In the round-up: Esteban Ocon explains why overtaking is so difficult at Albert Park:
What they’re saying
Ocon was one of several drivers asked yesterday whether the extra DRS zone at Albert Park will make overtaking any easier. He gave this statistic which illustrates why drivers find passing so difficult at the track:
It’s extremely hard [to pass]. It’s close to two seconds the overtaking, you need to be two seconds quicker.

Surprised by how flat both Lewis and Sebastian were today talking to us lot (media). I know its not their favourite part of the job but it would be nice if they were a bit more excited about the start of the season for the cameras and microphones.
