    I can't wait! Seems like forever waiting for Formula 1 to return, and now it's finally here. Here's hoping for another great season!

    I hope the excitement continues where the 2012 season ended. Don't like the track a lot but can't wait to hear the engines again.

    Bring it on!

    decisions decisions, do i go with my usual approach of watching everything LIVE... but with a Crappy Stream quality, or do i wait for the highlights on BBC1 7 hours later? which means i would have to avoid the internet for that period of time! lol

    Weather forecasts suggest a wet qualifying session, and cloudy days for practice and the race. Also much cooler tempetratures than normal for this time of the year in Melbourne. I wonder how this will affect the tyres and their wear?

    The quality of the tires is still a mystery so its indeed very interesting to see what is going to happen.

    Some rain would be nice.

    I havent heard much on the tyres this year, are they different again then? Hopefully shorter lifetime so more stops :D

    I watched the winter testing. They are apparently shorter life. They said 4-5 stops a race at an estimate. However most likely 2-4. Bare in mind it was predicted a 4-5 pit stop race in Australia last year and I think some people where still one stopping. The big change is that I think its the Mediums and Super Softs this year at Australia, instead of the Mediums and the Softs.

    "Pitlane speed limits 60km/h in practice; 100km/h in qualifying and race"

    Isn't 60km/h throughout the weekend?

    Nah, the drivers would crap themselves out of anxiety, if they had to roll through the pitlane at 60 km/h during the race :D

    Man what a short off season. Seems like the last season just ended! Not that I'm complaining. I'm just glad I get the NBC Sports network.
