I'm looking forward to the cars being unveiled and the start of testing. It will be interesting to see how much progress Honda and Renault have managed to make over the winter and it's nice to have a proper Renault works team again. I'm expecting Manor and Haas to be somewhere around Sauber at the back, maybe even stealing a point or two.

If Rosberg stays on form from the end of last season and Ferrari produce another decent car to go with their engine gains we could have a pretty decent 3-way battle for the WDC.

Best part of the season is between now and qualifying at the first race.

All those dreams that get crushed in Australia, although if the Mercs end up far and away in testing then its all over already.

I'll wave to you all from Melbourne :mrgreen:

I'm actually optimistic about this season, there's plenty of reasons to be positive with Ferrari more competitive, Rosbergs resurgence at the end of last season, Haas joining etc. Plus good seasons usually follow gooseberry fool ones.

Renault is the only one i have seen so far but yeah there should be more teams showing there cars for this year. Years ago it was normal for teams to have already unveiled there new cars by now. But could be down to the testing ban

Whenever has a team with an out-there livery ever gone on to improve on its performance from the previous year?

I can't seem to find it. There should really be a rule where if a thread rolls over the last post is a link to the new one!
