    why are people doubting red bull over 1 lap? it’s obvious that vettel will be on pole. No matter how happy people are the red bull are suffering atm, it’s typical that come Q3, the red bull will be the car to beat.

    Vettel on pole depends on his car running more than 1 lap. Let’s see if Barhein is like Q3 (I mean, Red Bull storming again). Remember last year? Mercedes and Ferrar showing the best pace, then Saturday Q3 comes and Vettel was on pole, 90% of the times.

    Its far too early to make any sensible predictions, but given the jerez test, is no surprise people are doubting Red Bull. I think due to the mammoth success they have had, people cant comprehend the fact that they may not be the team to beat this season, a teams dominance doesn’t last forever,(Ferrari 00-04. Williams in the 90′s), having said all that, It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if come Q3 in Melbourne, Red Bull lock out the front row!

    Maybe because in 2013 Mercedes was generally faster than Red Bull over one lap until the summer break (when they gave up on the WO4 to focus on the WO5). I don’t think Vettel will be on pole in Melbourne, but in my prediction, I put him 3rd behind Hamilton and Rosberg.

    1.Rosberg – Mercedes will be very quick.
    2.Hamilton – A front row lockout for Mercedes.
    3.Vettel – No surprise there!
    4.Alonso – Up there as usual ,though his quali pace has improved.
    5.Magnussen – A good result for the Woking team!
    6.Ricciardo – RBR haven’t lost much pace.
    7.Grosjean – Lotus are in a similar position to 2013.
    8.Raikkonen – This poor quali does no justice to his race pace.
    9.Massa – Williams have nice pace,it seems.
    10.Button – No where near KevMag’s pace
    11.Hulkenberg
    12.Bottas
    13.Perez
    14.Sutil
    15.Vergne
    16.Maldonado – really struggled

    A few questions:
    Why are people putting Williams so high up?We know that they have good expectations and that they have good pace in Jerez.But come Melbourne and RBR will have a perfectly good, quick car and Lotus and Sauber are likely to be quick as are Force India.As for Marussia and Caterham, who knows wether they will be quick or not?

    Also, people are putting Mclaren very high aswell and after one test
    we can’t tell anything!

    And no-one has put Caterham or Marussia anywhere except last.I say that may be wrong, who knows?I do admit that I put them last aswell but I could well be wrong.

    2.Rosberg
    3.Vettel-Vettel hasn’t lost much in terms of race or quali pace

    6.Ricciardo-A lot quicker than many predicted
    7.Grosjean
    8.Magnussen
    9.Perez
    10.Massa-Beat Pastor by less than a tenth to make Q3

    11.Maldonado-Just missed out on Q3
    12.Bottas
    13.Alonso-A very poor quali puts him out in Q2
    14.Bianchi-Marussia have a surprising pace at Melbourne
    15.Sutil
    16.Gutierrez

    17.Chilton-This position proves how far Marussia have moved on
    18.Vergne
    19.Hulkenberg-His ERS system failed, allowing him to do 1 lap only :(
    20.Kobayashi-Caterham’s box front proved a bad design
    21.Kvyat
    22.Ericsson
