As usual, pre-season testing has thrown up as many questions as answers but that is part of the fun and intrigue as we head into a new season. The paddock has been full of people trying to dissect short and long runs while applying all sorts of fuel and tyre corrections. Ultimately, as the saying goes, when the flag drops, the bull**** stops and it will all shake out once the Qualifying session in Melbourne will start.
We once again seem to have two distinct classes. Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull do appear to be in a class above the rest but the battle between them is going to be tighter than ever before. None of the teams have had a clean run through testing with Ferrari suffering some reliability issues, Mercedes lost time to an engine change and Red Bull had to contend with two sizeable accidents from new boy Pierre Gasly leaving them with a lot of damaged parts, especially with the gearboxes.
Join us for the latest updates and results from the Albert Park Circuit, as the qualifying session for the 2019 Australian Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc at the wheel of the SF90, ready to challenge Mercedes and Red Bull for pole position ahead of the race on Sunday.
