We've been waiting for this weekend all off-season -- the start of the 2019 F1 season. F1 testing sessions up 'til now show Ferrari with the edge, Merc getting things together and Red Bull ironing out kinks with its packaging in order to maximize the new Honda power plant. Haas and Renault look to battle it out in the mid-field and McLaren has some pace which they hope to prove is real this weekend. Meanwhile, the IMSA 12hrs of Sebring is also taking place this weekend, as well as a World Endurance Championship race on the same circuit. This should be a great start to the full motorsport season.

On a sadder note, our thoughts go out to Charlie Whiting's friends and family, as he passed away this week. Charlie went from a Brabum engineer in his younger days to becoming the F1 Race Director, overseeing high level motorsport for decades. He not only watched over races, but worked with teams and drivers on regulation nuances, requirements, safety regulations as well as working with the circuits themselves to ensure they were as safe as possible for each event. He'll be missed, to all of us motorsport fans as well as everyone in the motorsport world that relied on his technical acumen and effectiveness in his multiple roles.

Enjoy your motorsport weekends.
