Below are some of the most obvious questions every Formula One fan and pundit is asking now that the action is about to start. Most likely, you also have the same questions in mind if you are an avid F1 fan:

1.     Will Ferrari Turn Up?

If the term underwhelming required a new definition, it would aptly fit Ferrari’s season in 2016. After a promising start with and proclamation that the Scuderia could at last challenge Mercedes’ dominance, all hopes went up in smoke. By the end of it all, it was obvious the main driver, Vettel, was out of sorts even with the team.

His expletive-laden laced rant to the team in the Mexican GP showed just how frustrated the German was. The question on everyone’s minds now is whether Ferrari will match Red Bull after giving up its 3rd place constructor’s position last year.

2.     Can Renault Recoup with Hulkenberg?

There is no denying that Nico Hulkenberg is the unluckiest driver because he never gets a top seat yet he is one of the most decent drivers in F1. A look at what he has done with Force India is just evidence enough that the Hulk can fight for podiums with the right car. It is no wonder Renault, which has had a poor year, has made a swoop for him. Is this going to be the impetus Renault needs to make a comeback?

3.     Does Stoffel Vandoorne have an X-factor?

There is no denying that fans were delighted when Stoffel Vandoorne stood in for Fernando Alonso in Bahrain 2016. He was impressive and now with a top seat, it remains to be seen whether the Belgian can push the new car to its limits. In Alonso, he has a great teacher and he can still push the Spaniard to the edge to claim bragging rights.  What you can bet on is that the Belgian has nothing to lose and you might just see another Max Verstappen on the track.

4.     Is this the Year Max wins it?

It is too early to write off the likes of Vettel and Hamilton, but if 2016 was anything to go by, you can expect a lot of thrilling races from Max. The Red Bull driver is an asset to every team and it is no wonder Mercedes did not even dare look in his direction when looking for Nico’s replacement.  Max is on a learning curve and it is no secret that he is learning fast.

Criticism aside, what did everyone expect when giving a teenager a car that makes a road supercar fade in comparison? He is learning and this might just be the year Hamilton starts feeling the heat.

So what’s on your mind about the new season? Do you think it will be more exciting? One thing is guaranteed; the cars will be faster so the thrill will increase for sure.
