      Agree with you guys on Renault and very intrigued to see how they get on with Ricciardo in the seat.

      No better pilot to snatch any opportunity that presents itself.

      Indeed.

      I still have a feeling Red Bull will be fine with the Honda but not sure they'll close the gap enough to really compete for the championship.

      Being fine won't be enough if Renault have made a significant step,
      especially as Renault arguably have a stronger driver line up.

      This new mob are just looking to ring as much money out of F1 regardless of who they upset or the History of the Sport.
      Can you even imagine dropping the British GP.
      REally hoping Danny Ric gets ahead of RB and his old Pal Max. Can McLaren and Williams do anything this year I hope so

      Much better options out there for the money that goes into it.
      Le Mans and Moto GP we're cheaper and no lesser product.

      I am a massive Le Mans fan and if F1 don't get their act together they could lose a lot of good will around the world and in F1 history does count for a lot.

      They've already lost ground to Moto GP and will lose ground to the likes of Le Mans & Formula E.
      Purists will easily get their fix from Moto GP & Le Mans.
      Those who want a modern take might be drawn to Formula E.
      Formula 1 seems caught between two stools.

      Le Mans are already trying to  make it more competitive by changing the Prototype Cars . The on board Cameras are so much better

      Thank f**k it doesn't have that little knob sticking out the end of its nose. Not much of a 'new' livery though. Crikey - given the way Mercedes were teasing its fans the last week or two you'd have thought it was going to be a complete overhaul. Nothing of the sort.

      So much for the black camo car.
      Reckoned that was a wind up when they had the wheels and all done.
      Tidier than last season's, but then just about every launch has been tidied up versions of last year's,
      With the exception of HAAS and Williams, who have new main sponsors.

      One of my favourites. Although I'm biased when it comes to yellow and blue race cars.

      Only Ferrari left now.

      The Alfa Romeo testing livery, if that's what it is, was lush.

      Well, as F1 is now fully on PPV apart from the British GP, sadly I don't really care. I may watch the highlights.

      But seriously, I think this will depend on who can bend the rules long enough before getting caught. Mercedes seem to be very good at this, and catching others.

      Internet streaming for me.

      The thought of paying £40 a month for Sky (just to watch 2 races, the quality of which is never guaranteed in f1) is a desperate situation. It's sad to see people like Martin Brundle milking it on Sky now and promoting their grubby work all for a few hundred thousand viewers when back in the day he was broadcasting to millions upon millions of us is sad.

      It arguably stops becoming a mainstream sport just like Sky did for cricket.

      Mercedes bent the rules long enough last season to leap frog Ferrari,
      and then the pressure on Ferrari did the rest.

      I believe that 3 live races per season have to be made available on their non ppv channels. 1 of them will probably be their home race, because it's also available on another network.

      These days you get comprehensive coverage of every race weekend of the season, and live interactive services that save you having to listen to Croft. For the next 2 weeks, they cover every test live. Before they arrived, you would get the qualifying session and the race live, with commercial breaks missing the key moments, and then off air asap. There would be no coverage of practice sessions, testing, or anything else. People complain about having to pay a bit for it, but they get what they pay for.

      We got everything free (all practice sessions, quali, race) on the BBC with no ad breaks.

      You're quite frankly an idiot if you're paying that money for 20 odd races a year.

      Except you're not paying it for just 20 odd races a year. You're getting F1 coverage every day of the year, and all the support races/categories live, (along with all the other sports they cover) That's how Leclerc and Norris and Russell to name a few, got their foot into F1. It's thorough and comprehensive coverage, and compared to what was available before they got the rights, it's the difference between night and day.

      That may well be but some of us simply can't justify the extra cost mate even if you get that comprehensive coverage.

      I love F1 and motorsport in general but simply cannot justify paying to watch it with all the other expenses we have in the house.

      If there’s one word McLaren shouldn’t be using, it’s “Contender”, I’m expecting another pathetic season from them, only difference now is that they won’t have Alonso getting them semi respectable finishes.

      Yea, if that car hasn't improved massively on last year McLaren are going to struggle I feel.
