1. McLaren will score a few podiums

2. Leclerc and Vettel will run each other off at the first corner somewhere

3. Ricciardo will become increasingly banzai as he grows frustrated with the Renault

4. The Haas boys will crash into each other

5. Most of the races will be good, but people will still complain and say F1 isn't what it once was.
I agree with points 2-4.

Point 1: a few podiums!? That means they're gonna better the top half of the top three several times? That seems optimistic! However, it's your prediction so fair enough.

Point 5: I agree with your feelings in general about the old age whiners.. but I think it's not 'most people', it's just a noisy small % wink

Yep they would need 4 of the top 6 to have aan issue or a mixed up wet race in which case its anyones chance for a lucky podium.

Which honestly won't happen of course. The top 6 cars are capable of pulling a pitstop ahead of the midfield way before anyone would plan to pit. The gulf in pace is huge and in reality number 4 team is basically in a different race to number 3 team. Not even within sniffing distance unless circumstance plays it's part and they get very lucky.

I'm also not complaining about this tbh.
1989 suzuka race was on skyf1 today. So boring no one close to each other miles apart. At least we have 6 cars close ish for the lead track dependant and a mixed up midfield who fight tooth and nail for every position.

Leclerc title next year. The Ferrari is the faster car and things are looking good for them. Next year will see more of it and Leclerc is the man to take Ferrari to the top. Vettel will fade further.
