So the worst kept secret in F1 history was confirmed today:

With that, what do you think the big stories will be next year? Bold predictions, craziness and outright lies here!

- Checo pushes Max a little too hard and will actually move ahead of Max in the championship. Max will whine and RB will change this immediately.
- Lewis wins #8 and promptly retires, having thrown down a gauntlet that may never be picked up. George gets his car. Hulk gets the other one. Valterri goes back to Williams
- Mclaren finishes third in the constructor's championship. RIC and NOR both get on the podium often.
- Seb and Alonso will be mid-field runners. Seb will routinely be behind his teammate again. Alonso won't because Ocon.
- Williams will show up with a bunch of new bits on their cars and be in the mid-field fight. No one will convince me this wasn't part of the "Sure borrow George for a weekend" deal.
- Haas will be garbage, will not get rid of Mazepin until at least halfway into the season, and will come close to ruining Schumacher the younger before he even gets started.
- Infighting at Ferrari gets another team principal fired.
- Kimi still won't retire.
- Tsunoda will podium at Japan and it will be EPIC. Almost as epic as when Checo wins in Mexico.

You said Bold.

That’s a good list. I think Checo may struggle a bit (still significantly better than Albon) but will show their car is more of a mess than people realize.
Ferrari has noted 2021 will be a challenge, but they’ve got a new CEO. Will be interesting to see how patient he remains.

My 2021 Constructors prediction:

1) Mercedes
2) RB
3) McLaren - like their drivers, Danny and Lando will keep them competitive every week
4) Alpine - the Renault car improved pretty significantly throughout the season; Alonso who should podium with some frequency
5) Ferrari - they’ve got to be better this year, right?
6) Alpha Tauri- excites about Tsunoda; Gasly is turning out to be a strong midfield driver
7) Aston Martin - will they be able to clone the Merc again? don’t trust Stroll; Seb is Seb
8) Alpha Romeo - Not sure they can finish anywhere else
9) Williams - George will score, wonder how much $$ Williams was given for George’s weekend w Toto?
10) Haas - they’re a mess. Their company is a big competitor of the one my dad works for and they sell inferior products. Sucks to suck.

Since Chrysler bought Peugot, I suspect it will improve much more in 2021.

Not sure if this is Tofficial F1 thread for 2021, but two months until FP1 in Bahrain!

I'm looking forward to another season. With Cyril out at Renault, I'll be so interested to see how it goes this upcoming year.

I want to see McLaren with an AMG lump.

And I want to see how Perez and Dutchy get along.

Aside from that, Lewis racks up #8.
