I’m not sure who has the fastest car, but here’s my prediction of the Aus GP grid:
11. Di Resta
22. Van De Garde
I’m not necessarily sure the Merc is the fastest car, but I think Hamilton and Rosberg are great qualifiers, and they both seem very comfortable with the car so will be able to push it right to the limit.
For me, Red Bull are struggling a little. It’s been said many times that RB don’t run any lighter than 70kg in testing. Even if this is the case, and we assume that Rosberg had about 10kg when he did his lap, 60kg only counts for 2 seconds of the 2.384 gap between the 2.
Mclaren have a car that they are struggling to get “just right” in terms of set-up etc. and unfortunately for them, they have 2 drivers that need it to be “just right”.
The great thing is that as I went throug the grid, I was constantly thinking “maybe they should be higher”, but I couldn’t find anyone who I thought would drop down in their place, showing just how close it will hopefully be this season!
