The cars are starting to be revealed now so time for the new seasons thread. I'll update this posy each time I get new pictures. Don't be surprised if you can't really tell the difference between this and last years cars, with the potential reg changes for 2017 I highly doubt this year will have any major advancement on the aero side until the teams know where they are going to go next season.

I did not watch much as I was knackered but there were a few crashes last night. Hamilton looks good but it was a rain affected second practice so might not mean much. I like some of this years cars and i am looking forward to the race the Australian is one of my favourites.

Can some one help bit confused, in the F1 planet it states Haryarto? Has been given a three place grid penalty for being in the wrong for the crash. I get this but then states he also has to penalty points what are these? Is this just the lollipop 10 second penalty or are we running a points scheme now?

It came in, I think, after Grosjean's first stint in F1 where he was pretty crash happy and people felt that arbitrarily banning someone wasn't a great system and a points system meant repeat offenders would be punished but a single mistake wouldn't in itself cause a ban inmost cases.

All ifs and buts I know, but if Ferrari matched Rosberg's strategy after the red flag, I am confident Nico would have had the pace to beat Vettel. The tactical error probably only cost them second to Lewis. The Merc is still at least a couple of tenths faster when all is equal, minimum. Their botchy start has made it look like the Ferrari's are closer to them than they actually are, to my eye.

 

Alonso's crash was seriously scary. The worst I've seen for a while. The fact he was able to just slip out and walk away with little more than being winded was immense. Huge credit to the way these cars are designed.

 

My man Roman taking points on the Haas debut was wonderful to see too. A bit fortunate that the strategy worked out, but still, outstanding stuff. I'm pleased they are able to compete with the midfield on pure pace as it is shows that new teams can get somewhere if they do it right.

Particularly it validates the whole process of how they got the car together. fingers crossed this means in future any new starter will get to pick up bits of kit from an established team and be actually able to run relative to the field from near enough day 1. I think we didn't learn as much as we think we learned in this race, bahrain will be interesting...
