We start with a clean sheet of paper for 2014, new engine regulations, slight aero modifications and a few new faces / team lineups for what seems to be an enthralling season of Formula 1.

Without further delay, let us walk through the Melbourne Grand Prix for 2014 (Please note - some stills and video may be from 2012 / 2013).

could be a chance of rain, but definitely a relatively 'cool' race. FRI/SAT look sunny

My weather sources also indicate a good chance of rain for the event, although it won't be particularly heavy rain. I'm thinking a damp Friday, and overcast for both Saturday and Sunday.

You've got to be kidding, that's about as risky as predicting all Pirelli tires on the podium.

Excited for the season to start anyway. Come on Australia!!

I have a strong feeling , even Marussia or Caterham has a chance to score some points in first race.

It's okay, mate. I'm predicting an all F1 car podium, so fingers crossed!

In November I predicted ALO-HAM-RAI in any order on Twitter, so I hope to get at least one of those guys on there.

Is it wrong that I can't wait to get up through the night to watch practice?

8 cars on the podium? I don't know if that's possible.

Rain predicted for race sunday atm.

Turbo-pwer in the rain with sh*t Pirelli rain tyres will lead to one long safetycar phase and or many crashes.

I hope it will be dry.
