Perez has street form, but you still expect it’s another Max win.

Should be more interesting though, purely through the guaranteed site of SC/red flag, bunching the race up, which invariably causes more incidents and talking points.

The race is going to be won or lost by the braking-rotation-acceleration challenge offered at T1-T2 chicane, T13, T22 and T27. Just 4 corners are going to be key. Expecting Ferrari and McLaren to be the challengers to the RedBulls.

Curious to see how the pecking order changes in a track like this.

With late 2023 cars it would be a Mclaren track(for best of the rest), but the Ferrari has very different characteristics this time, it's much better on high speed stuff.
And of course will we finally see the "properly cooled", "closer to the ground" Mercedes?

Ferrari will be much more competitive, both over a lap and in the race. In a track with 0 tire deg, they should be in the mix to be fighting for a win. This Ferrari can handle hard tires unlike the previous car.

Expecting a similar race to 2022.

Unlike RB19, the RB20 is very fast in straight line speed. I think Max was the quickest in sector 1 at Bahrain?
Likely be a close fight between Ferrari and RBR again.

I hope Haas will do well here as well.

Yep, curious what Lec (and Sai for that matter) can do without issues. It's gonna be lot
tougher to get a podium for Per I'd say.
Agree this one could be a whole lot closer. Then again, I don't believe Max has shown the true performance yet. He was literally driving to a delta ..

There should be some intense team-mate rivalry this weekend, and I am expecting someone to make silly mistakes on this track due to its narrow and high-speed nature.

Lec vs Sainz
LH vs GR
Yuki vs Ric

Hopefully someone can at least challenge for the race a little without discrediting how well Max drive. But seeing a battle for the lead would be good.

I think Max won't be on pole for starters ...

We haven't seen the true potential of RB20 yet, but my gut feeling is that RB20 is designed to be like a "transformer", where it can adapt to different track conditions very quickly with small tweak.

But I do hope Perez or Charles will be on pole.
