It hardly qualifies as a surprise that Charles Leclerc will be quick but I do think the big surprise he is going to spring is how quickly he will get up to speed in races and how consistent he will be through the season,
He is going to give Sebastian Vettel a lot of competition but I think Australian is maybe just too soon and Vettel will take the chequered flag and the first win of the new season.
Good race for Bottas. Little bit boring but I can see potential for the season. Really close from 6 to 11th that looks good for future races. Redbull do look good. Ferrari need to sort what ever they lost.
I think it was an average race. It was better than last years race but that was a poor below average race. There was still not much happening at the front here once Bottas got ahead of Hamilton but at least there was some good racing and passes in the midfield.
