Schumacher to grow a beard - That he did, but he obviously had to shave it off.

Heidfeld will return - Naw he didnae.

Schumacher will finish ahead of Rosberg in the standings, all because of his beard - He finished ahead of him in several races, but not because of having a beard :disappointed:

Mercedes to finish 4th in the championship - They wish they did.

Vettel will get a new celebration - He did, three fingers instead of 1 or 2.

Lewis Hamilton will stop wearing those huge diva sunglasses - He didn't and like a diva threw a hissy fit about set-up in Spa, also asked for the skins on his baked potato to be taken off by Edward Scissorhands too.

Massa to return to the podium - "Ees diffico fo sho, but I did return to podium".

Alonso will play his mind games as usual - this time it might be that De La Rosa is the biggest threat on the grid - Aye, he's somehow thinking he's racing Newey when it's Vettel, maybe all the helmet changes are confusing the lad.

HRT will miss at least one winter test - It's a tradition for them.

Some old F1 pensioner will make a controversial statement - Probably, Gethinceri seems to make a lot of them.

Lewis Hamilton will collide with Nico "Britney" Rosberg resulting in two singles coming out "Hit me baby one more time" by Nico "Britney" Rosberg and "oops I didn't do it again" by Lewis Hamilton - Sadly, no. Although it was close to happening at the Bahrain GP when Rosberg was showing Hamilton and Alonso the way. But he forgot one thing: "ALL DA TIME YOU HAVE TO LEAVE DA SPACE OK?!"

Webber will claim he's number 2 but he's actually number 3 due to Buemi replacing him - Don't know what was going through Red Bull's minds, should have happened.

Jos the Boss will create a new record beating his old one of predicting the weather wrong for all the races - Aye he did, he even had the cheek to alter half of his predictions and scoring system until jez101 and I sorted him out.

Button will be hailed "Mr.Smooth" - When's he not? He's trying to keep a little beard so he can be called "Mr.Rough".

Toro Rosso will be in the bottom half of the midfielders - Indeed, and realised that dropping the Moose and Dinosaur was a bad mistake.

Sauber will have good testing pace - I can't remember.

Williams will be forgotten about - With Maldonado in the team, it was unlikely.

Caterham will bring updates which are worth a second but they won't be really upgrades, it will just be the teams taking stuff off of their cars to give the team a chance after their 1s upgrades fail once again - Not sure if this happened, but I think it did in Spain.

Kimi Raikkonen will wake up in the 2nd half of the season - Well he did kind of, but fell asleep at Brazil only to realise that he could not pass as Gandalf had put a gate in his way on his quest to return to the track.

DRS will ruin races again - Hm...think they got right this year but some overtake if not all still feel wrong.

Button will be overpraised like Di Resta - That indeed did happen.

Nico Rosberg will be anonymous - Anonymous in the second half of the season after Monaco.

Eddie Irvine will return to F1 - He tried to take over HRT and bring the base to Ireland, didn't materialise though.

Toro Rosso will realise that the dude with antlers and fur was the best driver on the grid - They just don't want to admit it.

Bernie will claim the Olympics stole his medal idea finally showing his insanity - Tried to get F1 into the Olympics, if that had happened then I have no doubt that he would have.

Team "Watermelon GP" will dominate the season with Slyboogy as the lead driver, with Evilwhippet as his race engineer (ordering him to ruin Bruno Senna's race) and with Coach as Coach - That we did do, does day dreaming count?

Jaime Alguersuarus will invade the Bahrain track thinking he's back in Jurassic Park due to some dinosaurs on the grid (Barricehllo, De La Rosa, Schumacher & Trulli) - This was going to happen, that was until Barrichello and Trulli departed ways with F1.

And finally:
Buemi will win 5 races and challenge for the championship after replacing Webber after 8 races - No :disappointed:

Vettel will win the WDC. Correct.

Hamilton will leave Mclaren. You heard it here first, folks...

HRT will have a different lineup than their regular lineup in atleast two races. Wrong?!

Rosberg will be in front of Schumacher. Yes.

Schumacher is going to lose at least two front wings. And he lost a lot more while he was at it :D

Vettel will win the Australian Grand Prix. Wrong

Renault are back at the front. Sort of!

Massa will be better than last year. Yes!!!

Sauber will be mentioned in a newspaper headline. Yes!!!

Di Resta will not give an exciting interview. *yawn*

Button will beat Hamilton for the second year in a row... So wrong

...but Hamilton will get more podiums than Button. Yup

Caterham will outqualify Williams and finish higher than them on merit more than once. I don't think so and I can't be bothered to look it up.


Not too shabby ;)
