He must be special indeed. Just the fact that McLaren gave him one of their seats for his debut in F1 says it all. He has done pretty well at winter testing. He can be one of the stars in the near future.

I am really excited to see how he stacks up against Button, he looks decent driver to me, but so is Button who is not a world beater but class act

I'm not a fan of Ron Dennis, but when it comes to giving youth a chance this man is it. He takes chances with his own company in giving talented young drivers a chance to express themselves which has been fruitful in the past. I have a good feeling about the young Dane just hope Jenson can re-establish himself again as Ron looks in the mood to get Mclaren back on top of the pile and he has been making noises about bringing back past Mclaren drivers once the Mclaren car is where he wants it. With Whitmarsh out of the picture Jenson is the last reminisce of the Whitmarsh era which yielded no championships and many errors which were not eradicated and I feel Ron wants to move away from this epoch. I do wish Mclaren all the best as F1 is not the same without a competitive Mclaren.

I Think Magnussen will do well and show great speed
Button will use his experience, smoothness and generally stay out of trouble and pick up the points like he has made a career out of.

Magnusson will probably murder Button in qualifying as is usual with Button but probably have more incidents over the year that will end up with him scoring less points even though he will be the faster driver

As much as I would like to see Williams/Massa doing well, it depends on other factors. I wouldn't be surprised if RBR get a grip with their car in short order, Seb has proved he can drive very well though I would like to see him leave Red Bulls protective shell and someone else win the title this year a la Lewis, I still wouldn't bet against him.

Williams and Massa story is bit romantic, of course many would love to see them both doing good.
I dont think Vettel would leave RBR as long as they keep the performance level high, all the champions want is to win, the main reason why the champions in past changed teams to get into competitive car.As for lewis i don't think he has much of a chance this year, or any time soon, he is mighty quick but he lacks the mentality. it is only my opinion

Sorry I posted that on the wrong thread!
Time will tell whether Magnussen will be god or not, hopefully he'll do a lot better than his dad did at Stewart albeit he had inferior equipment. I for one will be lookin on with interest.
