    Really hope that Bottas can take the fight to Hamilton and make it a close title fight.

    That's if Mercedes is even still dominant, new regs could shake everything up.

    I think Mercedes will still have the strongest engine, but Redbull and Adrian Newey's chassis will definitely be closer now

    I'm really excited for Bottas, but I'm conflicted on Massa returning. I love Felipe, but I'm not so sure he will do great. Plus now that incredibly emotional moment in Brazil is kinda ruined now

    It's about time. As important Bernie has been to F1 in the past, for the last few years he's just seemed like a senile old man who has no grip on the modern world. I wish him the best, but it was time for him to move on

    Too bad you're probably not going to see much of it. But seriously, it does look stunning.

    It reminds me a lot of the 1996 Ligier, and that's a good thing

    This is gonna be a great year for liveries. We already have the new Sauber and an improved Renault, plus McLaren and Torro Rosso are rumored to be switching to new liveries as well, there a lot to look forward to this year

    The Renault looks even better than the Sauber. I'm liking the grid so far.

    With the way the black and yellow meet, the Renault livery also reminds me a lot of the 1999 Arrows
