Wow. Interesting. Don't think I've seen a prediction for a while that doesn't feature teammates at all. In the name of curiosity, Nando - are they by any chance, your top 5 drivers too? ie the drivers you consider the "5 best" of the grid.
For my own predictions:
1. Lewis Hamilton - I don't think the Merc is the fastest car, but IMO it's a car that could very well suit the one-off demands of Albert Park.
2. Sebastian Vettel
3. Nico Rosberg
4. Romain Grosjean
5. Jenson Button
6. Kimi Raikkonen
7. Mark Webber
8. Fernando Alonso
9. Nico Hulkenberg
10. Felipe Massa
I'm predicting Checo to struggle in his first ever qualifying session with a top car - my guess is around mid-Q2, ie 13th/14th.
1. Sebastian Vettel - who takes the lead through the pits as it turns out the Mercedes has to do a stop more than Vettel.
2. Jenson Button - plays a smart, canny race with tyre preservation and shines in a front-limited circuit.
3. Fernando Alonso
4. Kimi Raikkonen - hounding Alonso for the podium though
5. Lewis Hamilton
6. Nico Hulkenberg
7. Mark Webber - having cold feet at Albert Park as always
8. Romain Grosjean
9. Felipe Massa
10. Nico Rosberg
Unfortunately I think Checo will struggle in the race too - trying to repeat a one-stop and it turns out that he's not such a great tyre manager without a tyre-friendly Sauber...
Strategy predictions... Giventhat in qualifyng, top cars generally run prime (Q1), option Q2 and option Q3, they generally have 2 new primes, and 1, or no, new options (if they run two laps in Q3).
As such I think some will go oPP (lowercase denotes qualifying-used, uppercase denotes new tyre set) - or some going more flat out and going ooPP. Basically - the two strategy choices we saw in China 2012.
