4 Of The Best

4 Of The Best | Formula 1 Journal | Scoop.it

What an incredible first 4 races! The start of the season suggested McLaren might be the team to beat this year, and I'll come out right off the bat and declare myself a huge Jenson Button fan. However, I can only be delighted at how open the Championship looks right now. 

 

Jenson won in Australia, however things changed in Malaysia under wet conditions, and Fernando Alsonso once again proved why he is such a great champion. Ferrari is the 4th team in order of quality at the moment, yet Fernando managed an epic win, with Sergio Perez deserving an honorable mention for his first podium coming in 2nd.

 

In China it was all Rosberg and Mercedes. Were it not for the mistake at the pits on Schumacher's car, we would have most likely had a Mercedes 1-2 with Rosberg winning his first Grand Prix in over 100 races, and the 7 time world champion returning to the podium since 2006. It wasn't meant to be for Schumacher, but his time will come this year for sure.

 

We really didn't know what to expect in Bahrain, and the sense of 'anything could happen' proved to be correct when Vettel rose from the ashes to take the Pole and Win, proving that RedBull can in fact challenge for the title once again. It was the second time in a row when the Pole man won the race after Rosberg. Honorable mention goes to the Lotus Renault cars who had an amazing race, finishing 2nd with Kimi and 3's with Grosjean.

 

Two weeks from now, the European season starts in Barcelona, and who knows what the F1 Gods have in store for us! To keep the trend going, I would love to see Raikkonen snatch the win!
