    Big boys finally launched. Mercedes rear packaging looks much tighter. Supposedly they redid their power unit to make cooling more efficient.

    Williams is already behind the eight ball. Missed their filming day shakedown and now won't run the car tomorrow on the first day of testing.

    Also won’t run during the second day of testing either.

    I guess if they show up with a quick car it will have been worth it, but that seems unlikely.

    Vettel and Ferrari certainly laid down a marker this morning.

    Eh, it's preseason. They always look strong while Mercedes put-puts along, then fall into the middle of the lead pack come Australia.

    I'm not giving it too much weight, but it doesn't hurt to be fastest...

    Now looks like Williams will miss part of the 3rd day of testing and won't be ready until mid day on day 3. What is Paddy Lowe doing? Since he's taken over, Williams has been horrible. They need to just be bought out by Mercedes and become the official B team now.

    Williams is pretty much the only purely old school family team from 50 years ago as the Williams family is still heavily invested in its operations.

    Sad to see where it is at the moment.

    21 years since they've won a WC!

    Or maybe they get their own shows? Mercedes would be good. They're quite good with the media. Of course Hamilton would know what to do with every second of screen time he gets. Ferrari would be good too.
