Egg 2019 Predictions Time Capsule

Make 5 bold or at least precise (and quantifiable) predictions (or more if you like) about the season to come. They don't need to necessarily be what you think is most likely, but you can stick your neck out a bit or a lot. At the end of the season, we will open the thread and laugh at just wrong we were.



I will go with:

Williams will score at least 5 points.
Räikkönen will score at least double Giovinazzi's points tally.
Hamilton will win his sixth championship and at the final race.
Kvyat will be replaced again during the season.
Leclerc will finish runner-up in the championship with at least 4 wins.

I probably should wait until much closer to the first race to do predictions, but I might forget otherwise. Here is mine! Some of these are longshots, but what is the fun of playing the odds on everything.

1. Claire Williams will move aside as deputy team principle before the end of the season but will remain on the Williams Grand Prix Holdings board. No clue who might replace her.
2. Russell will outperform Kubica over the totality of the season.
3. Red Bull will win six races.
4. Hamilton will win WDC.
5. Shocking a long line of naysayers, Kvyat will have a good season, outperform Albon and redeem himself.

Bonus (doesn't count in my five)

A. Kubica will retire from F1 at end of the season
B. There will be public drama between Haas and Rich Energy over sponsorship payments.
C. Mercedes will have four retirements due to reliability issues.

How are we going to quantify these ones? Shall we say outperforming is beating on points?

Sorry, yes, points scored was my intent. For both the Williams and TR driver battles.

So

2. Vettel will leave Ferrari at the end of the season
3. Kubica won't make it to the end of the season
4. Morris will be hammered both on points and finishing positions by Sainz
5. Verstappen will fight someone and end up being benched for at least one weekend

I think #6 may a requirement for #3. I almost picked something similar. I was thinking very tight battle between Hamilton and Vettel and Leclerc very much out performing Bottas.

Apologies if thread is for predictions only and not discussion.

Ok, let's roll the dice...

1. Vettel to win the WDC.
2. Williams to end the season on zero points.
3. A new Grand Prix winning driver.
4. Hulk to get a podium, but still lose to Ricciardo in the points standings.
5. Haas to get a podium.

Ferrari will win Constructors Championship.
Leclerc will score more points than Bottas.
A Renault powered car will get a podium.
Kimi will get a podium in the Alfa Romeo.
Hulkenberg will be leading Ricciardo by the mid-season break.

(Bonus 1) Ricciardo will lead Hulkenberg by the end of the season.
(Bonus 2) Kubica will retire before the end of the season.

Not sure Ferrari will win either title. And Leclerc will be good, but I think Bottas will have a better season this year. Renault power will probably be no better than it has been. Kimi though, he can do wonders in that Alfa.
