the "F1 is all about Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull."
"Finally it is time."
"For Formula 1, 2019 and a new battle between the three mästarteam."
"After a long winter, eight testdagar and a couple of trainings is F1 ready for the start of the season in Melbourne, Australia. On a course that tends to mean surprises, but that does not give any real indication to the rest of the season."
"There are three teams whose six drivers will fight for the CHAMPIONSHIP title. The only question is if we can get a fight going on all the way into december or if it is like last year will end shortly after the summer break?"
"we Go back a season, it was Ferrari who was the best prepared. Sebastian Vettel had a grip on the world CUP in the spring, he drove into the pole position, he won the race and he led the world CUP."
"But when he was in the lead of the German GP at Hockenheim, he made a miss in the rain, drove by and broke the race."
"the Ferrari and Red Bull against Mercedes"
"Where was held the world CUP-the fight. Mercedes Lewis Hamilton won the race and after the summer, dominated the he championship before he won his fifth title. In the years chasing he and Mercedes its sixth straight victory in the konstruktörsmästerskapet, a feat no other team has ever managed since F1 started in 1950."
"But against him, and Valtteri Bottas is the Ferrari that fills 90 years, has a new management team, a budget and a Sebastian Vettel, who after two straight runner-up finishes to win his fifth world title- in his fifth season with Ferrari. Historically, two of the team's drivers managed it, Mike Hawthorn in 1958, and Michael Schumacher, which started its success story with Ferrari in his fifth season in the team in the year 2000. Then the won the Italian stables five world CUP titles in a row."
"The road to Sebastian Vettel and his new team colleague Charles Leclerc hike, but then it is required that the team keeps focus on the championship and not once again fall into internal power struggles that have a tendency to affect the result on the track."
"At the side of the Mercedes and the Ferrari are to be found Red Bull, although the team themselves believe that they are in front of each other. The frispråkige motorsportkonsulenten Helmut Marko, one of the leading forces in the Red Bull, pointed out this week that he expects that the team can win five races during the first half of the season."
"Keep an eye on Kimi Raikkonen"
"During the first testveckan impressed with the team, the momentum seems to be, Max Verstappen has been given an additional year of experience and the new motorpartnern Honda wants back to the top. The cooperation has also done to Red Bull for the first time in 14 years has the same status as a fabriksteam, because Honda only supplies engines to moderteamet Red Bull and systerteamet Toro Rosso."
"Where does that leave us for the premiere?"
"With a season where three teams have good chances to win the race. Behind them, an Alfa Romeo, which has a close collaboration with Ferrari, a good car and a motivated 39-year-old in tip-top shape. Kimi Raikkonen won a race with Ferrari in the autumn, and he has the capacity to take care of the important points that can overturn the situation in the CHAMPIONSHIP fight Add to that a Renault towards the top – and the new rule where the fastest lap gives an extra world CUP points if the driver is placed in the poängplats.nSå pull off the season now. We are ready for the fight – F1 2019. "
"As ranked teams for Formula 1 2019"
"1) MercedesnDe last few years we have all left vintertesterna with a big question, how much have Mercedes been hiding for their competitors? Every year, the answer was: quite a lot. So is it also in years. Mercedes performs in a completely different way in Melbourne compared to in Barcelona two weeks ago and are a team with the ability to develop during the season. Therefore, it is one of the favorites for the title again this year."
"Showed up a well-balanced car that was fast, both on one lap and on longer stinter during the tests. The feeling persists, even if Red Bull and Mercedes look at least as good. It can be a fantastically consistent season."
"3) Red BullnBilen look harmonious and well balanced, but the big concern is the engine. In the year running with Red Bull with an engine from Honda, a manufacturer that has had several difficult seasons behind him since his return to F1. During the training, reported Pierre Gasly that the engine lost power, how great a concern is the Honda?"
"4) Alfa RomeonKimi Raikkonen in an Alfa Romeo, which also looks to have a good balance and is quick on the track. The cooperation with Ferrari seems to have provided yet more results and in combination with the former Finnish world champion, it feels like it could be a poängvinnande of the constellation. He is said to have Antonio GIovanazzi in full control."
"5) RenaultnDaniel Ricciardo recruited from Renault, while Nico Hulkenberg is one of the drivers that are really good, but not have had the material to take the podiums. Renault has made a huge bet, the objective is 2021 and in the years approaching the podium. Now it is up to the evidence."
"6) HaasnDet american team has partnered with Ferrari, and it has given results. Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean have opportunities in years, it comes to take them."
"7) Toro RossonInför this year's season has Toro Rosso collaborated even more with Red Bull and 70 percent of the car comes from the moderteamet. It should provide results and Daniil Kvyat is back in F1 after a year as a simulatorförare of Ferrari. He is experienced enough to fight for points."
"(8) the Racing PointnDet was one of the surprises in the autumn and the knowledge to create very small conditions are there, but during the tests and the initial training sessions have neither the team, Sergio Perez or Lance Stroll has been near poängplats."
"9) McLarennCarlos Sainz is a good driver, but how good is the McLaren? It is the big question ahead of this year's season. Debutante writer Lando Norris will not be able to threaten him, but it is doubtful if they reach the score."
"(10) the WilliamsnTeamet is so long after Robert Kubica and the talent George Russel can only sigh for the misery. During the second training session of the missing team as 1.8 seconds.nInte to lead, but to Lando Norris on the spot 18. The stable was 3.8 seconds behind the lead, last year it was the team of 1.6 seconds after the lead at the same time. It required a miracle that Williams should not be in the last track."
