Right then I'll get it started shall I!

Anyone watch F1?

2017, wider tyres, big fins, insanely expensive to go to... discuss!

With preseason gearing up in Barcelona it's going to interesting to see if the best of the rest from last year have engineered themselves into a good position against Mercedes, no Ham/Ros fights this year so that will be a big miss as I enjoyed those two trying to act like team mates and friends. I have a sneaking suspicion Red Bull will be close as it's a 'aero' season this one and RB always seem to do well in this respect, Verstappen for champion? Maybe, it would be great to see him go head to head with Lewis in anything like a similar car.

Yes I'll be taking a keen interest, we have some clients that are sponsors of Mercedes going to testing in Barcelona on Tuesday. Nice work if you can get it. Hope it's a good season, I think it will be and I also like Verstappen.

Times and laps competed
Posted at12:16


1. Hamilton, Mercedes 1:20.983 (66 laps) Supersoft

2. Raikkönen, Ferrari 1:22.831 (47) Medium

3. Ocon, Force India 1:23.045 (27) Soft

4. Magnussen, Haas 1:23.200 (36) Soft

5. Verstappen, Red Bull 1:23.212 (31) Soft

6. Kvyat, Toro Rosso 1:25.012 (44) Medium

7. Stroll, Williams 1:26.040 (12) Medium

8. Vandoorne, McLaren 1:26.201 (29) Soft

9. Giovinazzi, Sauber 1:33.741 (5) Medium

10. Palmer, Renault no time (1)

Ferrari 2 seconds down BUT only on the Medium so that's very interesting indeed, hoping this all points to closer racing but can see Mercedes just turning up the wick and zooming off.

So at 6am tomorrow we see the first shots of the 2017 season fire in anger, on the face of it Mercedes look (again) to be a class above the rest but we will see, really looking forward to this season and hoping for some close racing.

Don't think there was much bluffing today and Hamilton was 0.5 secs quicker.....everyone is already playing catch up.

Get into Moto gp at least they fall off
Yeah I watched a lot of that a few years ago, especially when Stoner was the only bloke who could ride that Ducati and still is and Rossi vs Pedrosa vs Lorenzo before Marquez came along and destroyed all of them.

Prefer WSB and BSB now...and the road racing over yoour way and IOM, bit more real.

I think you might end up with a London/Manchester/Birmingham Grand Prix, which would be spectacular and make the logistics for spectators, guests and everyone else involved, so massively easier than an old airfield in Northamptonshire. The streets and setting in London would make for a brilliant occasion, and are far more suitable than Monaco or Azerbaijan.
