Ten reasons to watch F1 in 2014
The new season is finally upon us, and NOBODY knows what’s going to happen. Great, isn’t it?

1) It's impossible to have any idea of what will happen this season
Literally. People who should know reckon anything could happen when the lights go out at 06.00 on Sunday morning. Red Bull's Christian Horner has said a Mercedes one-two by two laps is on the cards, Ferrari's electronics supplier meanwhile believes it is possible not a single car will finish.
The new single-seaters (1.6-litre V6 turbos, with complex and vital energy recovery systems) are still bamboozling even the smartest minds in F1. Minds like Adrian Newey, who has yet to find a way to get Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel's title-defending RB10 working reliably for any longer than 20 consecutive laps. And even the most reliable car - Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg's Mercedes W05 - is far from bullet-proof. In between the two, no team has delivered anything close to absolute reliability and speed.
