I cannot see Williams getting close to the front in 2015. The customer engine is not as good as the factory one . Lack of depth in the engineering and research departments will hold them back with what will be a tweeked 2014 chassis. The leap to the very front will be just too hard for anyone else other than . Merc factory team 1,2 with Riccardo and Alonso getting the rest of the points. Renault will find more power and coupled with the best chassis will see them again closest to the Mercedes.The Honda engine will be fast from the get go after a year of development, the McLaren chassis appears to be on the conservative side but Alonso will wring 120% out of it as only he can.
Williams Grand Prix Engineering , sound great doesn't it? But really it is set up as a cash cow , a very special group that thrives on bringing in loads of sponsorship and that's about it. How about Ferrari? At the moment they are lost in the techno mist. Yes they know all about turbo's but all this energy harvesting science stuff has them looking longingly at the past glory days of long distance road racing like the Le Mans. Vettel will retire at the end of the season. The car will drive him mad, if only Shumi was about to help him out. Ferrari really need more Germans, if they thought last year was bad 2015 will be worse.
Any one else? The others are there just to make up the numbers.
So how do I know? Well I would have to kill you ,as they say in the movies.
