I continue to be impressed by the Mercedes commitment to excellence/domination, as an engineer I can't fail to.
However, in my heart I too would like to see good old Team Willy get some much better results, they are a team of racers.
McLaren (now that Ron has gone) have also spent too long in the doldrums abd I'd love to see them get closer to the pointy end this year.
Racing Point are another who as Force India always appeared to be punching well above their weight, now that they have a more solid financial backing it would be good to see them have the success they all deserve. It'll also be interesting to see just how good (or not so) a driver young Lance is now he has better machinery under him.

I'd like to see the all rookies give a good impression of themselves.

I hope that LeClerc make the most of this opportunity also.

No specific expectations or hopes for that matter. Some good racing and good performances by the teams and the drivers mentioned already. It would be good to see a couple of teams pushing through from the midfield, but I'm not holding my breath.

Alfa Romeo for me!

Hoping Sainz can recover a rep that took a bashing last year.

Also hoping Russell, Albon go well.

I'll be rooting for Alfa Romeo (to be a regular threat to the top of the "B squad"), Leclerc (to make the lives interesting for Vettel and Hamilton), Ricciardo (to surprise in the Renault) and Red Bull (to manage what McLaren couldn't with Honda) in no particular order.

I forgot to add Leclerc to my list. Hoping he's see Vettel off.

I'm not rooting for anybody or any team in prticular, or wishing anyone or any team bad things.

For the best of the championship, I hope someone other than Lewis wins the driver championship and someone else than Mercedes wins the constructor championship.
Realistically, Ferrari probably has the best chance to do so; and Vettel is the most likely candidate for the title then. Bottas as a champion would be as OK to me as anybody else (though unlikely).
While I hope someone other than Mercedes wins the constructors championship, I don't want them to be blown away either. Just beaten by somone who is marginally better this year.

I wish Renault gets the engine boost it was looking for. This would probably bring Renault (the team) a bit closer to Ferrari-Mercedes-Red Bull. A four-way fight is always nicer than a three-way fight. At the same time, that could also benefit McLaren.
I hope Sainz does well, I like the guy since I met him at Spa some years ago (in Renault World Series)

Next, I hope Leclerc does alright against Vettel. Close to him when Vettel has the upper hand, and beat him from time to time. I hope Ferrari has enough patience when/if things don't go smoothly at times, and does not put unnecessary pressure on him.

Likewise, although I've been known to gloat from time to time when things don't go quite according to plan for one or two teams!

I'm a bit torn this year - but I'll come back to that.

I want McLaren to have a better year than they've had recently; I really want Williams to get out of their doldrums (but I don't think they will); I want Renault to improve just a little and bunch up the midfield some more.

I'm torn, because part of me really wants to have Merc hammer everyone again this year with a car/driver/team combo that is as close to perfection as we've ever seen, but I fear that would be a bad thing at the same time.

I hope it doesn't rain at Silverstone. I also hope it isn't about 300 Celsius like it was in 2018!
