    Puma taking a much larger piece of RBR sponsorship this year (it's a shame they gave them such poor quality suits)

    That Halo thing should have been on the open wheeled cars since.....forever. Also i'm interested on seeing how the racing is with the new pavement at The Glen.

    Mhm, i'm gonna miss the old surfacing tho. But there is gonna be more grip, which should help around sharp turns.

    Based on the twitter reaction F1's new elimination qualifying failed miserably and they are going to back to how it was last year.

    ...aaannd Daniil Kvyat is out before we even get started.

    and an amazing start by both Ferrari drivers, P1 and P2 at the end of the first lap! Rosberg P3, Hamilton down to P6. I couldn't have hoped for much better.

    How about Haas F1, pulling out 6th place and some championship points in their first race. I'm hyped.

    Here's a fun fact your you guys. As of the 2016 Australian Grand Prix, Nico Rosberg's career points total is 1234.5
    I thought that's pretty cool.
