Manor is no more:

Unfortunately, the current financial contracts that favor the huge teams and squash the small innovators will remain in place through 2020.

But at least the Poison Dwarf is gone and Ross Brawn is in charge of the motorsports side of things.

Oh how I hope that Bottas in the best car will just show heels to Lewis.

To no-one's surprise, the new Mercedes is the quickest car.

Yeah, but McLaren has real Can-Am McLaren orange on the car.

I'd like to think that the M8F would be quicker (sad); I know it would be louder.

The McLaren might be a nice colour, but the Honda in the back was still giving troubles over the testing. They were on their 3rd engine by the 2nd day of testing while the Mercedes just kept pounding around the circuit.

So far it's looking like Ferrari are pretty competitive.

Of course, this time last year it looked like they were ahead, and we all know how that turned out....

Ferrari always seem to go for the headline times in winter testing while others are holding their cards closer to their chest.

Stroll bent the Williams a little too frequently. Red Bull seem to be missing a lot af aero tweaks - they may turn up at the next test or even at the first race with a lot more bolted on the car.
