I gotta say that the sound of the cars is growing on me a little. Can't explain why; I think as the season wears on, we won't think a thing about it.

Ferrari have admitted on camera for bits produced in the US (NBCSN) that they thought 2 years would be plenty of time when they started development on the new power unit, and as of Melbourne, they could use another 2 years. The job Mercedes have done in light of power houses like Ferrari and Renault is nothing short of stunning. Even with a late safety car, even beating on each other at the end, they extended a 20+ second gap back to 3rd place.

I had been telling friends before Melbourne that Mercedes have done so many more miles of pre-season testing, they're probably not going to be touched this year. It looked an awful lot like there may be a repeat of the Brawn GP world championship. Nico was gifted a 25 point head start, so in reality, it should be his championship to lose. Either way, it was an amazing GP (even if it did get a bit processional for a while), and hopefully a sign of what is to come.

Re post from 'Mercedes got it right' thread

With the engine freeze few people would bet against someone in a Mercedes to become World Champion this year.
I hope we won't see a cluster fuck like the Championship going to the wire between the Mercedes team mates, only to see the double point idiocy to decide the winner.

We could see TV's being thrown out of windows (including mine).
