Like you say Ham was in the best car but boy was he fast today.
It's terrible, they seem so focused on getting stuff correct with Vettel that they lose concentration for his teammate.

Yeah to completely dominate Rosberg like that is no easy feat and there was no reason to believe he wouldn't have done the same in Australia.

Thought McLaren would have been a bit quicker based on their performance at Melbourne.

Great job from Hulkemberg, AGAIN. Really don't understand why the top teams won't have him.

What a brilliant race so far.

Hopefully Hamilton can hold on to win but Rosberg definitely has the quicker package this week.

Massa, Bottas, Perez, Hulkenberg, Alonso, Raikkonen, Vettel, Ricciardo, Button absolutely brilliant race.

Hopefully the detractors will stay quiet after this one, F1 is still the same it's just different

Safety car has seriously ruined Hamilton's race.

Yeah only a bad mistake or engine failure will stop Rosberg.

Or maybe the mighty Lewis actually holds him off.

Unreal job by both Mercedes drivers. That's what a race looks like when you let them race and they are evenly matched for speed.

Superb. Nicos tyres must have dropped off a bit but the defending from Lewis straight after the safety car was amazing

Yes cars develop as the season goes on. In season testing is now allowed and during the longer gaps between races teams can improve what they have.

I think it's likely that Mercedes will be tough to topple, it's reminiscent to when Brawn were the best, but even they got caught by the end of the season.

Hamilton v Rosberg looks to be exciting this year though.
