    Just heard on an F1 podcast that it could be at risk? They've already moved the Australian Open, also in Melbourne, back by one month.

    That's a huge possibility. The vaccine will not get to Australia until March, they say, and seems like the second wave of the virus is slowly gaining ground again, not to mention the new strains that are bound to break out eventually.

    Storylines I'll be looking out for this season:

    - Red Bull's direction re: power unit supplier.
    - How well Alonso and Vettel do in their new seats.
    - How well Sainz and Ricciardo do in the new seats.
    - How will McLaren fare with their new Mercedes power units.
    - Which venue will replace the Vietnamese GP?

    Lewis' contract has just expired; technically he's a free agent now.

    What about that Max-Kelly-Daniil connection though?

    What about Max huh? Taking Daniil's race seat and ex girlfriend. Haha.

    In other news, Lando has COVID and I hope fully recovers.

    Wow, after 16 Bahrain GP in 17 years, since 2004-2020. The Kingdom of Bahrain will host the opening of the F1 2021 Season.

    I know it was a virtual gp, but that young Fittipaldi-Leclerc battle was still something. Hope that sim racing translate to real track for Albon, he was 4th. HAHAH

    Fernando Alonso got into an accident while cycling. I'm thinking it's a bit worse than it's being reported if they have to say "he's conscious". Parang it's not your usual semplang bike accident.

    It'd be a shame to miss him this season because you'll know he's going to bring it every damn race.

    For a couple of seconds there, I needed to hold my breath.

    I hope the initial reports are true that he just a lost tooth and a severe blow to the face.

    Speedy recovery ALO!

    McLaren showcase their F1 car, and a day later reveal their fabulous new Artura road car. With Danny Ric himself hooning it around a track. They’re just flexing right now, their financial situation notwithstanding.

    Oh, and that new road car has Apple CarPlay :cool:

    IMO, Alpha Tauri is winning the battle of the liveries(so far).
