    I'm perched above the McLaren pit for today's race. Seems like a great spot

    Nice Chappy!!

    Hopefully Vettel’s race pace will be good. Don’t want to watch a Hamilton procession.

    Also be interesting to see how Danny Ric goes in the Renault.

    Hope you had a great day - one of my brothers lived at Albert Park for about five years but we stupidly never got around to visiting at F1 time. Still regret that.

    Living the dream chappy! I went on Friday and Sunday just walking around in the pleb section (general admin). Fantastic event. I only wish they had more raised grass hills trackside and more screens.

    As for the race, I really hope this is the start of a massive season for Bottas. When he wanted to pit late in the race to try to secure his fastest lap and an extra point I think it sent a strong message he's going to be pretty ruthless in his hunt for the championship this season.

    Is it just me or is the Renault F1 team really underachieving this year compared to last year??

    Definitely not living up to expectations. Unreliability early now leaves them behind the 8 ball for the rest of the season. The lack of pace just compounds the problem.

    Supposedly the Renault F1 team running on the same budget as Torro Rossi and are around $150m euros behind Mercedes etc....

    https://www.news.com.au/sport/motors...a516b3a9b4b622

    Abiteboul claimed Renault were operating on a smaller budget than their midfield rivals including McLaren.

    “(McLaren has) quite a lot more,” he said.

    “Do you know how much we spend here? We operate with the budget of Toro Rosso and we do not believe that putting more money makes the difference.

    “Instead of wasting a lot of resources, we can take a look at McLaren because I know their numbers and I can tell you they have a few hundred people more than us. How far are they from us? Makes sense? Not for now.

    “And we will never have the (extra) 150m euros that we need to be like Mercedes because it does not make any sense. It does not correspond to the value of Formula 1 for us.”

    Vale Niki Lauda, the true greatest comeback of them all.

    If you are a F1 fan, watch the James Hunt movie 'Rush'
