Australian Grand Prix: Race Day thoughts
Race day in Australia always throws up something different. Rain, hail or shine, that first corner often sees a huge amount of carnage.
The drivers are often rusty early in the season; just take a look at how lacklustre Vettel has been so far this weekend. Anything is possible.
Will Ferrari make an impact today? No. Only if the top 10 crash at the first corner and somehow they aren’t involved. It’s clear to see that they are down in the dumps.
Continuing on from yesterday’s chat about Red Bull, Christian Horner in an interview with Channel Ten stated that Webber had a problem with KERS costing him 0.4 of a second.
Webber has been terribly unlucky with this problem over the past couple of years, and yesterday it cost him potentially third spot on the grid.
McLaren and Mercedes, by contrast, are in pristine condition so far. No problems, no worries.
Mercedes though will be definitely be somewhat unhappy with Rosberg’s poor qualifying, he made a mistake on his final flying lap and missed out on a chance to relegate a Red Bull to the fourth row of the grid.
Roman Grosjean was the surprise of qualifying, but l doubt he will be able to keep up his race pace to stay there for a sustained period of time.
He may though play a big part for both the McLaren’s if he can hold up the Mercedes and Red Bull’s behind them.
Unfortunately for HRT, they have been made ineligible to race today due to finishing outside the 107% rule.
The talking stops and the business starts. McLaren’s look quick, but surely you can’t write off the Aussie!
