Welcome to a new series on my channel called Preview and Predictions, in this series I will be previewing and giving my predictions for the upcoming F1 race, I also want to hear your predictions down below in the comments so feel free to leave a comment below.

So today I will be previewing the Australian Grand Prix, this is the first race of the F1 2016 season meaning it will be the first time we will really get to see how the cars perform, testing couldn’t tell us too much except Mercedes are in as dominant of a position as they have been for the last couple of years, they have an ultra reliable car and we haven’t seen its full pace yet and from what we have seen so far, when they do unleash it fully the car will be scary quick. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will surely be the two drivers to beat.

Behind them is Ferrari, Ferrari have made a large number of changes to their car which both Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen like however I don’t believe they have done enough yet to beat the two Mercedes cars. Next up is Williams and Red Bull, for these two it is difficult to tell where they will be, Bottas, Massa, Ricciardo and Kvyat will likely be battling all season long for the spot of best of the rest but from testing it is almost impossible to tell who will be where because neither team has really pushed the car to the edge.

Force India could be a huge underdog in this race, the car is looking great and with Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez behind the wheel, could see score a top 5 finish in this race and maybe even go one better, if any team will gain out of the new tyre rule it will be Force India and especially Sergio Perez.
