Red Bull clearly have the best chassis and aero but can only finish in P3 with the renualt engine. Not a chance RoGro.

However things look even worse for Ferrari, least power out of all the engines and a fundamentally bad car.

Spot on. They also have to beat the Williams and FI's which aren't too shabby.

In normal circumstances with the teams mentioned I'd put money on him not been on the podium, he's more than capable but as others have said car probably isn't sorted yet and the engine certainly isn't.

Lotus are right to target the podium at every race. If anything they should be aiming for the top step of the podium at every race.

When I play darts, I always aim for treble twenty. I hit it extremely rarely, but it's always what I aim for.

Race wins should always be what all F1 teams are aiming for, even those more often seen at the back of the grid. Whether they achieve it or not is another question, much like whether I manage score a 180 at darts is a different question to whether I'm trying to score a 180. I've never managed it, but it doesn't stop me trying.

Lotus will sort things out and bounce back. They suffered a big blow over winter, and were late developing because they had to push all last year on no budget. I also expect some good results from Maldonado this year, podiums.
