There have been splashes of it before - the '92 Brabham and the '89 Onyx spring to mind.

Please enter 2 teams. We need 10 teams to earn trophies!

I will start and sticky a Fantasy F1 League :D

Choose wisely - Ferrari and Mercedes are looking like the top dogs followed by Williams and RedBull.
McLaren are somewhere back in 87th place out of the 10 teams entered into F1 this season :lol:
Is it the want to win option like last year?

The budget is mega tight

First test with the new livery - it's so fast, it made the background disappear:

Be interesting this year to see if mclaren sack off the Honda engine. Especially if they get Mercedes power units again.

Looks like it could be a Mercedes versus Ferrari fight this year. That might be good. It also looks like it could be Hamilton versus Vettel this year. They have locked horns a few times in the past(in the lower formulas - I think) and most memorably at the first of the Austin Grand Prix a few years back(when they both in different teams). Hopefully, we could have an interesting battle.

Got set my alarm for an early F1 start in Oz. See you all there.

Yawn. Very few overtakes and the result decided in the pits.

Race was boring (fell asleep between laps 10-20!) but I liked the final result. Nice to see a Ferrari win with genuine pace so hopefully they can keep the challenge up. Bottas and Raikkonen both (predictably) played second fiddle.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

It's back to the mid 1990s! :lol: Yeah, it is a concern - with these new regulations, it does seem that it's very difficult to follow other cars and overtake. Ross Brawn has got his work cut.

Elsewhere - McLaren give the Honda the chop and go get a Mercedes engine - PLEASE! It's an embarrassment. You're a world class team who have won championships and now the best you can hope for is 12th for a few seconds before the engine blows up! Grrrrr! :roll:

We are only a matter of hours away from 1st practice in China!

Are Ferrari going to be on the Merc pace on this wide, fast power circuit? Word has it that McLaren will be completely dire here - even worse than in Australia! Will RedBull get some much needed oomph from that Renault engine? AND more importantly, where will team Tampon come in their Pink speed flaps? :lol:

Oh! Don't forget your predictions in the Fantasy league.
