We're back into a new season!
A few months ago we are moaning about the lost of V8 engines. But the new, more advanced V6 are quite impressive. The sounds arn't that bad either!

Sounds like the Mercedes powered teams have a bit of reliability advantage at the moment. We will see how the Renault teams catch up throughout the season.

It's a clean slate, I'm also excited for this season. We really have no idea what to expect.

SO EXCITED FOR THIS YEAR!!!

There is so many questions up in the air right now with the new cars. There is no way the series will be dominated by one team this year.

Rumors have it that ALL cars have a high probability of failure, so no one will actually finish the race. It's going to be interesting for sure.

I think F1 successfully injected some more excitement into this season. I was doubtful about the move to V6 turbo but so far I'm liking the results. I can't wait to see what happens in the first race!
