What do people think of Toro Rosso chances this season?

Really good last year but that midfield could be ultra competitive this year?

No, he drove in the UK Clio cup for a couple of seasons, with no success, as he doesnt have a great deal of talent

Employing him solely on the basis he is LHs brother is beyond ridiculous

Also did a few BTCC races back end of last season again with limited success. Good on him for not letting his condition prohibit him though

If it's not too late, I would like to propose a very simple scoring system. It seems silly for a 1st place prediction to be worth the most when it's generally the easiest position to predict. So my suggestion is 5 points for each correct position prediction and 1 point for each incorrect prediction that's elsewhere in the top 5. Pole and fastest lap could be 5 points each too.

Red Bull have already suggested Toro Rosso could start the year ahead of them.Force India look pretty good,Williams still do and McLaren will probably improve enough to get themselves in the midfield battle.Difficult to tell.

Hi folks, been a bit busy so not had time to rethink the scoring for this year despite some good suggestions. Perhaps next year?
Master Yoda suggested 2pts (as now) for an incorrect placing in the top five with 3 more points if only one place out. The more I think about this the more I like it.
Biggus Mikkus suggested some points for the "Driver of the Day". My question is who picks this and it might favour a naughty boy who started from the back. Could create some decent arguments on the thread though
Swamp Thing suggested 5 points for all correct forecasts in the top five. with 1 point for an incorrect forecast. 5 points for Pole and fastest lap. Like it and might even suggest an even more different scoring system with a higher score for getting place 5 correct as against first. It has been harder this past few seasons to get 5th correct.

Due to my tardiness in sorting this out I don't think we can apply changes this season but would like views on the above with the possibility of introducing change for the post summer break.
