Ricciardo for world champ in 2017. I'd like to see Bottas handing LH his arse on occasions, as I think he can, and it'd be great if Ferrari can produce a winning car. McLaren are yet again looking like abject failures, expect Alonso to walk away part way through the season if it doesn't improve. Stroll will bankrupt Williams just like Maldonado did with all the crashes he's going to have, and Palmer will visit the podium more than once for Renault.
The new cars look interesting, the tracks need to change, they should bin all the Tilke designed ones and revert back to the classics, where overtaking and real skill is rewarded.

Was good to see that the tarmac run-offs have been almost completely replaced with gravel traps in Barcelona.

That should give the chaps an incentive to respect track limits a bit more than has been the recent trend.

Nice video showing F1 2017 vs 2016.
Flying lap in a 2016 F1 car (Lewis's pole lap) in Barcelona compared to the fastest lap of testing with Kimi in a 2017 car.

That would have been an interesting watch but Formula One Management have taken exception alas. Oh, hang on, just clicked the 'Open Youtube Page' link and all's good.

Nice piece of syncing although I'm pretty sure Hamilton did a quicker lap than a 1:22?

Hmm not sure about the exact laptime he did but I noticed he made apex more often in last years car than Kimi did.

Think I'm mistaken about the lap time (age thing or that's my excuse anyway).

Got to admit I'm feeling a damn sight more interested in the opening race with Ferrari's apparent form. Just hope it's not all smoke 'n mirrors ending up with the usual Merc 1, 2. Dont know

I'm tempted to think Mercedes is sandbagging, but expect things could be closer this year. Really looking forward to it kicking off, unlike my other half!
