@MercedesAMGF1: Update on @LewisHamilton's car.. An oil pressure alarm led to a precautionary engine shutdown. Cause to be investigated when car returns.

Good thing it's not very serious.

Red Bull seems a little bit more confident, their lap times look OK and reliability looks fine too.
A craven can be as brave as any man, when there is nothing to fear. And we all do our duty, when there is no cost to it. How easy it seems then, to walk the path of honor.

Lots of laps for Red Bull, decent long run pace, both of them in top 6, have they solved their problems?

Lotus looks bad. Grosjean all over the place.

Nice to know Red Bull is doing better here, but this track suits them and it's not demanding for the engine. Let's hope they keep improving like this. :)

What does everybody think of the Bernie Ecclestone case and the fact he is not in Australia for the race?

From the couple onboard I've heard, the Mercedes engine sounds great. Not so convinced by the Renault unit on the Red Bull.

I've been really enjoying watching FP 1 and 2. The cars look much more ragged and on the edge, using all the track and fishtailing on exits. I hated how last year's cars were on rails. Plus, the tyre squeals are awesome! You can tell which cars have reached their grip limit. I'm also quickly getting used to the noses, they're not too bad...
