    Yeah i believe you are right on Marquez, unless Dovi can steal a few more wins this year. I root for Rossi (among others) but looking like more of the same for Yamaha this year. That Japanese rider that won in Moto3 has my attention, i could root for him

    Yep, shocker.

    Vettel looked visibly upset at the press conference this morning. Not surprised.

    Wow! Some good laps from Mercedes!

    This all looks very interesting.

    Yea good ol' Mercedes putting in the laps again :lol:
    I do hope Ferrari and RB are a little closer to them in race pace though, we'll see tomorrow.
    And if not, it looks like there's a LOT of fun to be had in the midfield, very close pack this year, love it!

    You've got to be here and see every comment of my italian compatriots : "And We'll win the WC next year, again" "Vettel can't drive" "You replaced the wrong driver, Ferrari" "Leclerc can't drive" "Mercedes is using tyres specifically made for them" "Verstappen will crash into the Ferraris tomorrow"

    That's what I really really missed about F1: italians complaining :sharpie:

    Hahaha, well the Dutch are something to behold here as well, my gawd :lol:
    'The gap to Merc is a 10th bigger compared to last year, Honda sucks', 'They had to replace the chassis from Max before FP3, absolute shite planning, RB is failing once again' 'Gasly will be replaced by the summer break'

    Well, if there is one Merc being dominant I’m completely fine with this at the moment, holy shit :lol: well done to Valtteri! :D
    Happy for Max/Honda, sad for Dani and Grossjean, slightly dissapointed with Gasly.
    On to the next :)

    Oh, and I completely forgot about Williams, I mean eh, who?
    PLEASE get it together Claire.
    I guess Stroll is extra happy to have left them as well, scoring points and outperforming Perez, good job there too.

    My Sky decoder is broken (Yea, there is no god, I know) and couldn't watch the race live, but will in a couple of hours.
    Saw the highlights and yeah, VB pretty impressive, Verstappen did a very good job, but Ferrari......the shit hit the fan I'm afraid (in this race at least)

    Woke up early and enjoyed the race this morning. Great job from Bottas and Mercedes, really curious what happened to Ferrari. I'm sure Lewis will win Melbourne sometime...

    Never trust testing.
