    Ferrari scratching their heads! Besides Verstappen being close looks rather drab. The design changes appear to have not made a blind bit of difference for overtaking purposes. Hopefully just the Australian track dynamics at play....

    You stated its the same old story!

    Race looked the complete opposite, yes I agree Merc were way out front but a Honda had genuine pace and challenged a Ferrari and the battle in the mid field is seriously close. So its not the same story at all!

    Oops sorry forgot on this forum opinions aren't allowed. Was there not a major design change to enable easier overtaking trumpeted by Ross Brawn? I thought it was a fairly boring race. A positive was Max. Although he only passed Vettel because the Ferrari was in trouble at that point and 2 seconds a lap slower. Max was clearly faster than Lewis but couldn't pass him with tyres 10 laps younger. It doesn't bode well unfortunately.

    In my opinion it was the nature of the track(street circuit) that contributed most to the lack of overtaking, more overtaking than last year ,and the cars seemed to me to be following each other more closely in the mid pack , I personally believe the new aero package is working and will show its true colours in the next race.

    I think the writing is on the wall in regards to the speed differential between Vettel and Leclerc, Pre-season Ferrari state they will be putting Vettel first and then this race he was told to not challenge Vettel. I think Vettel will not be able to challenge for the title this year as he will be too busy focusing on how quick his team mate is. Yes Leclerc is in-experienced and will make silly mistakes like he did in Australia but I think he will push Vettel all the way and be nipping at his heels.

    The track definitely doesn't aid overtaking so we'll have to wait and see how the wing changes
    have affected this.

    The grid might have closed up but other than that its the same story, Merc out in front with Ferrari and Red Bull
    next up and the rest fighting for what ever's left, the mid pack order might change around a bit but thats about
    it

    Definitely good news the Honda has pace and finished the race

    Because of a lack of anything else to moan about
