First car designs for the 2015 season are starting to come out.

Hopefully a little more competitive than last season - as good as the Mercedes battle was.

Really hope Williams can maintain there form from last season as I really liked Bottas and he is definitely destined for better things.

Tempted to book and go out to Spa for the GP too - done Silverstone a few times but really want to go to Belgium for the race as it is usually a cracker.

Interesting from an engineering point of view the big difference on the noses of those two cars.

Don't think we'll see the best of McLaren till the 2016 season onwards.

Will be interesting to see how the Mclaren gets along at the first test and hopefully see Williams and Red Bull close the gap to the Mercs.

Knew Mclaren would struggle but didn't think they'd be this bad.

Struggling to get excited for this season considering how wank the Mclaren car is, and how far ahead Mercedes are yet again.

Yeah, McLaren's are really disappointing.

Also the whole farce surrounding Sauber. Very disappointed that Jolyon Palmer didn't get a ride in the off-season as well.

Sounded like utter drudgery and only 11 cars finished in any case.

Could be a long season.

Apart form Sauber's impressive showing not much to write home about.

Seemingly no German GP this season either, Nurburgring pulled out and Hockenheim isn't willing to do it two years on the bounce because of the loss they'd make. Such a shame losing these races, they reckon Monza will be gone next year as well. Not about tradition anymore, all about £££, but we all knew that anyway sadly.

Shame all the proper race tracks are gone and being replaced by corporate hubs in the middle of nowhere because of the £££ - Silverstone, Spa and Monza are the best races on the calender yet the ones now under threat if rumours are to be believed

Mercedes maybe not getting their own way. Strong showing from Ferrari and the rookies.

Great drive by Vettel to bring that home. Certainly wasn't expecting that.

I managed to see second half of Malaysian GP and faith restored a little in F1, Brilliant drive by Vettel in the Ferrari !

Mercedes certainly cocked Hamilton up with Tyre strategy but oh well great to see a different team on top of podium :)

Ferrari is back!!!!! Fuck yeah. Vettel having a dream run with Ferrari. Good to see him back after a bad phase.

Was tired of seeing Hamilton win every race. Good change, actually great change since I'm a Ferrari fan.

Not a big change but it's is giving me hope that the Mercs may be challenged and we'll have two teams battling up front.

Rosberg is fast becoming one of the most dislikable, whiney sportsmen going.

Just a bit. If Hamilton was driving so slow, why didn't he try and fucking overtake him?

Exactly. He had no qualms trying to overtake him in Budapest last year when he could have avoided contact but popped his tyre.

Petulant wanker.

Brilliant press conference after race, Hamilton & Vettel trying hard not to laugh with Rosberg sulking like a baby haha

If Hamilton was so slow and holding you up Rosberg then why not make a move to overtake, Rosberg & Red Bull would be a dream combination at moment !
