Lando is already surprising, which is cool to see.

Don't get VES, everyone keeps saying the 'once he matures' line. Damn, this is year 5. The guy has a rich boy attitude and everyone excuses it.

I'm sure Gasly has RIC words in his mind tonight after Red Bull helped him out on that qualifying effort.

Will root for Vettel, but really hoping to see Leclerc shine as well as Ricciardo in the Renault to mix it up. The midfield looks interesting with rookies looking sharp

TV Coverage starting at 11.30, if that can carry you until the start

All the pre-pre-race stuff is streamed live on YouTube via the offical F1 channel.

Reliability and roBottas going rogue are the only two things that may slow them down.

I predict Vettel jumps Bottas on the first lap.

George Russell is so mature and collected in his interviews, like a straight vet!

They are likely going to dominate this season. I don’t know that anyone has closed the gap to them.

Barring a weird race, Vettel or Verstappen splitting the Mercs is the only chance for a good race. Otherwise they'll just use Bottas to back up the field and let Hamilton walk away.

I feel bad for the people just getting into F1. This race is usually pretty boring. Not a great way to start a season.

I’m digging the new Haas livery, btw.

I wish F1 didn’t always start at ungodly hours

It is a great race for seeing the new drivers in new rides and how the teammates will get along.

You are right, not sure those nuances will be noticed. Hopefully passing will be easier.

I really like it too. I was afraid it might look too much like the Renault but I haven't gotten them confused yet.

I like Ferrari's matte red as well.

It's 5am in London. Their biggest fan base I believe.

Unfortunately Kubica's return is not quite the heartwarming story it should have been. Williams sucks so bad, and it looks like Kubica is not on the pace of his teammate. I hope it gets better for him over the season.

Race 1, Turn 1, who screws up?

Grojean of course is the easy bet.

Who else?

Kubica had no way of living up to his hype. He knows cars and racing, hopefully his knowledge gets poured into the next formula and brings Williams back.
