    Vettle surprised me today with his move to Ferrari , I don't see that as a good move tbh , Ferrari have struggled for years and Alonso's supreme drives have made Ferrari look better than they really are ,kimi's no slouch but he's struggled this year .

    If I was Vettle I'd have stayed with Redbull the car is IMO a very good car it's just the power plant that let's it down ,just look at the races where out right engine performance hasn't been such a big factor ,Redbull have had wins , if Redbull had a Mercedes engine they'd be right up there .

    Daniel Riccardo has been my driver of the year , he's really stepped up to the challenge and is a tough cookie and has great race craft and never gives in , he's in the same mold as Alonso for his battling performance
    Im very much a die had fan RS and have been since I was 7 back in the days where Mansell and Patrese raced for Williams, Vettel was never going to stay with Newey taking a backseat and working on other things Red Bull didn't so much pay to keep him there, they paid to keep Newey away from other teams. Will Brawn make a come back? I personally think if he does it will be at...........Red Bull!! I think Horner may end up at McLaren but not just yet as there was too much hand bags over Peter Prodromou and Dan Fallows, Interestingly we sent a product to Dan Fallows recently which they were going to try out though Im not 100% sure of its legality though cant find anything otherwise in the technical Regs

    I'm happy for him , he's proved himself this season to be worthy of a seat in a competive car, he or mclaren have the option to retain his services for the 2016 season so there's a possibility of a two year deal for Button

    McLaren if they can deliver a competive car next year are going to be in a very strong position ,imo Alonso and Button are one of the strongest driver pairing on the grid , I'm already looking forward to next season

    Yep and I'm looking forward to it , the first test start today I think ,so it'll be interesting to read the reports , there's lots of things im going to be interested in reading , how good Is the McLaren / Honda package going to be ?
    Mercedes what have they done to developed they're engine further , Redbull are going to be strong I feel ,also how are Ferrari going to perform ? And Williams , I hope they have a really strong Season and can improve on last years great results

    i'm looking forward to all of the above plus,

    how long before ron dennis punches alonso ?
    how long before vettel needs a new chin section on his helmet to accomodate his pet lip ?
    how long before the two torro rosso new boys come to blows ?

    also looking forward to the racing and seeing what happens with the new driver/team/car penalty systems (i think that ones gonna get confusing)

    just been reading about the alonso testing crash on planet f1,
    glad he's ok but there is one question people seem to be asking, why would you sedate someone you suspect of having a concussion ?

    alonso himself is blameing the crash on wind, no more pre test vindaloo for him then ,

    anyone else get a bit bored watching the race on sunday ?
    i know i did, think they need to give more freedom for the engine development, ie:scrap the v6 and go back to v8 or v10 screamers ,
    felt sorry for honda though, engines turned right down and magnussons engine thinking the exhaust exit was now the crankcase ,
    and now some teams (mainly red bull ) are whingeing about the mercs being too quick/reliable/unbeatable etc etc,
    also red bull saying they might quit, again, think they should break contract with renault and buy an engine from someone who gives a crap,

    The first Gp was interesting , I thought , Ferrari look good as do the Williams , Honda have a lot of work to do ,I didn't think they'd be that far off the pace as they were , but at least Button finished ,that gives Honda and mclarean vital info on a number of parameters .

    I've read ,red bull are moaning , I didn't here them moaning when they were winning and everyone else was playing catch up , it's all about the tech guys pulling together and working as a team to up the performance , granted Renault aren't the best engine performance wise ,but they do actually know how to build a good engine .

    Alonso must be gutted seeing how well Ferrari are performing ,they've done a great job over the winter ,as when alsonso comes back he'll be scraping over a top ten finish if he's lucky

    when i said i was a bit bored above ^^^^^, i still watched the whole race,
    it just got a little bit like, well it's obvious who would win,
    i just hope the rest of the teams catch up quick then there will be some better racing,
    if honda get there engine sorted, (which i'm sure they will cos they are honda) then the mclaren will be a lot quicker than people expect,
    i agree that renault can build a good race engine, but it seems to be coming across as they want out, or don't like the v6 idea and they have chucked too much money at it already,
    i think the rulemasters should have allowed two years free engine development (on track) and then put the lockdowns in place after that,
    i really hope the next race is more of a race and the non merc teams all make a big step,
    i love f1 and always will, but the regulators seem to have muted it a bit over the last few years,
