Race Day : 29th March
The season opener in Melbourne was nothing to write home about. In fact the off track drama overshadowed the on track lack of drama pretty badly.
That isn’t to say there was nothing to talk about at all. The Mercedes look scarily in charge still and Hamilton has gone back to another level that Rosberg is going to have to top if he wants to challenge his team mate. Williams looks fighty and the Ferrari looks better then it has in recent years, but then again Red Bull look like they’ve taken a step back (or at least the Renault engine has) so maybe the Ferrari just looks better because more people are falling down instead of catching up?
Either way the race was quite dull and we only had 11 finishers from I believe 15 starters anyway! Fernando Alonso was replaced and his replacement never made it to the grid, which might have been a blessing for Kevin as Jenson seemed to be using the race as a extra test day just rolling around at the back of a grid with a bit of a squabble with the Force India of Sergio Perez.
We look to the Grand Prix of Malaysia to turn these things around for us!
