i can certainly see that FB i think this is Lewis Hamilton penultimate season at the very most can see him still here at 2024. but then we predicted kimi retirement from 2015 it happened 6 yrs later

Alpha Tauri will succumb to the inevitable and rename as Alpha Centauri

George Russel will shine in 8 races

Frank Williams will be seen walking out in disgust at Monaco

2023 design analysis will show a corner in the championship where the car is wider than the circuit

Seems like you are guessing wild things based on the near impossibility of forecasting with no data amidst a major rule change.

I will predict what I think the constructors will look like based on the competency of the teams and drivers to manage the rule change. I also factor the loss of Honda.
1) Mercedes - strongest team culture, capabilities and drivers
2=) Ferrari - very strong drivers. Team that has some top talent, but not as strong as Mercedes. Weaker processes than Mercedes.
2=) McLaren - Same as above.
4) Red Bull - I think losing Honda will be a factor here. Plus I think they must have made sacrifices to 2022 development to win last year.
5) Aston Martin - I think these guys have been focusing on 2022 for a long time, and they have the best engines, and I think Vettel will be back.
6) Alpine - just don't see these guys as very good
7) Alpha Tauri - Honda will make an impact
8) Alfa Romeo
9) Williams
10) Haas

1. Mercedes- resources all on 2022 and last year would have made them angry. Only weakness could be Hamilton's motivation

2. Ferrari the strongest driver line up on the grid will finally shine through

3. Mclaren - they will be stronger after last season

4. Red Bull - the engine - how much will it impact them. So desperate is Christian he is going for a factory tour of Mercedes

5. Alpine- will the upheaval by Rossi be their undoing?

6 Aston Martin- don't see them being championship challenges same issues as Alpine by Stroll senior

7. Alpha Tauri- don't see them improving any further

8 Williams- the car has got to be better

9 . Alfa Romeo- not sure if Ferrari will be as helpful due to drivers selected by Vasseur

10. Haas - still last

Lots of good looking predictions here, following one qualifying session.
