Egg Formula 1 Time Capsule 2020

It's time to stick out necks out and make predictions for 2020, as outlandish as you like. Who will end up with egg on their face? I always think this thread is a little more fun if the predictions are not too safe, but a bit wild. They don't need to be on the level of Williams to win the championship, but that's up to you.

We will lock the thread on the eve of the season and re-open it after Abu Dhabi.

Please try to make your predictions objective and easy to verify, so 'Vettel will complain a lot on the radio' doesn't work, but 'Grosjean will have at least 5 crashes on the first lap' does.

Mine:

1. Ferrari will win no more than 5 races.

2. Ricciardo will score a podium and finish ahead of Ocon on points.

3. Williams will score in at least 3 races.

4. Bottas will win the championship.

5. Verstappen will get at least 5 driving-related penalties.

6. Grosjean will have at least 4 race-ending crashes.

7. At least one driver who does not race in Melbourne will race during the season.

8. Alonso will sign a contract to race.

9. One of the AlphaTauri drivers will be replaced, although not necessarily for this season.

10. Ferrari and Red Bull will both run DAS systems at some point during the season.

1. Mercedes will win at least 2/3rds of their races in the first half of the season.

2. Ferrari will comment that they are prioritising the 2021 car before the summer break.

3. Williams will comment that they are prioritising the 2021 car before the end of May.

4. Someone will drive in to the back of Verstappen. Contact behind the rear axle counts.

5. Vettel will drive into the back of someone. Contact behind the rear axle counts.

6. The champion will have the highest points score ever.

7. The champion will be Hamilton and clinched before the last race.

8. Hamilton won’t be the driver that starts on pole the most. (He’ll come alive in the races).

9. The closest finish of the year will be at Monaco.

10. Verstappen will win at Zandvoort in a Mansell-esque powered by the fans way. Some sort of quote (and the win) to prove this most subjective one.

11. Ginger spice will wave the chequered flag at the British GP.

More than a few above feel very likely and hate to double on a few.

1. Mercedes will run out to a large lead on the field early in the season.

2. Hamilton v Bottas talk will run past the break but Lewis will end it within a couple races.

3. Red Bull will add a DAS type system and Ferrari will say it's not worth the expensive vs lap time gain.

4. Ferrari will mention the new 2021 car development before any of the big 3.

5. Racing Point will challenge for 3rd in points.

6. Every team will score in multiple races.

7. There will be multiple rumors about Haas selling out or folding the race team as they fade late again.

8. Sadly at least 4 races will be cancelled.

9. Lewis and Mercedes clinch well before the final race so we get a couple races to talk about when he's leaving.

10. Williams will remind us all season about the FW43 is really a FW42 Evo and they're working on the FW44 already. But it will finish better than qualifying on average with Russell.

F J Nedos should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1. Vettel will announce his retirement, or that he is moving to another team.

2. The relationship between the Mercedes duo will worsen.

3. The pink team (whatever they want to bloody call themselves these days) will clash and crash with McLaren.

4. There will be 4 driver changes during the season.

5. The only person, and he won't do it, to possibly catch Hamilton for the championship is le clerc.

6. Bottas will start well and fade.

7. There will be a first time race winner at Monaco.

8. Renault will remain stagnant. Come silly season, rumours of Ricciardo moving to Ferrari will ramp up (again).

9. No-one will miss Hulkenberg.

10. Verstappen will win at least 2 races. Albon won't win any and the spotlight will be on him.

5. Grosjean will launch off the banking at Zandvoort and end up on the beach.

6. Alonso says he will be on the grid in 2022..

7. Bottas signs for Ferrari for 2021.

8. Hamilton complains when his steering wheel comes off on lap 7 of the Monaco GP and inspute of winning all preceding races from the DAS system declares it a bad idea.

9. Liberty announce plans for a GP in Marrakech.

10. Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz announce their engagement.

Some good ones here...mine:

- Vettel will get red misted and incur penalties at least 4 times
- Ferrari, Haas, and Mercedes will collide with team mates a total of 5 times between all three teams
- DAS will be mentioned at every race. Whether it's about the advantage, the ingenuity, other drivers complimenting it, or how it's illegal next season
- Hamilton will complain about tires in 24 of 20 races.
- Ferrari hears these complaints, makes wrong strategy call at 24 of 20 races.
- China will not return this year
- At least two other races will be cancelled or postponed
- There will be some left field Rosberg topic upon Hamilton winning the 7th WDC as Rosberg seeks for relevancy post F1
- McLaren beats their engine supplier in the constructors standings
- HAAS releases a driver in favor of a previous F1 driver. It changes nothing.
- Every single team has rumors about leaving F1.
- 2 Midfield teams get dramatically worse after summer
- Everybody was sandbagging at winter testing. It changes nothing about the order
- Leclerc gets shafted by team orders at least 3 times.
- There will be 2 podium bungles.
- 1 Driver will have to leave the podium after stepping on to it.
- Hamilton will love the fans at every race, as those particular fans are the best in the world.
