Race Preview – Bahrain, by Jack Lowe #KeepFightingMichaelPosted : Monday 2nd April 2018 14:41:52 pm GMT

Last Time Out

Despite an emphatic pole lap it was Vettel who snatched victory from Hamilton in the first race of the season down under, the Ferrari man capitalising on a glitch by the Mercedes team under the VSC to take the lead. From there it was almost impossible to overtake as position was key around Albert Park. Raikkonen held off the charging home favourite Ricciardo to take the final podium position.

Other notable performers in Australia were Fernando Alonso who came who in an excellent 5th position for McLaren at the start of their new era with Renault, and Nico Hulkenberg who finished in a solid 7th place behind Verstappen. It was a weekend to forget for Valtteri Bottas who crashed out in Q3 and could only recover to 8th in the race, he’ll be hoping for a much better outcome this time out. Top 10 – Vettel, Hamilton, Raikkonen, Ricciardo, Alonso, Verstappen, Hulkenberg, Bottas, Vandoorne, Sainz.

Bahrain

Last season it was Vettel who won the night race in Bahrain after a costly 5 second time penalty for Hamilton ended his hopes of challenging for the win. Bottas made it a double podium finish for Mercedes but ended some 20 seconds adrift. 2018 podium forecast – 1.Hamilton, 2. Vettel, 3. Bottas

Fantasy Game

Vettel’s win makes him the top scorer from round 1, amassing a total of 293 points with exactly half the number of picks compared to his main rival Hamilton – 344 to 688! This has seen his price increase to £15.41, making it little to choose between them. Ricciardo backed up my tip for round 1 with a solid return on the £10.5 investment, scoring 183 points (aided by the fastest lap bonus). However, he was the least favoured out of the 2 Red Bull drivers – food for thought perhaps for those on strategy 1? Alonso was the best value for money, with his 5th place finish earning him 163 points for those of you who picked the McLaren driver.

The 2 Haas drivers impressed until their misfortunes in the pits, seeing their prices drop as a consequence of their double retirement. Could Magnussen and Grosjean represent good value for the coming races? My tips - Hamilton (16.23), Magnussen (7.76), Verstappen (10.67).

Will those of you on strategy 1 stick or twist after round 1? Don’t forget to make those bonus picks! Enjoy the race!

Race Preview - by Jack Lowe #KeepFightingMichaelPosted : Saturday 17th March 2018 16:23:37 pm GMT

The drama is almost upon us as Albert Park plays host to the traditional curtain raiser in Formula One. Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel will both by chasing a 5th driver’s title whilst their team- mates will be hoping for a more competitive season this time out. Can Renault provide Red Bull, who arguably boast the strongest driver pairing on the grid, with an engine capable of mounting a title challenge? Similarly can they make McLaren and Alonso competitive once more? Testing has given us an idea but now the true picture will emerge as to who will be the leading contenders for the season ahead. The significant change for 2018 is the introduction of the highly controversial halo, what if any impact this will have only time will tell.

My top 3 prediction – 1. Hamilton, 2. Bottas, 3. Vettel

Australia

Last year it was Vettel who emerged victorious in the Ferrari, ahead of the two Mercedes drivers Hamilton and Bottas. After a season of such promise it wasn’t to be for Vettel and Ferrari, can they go one step further this time round?

Fantasy Game

As ever choose your strategy wisely, will you want to tinker during the season or will you stick with your drivers and use that extra cash effectively? Hamilton is the most expensive pick coming in at £16M but is he too valuable not to choose? His closest rival Vettel comes in at £14.25 whilst Bottas is slightly cheaper at £13.75M. The 2 Red Bulls come in at a budget friendly £10.5M. Which of the big hitters will you back? Other noticeable prices include the two McLarens at £7.75M, the 2 Renaults at £8.25M and the 2 Toro Rossos look good value at £5M for those of you tight on the purse strings!

My picks (strategy 2) – Hamilton, Verstappen, Ricciardo, Alonso

Good luck for the season ahead and don’t forget to make those bonus picks!

Let’s go racing!
