Fresh out the box
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.
