Another poor day for McLaren yesterday, but a good one for Williams.

Cracking race.

Well deserved winner.

Enjoyed the commentators dig at the Honda F1 engine programs success compared to their IndyCar one.

You'd like to think so, but honestly, probably not.

guess Vettel showed some pace today but the Red Bull's seem to be well-off what was hoped.just got to see when we get a full race if all the changes do produce better more exciting action and we aren't complaining about the lack of real over taking as usual.the tyre's are designed to last so think its more one stopping this season.

Not a lot of excitement in the first F1 race of the year in Australia. No wheel-to-wheel racing and excitment at the front of the pack. Vetel's first win for years came through tyre strategy rather than anything else. Still, there's MotoGP in Qatar going on right now to give fans of real racing some thrills into the evening.

I know got up late and missed the winning pitstop.

Hopefully this is not what the season will be like.making the tyre's last longer maybe stopped drivers having to manage there pace but just means everyone one stops.

China next where there will be more chances to over-take according to the experts.

Saturday qualifying rained off in Qatar, in the desert! The start of the main event of the weekend, the MotoGP race, delayed because of some rain which left no one sure what the track was like? I suppose it’s all going to be blamed on man-made global warming. Everything else is.
Still, the race was a cracker when it got going 3/4 of an hour late. Well done, Maverick! And fromage dur to Mr. Zarco.
