I follow it regularly, but I don't actually "watch" the races.
Let's keep the thread going for this upcoming season.

Australian GP (3/20) is less than 2 months away!

Renault launched their 2016 car recently, but also said the color scheme could change (I actually think they should keep it like this):

Hamilton on pole for the season opener, with an all-Mercedes front row. Really hoping Ferrari can pull even with them this year, it would be a much more exciting season to follow.

Well that looked really good for Ferrari at the start, haha. Maybe this will be Rosberg's year?

I hadn't realized it had been that long (1986) since an American team competed. Nice start, although Grosjean admitted himself that the red flag/pit stops helped them get up there.

Yeah, but he's a pretty decent driver. If they give him a good car he'll always be competitive.

Hamilton with another pole. Guy's so good in qualifying.

Also, disappointed to see Williams slip a little bit to start the year. I had been quietly rooting for them last year, they were right up there behind the top two.

Yeah, honestly I would like to see a little more parity. I understand that each team bringing in their own design is an essential part of the sport, but it's hard to pay attention to a full season in the summer when you can predict the standings after 5 races....Fans can't see the motors, could we just standardize those and then have teams battle with aerodynamics?? The best drivers would still win, but at least it would be closer.
