I predict Maldernandos will fall out with Lotus, destroy a few cars and will be rubbish as always.

I predict Lulu will say man a lot and have a bigger hat and earrings.

I predict Chilton will be rubbish as always.

I predict Bernie will go to jail (but get of on a technicality at the last moment)

I predict Suzie Perry will be annoying and clueless as ever.

I predict EJ will embarrass himself on the podium.

I predict Seb may have a sense of humor failure if he's amassed 20 points by mid season.

I predict Ron will create 200 new user accounts this year.

whereas I don't hold much sore by kate walkers articles, at least she is saying what I, and others have been saying. it is silly for anyone to write off any team before the season starts. it is not the first time that rbr have been hit with problems at the start of the season, and they have managed to turn things around. and they are not the only ones that have done that either. the pace of development is so fast that, that it could see a complete turn around after a few races in
however, I would dispute her comment that rbr are the only ones doing live streaming back to the factory. a number of teams do this too, to various degrees,

1) Mercedes - WDC in the most reliable car, the other one gets to eat ice cream after it fell on the ground
2) Ferrari - because they have veto power
3) RBR - double-points at the last 1, 3, 5 or 7 races
4) The hulkster
5) Remaining Mercedes power
6) K. K. and the Cat crew
7) Anyone else not racing next season

How's that for timing.

These are not actual predictions. The Mercedes teammate that does not win the driver's championship will not have to eat ice cream off the ground, it will just feel that way. Ask Webber.

... and there is no doubt that RBR will bounce back. The question is when - as 107SS2009 has correctly pointed out - and will they have enough time to claw back into this years WDC.

Kind of a moot point if RBR do well enough in the first three races.

15 days and we'll see.

the silver lining for RBR is now they know exactly where they are. They have a (major) challenge to overcome which is something everyone can get behind and focus on as a team.

If they went into the season and were just mediocre that would be a difficult thing to pinpoint. None of that going on here.
