So now that pre season testing is over, thoughts on the season to come, 2 weeks til Melbourne, TV will be on all weekend

Merc look strong again, so do Williams, Have Renault caught up to the Mercedes power, Will Lotus now powered by Merc be the Dark Horse. Will Seb be able to prove himself in the Ferrari,

But NIck they go round corners in both directions, I am sure that this will cause deep dissent from the US members of LTUP.

Ferrari seems, from the testing, the team which made the best improvements.

Nowhere to get the merc, yet, but should be able to fight the others.

It appears that none of the engine mfgs are follow merc's turbo design. Big mistake. It's what set them apart from everyone else. More power. Like Enzo Ferrari said in 1934, "Aerodynamics are for those who can't build engines." Holds true today. Merc had more power, therefore, they could run with more downforce and still beat everyone else in the straight aways. Then, when they got to the turn, they had more downforce to get through the turn faster. Enzo is still right today.

BTW, I'm a big Ferrari fan. I really wish that Ferrari could have gotten Daniel Riccardo rather than Vettel. Maybe in 2016 when his contract is up. Vettel will be the underdog by then and they can kick him out.

I don't care what Car Danial is in, as long as its a winning one

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi , Oi,,,,

I wonder how much extra interest there will be in the USA once Hass makes their entry next year, as a Ferrari customer team, Danica Patrick was a possible driver, but I think she ruled herself out, Which US driver will be given a seat???

Yep, I am. But the race coverage begins at 12:30AM here. I'm going to watch the rebroadcast at 6:00AM.

Looking forward to see how Hamilton and Rosberg do this year. Will Mercedes continue to dominate? Will Vettel make a difference with Ferrari? Regardless, I'm hoping to see some good racing.

That reminded me of Will Ferrell somehow.

It won't make much difference at all. F1 is just not very popular here.

Danica would not have any chance at this point (or any point) in her career to compete at that level. Not even close.

This season I'll be rooting for anyone but Mercedes, hopefully Vettel or Bottas, maybe Sainz.
