Fans’ Expectation from Formula 1 2018 Season

F1 2018 season is going to be big as we are going to see some major technical modification in design and engineering of the cars. Furthermore, the driver lineup, race calendar and logo is also been changed which can have an impact on the sports viewership. It is assumed that the halo will have an impact not only on drivers performance but on viewers too. We can expect a tough battle between Ferrari and Mercedes. Most importantly, the Malaysian Grand Prix and the grid girls will be missed.

We asked some F1 Fans about their expectations for F1 2018 season.

Clemens Sehi is a German F1 fan and Vettel’s supporter. He expects a lot from the 2018 Formula 1 season, but not to be any more exciting. It will be pretty much the same, I guess, with Mercedes going into this year as the favourite. Anyways, I hope that it will be closer than last year. It would be great for the whole sport. I think that an important point is the new halo head protection system, that will be introduced this season. It will surely make a significant visual impact to F1. But will it also be an impact when it comes to results as well? I can only hope so.

Terrance Charles, is a massive Formula 1 follower since 2002 and supports Ferrari. He says “New season is expected to be a thriller especially this is the 4th year of the new Turbo – Hybrid regulations, hence the playing field is expected to be alot closer. The pecking order is not going to change however as a avid F1 enthusiast, i can see Red Bull chasing Mclaren from the get go and Ferrari not far behind.”

Mertol Shahin, from Bulgaria is a F1 fan since 1997 has briefly but abruptly described the current situation of constructor’s championship “Redbull doesn’t have the engine, Ferrari doesn’t have the drivers. I expect Mercedes winning both titles again.”

Gautam Sharma, and Indian student and Formula 1 fan says “I expect Lewis Hamilton to dominate and win the Drivers Championship with Mercedes wrapping up the constructors championship. Vettel is going to give a tough fight along with Red Bull.”

Ben Smith, F1 fanboy for the last 25 years supports Mercedes and says “A Mercedes 1/2 in the drivers championship – Hamilton will be given No. 1 status – I honestly think this is the hang up in his new contract, he wants it but Toto wants to keep the same rivalry. There is no way they will let brand Hamilton go.

Red Bull will favour Max if Danny doesn’t sign a new contract if it looks like he will defect to Merc/Ferrari. That contract depends purely on the performance of Renaults power unit. Red Bull will probably make a good show for the first half of the season but will then eat up some grid penalties for new engine parts (so will most Renault powered teams).

On Renault – they have a decent line up and will probably battle it out with Force India (and maybe the 2017 Ferrari aka Haas) for 4th in the constructors. Alonso will retire from F1 after another horrific McLaren season. Loads of new gimmicks will com in to try and arrest a declining tv audience, fundamentally the sport won’t change. Roll on 2021 and new engine/car rules!”

Demostene Neacsiu, working as a Turbocharger Engineer at Mercedes AMG Petronas since 2014 has some close insights. “I expect nothing from the season besides a constructor’s 1st place trophy from a team point of view. As of on-track action and Liberty Media’s changes, I don’t like the new logo and the way they are operating the media, it is all very teen-ish and F1 is a mature sport, it should be serious, further more re-enforcing that, grid kids should not be present in front of very secretive, powerful, dangerous and expensive, it’s just not right from my point of view. About the Halo, I hated it in 2017 in terms of looks and purpose but I think they blend quite well in the 2018 cars, my eyes don’t jump to it, however, I would still prefer no Halo.”

Euan Domloge, says “My big prediction is that the relatively warm reception given by most drivers to halo, will quickly be forgotten when we have a first corner incident and someone blames the Halo. So far it has only been tested in isolation, with drivers doing solitary laps and reporting no significant impairment. However, the frantic starts of F1 races are a very different environment, with everyone bunched up and cars all over the place. In that environment I predict it could prove a distraction.
Personally I hate the Halo, although I can’t make a reasonable argument against it, except to say that perhaps it’s time for the FIA to accept that F1 can no longer be an open cockpit formula. Le Mans prototypes have had enclosed canopies for years, and no problems have directly resulted from it.”

Steve Perry, from Costa Rica says “I think the beginning of the season will be interesting, but by the end of the season with only a few Mercedes engined cars still running on their third and final engine penalties will basically ruin the championship. Hamilton will win, as expected and the races will be pretty much processional with Mercedes leading Ferrari and Redbull with the rest kind of making up the semi entertaining rear.

I don’t want to sound cynical, but that is the way it will be. The championship is entirely too predictable. The cars are amazing, there are occasionally amazing displays of driving skill and I love technology operating on the edge, but bottom line is there is no real drama in the championship. Maybe qualifying is interesting, but most race days are only interesting to me because of the commentary on the technology and some of the more esoteric strategies. I don’t have much hope that the new ownership will improve the show. In fact it will probably drain the few remaining things I enjoy from it, but that remains to be seen. In the meantime, I will watch and get out of it the pieces I love.”

Matt Awd, added some different perspective after few races. He says “For as many years as I can remember I have watched every race of Formula 1, this year I have seen none.Firstly, the halo system, how many drivers have been hit by a tyre compared to crashes, you’ll understand what I mean when a car is upside down and the driver can’t get out. This is motorsport, not bowls, it’s as sterile as an operating theatre, and as a Dutch friend once said, a bit of dirt is good for the resistance.

Secondly, the grid girls are gone, good for the paedophiles of the world, Liberty Media director by chance, all of whom should be shot by that’s just my insignificant opinion, not so good for the girls who enjoyed the job, and not for adults like myself who have no problem with 20s something girls adding a bit of spice to the party, much to girlfriends displeasure. I saw part of a Moto GP the other day, all the things Formula 1 is missing. All in all, bring back Bernie.”

I will be frequently adding more views from the F1 avid fans, journalists and technical analysts. If you have some insights, personal views or big news, feel free to comment below.

Happy Racing Season!

    Where can I listen formula 1 online? I always listen it on radio 5 but now its blocked here. I love English commentary, any suggestion?

    • Sheheryar Khan says:

      Edward, there are multiple channels available online that you can visit to watch Formula 1 race. You can use VPN to avoid geo-restrictions and access your favorite channels. Hope that answers your question. 🙂

  3. Tyler says:

    What is the cheapest way to watch F1 races online?

    • Sheheryar Khan says:

      There are multiple streaming channels which allow you to watch the races for free. If in case that channel isn’t available in your region, you can use PureVPN to get access.

    • Danyal Effendi says:

      The cheapest way to watch F1 is by accessing Free channels with PureVPN. You can get 2-Year subscription to access the free channels such as Star Sports (IND), RTL (GER), Channel 4 (UK), Ten Play (AUS), ABC (US) etc to watch every race live for 2 seasons. It will cost you only $2.87 per month.

  4. Yi Ling says:

    Which channel have Formula 1 HD live streaming with English commentary?

    • Danyal Effendi says:

      Sky Sports F1 is best for HD streaming but is available only in UK. But you know the trick to access it 😉
      Besides this F1 is launching there official streaming platform F1 TV which will be HD with commentary in multiple languages including English. You can check that out too.

    Hi Troy, Thanks for your comment. As far as comparing AirVPN with PureVPN goes, there’s a lot of difference between the two. PureVPN has servers in over 140 countries whereas AirVPN has only a handful of servers. If we compare the prices, then PureVPN also has an edge over AirVPN. On the contrary, AirVPN and PureVPN offer similar security measures: OpenVPN protocol and AES 256 bit encryption. However, both VPN providers support P2P file sharing. We tested PureVPN and found its performance to be much better than AirVPN. So, if you’re looking for a VPN to use with torrents, then give PureVPN a try.

    Hi guys,

    Anyone here had any luck being able to actually pay for F1TV Pro if you live outside the country you are trying to access F1TV Pro from? I would like to hear any success stories, like successful virtual debit/credit card transactions to pay for service. Looks like cards need to be from the same country as (virtual) IP location that you are trying to access services of.
