I don't know who will win but I sure know who will yell the loudest. On a weekly basis there will be a CALL to the team. So much yelling that it will make you think he is putting a dump truck on the podium.

Well, if people had to put some money on their choices, they would likely choose differently. A lot of voting with hearts and not heads, here. I a a Kimi fan, but I don't for a minute think Lotus can mount a season long challenge at this point.
No, Seb is the favorite because the the car is great and Newey will continue to find ways to evolve the performance.
Alonso is in with a shout because, well, he is Alonso.
And Button has a chance because McLaren looked mighty towards season's end.
Lewis? Long shot at very best for next year.
Now, 2014 will be a different story for everyone.

A discussion I'd like to see, above speculative polls like this, is how people feel about going into 2013 and, possibly, the last F1 season with normally aspirated V8 engines.

What's on the horizon is unclear to me, not sure how I feel about it! I look at these old clips, and listen to the sound of those V12s and V10s and get all teary eyed.

In spite of the arguments about who may be the best driver, we are in a great era with a number of great drivers who all have amazing qualities. We should enjoy!

If such a discussion has already taken place, then apologies.

Jim, Can't say I'm looking forward to the limited V6T's, F1 has been held back/slowed down far too much in recent years. Yes the FiA have to rein teams in to a certain extent or else we would have 300mph cars, but in the mid '80s cars could lap fast tracks in qualifying spec at close to 260kmph average speed. Now, almost 30 years later they are more than 10kmph slower.
F1 must remain the pinnacle of motor sport and that means it must be the fastest. The tracks are safer the cars are much safer so I think the average speeds could safely be higher now than in the 80's. The answer for me would be around 900bhp and a reintroduction of limited ground effects and get rid of some of the spoilers.
A decent sounding engine would be a bonus. As for "green credentials" I really couldn't give a toss about it.
