Voted Leclerc. If Ferrari have found their mojo then it’d be nice to see a new kid win the race.

I really have no idea how this race will go based on testing. Gut says stick with Merc & Lewis, but I'll hold off on the vote for a bit.

I feel like Merc is going to have a slow start to the season but will LH will take the title home in the end as he gets more acquainted with the car. I'd say he'll be in perfect shape by the time Canada rolls around (one of his best tracks).

I'm going to say Max because I really like that people are undermining the Honda PU and it's going to sneak up and kick ass!

Here's to hoping! haha.

Nothing more I'd love than to see Honda win. Would love to see Zac Brown shed a tear and Alonso too for the way they treated Honda.

Mercedes top second practice too as Ferrari appear to be sandbagging
