Fresh out the box

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

There’s al­ways a fris­son of ex­cite­ment when the new For­mula 1 cars emerge from the pit­lane for the first time.

Stand­ing be­tween the exit of Turn 2 and the ac­cel­er­a­tion zone at the right-han­der of Turn 3, you can quickly get a sense of which new cars han­dle the best.

From the very first morn­ing, it was clear the Mercedes (driven here by Valt­teri Bot­tas) and the Fer­rari looked the quick­est on-track. When we head to Mel­bourne for the first GP, I think it will be a con­tin­u­a­tion of last year for the two top teams.

From what I saw track­side, I think Red Bull and Mclaren have im­proved too, so it augers well for a com­pet­i­tive sea­son.
