Here's 10 of my predictions for 2009...

Chrysler will merge with GM. Though Jeep will be floated off, maybe to Nissan-Renault. If its got any sense it will completely restructure the line-up and make a big play of what is still one of the world's most recognisable brands. Jeep designed i-pod anyone?

Alonso will sign for Ferrari. So goodbye Kimi for the 2010 season.

Audi will lose a bigger percentage of its business than BMW or Merc.

Company cars will become a business tool again, rather than a perk. (see above)

Hyundai-Kia will enter a major form of motorsport.

Peugeot will win Le Mans.

The Ford Focus RS will prove to be better than an Impreza or an Evo, proving that four-wheel drive isn't everything. But it still won't beat the Megane R26R's record around the 'Ring.
