  1. Really happy to see Lewis up there, really wasn’t expecting it! :)
    Being a mclaren fan so so many years its staring to get painful to watch now.. Looks like Mercedes pre season shake up is what they needed.. Take note mclaren! :/

  2. ….if Hamilton would have been in Mclaren today, he would have been 3rd anyway

    1. @nomore Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? Maybe not 3rd but possibly higher than 10th

  3. Vettel was going quicker on his last lap before he came in. I wonder how demoralizing that would have been.

    1. I would have enjoyed finding out. :-)

      1. You delight in the anguish of thousands of Hamilton fans, don’t you?

        1. Hamilton fans are happy no matter. They thought he would be trying to get into Q3 this year and his on the second row.
          Probably bad for Alonso fans really. They are the ones with hopes for championship.

  4. I personally will wait 3-4 races and then make a pecking order of the cars…you can call me crazy but Red Bull in my personal opinion will not win a championship this year.

    p.s i bookmark this page and reread in november…and hope with a big smile in my face

      you can call me crazy

      You’re crazy. Lol

  5. So RedBull lock the front row again. But Ferrari and Merc have started strong for a change and Lotus seems to be there too. We haven’t found the race pace of the teams and the tire wear.

    Too early to rule out a RB whitewash for the season and particularly considering Aussie circuit isn’t the best in terms of revealing what is the running order of the teams in terms of performance.
    And then there is in season development :)

    If RB still manage to win both championships, well done to them; then we conclude that the others have not done a good job this year.

  6. rule out rule this

  7. ” Sebastian gets p 1 ”

    Oh no , it’s Happened agaaain :( :( :( .But the surprise for me is that Lewis is 3rd :) . But Lewis , I hope, doesn’t crash . I really wan’t webber to win this one :)

  8. The Red Bull runaway predictors could very well be correct, or not. Glad the races need to be run to find out who really wins and loses. This particular qualifying session was run in quite mixed conditions making it difficult to come to terribly reliable predictions in any direction. Thank goodness! I have my favorites, but I mostly hope for close races all season long.
