2017 Formula One Season

Formula One 2017

The 2017 Formula One Season kicks off again on March 23rd in Australia

Coverage is split again this year in the UK with Sky Sports F1 showing all the races live and Channel 4 showing just 10 races live. This year sees the Monaco Grand Prix back on free-to-view. I still think Channel 4 should be showing the Australian Grand Prix though, its the opening race dammit!

I may have to upgrade my Sky subscription, I don't want to miss any and watching later or via a stream doesn't really cut it.

With the shock retirement of Rosberg last season, who will team up with Hamilton? Massa returning to replace Bottas, who'll join Hamilton? Rumours are that Bottas will team up with Hamilton at Mercedes. Wehrlein to race for Sauber in 2017

The fin on this car looks like they did not put any work in it. But thats my opinion :p

Tomorrow Mercedes will be launching their car, expecting a lot from them.

Looks very cool with the wets if you ask me.
What stands out on the WO8 in comparison with the other F1-cars released yet is that the Mercedes has almost no sharkfin.

As a Dutchie and Verstappen-fan my worst fear came true this morning Unhappy
"Mercedes has made unprecedented step with 2017 engine"

I can only hope Mercedes made a big mistake in their aerodynamics or other vital parts in the car, but that's probably false hope.
