Loads of engine and turbo failures with spectacular smoke and flames I hope.

Yes back to the good old days of blown engines, a sight to behold.

I am hoping that they won't use a large air scoop above the drivers head.

The Old turbo cars didn't have them and had a much better looking (IMO) roll hoop instead.

The whole of the cars profile would look much lower and sleeker without it.

Though there will be more reliability issues than in the last few years, I don't think it will be too bad, the engines will have been bench tested for about a year prior to the start of the racing next year

Apparently the car's noses will be quite "ugly": Formula 1 teams worried about 'ugly' 2014 cars - F1 news - AUTOSPORT.com

I think they will look similar to the 2009 Brawn car.

That remains to be seen. Hopefully the turbo engines will render the air scopp above the drivers head redundant, and cars will look much lower.

I think they've already said the New Jersey and Mexico races are likely to be postponed...

Maybe have less races, but make them longer?

There's a 2 hour limit for the races - so how come they very rarely actually race for 2 hours? I've always been of the opinion that if there's a 200 mile or 2 hour limit (whichever comes first), then perhaps they ought to race for precisely that long...?

Perhaps the fuel load limit is the restricting factor?

They should bring back refuelling as well, that would solve that issue.

Refuelling would be a great way forward, they always added a bit of excitement.
