Ferrari were quickest in testing, but they were quickest last year too. McLaren getting so little running is a bit of a concern. Vettel ran more laps than McLaren.

Although GP2 (yes, I know they rebranded, but I refuse to call a spec series "formula") is the series to watch as far as I'm concerned. Looks like at least seven different drivers all have a decent shot for the championship and they can still overtake in that series.

Well, we saw three manufacturers with three different engines all with enough pace to contend, but next to zero overtaking. Qualifying will be interesting this year, anyway.

True but it's not very easy to overtake in Melbourne tho, will be better in other races.
Haas look pretty fast too, shame for the mistakes they did..
Happy for Alonso, who finally has a decent engine!

I gotta say I'm liking the liveries this year, also the halo is annoying me not nearly as much as I thought it would. Good race but unlucky Red Bull!

There are few things I enjoy more in open wheel racing than listening to Alex Jacques and Davide Valsecchi analyze an Artem Markelov overtake . . . the feature race was great.

This is the season where Vettel should win it. Imo hes the better driver anyways but thats just my opinion

Besides that Mercedes sucks ass in terms of strategies (even more than ferrari)

As long as the bad luck doesnt show up again on Ferraris side i think Seb got this.

So with Hamilton the obvious favourite to now go on and win the championship, does anybody think he'll end up surpassing the record for championship wins?

It's a bit too early to say that. Who knows how the upcoming seasons are going to go for him, it may be more realistic that he'll beat Schumacher in GP wins, but I guess that will take him another 2 season as well.

Alright, 4 races into the new season and we've already had our share of Vettel Spins, Ricciardo DNF's and Ferrari strategy fails  ;D 
I am generally enjoying the shake-up with new drivers on different teams though, it's nice to see McLaren and Räikkönen bring some new colours into the top10.
Bottas is off to a great start, I hope he can keep that up for the rest of the season

Its nice seeing Bottas beating Hamilton hope he keeps it up.Also Leclerc is looking really good in Ferrari apart from a cheeky crash and his car dying

I really hope for a Bottas vs Hamilton like Rosberg vs Hamilton in 2016. This would be the only thing to make the races interesting again, because Ferrari just cant get their stuff back together.

This would not have happened under people like Jean Todt and Ross Brawn.

Sad to see Ferrari not winning since 2007.... 2010 and 2012 were the last close calls on the championship for Ferrari.

Ferrari had chances to win some of the last championships (at least last one) without their bad luck in terms of machinery and if they wouldn't fuck up their strategy 24/7


I mean why is that strategy boi not fired yet but Maurizio Arrivabene is??

More like Vettel being unable to race in the rain and spinning in like 3 races. Ferrari doesnt have the best car, but looks like they dont have a top driver either(hopefully leclerc will be that one).

I could not agree more, at the moment Ferrai fucks up in every essential points like:

Vettel just can't handle preassure. When he was at Redbull he had the best car, and I dont think the RedBull drivers are as much under preassure as Ferrari drivers. Other Ferrari drivers like Schumacher or Alonso were completely differnt with that. They could still bring their performance under complete preassure.
The car is allright but Mercedes is still alot better, even if they do not want to admit it.
Yea and I dont think I have to say anything about Ferrari's current strategy department.

This Season will be boring af... 

It's like Bundesliga.

Mercedes = Bayern
Ferrari = Dortmund
Midfield = Midfield
Williams = New clubs from the 2nd league




Vettel has the experience to handle pressure

I think the only pressure for Ferrari Drivers is the pressure from the fans / italian media so he isnt really facing one since normal people know, that Mercedes always has / had the better car, except for 1-2 races last season which Vettel won
