  1. God i love that Ferrari!

  2. great pictures here, im so excited to the first race =) and the first qualifying since! thats the first on track action i’ll see since im watching it on BBC, theres so many wild predictions this year based on practice and testing. At day 1 in testing everyone on the forum seemed to believe Button would be champion…now at practice here for the first race people are blaming him for the lack of speed in the car :S the same people that thought it was the fastest a month ago. Then after p1 i read people talking about how hamilton is a million times quicker and he;s brought the speed to mercedes because because he went half a second faster than rosberg….then in p2 rosberg was 4 tenths quicker, people are jumping to conclusions about this season before its already begun, from past experience i know you can be 10 races into a season and make a prediction…and turn out to be hugely wrong by the final race, so making prediction now based on testing, and now practice for just the 1st grand prix is ludicrous. Just enjoy how it pans out.

    1. @scuderia29 this is all part of the fun – where would all the banter be without wild predictions based on almost nothing

      for what it’s worth – I think Caterham for WCC and Hulkenberg for WDC… hmmm, based on nothing but random selection :)

      1. oh yeah theres fun to be had…i.e in the f1fanatic predictions championship
        i just dont like the way people act like they know who’s going to be world champion based on one practice session or whatever

      2. @mcgregski like @scuderia29 said it stops becoming fun when people take it to far and actually believe their wild ideas. Then actually want to argue about their ideas, after the first 4 races or so sure, maybe the ideas are warranted but doing so during testing and such…most people seem to do it to just trump up their team and annoy others, while some feel they need to be right about who will be on the top just to boost their egos it seems. The fun is the actual prediction championship on here and other forums/websites, not shoving ideas at people in the comment board.

        1. @MagillaGorilla yes! you explained it better than i could have haha

  3. Some great pictures there! Thanks Keith!

    Are the pictures copylefted?

    anyway, you did a good job of not showing the Infiniti sidepods in all but 2 pictures. :)

  5. Missed the massive influx of pictures on this site during the winter. Thanks as usual!

  6. Is it me or does the front of the Mercedes look a lot like a Platypus?! The shape of the nose looks odd – I hope its brings lots of speed to Lewis

  7. I believe this is Ricciardo, not Vergne.

  8. It’s such a shame that the Ferrari photographers are so bad, because their car for this year looks awesome. I mean, look at this one: backlight, tried to incorporate some building but now the building on the right has no roof, car randomly placed in the shot, nose of a Caterham coming around the corner, deep focus to accentuate the awful fences…

    1. @andae23 That isn’t too bad…It could really have been better though. Also the car coming around the corner is a Force India, not a caterham

      1. Whoops, eyesight is starting to go as well ;)
