I think the first day of the new season was quite amusing. Lots of things happened, no real crashes but with Schumi's return there's things to talk about.

Oh and I just discovered something nice, FP3 will be broadcasted by RTL Deutchland (I love my digital television system !)

One stop strategies here. Oz will be harsher on tyres - maybe 2 stops

i think some crazy strategy could happen with people start stopping after just 9-12 laps....then around 32-34.....2 stops should be the way here because of tyre degradation

Tyre degradation here is low. Australia on the other hand...

Hamilton says: "Car feels good. It's very hot out there."

Button says: "It would be good to see someone else do a lap first."
