So what do we know about 2012? The team line ups have nearly all been annouced - only Williams and HRT (and Caterham?) have an empty seat. 6 World Champions on the grid (is this a record?) and 3 of them multiple WDC winners. Here's the teams so far: Red Bull - Vettel / Webber Mclaren - Button / Hamilton Ferrari - Alonso / Massa Lotus - Raikkonen / Grosjean Sauber - Kobayashi / Perez Toro Rosso - Ricciardo / Vergne Williams - Maldonado / TBC HRT - de la Rosa / TBC Marussia - Glock / Pic Mercedes AMG - Schumacher / Rosberg Caterham - Kovalainen / Trulli Sahara Force India - di Resta / Hulkenberg 4 teams have changed their names and (thankfully) the nonsense surrounding the Lotus name has been resolved. Cosworth are only listed as having one team with HRT still to announce what power plant they will use. Where to for and Barrichello and Sutil? Will 2012 be another Red Bull walk over? Can Mclaren get out of the blocks sprinting rather than limping? Will Ferrari provide Alonso with a car capable of winning regularly? Can Mercedes move up to challenge the lead teams? Who will be the best of the mid-field and can one of the back markers move up? So many questions but I'm afraid I don't have any answers for you. Any thoughts you would care to share would be welcomed.
