Some of you probably know the website already, or seen me rave about it on here - F1Fanatic. I think it's a very informative and entertaining site, with lots of in depth information and reviews.

At the start of this season they produced a series of questions about the season ahead, which I copied down and made predictions for. I only recently remembered I'd done it and thought I'd share it. Some I was way off and some spot on as you will see.

Perhaps we can introduce this on the forums before the start of next season, just for fun.

Points for one of the one of the new teams by the midway point in the season.

It was actually Virgin, but Sauber completed the least amount of laps this season.

11. Who will be the most impressive rookie (including Kamui Kobayashi and Jaime Alguersuari)?

12. Which will be the most entertaining race?
Montreal, Canada
Was pretty good and was voted best race of the season on F1Fantic. I was watching it on a heavily reflective screen in LeMans, so didn't get to experience it properly and thought there were better races.

Hmm. Vettel dominated with 10
