Default 2010 F1 Qantas-Australian Grand Prix

Now since we have got over the season opener at Sakhir, we are now relieved to see top contenders still being on top from the last year.

Ferrari's fresh with their 1-2 victory.

Hamilton showing he's still good to be on the podium.

Vettel showing great pace.

Schumi not dissapointing with his debut

Force India now amongst the front-runners

The next race is just a dozen days away. What is that we can expect from the coming race at Australia-Melbourne also known as The Albert Park.

Current fastest lap on that circuit is held by Schumi, Hamilton won here in 2008.

What are the predictions and what are the changes we could see for the coming race.

FOTA has urged to make 2 PIT STOPS mandatory to spice up the race action. I think they should do something or else we have see more or less same F1 car train in Albert Park.

Cheers!

The Australian GP will see a slight change in the diffuser department of at least some of the cars. According to FIA some of the teams have read too much into the regulations and decided to add a separate layer of opening to the diffuser exploiting the fact that regulations allow them to have an opening for the engine starter... One of those teams is mclaren... anyone know who are the others?? Although not a major change this will still have an adverse effect on those cars for sure.. nevertheless it will be interesting to see what happens....

Apparently, the weather forecast predicts rain for the GP. If Bahrain was an indicator of excitement levels of F1, this is the best news of the week for me.

It seems the Virgin team are going to bring in a larger fuel tank as the current one is not sufficient enough to complete the entire race distance.

The Virgin team will bring out an all new chassis and has asked the FIA to crash test its chassis. The new chassis will debut during the 5th race of the season.
