Ferrari in better shape than 2018: Vettel

Lewis Hamilton in practice in Melbourne

Ferrari unveiled the 90th-anniversary logo for Formula One's season-opening Australian Grand Prix on Wednesday after ditching branding by a tobacco giant's subsidiary over a potential breach of cigarette advertising laws. After a winter trying to forget the 2018 season, Bottas said he returns to racing this year with a new mindset.

Mercedes struggled to keep pace with Ferrari in winter testing, and although the pre-season action has a reputation for delivering misleading clues as to the real pecking order, Hamilton added: "It wasn't hard to read, it was clear". "We recognize this won't be an easy task because it's shaping up to be one of the closest midfields we have seen for a long time - with just a few tenths separating a handful of teams".

"We had our weaknesses last year here and there and we obviously try to fix those and do much better this year". "We're going to be kind of chasing".

"Last year's winter testing didn't go well. It is the second debut for me after being away from the sport for many years".

Shaw, from Witney, England, was last seen before dawn Thursday in the town of San Juan La Laguna, on the shores of Lake Atitlan. He added: "We urge anyone who may have any information, no matter how small, to get in touch as soon as they can".


"I hope to enjoy the weekend and that everything will run smoothly without any big issues so I can concentrate on my driving and discover a new Formula One. Its always nice to kick off the season with a good result".

Motorsport Week begins Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix preparations with a trip to a Melbourne hotel to catch up with Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas.

"Charles will do his best for himself and the team - it is the same for me".

Measles outbreak continues through NZ
Health officials recommend you call ahead to make sure locations have the vaccinations and staffing available to immunize you. Canterbury Primary Response Group coordinator Dr Phil Schroeder said Canterbury had high levels of vaccinated people.


While Ferrari are predicted to be the early-season frontrunners, the rest of the pecking order is far less well defined.

"We are immensely proud to announce this exciting partnership with the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix, which shares numerous same values as St Hugo, a fine wine created to honour the love between a father and son to continue on his winemaking legacy", he said. The Innovation and Technology Hub offers people a chance to delve deeper into the technologies hidden behind the construction of a racing auto and get to meet the representatives of a few start-up companies that have managed to make a name of themselves in different industries. We won't know for sure until this weekend. It matters who improves the most.

"It's good that they've just restricted it to the top ten".

"I'm very relaxed too, only I want to get back on track finally", Leclerc said. "In terms of performance, it's hard to judge where we are".
