    F1 - a whole new season starts now....

    and here is a great little video that Red Bull spent a fortune on to help us understand the new cars...

    I'm not sure that Red Bull understands the new cars yet!

    I'm not sure any of us do to be honest, and sadly I'm more interested to watch it as a fiasco than as a race, but it's what's happening now, so why not!

    Awesome race. Much more interesting than most and great to see all the new blood. Cars sure sound different!

    great video, does anyone know how the lap times compare, this year and last?

    I really enjoyed it too. But the sound of the cars is just not as good! I agree that some new blood makes it interesting.

    The race was ok, it was nice to see Magnussen and Botteras do so well, but Ricardo's disqualification at midnight was just pathetic. This is what the Aussi press said -

    "It might not have been the day formula one died, but on Sunday at an Australian Grand Prix that was lacklustre by most measures, it began what could be a terminal illness," wrote Mark Fogerty in the Age. "The sound of the cars was dreadful, the racing was somnolent and the spectacle completely underwhelming. F1 authorities, along with the teams, have to urgently address the failings of the radical new regulations that have neutered much of the cars' traditional visceral appeal."

    What? I didn't catch the disqualification. What was the reason for his DQ? The Force India principal lamented the loss of the sound of F1 during one of the practice sessions. Hard to disagree.

    Yes, but it's all team mate against team mate, the cars are all over the map.
