Creating a new thread to share updates and discuss about Formula 1 this year. Race calendar: https://www.formula1.com/en/championship/races/2018.html Driver standings to date: https://www.formula1.com/en/results.html/2018/drivers.html Car rule changes for 2018: The 2018 season kicked off yesterday at Albert Park in Melbourne, Australia and in spectacular style. Hamilton managed to secure pole position, breaking an all time lap record in the process. This guy... damn! Lewis Hamilton pulled off from the line in first, followed by Raikkonen and then Vettel, He managed to hold on to his place, but the virtual safety car was deployed following an incident and Vettel was in the pit during this time (while Hamilton was still on the track - driving slow due to the virtual safety car). Hamilton had already pit the car by this time, so in essence, Vettel entered and exited the pit faster than Hamilton was on the track. This put him in front of Hamilton who was stumped, thinking what just happened. With Hamilton's tyres 7 laps older than Vettel's, all the Ferrari had to do was hold on to that position and continue the race. And that was what he did. Aussie boy Daniel Ricciardo finished qualifying 4th, but received a fuel irregularity penalty and suffered a 3 position loss on the grid, but he finished 4th, overtaking Max Verstappen who spun his car during the race and ended up finishing 6th.
