Over the past month we’ve had 11 new cars and 22 drivers all claiming that this will be “their year” and thousands of kilometres in testing completed.
This weekend the 2013 season starts in Melbourne, Australia, and we get to see whether any great strides have been made during the off season. I’m only going to make one prediction in this preview, and that is who will win the title: Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing. I am never correct at making predictions however, so…go Vettel!
