The pre-season tests have concluded, and the first practice is upon us, less than 24 hours away at the time of writing. This post will be my predictions of the 2015 F1 season, based on testing times, stuff I have read, and gut feeling. Also, at the end of the article, I give my championship predictions.
I think that this season will prove to be more exciting than last year’s, in the sense that I believe there will be more teams fighting for victories than last year. There were only two teams last season that won races, being Mercedes and Red Bull. However, based on testing times (which of course do not say a lot), I think that Williams, Red Bull and Ferrari have managed to make the gap to Mercedes smaller, which should provide for some exciting races.
The third test has concluded, so now the time has come to do some more speculation on what we might expect the coming season. I am expecting a very exciting season and am very much looking forward to it.
This is just a small post with some team information and statistics. I am going to try to put in a post with my predictions for the season, before the first race.
By merely looking at the time sheets, it seems that this season will be a much closer battle between the teams than last year. Especially Ferrari seem very fast, and appear to have made a good step forward.
The biggest shock of testing was the crash of Fernando Alonso, of which we do not know what caused it. All reports say it was a strange crash, but it seems that Alonso “only” suffered a concussion.
Max Verstappen did a really good job, and I think that he is showing the potential to really impress this year.
First of all, what have we learned so far? Pretty much nothing, as this is testing and you cannot base conclusion on that. What we can do, however, is speculate, which is exactly what we will do 🙂
It has been a bit over two months since the last race of 2014, which took place on the 23rd of November, in Abu Dhabi. However, this Sunday, February 1st, the testing for the 2015 season will begin at Jerez.
First of all, let me just straight up say that I am by no means an expert on F1, and that I will mostly just post about the things I read and see around the internet, and of course what happens during testing and the races.
Now, the biggest question up until the first race in Melbourne, March 15th, will be if the (huge) gap to Mercedes will have been made smaller by the other teams. Mercedes’ success last season was largely attributed to the engine, which was rumoured to have about 100bhp more than the other engines in the field. However, the chassis they made was very good as well, proven by how fast they were on the slower-speed-tracks. like Monaco, and Hungary. Red Bull’s chassis was very good as well, as it has been over the past few years, but they were pretty much hurt by the Renault-engine.
Related to that question is also: how will the renewed partnership between McLaren and Honda perform? How will the engine be? Will they be able to compete for race wins?
Another big question will be how Max Verstappen will perform. He is, after all, the youngest driver ever to start a F1 season, and he is being hyped quite a lot. There has been a bit of criticism as well, wondering whether or not he is not too young to be able to race with “the big boys”.
Hopefully, I will answer these questions over the course of the season, or at least, give my opinions on them 🙂
There is a lot to look out for this season, and I am excited!
