However don't forget RB8's race pace is not that bad as we seen in Melbourne.
Plus he got a free choice of tire, and open strategy decision. He might be somewhere in the points, perhaps around P4 or P5 if they play their cards right and no other drama.
Great job for Mercedes to have a front row lockout!!! This season so far there's nothing but Mercedes engine on pole and front row lock out!!!
The only worry is now the race pace of Mercedes, in race trim, they are less competitive than McLaren, and Red Bull. So tonight is going to be very interesting!!!
