no doubt the early season back and forth means that the decision to really push the development over the season has also been made by both (rich) teams. looking forward to the new packages they come up with for the European leg.

hevent seen a two team development race in a long time! this season is shaping up very nicely!

Seeing the apparent love-in that's going on between these two at the moment I think the thread title should be changed to Vettel 4 Hamilton (Like we used to write on the school desks when we fancied one of the girls!)

Yesterday, was round two to Lewis. It seemed like he had it all under control. Flawless performance there. Pole, lead every lap and won the race.

Vettel was also pretty good - apart from the start. He managed those mega moves without DRS, suffered a pitstop of 25 seconds and still finished second and 42 seconds in front of his Ferrari teammate.

It's still early days - but I'm pretty sure that it's going to be Vettel versus Hamilton this season. It does look like the Mercedes is probably better at qualifying, whilst the Ferrari is better at following cars in the dirty air - at least at this moment.

Next race is Bahrain. The hot weather suits the Ferrari. A Ferrari 1-2 is definitely possible.

It's only possible, if Kimi gets his act together. Here's hoping that he does.

Lewis and Seb sitting in a tree - K-I-S-S-I-N-G! Or, maybe taking each other out at the first corner?

I wonder if they'll crash into one another this year?

A second win for Vettel and he is now back in the lead. A good performance from him. It made up for yesterday's qualifying. Seemed to have superb race pace and a good call on the first pitstop and also a better start than Lewis.

It seems like it's going to yo-yo between these two all season long.
