    Nice one. Are you going to go to every session?
    Depends on work. Probably only the Qualification and the Race itself. Quite interested in the features running around the main even, too, but they haven't confirmed what they'll be yet. More importantly, I'm investigating techniques for smuggling drink into the venue. ;)

    The side pods and rear end are practically non-existent on that red bull now. Hopefully that means it's unreliable as well. Pretty boring launches so far, guess that's to be expected this year though

    New Mercedes has Blackberry as a sponsor on the side. That's Lewis's season fucked then ;)

    No team has done the double 4 times in a row have they? Hopefully it will stay that way!

    The merc looks quite nice to me, very short like a 2007/8 car. I don't know if the paint job or something but the Mercs always look a bit bloated!

    Even if the Merc is quick, can they develop it through the season? They've never managed to before even when Brawn won the title. All the teams need to work hard on next year's new regs so I bet some will give up on this year quicker than normal.

    Worrying lack of sponsors on a few cars. Sauber, Caterham and Marussia all looking particularly barren this year. Not surprising, but looking at the other cars it definitely looks like the sponsor pool got a lot shallower over the winter.

    Sauber looked quite bare into the first few races last season as I recall. That's not too surprising in first test then.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    A rocket ship with a dodgy fuel pump!! Surely there'll get the reliability nailed in time for Melbourne.

    So Marussia appear to have built an old Indycar and hired 2 rookies to drive it, one of whom is there because Daddy paid for his drive. Caterham have admitted their car is going to be crap. I do wonder why these 2 teams bother if they're not serious.

    They're serious about adding sponsorship money to their director's wage packets!

    So Lewis has put the Merc in the wall already then.

    Going to be difficult to instantly tell difference between Lewis and Nico what with their yellow caps.

    Probably wont make too much of a difference, they'll spend most of their time out of the car walking back to the pits. :D

    Haha! Wonder if they've got room in that Merc for a fold-up bike, to save on all that walking?
