After a long Winter that was surely too short for most of the F1 teams, Melbourne is upon us. All-new hybrid powertrains, revised aerodynamic rules with ugly noses and no exhaust blowing, different tires, the list of changes goes on… While the Renault-powered teams are still playing catch-up, the balance of power has shifted towards Mercedes and a revitalized Williams with a stunning new Martini livery. Ferrari will be desperate to capture the championship this year and arguably have the strongest driver pairing in the field.
Due to it’s street course nature, the Albert Park circuit isn’t always a good indication of which teams will be the strongest. But with rain forecast for Sunday, we are sure to have a race full of surprises.
