    I think something is wrong with the Published date given that some of the comments have posted times like "23 hrs ago". It's still a shit rag though ;)

    Mercedes are not going to hold back this weekend after the VSC debacle. I wonder how big the margin to Ferrari and Red Bull will be and if Bottas can challenge Hamilton a litte bit.

    McLaren were 1.8 secs off of the best Renault team, Red Bull, in Melbourne. I assumed they'd be behind Mercedes and Red Bull, didn't the Bigmouth Brown say they have the third best chassis? Let's see what they can do after getting the upgrades, but it already looks like he's going to have to eat his words, after all it is Adrian Newey who, after having completed his side projects, is diverting all his time and energy into making Red Bull a championship winning team again.

    lets see if the upgrades will close the gap but Bahrain is one of Mclaren's bogey track. I think Mclaren can certainly get closer to the front 3 as they don't have to worry about whether the engine would start firstly

    Renault were apparently running conservative engines so there is more to come from Mclaren

    Wouldn't Renault have been running conservative engines for all its teams though? And therefore Isn't the advantage they would gain from turning them up negated?

    Also Rutherford I heard in commentary at the Australian Grand Prix that Mclaren had THE best chassis on the grid apparently. Along with having THE best driver on the grid (and some other bloke) I'm expecting a podium.

    Don’t McLaren always have the best chassis on the grid. Apparently. I thought their problems were always down to the engines, which, of course, they don’t make.

    There was some talk in pre-season testing of the Ferrari drivers needing to lift and coast to complete a race distance simulation at Barcelona within the 105kg fuel limit.

    Bahrain is the first circuit this year that will give us a clue whether that was correct or not (Safety Car periods notwithstanding).

    Unexpected. Hamilton will have to take a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change too.

    Sigh. I miss the good old bad old days of zillions of engines and gearboxes that would last a gp if the driver was careful AND lucky
