Let's hope so! Let's hope Red Bull don't wipe the floor again. Although, if they deserve it (and they are sponsored by Infiniti...)

Most of the teams are talking a good fight thus far, but then again they usually do. No matter how much a team deserves it, I sincerely hope no-one runs away with it, as it will be nice to see both titles undecided until the last race or two.

It is good though to see Raikkonen back. If nothing else, I do hope he puts the wind up a few of the front runners from the last few years. :lol:

Well said Michael. I just heard Benson (great name!) was fastest in free practice with Lewis 2nd Schumacher 3rd. Let's hope that's not as premature as it sounds!

:lol:

I'm just hoping there's a test driver by the name of Hedges who's bubbling under at the moment, and will end up on Benson's coat tails later in the season. :D

McLaren look great for a 1-2 finish! :#1: :#2: The Lotus team look promising too and if it weren't for a team cockup I reckon Kimi would have been up there too. But where oh where are the Ferrari's?!

It was good to see that qualifying became a pick any one from ten, rather than the guarantee of the last year or so. The potential for surprise and upset is a great thing, and hopefully means this season could be more exciting and varied than any season for years.

McLaren must be delighted that they're the only one of the top three teams to replicate anything like their previous form today. It was good to see Lotus/Renault, Mercedes, and Williams featuring strongly in the top ten for once.

I bet Kimi said a few more words behind closed doors to his team after their timing c**k-up than he said to the press. :lol:

This year's cars are officially ugly though. The front height of the cars regulations are a joke!

I'll take that back! Great work by Alonso! Great work by McLaren as well. Really enjoyed watching Raikkonen and Kobayashi right through the race. Real shame for Williams and Maldanado too. Roll on Malaysia! :)

What a great start to the season. It's good to see Williams improving.

So how long will it be before we have an Infiniti team with a Renault engine?...

Well there was me thinking that Ferrari would be nowhere for the first few races of the season and wouldn't you know it Alonso sits atop the table! That shows what I know about F1! Well done to Alonso winning in difficult conditions but maximum respect to Sergio Perez...an inspired drive and if it weren't for that slight slip towards the end I'm sure he would have been on the top step of the podium!

Great start to the season with four teams represented in the top five...I hope it continues like this all season! :)

Great race! It was interesting to see the different pace of each team in those conditions. Perez must be a very happy chappy!
