    Yeah, but it's Vettel. The only driver I like less than him is Hamilton. Red Bull is very slow today - not sure whether they have their cars turned down or something but Ferrari have found their pace in the Christmas Break, and Red Bull have gone backwards.

    Big off by the new Williams driver...

    Yep, at least 4 of the cars look quick!

    Not sure if the race lap records will be under threat. Still had refueling back in 2004, so cars had fresh tyres and low fuel.

    Shame for DR, but I guess it shows the pressure to try to stay in touch with the top 4.

    Typically alot of sand bagging but teams have to start showing their cards now.
    This race is going to be fast thats for sure.
    I think tyre wear during the race will dictate its course thats for sure.
    RB DR is in bother but they'll learn from this event and I expect will gain ground soon enough.
    MV is a young gun, he just may over drive it and most likely cause problems but having had last year under his belt I expect he being stronger.
    Mac is such a talking point - Alonso asked left right and centre will he stay or will he go - like FFS, its the 1st race of the season what do you expect he to say lol........
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    Woot!! Ferrari!!!

    Never thought I'd cheer for Verstappen but loving seeing Hamilton being held up, and subsequently throw his toys out the pram yet again.

    Kimi is very good on tyres so hopefully he will go to super soft when he pits.

    Forza!!!!

    It feels like when MS joined Ferrari way back in 99. Their lean spell hasn't been anywhere near as long but to see them win on genuine pace just has that same feel. Awesome job. Pressured Merc in to an early stop and then grabbed their chance and never looked back.

    interestingly, despite having a massive speed advantage, and much fresher tyres (although different compound), hamilton was unable to pass verstappen on track. it was feared that these new regs would make on track passing harder, with the cars now more aero sensitive again and with much more mechanical grip, so corner speeds are up and braking distances down.
