1. Ferrari will be challengers for the championship to the end of the season.
2. The lack of overtaking will cause a lot problems and lead to much talk about changes.
3. Only 3 teams will win GP's this year Mercedes, Ferrari & Red Bull .
4. There will be political problems for F1's new owners likely to come from those connected with F1's past.
5. Renault will finish in the top 5.
6. Only 2 teams outside of Mercedes, Ferrari & Red Bull will finish on the podium.
7. Ocon will prove to be the best of the new drivers. ( I know he had a few races last year)

You can't play the favorites if you want to stand out, so some are against the current thinking. And sorry for #10 which is a downer prediction...

1. Hamilton will complain about Bottas.
2. Bottas will force an error on Hamilton which will see Hamilton retire from a race.
3. Neither McLaren will see the finish line in Australia if they even manage to qualify.
4. McLaren will only use Honda power during the course of the 2017 season.
5. Honda will not leave F1 during or immediately after the 2017 season.
6. Honda will show enough promise to pickup an extra team for 2018.
7. McLaren will score at least one point.
8. Alonso will leave McLaren at the end of 2017.
9. Kimi will win at least one race.
10. A race will be red flagged due to a significant crash.

Bonus (doesn't count)!

11. Mercedes will remain with Mercedes power throughout the entire 2017 season!

I think that Hamilton will win the title and then take on Hollywood.

8. Verstappen dominates DOTR votes
9. Stoffel will occassionally beat Alonso come 2nd half
10. Hulk also retires after tiring of fighting with Sauber and Haas at the rear. Goes to WEC instead.

Bonus 11. Silly season will be dominated by speculation of losing Hulk, Massa, Alonso and Kimi to retirements - 4 of the big 2000s (pre-Merc domination) names. But Kimi and Alonso end up staying.
1. nope but could very easily have happened if it was Lewis suffering a couple of retirements instead of Seb
2. nope, but might have happened if renault didn't come to the rescue for '19
3. yep
4. couldn't be further from the truth, Palmer sucked
5. yep
6. yep
7. yep
8. I think so?
9. Didn't occasionally beat Alonso (maybe just once), but he did massively improve in 2nd half
10. nope... Renault certainly improved on 2016 didn't they
11. well, this was a pretty far fetched prediction haha, we only lost Massa

Quite fun looking back over the predictions

3] Incorrect. Close, only 4 points difference.
4] Correct. Most expected him to retire.
5] Correct. With two rounds left.
6] Incorrect. Lap records were broken during FP/Quali but surprisingly not during the race.
7] Incorrect. Ocon just behind Perez (13 points).
8] Incorrect. DNF'd 4 times!
9] Incorrect. Fortunately.
10] Incorrect. Unfortunately.

4/10. Fail.

Um...

Well, number 1 was right. Not sure about number 2 although he binned it in a couple of FP2 and FP3 sessions. 3 hasn't happened, 4 sort of happened (Indy, Toyota seat fit), 5 sort of (Bottas taking his first although not a rookie!), 6 noooope, 7... well, very nearly.

So mostly a pile of nope. Never ask me to select your lottery numbers
