Tell me about it, it has been a long winter. Not a big fan of the new cars and engines. I sure will miss the V-10 shriek and the V-8's even sounded good.

Hopefully, I will do better this year in my fantasy league. last year, with 4 races to go I was in line to win a trip for 2 to Monaco this year. But, the Kimi says "He hurts to bad" since he was going to Super Fiat and missed the last 2 races. I was out of driver trades and ended up 83 out of several thousand, which I guess isn't to bad.

I just want Massa to dominate every race over Alonso this year and I will be happy.

Lol.

How much of a genius does hamilton look like at this moment having left mclaren and joined mercedes?

These rule changes have really shaken things up.

I think the rule changes are going to hurt F1 trying to draw in new fans. The sound of the new motors are BORING! They do not impart any excitement at all into the spectacle.

Sound horrible. I'd rather listen to a nascar.

Did the turbos in the 80's sound this bad? I sorta remember they were of similar displacement.

And all the cars look like they have a penis hanging off the front.

Yes, i said it.

finally got around to watching the race.

surprise after surprise...


Mercedes strength
Hamilton's luck
Vettel's luck
Performance of new-ish drivers Ricciardo, Magnusson, Kyvat, Bottas
Massa's luck
Williams's performance
McLaren's performance
Ferrari's mediocrity


Also SKY coverage was fantastic. Their lineup of commentators continues to be amazing. Post race follow up amazingly informative.

I agree that the younger driver's seem to be coping with the new formula better. But, then they don't have to unlearn the technique from years of driving the old cars.
