0:00-3:00 – Did you know the one prediction we got bang on target? It was Max Verstappen winning on his Red Bull Racing debut

3:00-6:00 – Prediction #1 – 22 races in 2020, but it won’t be as straightforward. #2, Ferrari to be 2020 Formula 1 World Champions

6:00-12:00 – All teams working on a two-spec car this year? #3, Ferrari’s power unit, are the hybrid-turbo power units too complicated to govern?

12:00-18:00 – #4, all 10 teams will sign up to race from 2021. #5, Alexander Albon to race the full-season with Red Bull Racing in 2020 or will Pierre Gasly make a comeback to the A-team?

18:00-21:00 – #6, Max Verstappen will win the 2020 Dutch Grand Prix. #7, Verstappen vs. Leclerc, Red Bull Racing vs. Ferrari + Lewis Hamilton-Mercedes vs. Others. #8, Daniel Ricciardo to re-sign with Renault for 2021

21:00-24:00 – #9, Lance Stroll vs. Q1 – who will win? #10, A serious Lando Norris in 2020? Let’s hope not! #11, Fernando Alonso’s not coming back for Formula 1

24:00-27:00 – #12, Kimi Raikkonen to retire from Formula 1? #13, Nico Hulkenberg will return to Formula 1 in 2021.

27:00-30:00 – #14, Haas will continue in Formula 1 + they will have a driver change in 2021. #15, Valtteri Bottas 3.0 in 2020 – but will he beat HAM? #16, Mercedes will continue in Formula 1, too. As will Toto Wolff & HAM with Mercedes

30:00-33:00 – #17, Sebastian Vettel will renew with Ferrari, too. Or would you like to see him race for Red Bull Racing? #18, Driver will still blame Pirelli in 2020. #19, George Russell to score a point! A 3rd season with Williams just doesn’t make sense for Russell

33:00-end – #20, Mclaren to score a podium, but will we miss them on the TV feed still? #21, Formula 1 to take to Tik Tok in 2020. #22, the 2020 Formula 1 season will be a fun one, enjoy it!
