    Be happy , Mia .
    The red car looks well planted while the Merc seems a bit more nervous , so the race may be different .
    And , your Kimi said he made a few mistakes and thinks there's more speed in that car than a ninth place shows , so you could see a good result from him as well .
    Cross your fingers and your toes .

    We have to see what Ferrari has to offer before we can begin to sense where the potential to win the title lies. I think Ferrari has not had the opportunity to show their raw pace yet. Bahrain or China may spice things up and introduce a new twist to this interesting start of the season.

    I'm not sure atm. But I can safely say that whoever Nitrodaze thinks will win the title is not going to. He's never correct with his interpretations and judgements.

    I've looked up the championship standings after each race. I know after how many races Vettel led the championship and by how much.

    I think it's fair to say that you don't know what you're talking about. Ferrari haven't been fearsome since 2004.

    This is all within the same post!

    Do you pay attention to what's going on?

    If MB have consistently out performed Ferrari in the development battle through each season of the hybrid era, then that means MB have had the best car throughout the hybrid era!

    He isn't. It's Hamilton.

    It feels weird and stupid because MB is the best car. A fact you're trying to convince yourself otherwise.

    1. firmly established his dominance over Bottas
    lol

    Australia was probably the first race since Canada the team support has been even and not in favour of Hamilton.

    I am surprised you have anything to say about anything other than Ricciado and Australia. Bravo, strange things happen everyday lol.
