I was tempted to vote for Lewis Hamilton as he is my favorite, however I believe that Mercedes won’t give him full power on his engines until latter in the season and favor reliability as well as points in the first third of the season. So In short I think Mercedes in the first third of thre season Lewis may be content with top 3 finishes and if he can steal a win or two so much the better.

So for this race I picked Verstappen forgetting that he is running a Honda this year. So I will be feeling pretty good if I managed predict Honda’s first F-1 win. Is the track at Australia twisty enough for max to block the track for two hours?

I expect Max to immediately run into Ricciardo. :D
Especially, since Ocon is not driving (which is a shame).

I guess there is a lot of pressure on Vettel this year, and as past has shown, he is in trouble when under pressure. Leclerc might be fast here and there, but i do not expect too much from him, he has to learn a lot in this team, like Bottas when he entered Mercedes.
Ferrari seems to be fast in the beginning of the season like last years, counting on the test days, but Mercedes catches Ferrari in the middle of the season the last years, and Ferrari failed, so interesting to see if history repeads itself this year. I don`t give too much on the test days, it`s no real comparsion cause no one knows who was testing what, might be a marker for the first races, but let`s see who can improve best over teh season.

My emotional vote is for Kimi, but I voted for "Some one else", e.g., Leclerc. I am going for the upset

Wow, the first results from the free practice are looking interesting with Mercedes 0.8sec infront of Ferrari, Bottas second but as fast as Hamilton, 3rd and 4th to Red Bull, 5th Vettel, and superstunning: Kimi on 6th position!! :)
Well..........KIMI FOR PRESIDENT! :lol:
Looking forward to the quali, will be intersting to see if Ferrari can close the gap.
