and couldn't have an idea on how strong my motivation is. If I didn't feel I had the motivation, I would stop. My feeling is that I probably drove some of my best races in my last season in Formula One and I was very happy with my performance. I've never had any issues with motivation."
