Who are you rooting for this year?

Of course, we are all fans of motorsport and Formula 1 may be a part of that. Usually, I mostly just like to see good racing, but from time to time, I find I cheer on one team or driver a little bit in particular. It may be an underdog or a big-name team or driver.

Is there anyone in particular you'll be particularly happy for if they do well this year? The thread came to mind because I was thinking about Williams and how much there is to support. For one, they have got two absolute racers in there - one the Formula 2 champion and another a down-to-earth guy who is a classic Williams driver in the traditional mould - no airs or graces, but steely determination.

For another, they have somehow survived where others haven't and even though they've been in the doldrums, they remain Williams and have not allowed themselves to be bought out. They finished stone last last year and yet there is hope there that they still understand this motor racing thing enough to get more out of their season.

Alfa Romeo / Sauber to break into the top end of midfield is my biggest wish. Well, for them to score a podium would be utopia. Especially if it is Kimi.
I would like Williams to not get the wooden spoon, and I ache for Renault to beat Red Bull and be #3.

team would be Racing Point. i hope they can continue on where FI left off and with a bit more money maybe some podiums are on the table.

driver is Kimi at Sauber. i think he is the best personality on the grid and as i get older i find myself rooting for the old guys more.

RK comeback is also a special note and i hope Williams have provided a car for him do so with...although my launch window optimism for Williams tends to leave me even more disappointed by mid season.

Nice idea for a thread. For me I have multiple things I would "like" to see happen. In no particular order...

* Not particularly a Ferrari fan, but I would sort of like to see Ferrari win the WCC. Mostly as I would like to see someone other than Mercedes and Ferrari is likely the best contender
* I am hoping Kubica does well. Worst case he proves to be terrible and tarnishes his name.
* I would like to see Leclerc really challenge Vettel.
* I would like to see Vettel rise to the challenge of Leclerc. Problem is.. Vettel seems to not handle pressure well? Seems to be mistake prone in that scenario.
* I would LOVE to see Honda win a race with RBR. I can only dream of them taking the fight to Mercedes and Ferrari. If I could pick one thing on this list to happen... this would be it!
* I always wish Williams well as they were the first team I fell in love with.
* I am hoping Kimi is proven to be immortal, and as such he races in F1 forever

Things I feel guilty about wishing for...

* I sort of don't want Kvyat to do well. Mostly because bringing him back makes little sense to me and I would like to be right about that.
* Drama with regards to Rich Energy. I have a bucket of popcorn all ready for that.

Ok, so here we go - things I want to see this season:
  • Someone other than Mercedes to win the Constructors Championship.
  • Someone other than Lewis to win the Drivers Championship.
  • Kimi to carry on being Kimi.
  • A team other than Mercedes, Ferrari or Red Bull to win a race.

As for teams I root for - used to be Jordan back in the day, now I'm less bothered (I can think of reasons to not like several teams though). Driver is easy - Kimi! I hope Kubica does well too after everything he's been through.

I hope Ricciardo does well with Renault as he is my favourite driver due to his sunny personality. I hope RBR-Honda has enough to challenge Ferrari and Merc. I hope Leclerc shows his talent in that Ferrari. I really hope Kimi can do something with Alfa. And I hope Bobby can help Williams get out of their hole

I'm also pulling for Kimi, D. R. and Kubica. Would love to see a podium for Haas and/or Sauber this year. Something other than a red or silver car contending for either championship is almost too much to hope for.

Would dearly love Ricardo to have an epic year wins and top 5 finish.
Kimi too constantly outshine Vettel and his old team,
Hamilton to continue his winning ways
George to out class Kubica at Williams

I think that the interesting thing this year is that every one of the teams has the ingredients to finish on the podium. Toro Rosso and Alfa Romeo now have investment and closer tie to bigger teams and Hass were not a million miles off last year. Racing Point will always be in the midfield but you always feel that they could spring a surprise.

Even Williams now have a bit more purpose about them and two exciting drivers!!

There are no "backmarkers" any more so although it is not always close at the front the battle for 19th/20th could be mega!!!

Oooo, i could do that too. Do you know when they sell out? I kind of need to wait before I commit.

Sorry that is all OT.

The reason I mention the Alonso thing is that I donít really know what I care for this year in F1. Leclerc being good would be nice. And Kubica, although I far from expect that. Williams and McLaren making a comeback would be nice.
