    2023 - Race 3 Australia

    I have enjoyed the first 2 Jeddah races, but this year Jeddah was not as interesting (midfield was the most interesting part). Meanwhile, I have never found Australia to be that exciting. So maybe this year will be different.

    Questions I see are:

    1. Is there a potential Red Bull reliability issue?

    2. Can Perez, coming of this victory really challenge Max? Rosberg/Hamilton battle was set by Hamilton having bad luck with reliability issues.

    3. Feel like there is Perez/Verstappen conflict brewing - it could get spicy if Perez can challenge.

    4. Can Ferrari bounce back? Or are they only capable of battling for 2nd or 3rd?

    5. Russell says "We know we’ve got some more performance in the locker, in some races to come" - will Australia be one of those races?

    Perez makes a mistake in Q1 - out.

    Alonso continues to look good.
    Hulkenburg pulls out a good lap to get to Q3

    Something is going on with RBR and Checo. This seems very dubious in terms if the car setup. Typical Horner/red bull shenanigans. Perez complained in Q3 and they did nothing. Perez was great in Jeddah and suddenly he cant find the brakepoints???
