F1 2012

Looking forward to another interesting F1 year. 2010 was a cracking season. Although 2011 was less interesting from a championship perspective, I was still quite interested in all the races. I think DRS and the Pirelli tyres did the job of making the events more interesting. I hope for more of the same this year.

The cars this year look really ugly. I guess you can’t have a rule that the cars must look good but something needs to be done 🙂 Only the McLaren looks good and kudos to them for that. Nice to see them putting a premium on the aesthetics. Of the rest, I think the Sauber is the ugliest of all. Maybe it will be fastest.

It’s clear that Vettel took a step forward last year. I have a feeling he won’t be champion this year. It’s just hard to see him keeping it up for three years in a row and I expect all the teams to be closer making things a little harder for him.

The Button – Hamilton duel should be interesting. I think Hamilton is the faster driver and hopefully he can avoid Massa this year.

I’ll be going for Webber again this year. I hope he’s in the mix. At least his Swisse ad is less funereal this year.

Oh, also nice to know we’ll be getting the Brundle commentary here in Oz despite the BBC/Sky shuffling that went on.

Let’s see what develops …
