Yes, but it also depends on which statistics you choose - here's the full list:

Formula 1 2010 - who will be World Driver's Champion?-f1_firstracestatistics.jpg

If you take only the past 20 years, the chances of Fernando clinching the 2010 WDC is 80%, if you take the whole 60-years of F1, Fernando's chances drop to ~48% (still, I have to agree those are betting odds).

P.S. Begs the question, what's it with first-race-wins & the WDC ?

Interesting statistics there.. Im still surprised to see a lot of people are tipping schumacher for the championship looking at the poll results... While i would absolutely love to see him win i doubt if he has the car to do it with.. and with the scope of strategies greatly reduced im not sure how much Ross Brawn can contribute to that partnership.. He was and probably still is one of the best strategists in f1.. Guess its a waiting game now to find out..

I think Alonso and Ferrari will win it this season.Wish Schumi can bring back his magic.But it will take time and due to the new point system he may not be able to catch up the guys in front.So the order will be
1.Alonso
2.Vettel
3.Massa
4.Hamilton
5.Schumi/Rosberg
6.Webber

Liquidmetal, most of those votes are from pre season voting when no one had any idea about the cars and their relative performance. What's more, car development over the season can turn a slow car into a fast one like the McLaren last year. And I wouldn't conclude solely on the Bahrain GP's results that Ferrari and Red Bull are the fastest. For all we know, Merc and McLaren may not have found the right set up on this track and that could have made them slow. It'll take a couple of races before the pecking order becomes fully clear.

Note from Team-BHP Support : Please avoid typing with excessive dots........like..........this...........Thanks

So thats how the votes are what they are.. i had not realised this thread started a while back.. and yeah i do hope there are more than just 1 or 2 teams fighting for the title this time around... that would make for some interesting action... and i also hope they do something so the following races wont be as dull as the first one... I had so much expectations coming into this season... so i just dont wanna write it off like that yet.. im ready to wait if theyre ready to do something about it..

I think stats for the past 2 decades say a lot. They show a lot of consistency.

I think the reasons here are:

1. It gives a good psychological boost and motivation to the driver. It also assures that the car is performing upto required standards.

2. It sets the ball rolling and gives a good head start to the winner. Look at Alonso. He already has a 7 point lead over #2 Massa.

As I said earlier, Lets wait and watch. Vettel and Hamilton seem to be very strong contenders too.
