    Can't stand Hamilton.  I don't like the new logo, but I don't hate it either.  It's just kinda, meh.

    Lots of cars look competitive in their own mini groups. Should be a close season all round

    I thought the race was very entertaining.  The live feed is much better. The Ferraris are fast! Didn't really care for the announcers.  I missed hearing Matchett with the technical breakdowns and having Will Buxton walk the grid before the race.

    I remember when Raikkonen first came up, couldn't stand the guy (mostly bc he drove for McLaren).  Now he's one of my favorite people on the damn planet.  He's like the Marshawn Lynch of F1.

    Sidenote: The halos fucking suck!!!

    Kimi is hilarious. So dry and uninterested in media. Kills me. Everyone is fast. The haas is basically a Ferrari force india and Renault are fast. Ricciardo was rapid. Plus both Mercedes have eveb more pace than ever. Should be a great season. Halos do suck shit. Utterly terrible

    While Merc are still miles ahead of everyone, the rest of the bunch are so much closer, great stuff!
    Let's see what happens in Bahrain where passing is more common.

    Mercedes seems to have one flaw- they can't run in dirty air. At all. Not that it has mattered much because they are usually up front. But Australia really showcased that weakness. Clearly Hamilton was faster than Vettel but he never even threatened to pass. 
    Bottas passed a bunch of guys but he could do nothing when he got to the Alonso train. With that power he should have blown by them. But the car understeers once the air gets dirty.

    Great race. That finish was actually exciting.
    Hope Ferrari's mechanic is okay.

    Great race indeed.  The cars looked great under the lights. Cars appear to be more competitive this year.

    Exciting race, I was surprised in several aspects.

    Also, Ferrari mechanic has undergone successful surgery, broken tib/fib.

    It was really nasty, a collection of errors all at once.

    Good start to the season, 3 teams in the hunt for victories (DNFs aside), that's more of what we want to see.

    The 1st half seemed we were in for a bore. I was bemoaning that the only passing was due to pit stops...then all hell broke loose!
    Verstappen needs to screw his head on.
    Ferrari was cruel to Kimi.
    Hamilton is struggling.
    And Red Bull is suddenly a contender.

    This race was fantastic. The season is now wide open. Can't wait.

    Edit: It was fun to watch Alonso chasing a Ferrari.

    So far the most exciting season in a long time. The end of race dramas continue. Great stuff. Let's hope it continues.
