    IMSA - Ford Gt will be their last year in 2017, dont see them continuing.
    F1 - Mercedes will continue to dominate with Ferrari finishing 3rd or 4th in constructors
    WEC - Toyota wins the WEC championship
    Indy Car - Rossi gets about 3-4 wins
    LeMans - Porsche gets another win in LMP1 and either AF Corsa or Risi Comp wins GTLM

    Ford have already committed to run in both IMSA and WEC at least until 2019 maybe longer.

    Not bad calls, although I'd put it more like -

    Mercedes - Hamilton, Rosberg
    Red Bull - Ricciardo, Verstappen
    Ferrari - Raikkonen, Vettel
    Force India - Perez, Wehrlein
    Williams - Bottas, Stroll
    McLaren - Alonso, Vandoorne
    Toro Rosso - Sainz, Kvyat
    Haas - Grosjean, Giovinazzi
    Renault - Hulkenberg, Magnussen
    Manor - Ocon, Haryanto
    Sauber - Ericsson, Nasr

    Logic behind this - Gasly will be beaten to the GP2 title by Giovinazzi. The result speculated there in that case is Gasly dropped by RB, so they keep Kvyat and GP2 champ Giovinazzi goes to Haas. Renault retain Magnussen because Mercedes want to keep Ocon. Wehrlein moves to Force India with discounted Merc engines as rumoured, leaving Ocon to lead MRT and stay on Mercedes' books. Haryanto's return has been rumoured recently.

    Sauber - Ericsson, Nasr
    This list seems a bit more realistic. Interesting, Kimi as number 1 at Ferrari. I still see Wehrlein at Manor. I would like to see Kyvat in the Force India. If Haas has an open seat it would be interesting to see who gets it.

    I can't see Kvyat being at Toro Rosso next year. Renault will either buy Ocon out of his Mercedes contract or take him on loan again (they'll pay whatever so they have a French driver in the team). The four backmarker seats will go to whoever has the biggest cheque book, but Wehrlein staying at MRT seams reasonable. No way that Nasr isn't on the grid with his Banco de Brasil money, and he's actually a decent F1 driver. And I'm not convinced yet that Stroll will go to Williams. That's my predictions.
    ...You've seen how I react to people, make them feel good, make them think that anything's possible. If I make them laugh along the way, sue me. And I don't do it so they turn round and go 'Thank you David for the opportunity, thank you for the wisdom, thank you for the laughs.' I do it so, one day, someone will go 'There goes David Brent. I must remember to thank him.'

    WEC LMP1 teams are interested in Giovinazzi.
    Would you grab a mid-tier F1 seat, or a top WEC drive?
    In saying that, Hulk snuck away and bagged himself a le Mans trophy as a side-job!

    Within the next 2-3 years we will be able to race against real F1 drivers by participating in the races real time. The simulation software will utilise real time Gps data to put the player in the race. Collisions with the real cars will affect the player, but obviously the player will not affect the real cars.

    Interesting, no?

    Very.
    It'd be interesting to drive against their ghosts in TT at least. I do think it's more than 2-3 years away.
    Also they wouldn't like to give away their secrets. If the data is available to us, it's certainly available for their competitors.
    I know the competition is always and for a while been analysing this sort of performance data so access may not be an issue - answering my own questions here lol
