F1 2018

Well it needs to be done, (for all you petrol heads out there)...As the new race season begins in Australia this weekend, I thought it would be apt, to get this thread underway.

This is my take on it.... From what I've heard / read, the media think it will be a big Hamilton v Vettel affair to be the first between them to grab a 5th world title. And closer than ever for the last few years.

Apparently, Mercedes has improved a little in terms of performance from last season, Ferrari has improved the most overall from all the teams, and sound like current title favourites, but Red bull can out beat the both of them on the corners, but still lacks overall straight line speed.

Being British, I would love to see us beat "Vettel the moody Kraut" to the title, but failing that, I would love for Ricciardo & Verstappen to win also. I think they make the most exciting & best double act in F1 for a long time.

BTW... I'm not happy with the introduction of the "Halo", yeah yeah, health and safety and all... but blah blah blah... takes away the risk. Can you imagine if the WBA, WBC, IBF etc.... pro heavyweights were forced to wear head gear on health & safety grounds.
