    It still looks like the Mercedes is going to be the favourite. They have a very strong driver lineup and Hamilton is still the man to beats.

    Hopefully it will be a close season with the new regs.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same - the Mercedes are still dominant. Hopefully Ferrari can make this season interesting. I really would like to see a Hamilton and Vettel battle for the championship.

    Shame the race was so dull really, it had very little overtaking and even if the result aren't quite as predictable it won't keep the fans engaged without a decent bit of on track action.

    Should be a good race this weekend. I always like the Canadian GP. The Ferrari's look good again in practice.

    If they carry on the dominance from Monaco then Mercedes are really going to start shitting bricks. If Ferrari can out power them then there isn;t really much car wise they've got to play with given that it's just an evolution on the theme of the last 3 years.

    I wonder if Vettel will get extra punishment at the FIA meeting this week? His behaviour last week was really stupid. Jean Todt is not a fan.

    It is quite funny that two grown men are still banging on about it. I just loved the fact that another racer thought that giving afters was great and now wonders if everyone should just drive into the other car if they had a problem. Could be an expensive lesson. I hope the next race is as eventful. Vettel is so unapologetic it's untrue.

    Looks like Ferrari is going to dominate Hungary and so it will be damage limitation for Hamilton and Mercedes this weekend.
