After 4 months off we're back at it again for the 2017 F1 season. Rosberg rode off into the sunset after winning the 2016 Driver's Championship crown. Massa came out of retirement and back to Williams primarily because of Bottas getting Rosberg's seat. The cars are all new this year with the latest regulations, sans the halo technology tested sporadically over the last two seasons. Wide tires, mechanical grip is up, along with improved aero despite a lower rear wing. From practice it looks like Ferrari has brought more to the table, Red Bull is still very fast, but is AMG Petronas Mercedes still holding an ace up their sleeve? This is going to be a great season.

Enjoy your weekends.
