Lewis believes we'll see less overtaking this year due to higher downforce

Possibly although it may see the return of the more ambitious and more skilled overtakes. I would rather less overtakes if it means the ones we get are better.

It's true though, I don't understand why theyre chasing lap time when it will mean less overtaking. While the 2009 regs gave us ugly high wings and that, coupled with the tyres they gave us far more overtaking. Look at the early 2000s for far faster cars, but strawberry float all in terms of consistent overtaking.

It'll be bad in the opening races, and worse as the season goes on and the teams pull ever more aero grip out of the cars.

Thanks for posting. Almost feel like a time traveller watching that. Roland's car driving past then coming back along on the back of a truck is just ugh. Staggering they restarted qualifying after that.

I think everyone is fairly optimistic before the first race. [emoji1]

Quite nice Sauber. Though not too hard to be nicer than last years!

I think they've botched the livery a bit, it's too busy, but the shape of these new cars is very cool, they look much more aggressive.

I quite like the look of the Sauber, but absolutely strawberry floating hate the sharkfins that are coming back this year.

Very much like the look of that Sauber , i wonder what weight difference the tyres well make especially to pit stops.
