    2) Ogier struggles with setup and car adaption and has mechanical issues though the season.

    I didn't say they would be fighting for 1st only 1 of them will win and Paddon will be second. I covered the bases for the Fiesta, Citroen and Hyundai being the best car. One of them will run away with it and the rest will fight for second with pardon who will beat them

    1) Citroën will be the quickest car by far, leaving Meeke enough margin to take al lot of wins with clear margin and cruise to the title in "Seb-style".(Fail)
    2) Due to lack of cars getting ready (following crashes, obviously), Toyota will have to do more events than planned with just 2 cars.(Fail)
    3) WRC2 will have closer battles than WRC, Suninen champion.(Fail)
    4) There will be serious issues with spectator control on several events, leading to cancelled stages if not accidents. (WIN)
    5) NOT will disappear from the forum due to mental health issues. (Still around!)

    I think we have to suspend Toyoda. He doesn´t follow the rules ...

    If we suspended everyone who didn't follow the rules..........
    However, I will apply what examiners call 'rubric error'. You've been asked for 3 examples and give 5, so only the first 3 you give are marked.
    I would love to see Sordo win in Spain but I don't think Hyundai will perform well on tarmac (another from me!!)

    1. Colin Clark will continue to wear even more pink clothes.
    2. Ogier will be champion, but only just. Close battles with Meeke and Neuville while Tanak and Paddon are not far off either.
    3. Ostberg mentions his newly created 'learning curve' at least 42 times at stage ends.
    4. Hanninen impresses and after some time equals Latvala, who becomes frustrated and gets destroyed mentally. (I'd say after 4 ralies he's been less than impressive!)5. Wins for 5 drivers (in order of most to least wins): Ogier, Meeke, Neuville, Paddon, Tanak. (Missed JML)

    I know Ogier has a big head, but I don't think its quite big enough for Neuville to fit in there even if you opened the top up.

    All credits to this topic, which is so fun reading. Very good invention from you Mintex. However it was asked five (5) predictions . Maybe we could have the chance to five more if we like to change, like Pickems, you know, my new ones would be like this:

    1. Colin changes to new colour on his scarfves.
    2. Ostberg wins one round.
    3. Toyota win Manus WC.
    4. Ogier failures in winning any event in the first half and has a nervous breakdown and starts RX-ing instead. (FAIL -edit)
    5. NOT gives a reasonable good predict in his five crystal balls.

    Btw - where is NOT? Waiting to see if my 5th will correspond. (As you well know our resident oracle is far too cool to indulge in prediction that is open to critical examination!)

    Hmmm...just hope Bertelli can "cautiously" improve his "lower speed crash" technique; for now it really doesn't look low enought...http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4mlrmk
