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.

Haven't posted on this thread for awhile now. Monaco was of course another win for Seb - and a good performance to take a win from his teammate Kimi there. Strong stuff - especially as Kimi seemed to have found his mojo that weekend.

Canada however, that Lewis' weekend. Just so strong. On another level. Qualifying showed it, and the race. Good fightback from Seb, but Lewis won that day.

Seb still has a decent lead in the championship, so for the moment, Lewis has still play catch-up.

We can expect at least one car failure between each of them this year. So that might play a factor.

There's just too much hugging, ass kissing, handshaking and praising going on between the two. It's just not right. Not what F1 needs.

Right! Thank goodness that's all over with.

It was clear from the beginning the respect between the two was genuine from one side, and just an act from the other side. So now that true colours have been aired out for all to see, let's get back to normal rivalry shall we?

No contest - it's Hamster man! Things are really close now - 1 point between them. Mercedes seem to have the faster car - especially in clean air. Ferrari need to either have better qualifying or make better starts - as well as sort out their tyres.

Ferrari need to improve their car or it'll be another Mercedes benefit for the rest of the season

Which is which? Who has the genuine respect, who is the one putting on an act?
