    Hamilton will win WDC no, 6.

    Danny Ric will show up Red Bull and Vercrashbangwallop by taking Renault to 3rd spot in the Championship. (I hope).

    Le Clerc will humiliate Vettel. Repeatedly!

    Hamiton now sporting cornrows and more metal in his ears - what a sight!

    Audiance viewing figures will fall.

    Bernie will be sniffing around to see what he can pick up.

    Prediction:
    None of the cars shown so far will be the same in Oz.
    No competitor shows their hand completely this early.
    Fairly obvious really.

    I was talking to number 2 son (27) about F1 and trying to explain why I cant be bothered with it anymore, it turns out that all the reasons I don't like it , the money, the tech, the excitement (lack of), are the exact same reasons that he likes it, seems its another one of those "age" things.
    I prefer to watch a couple of episodes of Car Sausage, at least its engineering I can understand.

    Much to my surprise I actually enjoyed the Barcelona practice today.
    The reds do seem to have a good car. I'll watch tomorrow just to see how Le Clerc fares against Vettel, but after that I'll wait till Oz.

    If anyone has Sky but not F1 and wants it they are doing a deal for £10 a month guaranteed for 2 years

    Intesresting. If you pay for Sky HD (£10 a month) and don't have sky sports they give you F1.

    Just watched the first couple of episodes of Formula 1: Born To Survive on Netflix - quite a raw, behind the scenes look at things across the 2018 season.

    Quite enjoyable so far.

    If any of you watched the Doha MotoGP race on Sunday you'll know what F1 is missing. Throw a blanket over the first 8 bikes, lots of overtaking, plus very few seconds between the first 8 and 15th - plus the rookie who was on the second row of the grid, stalled it pulling away for the parade lap so had to start from the pit lane, and within a few laps was going 1.5 seconds a lap quicker than the leader! Totally captivating race, 1st and 2nd separated by hundredths at the finish line, Brit 3rd despite a very dodgy ankle. Promises to be a fantastic MotoGP season.

    Must admit, even though I prefer BTCC, I'm quite looking forward to F1 starting again. If you believe what you read, should be a closer season this year, hope so. But we'll see. ( As long as Mercedes
    win it in the end. :))

    Went off it for a while, still remember the Rydells and Tarquinis of the world racing in it. It has got better in the last year or two though
